WIP Wednesday

I've been completely distracted this week with terrible back pain.....I think probably a pinched nerve!
So, not much sewing got done.
Thankfully, it's much better now!!
I'm taking a break from Path to Tallahassee as all that foundation piecing gets to me at times.
So, instead, I started a new quilt! This is a baby quilt for my cousins new son, Blake.

It's a quick block to make and alot of fun as well. I had the Pooches and Pickups fabric around for a while, and then added a few other fabrics from my stash.
The background fabric in Kona Ocean.
I still have more blocks to make, but it shouldn't take too long.
Still haven't decided on a layout either!

The only other thing I did this week was a new framed pouch. This one has the tabs to add a chain which I really like. Details here.

Still unfinished and lingering on a hanger or in a drawer is:
2- Can You See Me Now
I am so sad that Picnik is closing, as I use it all the time and I don't have Photoshop.
What do you use for photo editing?
As always, I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for...

Sorry to hear about your back, glad it is getting better. I just love that purse and the baby quilt is really cute too!

There's so many options for layouts for that quilt block! Here's another one I like: http://www.filminthefridge.com/2011/10/04/a-nautical-quilt/

I too am sad about picnick. :(

The pouch is so cute! I love the red against the black and white. The baby quilt is great too, I love the cheery colors. Unrelated to this post, but I am totally digging the panda in your header! So great!

Your triangles looks beautiful. I started one with some scraps but never finished it. Looking at your gorgeous quilt I realize I should dig it out again.

Sorry to hear about your back, that's no fun! But the triangle quilt is a lot of fun!! Looking great so far! I'm too lazy to do too much photo editing, but when I do I just use Picasa as I'm too cheap for Photoshop. Hope you are feeling better soon!

Glad you're feeling better! I do my photo editing with an ancient, no longer available Microsoft product called Picture It, but you should check out the Aviary suite of tools. I use the Swatch Editor to pick colors from photos. The Image Editor, based on the video, does amazing things, and they're free.
