WIP Wednesday

Happy Wednesday to all you stitchers out there!
I was lucky enough to be accepted into  do.Good Stitches and our circle is called Happiness!
 Happiness...@
Marika asked us to do wonky Bento Box blocks with fushia, aqua, lime green and grey.
She is certainly getting wonky from me!
 I am also in an international block swap called Star of Africa.
Star of Africa
June was my month to be Queen and my blocks are all starting to arrive. I'll show them when they are all here.
July was May's month and she asked for a block using pink. Because we are doing blocks that represent our country in some way, I decided to show her what livestock looks like here on the Prairies!
Sorry, May! Miss Piggy is my first attempt at applique!

 I am getting closer to a finish on Who's Your Granny? which I am doing as part of the Great Granny Along.
I made a very large Granny block for the back and surrounded it it grey and another Flea Market Fancy fabric.
Sorry for the crap photos!
I did some FMQ loopy, swirly kinda thing in each block, and the stitched in the ditch around each block....
close-up...
Bound it using Lush running stitch...
I'm not done though!!
I am still going to do alot of hand stitching in the white sashing and border!
Good thing the Olympics are still on!
However, I have company that arrived last night, so I'll see how much I get done this week!
Linking up @ Freshly Pieced with guest host Bethany.

That's such a cute little pig. And the granny square is great. I've been seeing those everywhere these days and pretty soon I think I'm going to jump on that bandwagon.

Great pig. Lovely idea to put a granny square on the back. Look forward to seeing the Star of Africa blocks.

I love your wonky blocks and your cool pig block. I had no idea the pig was an icon prairies. Not only is the Star of Africa an adventure, it's an education!
