WIP Wednesday: Grumpy

IMG_4189

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Okay, feeling a little crabby over here this morning. It’s been one of those weeks when there have been too many distractions and not enough sewing. I’m behind on my SewOff skirt, behind on another quilt commitment, and I’m not going to Quilt Market. Hmmmph.

Well, I’ll probably get over it. Eventually. Honestly, I’m kind of glad/not glad that I’m not going to Market. Because I do love Market, but there’s so much hassle that goes along with getting there. I’ll just need to remind myself of that frequently when the Instagram pictures start pouring in. LOL.

Anyway. What am I working on this week? Or maybe the more apt question is what should I be working on this week, but for one reason or another am not? Sigh.

Let’s start with this: The Fair Isle Sew-Along kicks off tomorrow! Yay! And it seems like a whole lot of you are joining in! Super excited to get started and can’t wait to see how my new version turns out with the red background. (It’s not too late to join us! Click here to pick up the pattern and you can be cutting with the rest of us tomorrow!)

Sew-Off skirt? Well, I started it. I’m loving how it looks so far, but just wish I would have gotten farther on it. (And taken a picture of it while it was still daylight out—sorry for the crummy lighting!)

Quilts? I’m working on one right now. Let’s just leave it at that. : )

This WIP Wednesday has been brought to you by the one-and-only Fat Quarter Shop. Who doesn’t love the Fat Quarter Shop? It was one of the first places I bought quilt fabric and it’s still one of my favorite online shopping stops, 7-plus years later. They’ve got everything, my friends. Everything. So go show them some WIP Wednesday love.

Giveaway: The Fat Quarter Shop wants to send you this fat-quarter bundle from Frances Newcombe’s new Utopia line from Art Gallery Fabrics! And it’s a good thing they’re not sending it to me first, because I might drool on it before I put it in the mail to the winner. Just comment on this post for one chance to win, and/or link up your WIPs below for a second chance. Good luck!

I can’t wait to see what YOU’RE working on this week! Here’s how to link up:
1. Link up any blog post or Instagram photo from the past week that features an unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. To link an Instagram photo, click the Instagram icon at the bottom of the link-up screen, and use the URL of your IG feed as the link (for example, my URL is www.instagram.com/freshlypieced). Please hashtag #wipwednesday and mention me, @freshlypieced.
3. If you are linking to a blog post, please link back here to my blog somewhere in your post.
4. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links, either IG or blog—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!

    Now retired, quilting/sewing every day….yes, every day. I never put the machine away and when I'm not sewing I'm thinking about it. I have lost my marbles if anyone finds them keep them as I'm loving my days just as they are. You are very creative and the need to sew/quilt just runs through your blood.
    Wishing you many days of happy sewing.

    The Fat Quarter Shop was one of the first places I bought modern fabrics – that was around five years ago – which really renewed my love of quilting and sewing! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love the colors and thanks for the give away. I completely understand being grumpy about not getting enough sewing time. I could use more sewing time as well.

    Pretty fabric! Thank you for not drooling on it, although human drool added to dog and cat drool really wouldn't faze me in all likelihood lol. LOVE FQS. LOVE. My first online fabric purchase and there have been and will be many more… 🙂
