Works in Progress Wednesday - June 6, 2012
It's been another crazy busy, but exciting week. A week of solo parenting, Cub Camp and a presentation for my guild have kept me running on all cylinders. I'm way behind on responding to comments, touring the linky parties I participate in and blog reading, but I'll get there!
I did finally get around to organizing my blogiversary giveaways -- you can enter on yesterday's post.
So the big question I'm asking myself right now is what am I going to finish for Friday's TGIFF! party? I'm hosting so I better get my arse in gear and finish something. I'm thinking it's time to pull something off the On Hold/UFO mash up list, but I'm not sure what yet.
For the week that was, there was not much progress on the quilt side of things.
Selvage pincushions - I made a couple of selvage pincushion cases à la Cindy @ Live A Colorful Life but I was too lazy to try the piping. Now I am trying to figure out how best to fill it. I think my opening is too small to fill so I may need to unstitch. I'm wondering if anyone has any advice about using crushed walnut shells for the filling. Do you wrap them or just pour them in?
Colour My World Cyan - Barely finished this one in time. June is brown - ugh! Why, oh, why did I pick brown? I think this might be the most challenging month to date. What on earth (ha ha) do you do with brown?!
Twelve Trees Quilt - No progress
Hudson's Bay Point Blanket Quilt - Just got a message that Fabricland is having a 50% off members' sale this week so that means I can get the rest of the fabric that I need for the backing. Woo hoo!
Modern Block Monday Sampler - This week was Selvage Strings by Bari Ackerman. While I'm sold on selvage projects and like this block a lot, it doesn't work at all with the rest of the blocks because these selvages are for print fabrics. Whoops! I'll be redoing the block with selvages of solid colours and use this one for something else.
