WIP Wednesday

It is a new year and lots of projects on the go , too many I think . I am always tempted by the many wonderful free BOM's out there in blogland but of course I can not do them all , just not possible.
 I am working on the fall BOM Autumn's Bounty , you can find out more about this by clicking here .
I am almost caught up ,just need to finish off this last set of blocks. Can you see the mistake I made on one of these blocks , yep , picked it up wrong and ended up turning it all around to form a totally new block but I will take that apart and do it correctly.
 Then there was this block , much easier with less pieces.
I have also started to make the little houses , you can read more about them here  at Building houses from Scraps .I will have to say that PP these tiny houses is a chore so I may try doing it by hand instead .
 And finally I have started a landscape project , not large and not real detailed but I did enjoy the process .I am just giving you a sneak peak of that as it is not completed yet .
  I am linking up with Monika at the Needle and Thread Network for WIP Wednesday , be sure to stop by and see what others are doing . Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day , it is snowing here .
 hugs Sheila

  1. Beautiful projects as always, Sheila! Love the colors and fabrics you have chosen for your Autumn BOM. Those little houses are cute, too. That much be the "it" thing for this month...lot of people doing those! I'm still working on projects from last year. Hopefully, I'll get them all finished in the next week or two so I can start something brand new!

    Have a wonderful day, and enjoy that snow! :o)

    XOXO,

  7. My head aches over which "things" to try! I want to do 'em all! I've made my list and will work away at it. Good luck with all your projects. :)

  8. I really like your 'mistake' block. Isn't it amazingly different for such a small change?

  9. You are so right Sheila. I was excited about paper piecing the little houses but it is a chore and I was not pleased with the outcome plus it took a long time of which I could have been quilting. Don't know if I will continue working on them

  17. Great projects..I am making the little houses too but mine will finish at 6". I have some Jacob's Ladder blocks on the go and I seem to get them turned around frequently. It happened so often that I started double checking before sewing.
