WIP Wednesday

Wednesday seems to roll around so quickly , seems like I just posted for this but here we are again. So what have I accomplished in the past week , well my most important accomplishment was finishing all those pinwheels and getting them sewn on my Stay at Home RR hosted by Sunny . Do you want to see , sure you do .
There you have it , ignore all those little blocks on the right hand side , I have been making six in. blocks but have been slack the past while so there they sit .
 I also did sew on all the leaves on the penny rug BOM with Melody  and started on the wool project with Shell of Raspberry Rabbits , didn't take a picture of that so will share that later .
 I have all the applique completed and the quilting done on my welcome sign and am in the process of sewing down the binding as you can see here.
 I really love this little project and will have this hanging real soon.  Then I decided to do something for the one Christmas project a month with Narelle so since my month was slipping away real quick I went for a quickie , Oh I know I am kind of cheating but something small is better than nothing right. So this little stocking was the kit I won recently and it went together nice and easy and it is cute .

The pattern calls for two of the bows but I found that a little much so just sewed on one. Are you getting tired yet , well don't fall asleep quite yet , today at sewing session I started a Christmas project , we decided that every month on the third Wed. we would work on a Christmas project of our choice , just so we have a little stockpile for gifts when next Christmas comes around, loved this idea so I went searching for what to make . I had made one of these before Christmas if you remember and it became a gift and I loved it so much I decided I would like to make a second one , that is rare for me I seldom repeat things . So here it is , I have all but three berries now appliqued on , I'm really pleased about that as that is the major work in this table topper .
Do you see that icon on my sidebar in Dutch , well it says basically that I will shop from my stash for this year and I am proud to say that I have almost made it through Jan and have not bought one single piece of fabric and when I decided last night to make this project I was really wondering if I had anything for the background  so checked in my sewing room first but nothing really spoke to me so off I went into my other storage space , yes I have fabric hoarded away in a few places :-) ,anyway I came across this plaid and I just love it , perfect for the look I wanted to achieve and I had just enough . So that was my week in a nutshell , to see what others have been doing be sure to check out the Needle and Thread Network where I am linking to today .
 Thanks for stopping by for a visit and enjoy the rest of your day .
 hugs Sheila

  15. Just a little busy, I see. I think you put all of us to shame. I too have some plaid in beige that I am going to use as a background. I hope you show us the end result.

  16. Your applique looks great! Last year (2011) I got through the whole year without buying a new piece of fabric -- that doesn't mean I didn't pick up a few peices at the 2nd hand store, tho! This year so far tho, I have bought at least 6 meters of new fabric...
