W.I.P Wednesday

It's that time of the week again. Bloggers from all around head over to visit Lee at Freshly Pieced for W.I.P Wednesday.

I have a confession. I am completely exhausted this week. Master L has taken to waking early again. So from 5:30am onwards our day (or should I say Mummy's day) generally begins when my darling cherub wakes up. Oh how I miss my sleep in. (I can call 7am a sleep in at our house)

So moving along...this week there has been a W.I.P finish. Yes that's right. I have finished another completed quilt. It went to its new owner on Sunday. The little girl in question celebrated her 5th birthday. This W.I.P started out as a challenge set by Moda Bakeshop and I never finished it until now. You can read more about it here.

I finished off Rose Star 4 using my 1800 reproduction fabrics. I have more cut but not basted.
With all the early mornings, DH was kind enough to let me go and have a lesson on a new project. I had so much fun. Now I have another W.I.P. Thanks to my special friend Michelle who hosted the lesson. You are the best and I just love your sewing space. Super jealous.

I spent the morning with Miss A at Kindergarten. It was my turn to help out. I cut up some hexagon shapes Tuesday afternoon for make some hexagon flowers. The little ones had fun pasting the material shapes into hexagon flowers on paper. Not everyone joined in but there was much enjoyment had by all who participated. I had fun too.


  1. I love that you used hexies in your activity in the classroom. Shouldn't come as any surprise, right? : )
    Very interesting woven look to the new project. Where does it go from there?
