WIP Wednesday- the waiting game

Waiting......waiting
ho hum
When will the postman bring my fabric so I can get busy and complete my
WIP's??
A Groovy Kind of Love
 yup...waiting
Starry, starry night
also waiting.
In the meantime...
I made a cushion using Chicopee, Essex linen, and Basic Grey Grunge
called it Tickled 1.0
I love it, and plan to do another.
details on this one here
That's about it for this week.
I am almost finished my block for Jen for
 Star of Africa
Not a very productive week, but I did get caught up on the reading of my library books with only a 90 cent late fine! Woo hoo!

Your "groovy" quilt will be wonderful! The pic of the little guy holding the boxes is so cute.

I'm waiting on Mr. Mailman too. Your projects look great though, even though stalled a bit!

I personally LOVE those a.m.h. feathers SO much. We actually still use 'feather beds' like my parents did in 'the old country' and I want to made covers for them with the feathers. : )) Was it difficult? I checked out the pattern and I thought there would be a much different method of construction with all the geometry involved. ?
