Mid-Week Progress

You know how we are always making lists of things to do to keep us focused? I was getting worried about my lack of progress this week on my to do list because of TV show distractions, songs and podcasts on iTunes to check out, and just general hanging out.

Then I remembered how quickly these wonky star blocks come together, so I managed to piece together a red version (which is technically more of a raspberry color) similar to my green star.

I do have the strips of fabric cut to make a table runner using Anina’s tutorial for Fall, but that’s as far as I’ve gotten.

Well, now I actually feel like I’ve made some progress this week. Hope you are making progress too!

  • Nice red star and it matches great especially with the fabric you used for the centers!
    The only thing on my list for today is mowing. It’s finally dry enough and the mower is fixed…all at the same time!
    Hope your day is wonderful (or should I say productive?) 🙂

  • I love those wonky stars! I need to get over and check out the striped table runner tutorial, I’ve been thinking about making one for the table in my foyer, for fall.
    I’m sure you did great darning those gloves! I saw the fingerless gloves that you made for Amy! I’ll have to remember that when we relocate back to the Northwest! I love them!

  • You did make some progress this week.
    I’m chugging along on a twin sized quilt. Big.

  • You made a lot of progress…I’m trying to just get a list made…but keep getting distracted with sewing projects that are much more fun than list making!

  • Okay, I love those Wonky Stars!! I’ve been meaning to make that table runner myself!

  • General hanging out sounds very good to me, especially if it could be done in the warm sunshine! P.S. I finished the coat I’ve been working on; good thing, since the weather now dictates that I need it!

  • You are making good progress! Lots have been done. 🙂 I adore your stars sooo much! And those strips of fabric have gorgeous colors! Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!

  • Great colors on your wonky stars. Looks like you’re making a little progress. It always feels so good to get those things off the list.

  • Ugh..I have a pair of gloves needing darning laying on my sewing table too. Not the most exciting work, is it?

    Love the wonky stars, you and I both love the Chocolate Lollipop!
