WIP Wednesday

Some One good thing finished this week! I'm pretty happy that I finished Building Blocks for the Dead Simple QAL at Lily's Quilts.
I thought I would finish the Card Trick block for Test Your Skills Sampler..........what's that about measure twice and cut once!
BIG booboo and I cut them all! Okay, start over and lesson learned.
Sandi's instructions were perfectly clear! I just didn't pay enough attention! ;-|
Now, I plan to get back to finishing Come Fly With Me. I just have to add the backing, which is a plaid flannel(seems to be a favourite of mine this month!). Then quilt and bind it and then USE it.
Still in the works, I'm still in the process of unpicking a gazillion FMQ stitches from Picket Fences. And still languishing on a hanger is Ocean View.
On a surprise note, I found these fantastic buttons while sorting through my Mom's sewing notions. She was more of a mender than a sew-er, so I was surprised to see these cuties!
I know who most of them are, but the top left lady has me stumped...anyone know who she is? I have no idea what I'll do with them!
Time to link up to Lee at Freshly Pieced!

I think top left is Mae West. I also think the Card Trick block is jinxed, since I had to do some fiddling to fix my whoopses, too.

Definitely Mae West. And whoa wait a minute when in the H did you change your blog background. Am I crazy? I usually read in reader so maybe I didn't notice? It looks cool!!! [btw did you know I live in Lucille Ball's hometown? yup. I do]

I was thinking they were all in the same era - but maybe not. Here is a link to a picture of a young Mae West that is a similar pose to the button. http://lorien.me/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/mae-wests.jpg
