WiP Wednesday

27 Jun

Not much to show this Wednesday. It’s been nasty hot in our house and I’ve just been trying to stay cool which means I try to stay away from the iron and draping my granny square quilt over my legs to hand quilt is a no go. Before it got miserable in our house I did manage to make some more plus (or cross if you want) blocks.

There are 2 more to complete the set but I got halfway with one before going to bed the other night. I told my hubby I think I want to make this a king size for our bed and at first he was a little hesitant but then realized it will look a lot better than the blanket we currently use when it’s cold. Not much has been going on here in the way of sewing other than this. I’ve been busy pinning away future projects on Pinterest though and found one in particular that would be awesome to do with the boys. It involves finding fallen leaves still attached to their branches and using them as a template to spray paint onto a canvas. Yeah, that description is kinda vague, sorry it’s late and i’m exhausted. Today we went for a little adventure and walked around this park near our house since they are currently redoing the playground and found some awesome leaves to use and quite a few perfect, yes perfect, pine cones to use for holiday decorations this year. There were a lot of small ones too that would make awesome ornaments. I will definitely write about how we do that along with a tutorial if I find it’s worthy of one. That’s all for now, I have a looooooong day ahead of me tomorrow so I better head off to bed and try to get as much sleep as possible. Happy hump day!

    Love your blog. I am new to blogging, but my favorite things are quilts, photography and family—with some flowers thrown in whenever I can. What’s does Wip stand for?

      Thank you! I still consider myself pretty new to all this too. Wip stands for Work in Progress. I see it on a lot of blogs and there is a link up for it too but I haven’t done that.
