WIP Wednesday 5 in May? Yeah, 2012 is not the year of the blog for me, obviously. At least I’m getting one of these a month.
Four finishes since I last posted. Some stripey socks for me, which I made mostly at lunchtime at the office and now have taken to wearing around our over air conditioned office, both to the puzzlement of my non crafty co-workers. I’m saving the big super special butterfly quilt for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival (this Friday)! Sent out my 4×5 Bee blocks and wrapped up my first quarter as a Hive Caretaker, which was a lot of fun.
And just this weekend finished up Sunny Day Dresden.
I’ve really been on a dresden kick, haven’t I? Think it’s time for me to shift to a new project. Luckily, there are no shortages of those.
1. Wedding Quilt (Really needs a better name than that, but it just hasn’t come to me yet, suggestions welcome)
The borders are on, the batting is at my house, and I’ve got a friend coming to help me sandwich the beast this Thursday!
2. Scrappy Blocks
Finally settled on a zig zag type of design for these and I’ve been piecing them as leader/enders for awhile now. Seems I’ll be needing to make quite a few more though if I want this to go on my bed (and I really do!)
3. Black and White Values
New project? Nope, even better, two year old project being resurrected and finally getting finished. Decide that I ought to look through my abandon project boxes (yeah, there are four of them, boxes, not projects) before starting something new, and what do you know, I found projects that work for both of the cousin wedding presents I need to make!
4. Blue String Quilt
The second revived abandoned project. Sandwiched this last week and now it’s in the lap frame.
5. Socks- One of my crafting resolutions for 2012 was socks with heels. Well, we’re not even close to the heel yet, and I feel like I’m knitting with toothpicks on these size 1 needles, but at least I’m started on them!
Waiting to be Quilted
6. Super Star
7. Four Patch
8. Sweet Geese
Well, here’s hoping that extended summer evening sun will mean posts a bit more often. More WIP goodness at Lee‘s.
