Welcome to WIP Wednesday. First, let me apologize: I wasn’t able to get around and visit all of the links from last week. I really hate that, because I love that you’re all here to share, and it’s so inspiring to see what everybody’s been working on. But I’ve had swap deadlines, quilt-along preparations, and sick kids to boot (again!). I promise I’ll visit everybody’s links this time around, although I may not get there until the weekend. Don’t wait up for me.
So what’s been happening around Freshly Pieced headquarters? Well, you already heard: Sick kids, deadlines, yadda yadda yadda. Somehow I managed several finishes anyway. Not to worry, there’s plenty more where those came from.
Cutting instructions tomorrow, you guys! I can hardly wait! Check out just a few of the fabulous fabric stacks on display in the Flickr group. All that fabric is just dying to be cut up, don’t you think? : )Project Selvage
Since I spent the last week pushing to meet swap deadlines, I haven’t had much time for this. But I’ve had plenty of opportunities to think about my entry—and it’s starting to look really awesome in my head. Unfortunately, Spoonflower prefers .tifs or .jpgs over the “imaginary” format. But I have quite a few sketches and some rough digital drawings. I’m going to devote the next two days, hard-core, to getting these designs out of my head and officially entered into the contest. In the meantime, please enjoy this drawing by our budding artist-in-residence, Miss E. It’s loosely based on one of my Project Selvage sketches, and actually made me seriously consider entering a print that she made instead. : )
