WIP Wednesday

what a week it has been for me. i am glad that i have had some sewing to get me some what grounded.
this fun little pile came from making 2 bee blocks for a group that i am in. gotta love making hst.

i hope that she likes her blocks as much as i do.

i also made some burp clothes for some new baby's that were born in the past few weeks. my cousins were each expecting & they had their daughters just a little over 4 hours apart. just enough time that they don't share the same birthday.

i worked on my 3rd H2H quilt & got the top done. its a simple top that didn't take long at all. i ended up cutting out some of the castles and appliqued them to a solid green block. just a touch of whimsy for the center of the quilt.

now i need to figure out the backing and get it quilted and bound.

i also finished the last blocks for my Opening Day quilt. now i just need to lay it all out & get the top sewin together.

i have another friend expecting a baby girl soon & she is doing brown, orange & pink. i found this great print when i was in Boise a few weeks back.

i am pairing it up with 4 patches of brown & orange as well as a few with pink in them as well. she was very specific 'not to much pink.'

i have also started to hack up this stack of fabric. i picked this up in Boise as well. i am a huge fan of Sweetwater & i love their Countdown To Christmas line.

i am doing Rachel's quilt along over at ps i quilt. so far we have just been told to cut but i am looking forward to the end result.

that has been my progress this past week. i am looking forward to a weekend of sewing again. i need to prep my fabric for Sisters which is 2 weeks away. i can't believe it is that close. i am sort of freaking out wondering where this year has gone.

i have also had a few doctor appointments this past week. today will be my 4th one. lots of windshield time. i have issues with my health & when i was in Boise something new developed & so 3 docs & 4 appointments later we might have a solution to this new development. my whole health thing can become overwhelming if i let it. so i stay busy sewing a lot so i don't really think about it.

i hope that you are making progress on whatever you are working on. i have read a lot on blogs that people slow down in the warmer weather & don't sew as much. not me. i hate the heat so i live in my basement during the summer months & sew to my hearts content.

WOW, you sure have been busy. I really like your bee blocks, a lot of points to match, huh?

Goodness, what a lot of work you've gotten up to this week! And such lovely work - though I have to say, after doing my first quilt block with HST's this week, I'm actually not too fond of them myself (yours look so much neater than mine ... and probably took less than a quarter of the time I spent on them, lol!)
I am loving that third H2H quilt! Cutting my fabrics out this weekend and looking to make the blocks up by probably mon/tues. Need the top done by early July though as I need to work out how to quilt it on my machine (something I haven't yet done before! ... a little scary!!).
Hoping you are enjoying your sewing solitude this week - and that warm weather!!!

Wow you have been very busy. Looks like you have some great projects coming along. Good for you. I have health issues also. Your attitude is a big part of how you feel. Hang in there.
