WIP Wednesday

Pin It WIP -- Work in Progress...

I am stealing this idea from here. I think it's a good idea, and means I'll be motivated to get at least 1 blog entry a week...

In my last post, I promised photos of finished and in progress projects.

Molly's quilt is finished, but I noticed a tiny separation of the fabric, so it's still technically "in progress" (until it leaves on a jet plane tomorrow.) But here it is:I hope she likes it! She'll like crawling around on it, I'm sure. :)

Here's what else is going on:

The first is a whimsical Christmas gift that I need to figure out how to finish. I'm debating between panels or a pieced border. It will also get some embellishment with rickrack and buttons. I designed it myself!

What do you think?

I had a panel from last year, but since I am fundamentally opposed to panels, I had to come up with a way to modify it. Because the motif is of snowmen, I decided I'm going to try making snowball blocks to off-set the cute snowpeople. The fabric came today, so I suspect as soon as I figure out the above border dilemma, I will begin with this one:I really do think it will be cute when it's finished. And I'll learn a new skill (hopefully)...

My favorite extra special one is almost done! I also designed it myself, with some inspiration from this cheater nine-block technique. I can't show much, but here's another little glimpse. All it needs is the final chunky border panels and backing! I can't wait to get this to the quilters. I think I will have a hard time waiting until Christmas for its reveal. :)
I've got a couple ruffle butts in the works (they just need to be sewed down, but I'm debating changing the ruffle style)
And ideas for more of these

Steiger's work in progress is crawling. He keeps going to find Elli. Fortunately, she was gently harassed from the time she was 7 weeks old, and doesn't mind.

Look! He's holding her paw. :)

I'm now down 4 pounds since beginning Weight Watchers, and have found a fabulous pseudo-diet friendly recipe for Greek wedding soup! It was so good... apparently I heart orzo.
