WIP-it Wednesday #7

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

My morning of futility was spent trying to coax Daisy to go outside in the pouring rain and thunder. not a good start to the day. btw, i found a new thing she is afraid of: umbrellas.

Finished this week

  1. Super tote
  2. Here kitty, kitty table runner + bonus holiday table runner: I was going to write a tutorial for the cat block, but someone posted a comment saying that there are already a million tutorials for it out there and it kind of took the wind out of my sails. i still need to get nice pictures and put them in the shop. I am really enjoying making table runners though. like a quilt, but so much faster.
    Finished table runners. #wipitwed
  3. Wonky bee for Melissa: Melissa is making a gradient strip quilt. this one was more fun to work on than i was expecting. i assessed the pieces that were already built and decided to add to/assemble the pink and purple section. when i finished that one i made a couple more yellow strips and added them to the finished piece. i was able to use a fair number of strings from my scrap stash and more importantly, Daisy approves. (She kept sniffing the pieces. maybe someone else in the bee has a dog?)

Yardage progress

FYI: I'm rounding to the nearest 1/8th of a yard to keep the math simplified. i only count yards used per week from finished projects. Scraps don't count, because...well, they're scraps.
Used this week: 10.66 yds
Yards acquired: 0
+/-: +10.66
