WIP Wednesday

Here we are another week into fall weather and getting closer to winter!
I want to share a really cool photo that has nothing to do with quilting...
A little touch of what Saskatchewan is all about...
Here are 249 combines, harvesting in a field on Saturday, just outside of Saskatoon.
They set a new Guinness world record, and was organized by Harvest for Kids.
Okay, back to the quilting!
I have almost all the blocks from Star of Africa bee.
Here is a mosaic from the incredibly talented and imaginative minds of my bee mates!
I plan to make a wall hanging with these beauties, to hang in my sewing room!
*****
Mouthy Stitches2 is getting closer to our mailing date, so I got busy and made the tote for my secret partner.
We all used this tutorial for the tote.
The second part of the swap is a key fob.
I have some polymer clay that I am playing around with!
This was the first piece I tried...
 It's fun to do!
 I'm going to try a few more, and then work on the design I had in mind for the swap.
Sew we quiltwe'll see how it goes!
*****
I've been making a couple of framed coin purses for a blog hop
UR Priceless which will run November 5-13th.

So, I can't show them until my posting date which is November 7th.
*****
I haven't done any work this week on my two WIP quilts, which is NOT good!
Especially A Groovy Kind Of Love
It's just hanging out in my sewing room draped over my fabric cupboard. 
For sure, I'm going to work on more FMQ this week!
Starry, Starry Night is folded up and hanging in the closet...out of sight, out of mind!
Maybe before Christmas???
I also have that pile of Chicopee equilateral triangles cut and put aside until I can agree with myself on a layout! ;-)

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.

Have a great sewing week!

Ahhh Saskatchewan. It's been too long! And I can't remember even how long since we've been there during harvest. A lovely time for your province.

Your swap tote is great. I love that log cabin hexie.

I so love the Groovy quilt! There is so much movement in it and the color choices are right up my alley :)

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

I love your Groovey quilt!! I want to do one....one day. I hope you get more FMQ practice than I am...it is silly; always put off to the last minute.

Linda said...

I like the colors you choose for the Groovy quilt! They match the design perfectly.

That harvest event is amazing! They were talking about it on CBC radio while I was in the car yesterday and how you could hear it for miles. Gotta love it. That's SK at its best.

That groovy quilt is pretty awesome. Can't wait to see the finished product!

Great projects, and those combines must have been awesome! Thanks for the picture.

Your Bee blocks look great all together. They have turned out well.
