WiP it good

Wednesdays sure come 'round quickly - means we are that much closer to the weekend - yay!

This week I accomplished several little things with no real tangible results, if you know what I mean!  I got fabric cut and posted for not one but TWO bees that I am in [I'm Ms July in Bee Europa and Ms July in Running with Scissors].  Spent LOADS of time tending the garden so fingers crossed the fruits of all that labour will produce soon!! 

The best bit of the week was that I basted a quilt and am just about to start the quiltng...

I did finish another pot holder this week using some scraps I had on hand.  I love the Sherbert Pip dogs!  Confession time - I put the hanging thingy on the wrong corner so when it hangs, the dogs are sideways practically upside down!!  Doh.  Nevermind.  It proves I'm not a robot and improv sewing needs thinking through!

Not sure where that odd colour combo came from either!!  Ok, I love red and I love green but these two shades of red and green together is kind of wonky/wrong but I kinda-sorta like it anyways!! Reminds me of the colours I picked for my craft apron a week or so ago!! 

Anyways, on to THE LIST!

Green-grey-teal-turquoise quilt - currently quilting it!

Very cute potholder, even if the dogs HAVE gone loose! Thanks for linking up to the {summer} table!

Charlotte said...

you crack me up! I think the potholder looks fab :-)

Amy the pot holder is fun and I like to think that the dogs are going side wards when it is hung up. Di x

I like your potholder, vertical dogs and all:-) The colours are great.

I have just bought the pretty pleats tote pattern - saw it on another LMQG's blog along with the Nikki tote and loved them both.

I have just found your blog and love it!
I may also steal your idea of having a to do list for July and see if I have any success in sticking to it!
Thanks :0)
