WIP Wednesday

Just north of Santa Cruz

I really enjoyed the three-day weekend, and spent quite a bit of it sewing! We did take a break and drive out to Pescadero to visit the goat dairy farm there. They have the best cheese, and the goats are adorable! The drive back was gorgeous, and a nice reminder of what I love about Santa Cruz. The fog was rolling in, but there were areas that were completely clear, like this stretch of coastline below. However, most of the weekend was for sewing! Sadly, I don’t have a lot to show for it. One of the things I worked on was a pillow for our quilt guild secret pillow swap. I can’t show that until next month when I give it to my swap mate. The other thing that took up the majority of my weekend was working on the granny square blocks for the Not Your Granny’s Bee block swap. I made 24 of these blocks, 8 with white, 8 with snow, and 8 with charcoal. I’m kinda done with granny’s blocks for a while!

Those took a lot longer than I was expecting, so I didn’t have a lot of time to work on the 3×6 bee paper-pieced blocks. I’ve begun working on the block for my swapmate who requested grey, aquas and blues with white. I’m really enjoying seeing how this block looks in other color ways. I’m using the Shape Moth “Snow Cristal” patternfor this, and I really love how versatile it is.

I have the fabric pulled for the other half of it – I ran out of unique scraps.

And that’s all I have to show for the week! 🙂 I’ve told myself that I am not going to enter any more block swaps after this set so that I can work on finishing quilts instead of just making blocks. We shall see how that particular resolution goes!
