WIP Wednesday 03/16/2011

I have worked on something almost every night, but I don't really have a lot of finished projects to show for it lately! I did finish the March block for Birdie Stitches.

I really like this little bird.

I am only using the colors in the fabric so my rainbow has brown instead of purple and I left out that top line. I obviously haven't washed it yet, so you can still see the blue lines. I am really happy that I decided to participate in this. It's is easy to make the blocks. the embroidery designs are cute and I can finish them quickly. I'm excited to keep working on it. I haven't given up the idea of making another one for a Christmas gift, but still haven't started it.

I have learned a new skill: knitting. I'll share about that in the next few days, but it's probably the reason I don't have much finished!

I also started a project using Cuckoo! from Wild Olive. Mollie is starting a great series on embroidery basics if you want to check it out and learn something new!

I'm still working on the zigzag quilt (or it's still on the design wall anyway!). My local quilt shop is having a party for HST projects, so I'm going to try to finish it up and take it to that next Friday. No progress on the fairy quilt. It seems to be stalled!

Another thing I'm working on is a monthly sewing "group" with my friends from college. We are all going to try to get together once a month to sew/craft for a few hours. I'm very excited about it coming together. I think there are going to be about 8 of us. We are going to start with a baby quilt. Not sure if we are going to continue making the same thing every month or if we are all just going to bring something we are working on. We have several different talents in the group, so I think we are going to teach each other some different things. Do you have any group that you create with? Do you have any idea or suggestions that would be fun? Is this something you would like to hear about? Wanna start your own group? I'll be sharing ideas and suggestions based on how things go with us!

Your Birdie Stitches block is really cute. I'm a little behind on my embroidery, but my blocks are all sewn for the entire year.
