WIP Wednesday

Joining a few others in WIP Wednesday - I will try to post all my WIPs, UFOs, Stash busters, stash builders [weak moment] and all kinds of projects. There may be some cross over to Weekend To-Do but remember how much I LOVE lists!

I am so excited to share my progress on the socks...this is a heel!!!


Took a quick sewing detour to whip up a plastic grocery bag holder. They were getting out of control in the pantry. I followed this tutorial. I had enough material to make another one and send to MIL!


My PJs were put on hold because I didn't have enough fabric and I was frantically looking for more. Finally found some but it was close! In the meantime, I pulled this UFO out - Patchwork Prism Quilt by Anna Maria Horner, be sure to watch her videos. I kind of strayed away from the values [which I regret now] but I am trying to make it work. I am also struggling with all the purple...not a huge purple fan so I am integrating some more teals and greens. This just shows me that I need to work on some more value projects.



**DO NOT SCROLL DOWN**  if you are offended by foul language.


I did finish my cross stitch project and my friend loved it! Using the waste canvas was great but it is tedious when removing it - if you follow me on Instagram you probably saw the mess. I loved doing this project and plan on doing some more gifts, unfortunately for more friends that are going through this. It's all in memory of my good friend Dottie - miss her so much!



This post series is inspired by Freshly Pieced and linked up over there!

  2. That prism quilt is gorgeous! Every time I see the one by Anna Maria Horner I swoon for it. Your pillow is fantastic--I lost a close friend to cancer in November and couldn't agree more.

  6. Some great projects you're working on. The socks are impressive, and I love the hexagon quilt with all the purple. Teals and greens are great picks to break it up a little. I also enjoy the bold statement on the pillow; straight to the point. Awesome.
