WIP Wed.

This is my first time to link up for a work in progress Wed. and I am doing so here at The Needle and Thread Network . I guess by now you know me well enough to know I always have more than one thing going at the same time , much more ;-) So for a little update on what I am working on , first off I am in the process of adding the borders to Henrietta Whiskers , the blocks have all been sewn together now and one set of borders is added with the others cut and ready to sew .
 The fabric I used for the border has trees so was perfect for these woodland characters . On the design wall you will also see some 6" blocks , I challenged the girls I quilt with on Tuesdays to make two six in. blocks per week and to use only the scraps they presently have, not to go buy anything so these are a mixture of fabrics and this idea came from all the Farmers Wife blocks I have seen in blogland , I do not own that book so am using one by Judy Hopkins called Around the Block .Some of the girls have done better at this than me ,oops , oh well I am trying to keep up , maybe I shouldn't have so many projects to do at one time . What else am I working on well lets see , I have alread shown both of these blocks and I wish I could say I have done something to add to these but that has not happened .
Then I have been working on my postcards which you can see in a previous post and I am taking part in an international Round Robin with crazy patch blocks and I will just give you a peak of the block I must make one for ,in the works but not enough to show you anything but this is what I am up against , quite incredible really.
I am also working on a stitchery that dear Kaaren of The painted Quilt so generously designed as a Friday Freeby ,I decided to do it in various colors rather than all one color this time as I love sunflowers and wanted to try to make it look like one .


 I have so many plans but so little time , I think we are all like that right. Enjoy your Wed. and thanks for stopping by .
 hugs Sheila

  2. You are working on many beautiful things. It still amazes me how many of us work on multiple projects at a time.

  5. Sheila, You are one busy lady! Your projects are turning out so nicely. I'm trying to get caught up on things too, but last night was spent in emergency with the hubby. He has a broken toe and also needed stitches:/

  11. I love seeing all the projects you have on the go. I don't know how people can only do one thing at a time. It would drive me crazy because I would be itching to do everything!

  12. I just love Henrietta Whiskers! I did go and download the patterns as I read that after December of this year, they would no longer be offered for free. I have no idea when I will get to them, but I do want to try one of these days! And all of your blocks are beautiful...really love the flower basket with the flowers in it. You do such awesome work, my friend!

    XOXO,

    Cyndi
