WIP Wednesday: Almost There

Hey, remember how one of my goals for 2012 was not to overcommit myself? To say no to things, like blog hops and swaps and such? Well, we're about halfway into 2012, and: Ha ha ha ha ha ha! That was a good one, wasn't it? Ahhhh, so funny.

Okay, so yes, I'm overcommitted. But I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel. This week I knocked several things off my list, and I'm about ready to polish off one more. Then I get a whole month or so in between blogging commitments. During which I can work on non-blogging commitments. Awesomesauce.

Completed Projects:
Bee block
Bee blocks - post coming tomorrow.

NY Beauty swap pillow
New York Beauty Swap - blogged here.

EZ Dresden project - blogged here.

New Projects:

Art Gallery Fabrics Fat Quarter Gang project. I'm so excited about my first tutorial for the Gang, which is running this Monday! You'll just have to hit the AGF blog on Monday to see what I'm cooking up. And while you're there, don't forget to check out the Gang's first tutorial, a body pillow by Rachel from ps I quilt.
