WIP Wednesday

Happy Hump Day everyone!  It was back at work for me on Monday and after 1 1/2 day, my stress level was back up to where it was before I left for my 2-week vacation... not good.  Thank goodness for my little sewing room!  Spending time in there in the evening has kept me sane.

So what have I been up to since last Wednesday?  Well, I made some progress on a really old UFO, I finished a couple of things and I got started on a new project.

First, I finished putting together the top of the 2010 FQS Designer Mystery BOM and got caught up with the 2012 blocks.  You can see pictures of those here.

Then I made a couple of the Wide Open Zipper Pouches for my girls.  I blogged about those here.

I also worked on my goals for the 1st quarter of 2013 and quilted Leap Year.  I will post pictures of this finish later this week.

And finally, I got sucked into the Scrappy Trip-Along craze!  So far, I've got 4 blocks made.

Scrappy Trip-Along Blocks

Not a great picture... I apologize.  As I said when I blogged about this Scrappy Trippy thing, I decided to use fabric I wasn't crazy about just to see what the results would look like.  I have to say that I'm really enjoying making these blocks.  Notice how I put a white strip in the same place for each block?  I'm hoping some kind of secondary design is going to appear with these white squares once I've got more blocks done.  I'm thinking I might be able to achieve one of my goals with this quilt which is to give at least one quilt to charity this year.

And what have you been up to?  Are you working on those WIPs?  Are you working on your most important goals for this quarter?

Linking up at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.

Thank you for visiting!
