Sorry I missed WIP Wednesday! I have a 5yo MacBook Pro that needed to be updated to OS X Yosemite Tuesday night. I uploaded it, went to bed and in the morning discovered that Satan had taken over my computer. The lag time was horrible and most of the sites I frequent (my shop and blog) would not load properly. After reading a million comments on Apple support I finally ended up uninstalling Safari and cleaning a few other parts of the computer and switched over to Google Chrome. Not fun, my my heart now belongs to Google.
So here is my late WIP Wednesday and a few other fun things I’ve been up to this week.
Have you looked under this hashtag lately? After seeing a TON of the most colorful log cabin blocks surface on Instragram over the past few week all labeled with this hashtag I got out my huge bag of scraps and decided to join in!
If you read this post by Fishcreek Studio, you’ll see how this #scrappylogcabinQAL is being run. And while I am following along, my log cabin blogs are being quilted-as-you-go. I cut 10″ batting pieces and sew my log cabins as I go. (See above)
What I love about these blocks are that they make the most random scrap strips look pretty! My blocks are 8 1/2″ finished and so far I have these 6 done. I have been using my Featherweight, Gracie to work on 1 each day while my kids do their homework. I wonder how many I can finish before my scraps run out?!
So in addition to my everyday antics, I have added this to my afternoon sewing. I will call it my “homework”.
My two big projects this week involve finishing up my first e-pattern and the pretty you see above. This is the only clue I can give you right now, but it’s an exciting “first” for me and I cannot wait to share it with you.
