I feel like my retreat report was quite the WIP roundup, but I do have a couple of more things to show you.
I felt very lucky today - I had the day off work, the sun was shining, the breeze was cool and I spent most of the day in a most delightful way: stitching with friends Krista and Berene.
In between coffee, goodies and lunch, I made some good progress on my Stash Trad Bee block for September. Corey Little Miss Shabby asked for a string-pieced star in aquas, corals, yellows, taupes and greys.
This palette challenged me - or rather my stash - but I think I did okay. Tutorial here if you're interested. It's a great way to use up small strings (they're mostly cut at 1").
I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I'm hosting the month of May in the Blogger's Block of the Month series over at Peach Patch Quilts (I almost typed Peach Pit - a 90210 freudian slip!), and so I've added that BOM to my projects and WIP list because I plan to sew along. Check out the first block called Fun in the Middle, posted by Carin of Margaret's Hope Chest here (scroll to Project Four).
Finished Projects - 1 (the tote, which never even made it to the project list!)
New Projects - 1 (Blogger BOM)
In Progress - 9
