WIP Wednesday

Another week of not much happening. I can't say that Bitchypoo my teenage daughter is not generous, she kindly shared her cold with me, which laid me low for most of the week.

However binding is still continuing on the Plume quilt, 3/4 of the way there. I was hoping to finish it yesterday, but it didn't happen. Next week it WILL happen and I'll finally have something to show!

I've joined in my first ever swap, a nice gentle one. The Scrappy Swap organised by Kat over at Diary of a Flutter Kat. I've been sorting through my stash, which has been lots of fun, messy but fun.

A photo in the spirit of keeping it real. Underneath all that (s)crap is my dining table. Lucky we have a kitchen bench we can sit at, to eat meals.

Working on something to send with the scraps.

Sorry, I can only show you this much so far.  I made a prototype and a second one. The prototype went really well, the second one not so well and I spent a lot of quality time with my seam ripper. It's looking great now.

I'm trying to go back to my original plan of aiming for small goals as the number of WIP's is overwhelming.

Hopefully this is the start of a productive week.
