WIP Wednesday 7.20.11

What Wednesday again. . this comes around a lot faster than I expect.


Ice Cream Dress BackOh this week has been productive.  I would have loved to finish more but I'm super proud of myself.
First I made up an Oliver & S dress right before the recipient arrived.  Here's the post I made up this past Monday.

I've been procrastinating on this .. and tada.  Something off my list.

I was almost tempted to make those PJ pants for my fella but I didn't.

I did finish up some bee blocks and also put a huge dent in a few others.

July - Aqua & OrangeJuly - Aqua & OrangeHere's the two blocks for the Queen Bee in Aqua & Orange

That's right. . another set of garden fences.  These are lovely and I love how quick they come together.

What are the chances that in two bee's the ladies choose the same block.  Oh how fun!
July - Orange you Glad Bee
And I also finished a block for the Orange you Glad Bee.

This block with some awesome helpful hints went together much better than I previous attempt at this block.  Starch is your friend!

None.  I did clean my sewing space.  My fella wasn't able to see the difference.  Sigh!  But I swear it's better than it was!

Works in Progress:
- Mug Rug for Swap
- Bee Blocks. . this one is so in the bag!

  6. Love those fence blocks. And the dress is so cute!

  7. i love the contrast in the fabrics for the dress. adorable.

  8. The dress is super cute! Heh. I hear you on the space cleaning. I organized the "mess" so I knew which bits I was working on. The response The Pirate gave when he saw what I had done to the guest room was "wow...that's a mess."
