Lee at Freshly Pieced has started this thing called "WIP Wednesdays". WIP stands for work-in-progress. So we all post our blog at hers, and we can look around and see what each person is doing these days. Great idea!!! So here's one project I'm doing. It's a fibre art commission of "Grandma's Cabin" that a family is having me do for a gift. I'm about half way done. It will be in an 8x10 black shadow box under glass.
I'm also making a quilt for the St. Nikolas day fundraiser at a German Preschool. I went into the classroom and had all the children make a block with tree parts and house parts and a glue stick. I'm appliqueing it all and then turning in into a quilt. I have 2 weeks and still have a couple blocks to get back from 2 sick little girls! (They are better now).
And a new commission came in that I'm so excited about!! I mother gave me a bag of her baby slings and carriers that she carried her boys in. She supplied me with a sketch of how she'd like things assembled. I'll have to take her to the fabric store for a few more selections and then I'll get going on this one. It is going to be FUN!!!! It's very very pretty and creative and magical. Just wait and see!
Then there is next summer's picnic blanket. It's for ME. And of course, it's last on the list. But here's the fabrics. It will be big-block modern. I cannot wait!!
There's more - there are postcards to make for a swap.... and there is a Quilting Arts entry I want to get in that's due next month. "Quilt Your Pet" for their 2012 calendar. Here's my to-do pile. (That counts right Lee?). It's my singing canary who loves the hum of my sewing machine. And I love him too. I printed the photo of him onto fabric. PRETTY BIRD!! His name is Pippin.
