WIP Wednesday Link-Up


Welcome back to Work-In-Progress Wednesday! What have you got for me this week, ladies? Link up below to show off your WIPs!

New Projects:
Mystery Gift Project, times 12
This is my scrappy project that I’m making as small gifts for, like, half the people I’ve ever met. Three are done, nine left to go. My goal is to make one per day until they’re done, which means, come next week’s WIP Wednesday, I should only have two left. Hold me to that!

Ongoing Projects:
Urban Lattice Quilt Along at Me? A Mom?
I love this quilt! And all I’ve done so far is mark my scrapbooking paper! : ) But seriously, even just marking the paper was kinda fun, in its own weird, tedious way. I really, really, really hope to have more time for this one in the coming week.

That Girl … That Quilt Along quilt
Well. I wonked my blocks. And I don’t know—I think I may have under-wonked. When you think about it, that might be the worst thing that could happen when you’re doing a wonky quilt. Because people might not realize the wonkiness is intentional, and will instead think I’m just a really crappy sewer.

But at least I may have set a new world record for most use of the word “wonky” in a single paragraph (and in some very creative new forms, at that).

STILL didn’t do anything with these:
Figgy Pudding quilt
Wonky Log Cabin

Completed tops STILL awaiting quilting:
Hope Valley quilt
Modern Meadow Baby Quilt
Fall Equinox (Fat Quarterly Quilt Along quilt)

This week’s stats:
New projects – 1. But it’s a gift! That makes it okay!
Completed projects – 0 sewing projects completed. HOWEVER, I did design a blog header and three buttons, put up my Christmas tree, decorated the rest of my house for Christmas, and do some serious shopping. So there. : )
Currently in progress – 8, up 1 from last week.

    The more I see that wonky block quilt the more I think I may have to make one. I think it will be lovely.

    The pictures of your scraps are great. I can't wait to see what they are.

    Don't be so hard on yourself! I think probably every one of us has over-committed in the making gifts department. I'm stressed too.

    PS I love the word "under-wonked"

    I have no progress – so I'm not linking up today..

    Way to go on the progress! I love the blog header! And way to go on the Christmas shopping…you are way a head of me!

    Thanks for hosting and happy WiP Wednesday!

    Anne Marie is right – we've all over-committed! I don't know if I'll get everything done that I want to. Next year I'll be starting WAY earlier and doing gift projects throughout the year. I hope.

    I love the blocks you've done! Always enjoy seeing your color selection, they are so bright and cheery.

    So I'm not the only one who keeps adding projects onto her to-make list? Thank goodness.

    The blog header and button you designed for Haiti Quilt In are just wonderful. You were very productive this week so pat yourself on the back!

    If you're concerned you've under-wonked (show a photo of your layout!), then just re-wonk 'em!

    Don't feel bad at all about not getting as much sewing done as you'd like! It seems like you have done a lot of "real life" and blog projects! This time of year can get so crazy! I can't wait to see your mystery gifts! You color choices are fab!
