WIP wednesday (thursday report!)


I actually worked on a few projects yesterday while we had a bunch of rain from a little tropical storm.  No big deal.  Something about a rainy day and no committments makes me want to make a mess with my fabric!

First up, I've been working on some New York Beauty blocks for a little swap I'm in.  I'm afraid I'm liking it so much I'm not going to want to send it off. I guess I'll just have to make my own.  I just LOVE it!  Can I say that or does it sound lame?



I've been hemming and hawing about this fabric forever.  At one point I decided I'd do a tunic.  Then I decided to make another skirt.  But then my trusty tiered skirt would cut up that big gorgeous floral more than I wanted to. So I've been concocting yet another alteration to that pattern.  It's actually working and I'm rather tickled. 

Come back on Friday for sew & tell and the finishes!

I think it's ok to like what we make enough that we want to keep it.. That's why we keep creating things....and check it out there are two Dayna's commenting... It is rare to see another person with the same spelling!
