WIP Wednesday - "Oh, I have a blog?" edition

Tell me if this is true for anyone else - sometimes Tuesday is my most (and sometimes only) productive day, just so I have anything to post about on Wednesday. Anyone else? :)

This week lacked in productivity. Due in part to the fact that I lost my only pair of glasses and am now reduced to wearing those awful Kmart reading glasses until my new ones come in. Bleck.

Anyway, last Wednesday, I did finish my skirt, and I Looooooove it, but I have yet to get even a reasonably good picture of it!!! I will post one as soon as I can get one!! It's a great skirt!

Yesterday, I made this weeks Skill builder block - #25 - Wonky Log cabin.

This was an extremely fun block to make! I wasn't sure it I would like this improv style, but I did!! I think I want to make another one...

Also this week, I did manage to FINISH off the last set of HSTs for E's King Size Zig Zag quilt!! Can I get a Hallelujah!!?!!!

This is what 763 HSTs look like. And I only had a total of 5 HSTs that were not usable. I think that's a pretty low percentage! So, the hard part is done, and now I will set this aside for a moment as I concentrate on making the two dresses that I must get done ASAP! I am going to get the baptism dress cut out today if it kills me. (And it might! lol!) Wish me luck!

Great wonky log cabin! Yours looks just picture perfect :-)

WIP Wednesday keeps me motivated to create for sure. :)
That is a lot of HTS! You CAN get a Hallelujah!

Good luck with that dress.

Nicole said...

Oh my goodness that's a lot of HSTs! Wow! I'm impressed.

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

I think that is one of the big reasons I don't like making clothes. Cutting out the fabric pieces nearly kills me :)

Yes- Tuesday is definitely the most productive day of the week. That's why I'm grateful for WIPs because it keeps me motivated to get something done. :)
I liked the improv block a lot as well. I may have to make a few more of those wonky log cabins. Yours turned out really cute.

Lee said...

LOL, that's me every Tuesday: "Oh, quick! I have to have something for my WIP Wednesday post!" Glad I can inflict some Tuesday motivation on the world.

Wow, 763 HSTs! That is ambitious! Can't wait to see how it turns out. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )

Love your wonky log cabin, and can't wait to see your king size pattern! Oh, and yes, Tuesday is my "cram it in" day for sewing as well!
