Wednesday WOW - August 25

My goodness!   Where has the month of August gone???


So.  Here is the worktable today . . . an absolute mess!  It is past time for me to take a cleanup day.  Finished a couple of projects this week, so now might be a good time.  Not that aren't more half-finished projects.  LOL!

Pieces of Friendship

I signed up to swap puzzle pieces with the Pieces of Friendship Yahoo group.  Pieces of Friendship is the brainstorm of Pat W and she hosted one of these swaps last year, too.   You can see more about these little puzzle pieces on this blog.

So, I spent some time making little crazy quilt squares.  I'm not really a crazy quilter, but I can embroider and I'm always drooling over some of the pretties out there.  Here are some of the pieces I made.


After I sent mine off, a package came back in a really reasonable time.  Wendy did a great job of coordinating everyone's pieces.  This is what I got back.


Starting at the lower left (blue) and moving clockwise, they are from  Wendy, Karen, Nicki, and someone who forgot to sign the back.  Oh no!  If you recognize this piece, let me know who made it please.

I tried to take closeups of mine and the ones I received, but apparently this is a skill I need to work on.  LOL!  Maybe I will figure that out by the next swap.  Here is what my Puzzle Wall is looking like so far.


Looking forward to filling up that wall.


P.S.  I started writing this post a month ago!  I needed to look up a web site . . . and then something else . . . and then . . . well, you get the picture!  Stumbled across it today, so you get to see it after all!

Wednesday WOW - August 11


It's too hot to go anywhere!  Too hot to do much of anything, actually.  But I got some work done on the blue stars at least.


The blocks are done and I've been playing around with layouts.  So many options!

What Was on the Worktable . . .

. . . but I forgot to take pictures for Wednesday WOW!  Aaargh!


If you look carefully at these two blocks, you may notice something.  They aren't the same size!!   And yes - they are supposed to be!  Another aaargh!

So, when I would normally be taking a picture for Wednesday WOW, I was ripping out seams.  NOT my favorite activity!


But, this project is progressing - however slowly.  Once the stars are finished, there will be some borders/filler blocks/and so on.  Still contemplating how to place them.
