What a great week! I started on my Around The Block quilt (pattern by Sweet Jane) in yummy Tea Garden fabrics by Dena Designs. I cut all of my fabric and cleverly placed them on a very pink blanket so you can’t actually see the pinks since they are camouflaged in the photo, but they are beautiful! This will eventually be a quilt for (can you guess!?) my craft/guest/office room.

Since my machine was in the shop, and I am incredibly excitable/impatient, I started the first two blocks by hand.

As already posted, I started and completed a mug rug and my ironing board cover. I also have a few fun fabric tins now in my craft room. I am addicted to Illy coffee which comes in great little tins. So I now know what I’ll be doing with all of my tins!

Now, here is a lucky sneak peak at my secret project. More on this later… it should be finished next week and received the week after, so I will share more then!

Best news of all is that my machine is back from its holiday at the repair shop and is ready for a productive week ahead (and my fingers will get a break from hand-stitching needle punctures).

New projects: 1 (Around The Block quilt)

Current projects: 2 (farmyard bunting, secret gift, Scuffily Quilt)

Completed: 1 (mug rug, ironing board, fabric tins)

Thanks to Freshly Pieced for organizing this weekly WIP.
