WIP Wednesday

I barely stitched at all this week because I was busy resting on my laurels for finishing the Rainbow I Spy. That seems to happen to me a lot - taking time off after a big finish.

Made Progress

I was also procrastinating on sewing together the 81 squares (but who's counting?) of my final Habitat pillow cover. But tackle it I did, and it came together quite quickly and easily (the common hallmark of jobs one is avoiding for fear of their being too hard). So easily, in fact, that I didn't have to use a single pin for the entire thing! Only a couple of corners are slightly mismatched and not so much so that I wanted to unsew. (Say that 3 times fast!).

All 4 pillow covers are pieced, and since those photos were taken, they've been fused onto squares of Pellon Fusible Fleece, all ready for quilting inspiration to hit. Any ideas? I'm thinking the shattered glass/random diagonals that I did here, but using dark brown thread:

No Progress

Meantime, the rest of my projects sit, alone and lonely. Yearning for my love and attention. Soon, my dears. Soon.

I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
