WIP Wednesday

I have been making some headway on finishing a couple of the many projects that I have in the works and waiting to be started.  Hubs finally put the bracket on the back of the frame for the BOM I am participating in this year with a two of  my friends.  Wonder why these frames do not come with the hangers on the back anymore?  I am not always such a patient person when it comes to waiting  for the end result.

Joined in with the Triple-Zip along and here are my results.   I think I took too large of seams when I put the zippers in.  I had it cut out last Friday and sewed it up yesterday evening within a couple of hours.  I would have done it a little differently if I was to do it again.  I would have changed the zippers around so the colors would have shown up better.  I laid it out and thought it was going to work but things sure change once they are put together.

There is still time to join in if you are interested. The tutorial is at A Quilter's Table and there is a Flicker group to join!                                

I also picked the Penny Rug back up that I had started last year with Melody over at The House on the Side of the Hill.
A Free 10 month BOM
Melody's Rug!

I just finished the third part of the SAL.

Love the sheep!

I have the next section ready for the stitching.  Cute school house!

I hope you are all having a wonderful week!  Blessings from our home in the woods.

Well look at all of the crafty stuff you've been doing! I'm seeing a lot of little zipper bags in blog land lately and I'm a little intimidated to try it but I do like them. That Penny rug is gorgeous.

I think your zipper placement looks fine in your pouches. I love the fabric you chose! And the Penny Rug is SO cute, particularly those sheep, but the tree looks really cool too. What a fun project that must be!

I love the school house!!!! So adorable!
I've been working on some projects too...a Valentine quilt that I've been wanting to make for years. Now that I've got some blocks done, I don't like it as well...and I don't have enough of the background fabric to make it the size I wanted to. Another reminder that I should work in the moment instead of years later!!!
