W.I.P. Wednesday

Its that time of the week again and I'm heading over to visit Lee at Freshly Pieced for another W.I.P. Wednesday.

I so wanted to finish off some of my W.I.P quilt along tops or other quilt tops this week but it just did not happen.

I did get a chance to have a night away with DH in Adelaide which is a 6 hour drive for us. We had Indian for dinner and saw a movie just like the old times (pre kids) but it was too short. Not only did we leave behind a sick child for her grandparents but Mummy has come home sick as well. Blah!!!

But I so love long car trips as I'm lucky enough to be able to do some craft along the way. So I basted some hexagons for the next lot of diamonds. 

There was also a request this week for a knitted jumper and I found just the right color red for my little girl and my pattern on the trip over to Adelaide. 
I also had some extra time to start of the knitting and when I went to bed last night the back was nearly completed. I forget how quick it is to knit little people's clothing.

So here is hexagon diamond number 20 that was completed this week. 
And if you happened to be following my blog I was busily making an IPad and Accessories case for DH. Here are some progress shots. Still a few steps left and it will be complete. 

So next week I just don't know what I'll have achieved. I just wait and see. But firstly, time for me to heal and get better. I hate flu season.


  1. love love love the colors for the iPad cover! Nice Work. And I really like the hexi diamonds. How clever. Looking forward to seeing that one completed!

  2. I hope you feel better soon. The flu is the worst! Nice progress on the hexies!

  3. I wish I could make hexagons in the car but as I'm always driving it wouldn't work, lol.
    Love the iPad case, really love the fabrics.
    I hope you feel better soon.

  4. Hope you feel better soon! You've certainly been productive for being under the weather.

  6. Love the colors you are using for the iPad cover, and this is the first I have seen of Hexi diamonds. I really like them. Now to arrange for a long road trip. Visiting from WIP.
