W.I.P. Wednesday

Today its Wednesday again. Another week as past. Where has the time gone????

So I'm heading over to Freshly Pieced to join Lee in another W.I.P Wednesday post. 

 So what has happened this week for me. 

1. It was a long weekend in Australia for the Queen's Birthday weekend.
2. Our town had their annual winter races known as the June Cup. (I didn't go as I was happy to sew at home)
3. I had my Mum's sister and Brother in-law come to stay with her for the weekend.
4. My DH worked his 5 nights on over the long weekend so we only saw him occasionally.
5. My 4 year old decided that she was turning into a banshee and has I Don't love you anymore Mummy moments about every 1 hour. 

But I did happen to get some sewing done. Yeah!!!
1. I completed a crazy patch block for my Friendship Swap with Murray Mallee Quilters. I just need to add some embroidery stitches to finish off the block
2. I happened to complete some more sewing on Archie's quilt. Top is yet to be finished but it is closer. I will post a picture when I get the top done.

3. I worked on my Quilt Block Swap for June - Massachusetts Star Block. I have nearly finished all the quarter square triangles and then I can finish off the blocks. I have decided to give my blocks (6) to the Quilts of Valor charity quilt.

4. I completed 2 hexagon diamonds for my quilt. I actually enjoyed this the most this week and was so happy to be doing this again. I so want to finish off this quilt so that I can have prime position on my bed.

Hexagon Diamonds Completed: 18 (out of 99)
Background Hexagons: 0
Half Side Diamonds: 0
Half Length Diamonds: 0

So for next week. I'll just wait and see. Hexagons are definitely on the cards. Have chosen the next lot of fabric for the next diamond. I have to pull out my machine some more and get going on some projects that have been lingering just so I can happily show some finished items off.  

Happy W.I.P Wednesday.


  1. Sounds like a busy week. Nice to have something to show for it, isn't it? Mom's have to have tough skin, don't they?

  2. My skin has gotten very thick over the past few months.

  3. Love your hexagon diamond blocks, really pretty colours.
    I think your crazy patch block looks great. I'm not a fan of that style either, but you have done a fabulous job. I love the way it is crazy but not too crazy!!!

  4. I know you think crazy patch is not for you, but you did a great job. It came together very well, colors and all. The hexies are looking good as well!

  5. That's a really pretty crazy block. :) And I always love hexies.

  6. i love your crazy scrappy block! so pretty!

  7. I love the crazy block. Nice shades of purple. I am loving the hexagons too! They are a work of love!

  8. those hexie diamonds look awesome
