WIP Wednesday

So, I've decided it's time to drop the WIP Wednesday week numbers. This week would have been #48, and that's getting into a range that feels a little too OCD to me. Because obsessively tracking your dozens WIPs is totally normal, but numbering your posts? Crazytown. So consider the numbering officially dropped!

New projects:

Secret project - I can't show you this one, and it's going to be a while before I can reveal it. But I can't resist showing you the fabric I'm using—Pear Tree, Thomas Knauer's upcoming debut line for Andover. I've had my eye on this line since the first sneak peeks surfaced a few months ago—how could you not fall in love with that sweet little bird? So I'm excited to be getting a crack at it.
12 Gifts of Christmas Project - new and complete! Come back tomorrow for a closer look and a tutorial.

Ongoing projects:

Elizabeth's swap mini-quilt• Halloween quilt

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
Summer Sampler
Hope Valley

No progress:
• Farmer's Wife QA (still on hold)
• Skill Builder QA (yep, ditto)
• Kaleidoscope QA
• Figgy Pudding quilt
• Wonky Log Cabin

This week's stats:
Completed projects - 1
New projects - 2
Currently in progress - 11

So I showed you mine—now show me yours! : ) Link up your WIPs below—don't forget to link back to my blog and show your fellow linkers some comment love. Have a great week!

  17. LOVE the green combination of fabric....it makes me think of my DD who loves, loves green. Must make sure she doesn't see it, else she want me to make something, lol. Like the idea of dropping the number, I never know if I'm I should number the same as people, or number based on my number....so generally I don't do either, lol
