WIP Wednesday - June 12th Edition

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Happy Wednesday, y'all! Time to share what I have been up to and see what everyone else is working on!

I finished the wall hanging that I was working on last week... I will share that Friday, with Friday finishes :)

I have four new starts for this week:


This first one is a new cross stitch...not much going on there yet, but I swear to you that is going to be an eyeball! lol Yep..and eye. You will see, it is so cute!


Just started cutting into this...think Dresden! OOoooohh how I love them! lol. Giving Dresdens a second go with these beautiful fabrics and I am going to make ... what else...a table runner. This one is for me, though!


Making my little a dress... ok well, she is almost 12 but she is still MY little and well okay so I had to walk away from frustration, even thought the tut seemed like a monkey could do it. I just really suck at sewing clothes. I did it, it turned out awful, now I am trying to find a way to fix it lol. Even my little couldn't lie and say it didn't suck, so...yea.


Also, cutting into these ... think scalloped holiday bunting! The bunting bug has bitten me again! That one is right up there with table runners! lol

And I had to share with you my favorite Instagram pic of the week! This is our kitten Tesla. He is a mischievous little shit but then he cuddles with you, licks your nose, and scents your cheek. I think the kids taught him how to get away with things! He is so sweet and adorable, he was playing in some scraps here when I was cutting the above fabric:

That's it for this week... I think that's enough, don't you?

This week's stats:

UFOs: a lap quilt, a toddler quilt, and an ugly table runner lol

finished this week: dresden wall hanging

New starts:  bunting, runner, dress, and cross stitch

  3. I would love to be able to sew my own clothes, but haven't worked up the courage to try yet. You are a braver woman than I, so congrats for even trying.

    You have some great fabrics picked out there.

  4. Those fabrics for dresden definitely caught my eye too and those pins. You got so many pins in the dress. Sorry to hear it didn't work out.

  5. I do make clothing but sometimes the tutorials assume a lot--you should try actual patterns before you give up entirely. Simplicity is generally good, as well as Burda.

  11. Cats are adorable and detrimental to my quilting. The instant I start working on anything, a cat is sure to come in and plonk herself down on it, then look up at me with a "whaaaaat?" expression.

    Love your WIPs - yay for Dewberry Heirloom! :)
