WIP Wednesday

        Linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.. Here is my progress on my scrappy hexie's.....a bit slow this week due to Inventory at work.   Prepping the stores to get ready for 3 overnighters.  Then a day of sleep followed by a 4 day weekend and some sewing time.

Free Motion Friday

 Update, FMQ pictures of my mini 1x1 scrappy trip along.  I used my Joel Dewberry scraps for this project.  It came out about 12 inches square with the 4 blocks.  It is FMQ'd in pipe maze by Leah Day.   Fun pattern, easy to do and you never need to break thread, which I can appreciate because I often do applique and like to change colors all over the place= lots of thread tails to hide.

    It's Sunday and I have spent the last 90 minutes browsing all my favorite blogs and discovering a few new ones to add to my weekly reading.

       I am a bit off this week......I got my post all ready to link up on Wednesday with WIP @
Freshly Pieced  and it was Thursday....so I missed the link up.

     Then Friday rolls around and oh my its Free Motion Friday and I was not ready for that one either......

       So now it's Sunday and I'm sure I have a UFO to drag out and work on this week.   So I am off to go find it......Well I did see Pat's post about a USO  ( Unstarted Object)  and that is an intriguing possibility also..   I got a new work laptop and want to make a sleeve for it and I might be coming down with the new sickness of scrappy trip along.....   Oh no what's a girl to do?  Get off the computer and make something!!   I will post my pictures later today.....

Happy Sewing, K

       So here is my scrappy trip, the strips were 1 1/2 inch wide and the 4 blocks I made came out to 5 1/4" by 5 3/4".  Not sure why they were not square??   I like they way it came out.  I am going to quilt it with pipe maze by Leah Day.   This isn't going to work for my laptop bag but I still have more fabric!!!!
