WIP Wednesday

It has been a few weeks since I have posted on my WIP's on Wednesday with the Needle and Thread Network but since I have a little  to report I thought I would share .As I mentioned yesterday I have been working away at the needlework for the Winter in Blogland project which was a free project which you can find at Ellie's Quilt Place ,it is a delightful blog and she has so many interesting projects and designs. Here is my progress so far ...
The four large blocks and you will see I have added wool in a few places to add dimension , a really fun project although a lot of work in some of these blocks but when you are having fun it really doesn't matter does it ;-) Then there are the three smaller blocks which are corners for the wall hanging .
Aren't they cute , these are just 4" , the larger blocks are 8" ,my dilemma now is whether to finish it as it is in the pattern with sashings then a row of flying geese blocks in various colors , hmmmmm what to do . Maybe for now I will just admire them on my little design wall while I try to make some headway with my UFO'S
Oh I have also been working on my project for the "It's All About Me"blog hop coming up soon , wish I could share my project I am sure it will make you smile but alas I must wait until my day to share . I signed up for the new blog hop also " Stitch me up " blog hop which is not until March so plenty of time to stitch up these adorable little designs .Can you tell I enjoy taking part in blog hops , it keeps those creative juices flowing ;-)
I have also been stitching up some postcards as our guild is exchanging cards with a few gals in Saskatchewan thanks to my friend Annette of In Stitches and Seams who has coordinated things on her end . Hope all of the guild members have now sent off their cards , if not please do so asap as we want them there before Valentine's Day.
 It is a wild and windy day here , raining , yes it has warmed up enough to rain and we are expecting winds of 90 km. this evening , yikes ,I guess it is a good thing this is rain and not snow or nothing would be moving .That is winter in the Maritimes , you just never know what Mother Nature will throw at you next. Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy your day and if you are looking for some inspiration be sure to hop on over to visit the Needle and ThreadNetwork
