Finally Friday

Wow.  This week has been crazy!  I usually do a Wednesday post but didn't realize til late Wednesday afternoon that I didn't do it.  Wednesdays are supposed to be about WIPs.  I had already talked about my Jamestown Landing Monday.  I did add about 200 HST's to my count though and pieced some into the bigger blocks.

And then I worked on this project.  It's a paper pieced squirrel by Cynthia England.  It's a commission piece I am doing for a friend who wanted a Squirrel wall hanging to give as a gift.  It took two nights to get that one section done.  Its a good thing there is no deadline on this one.  Its been super fun to make so far though.

This is my little kitty Arya keeping me company while I was cutting some more fabric for Jamestown Landing.  That is the end of my cutting table.  :)  Creative and neat just don't seem to coincide, do they?  I have about 4 projects there that I am currently working on and a stack of fabric that I just bought that needs a home.  The problem is finding it a home.  I am running out of storage space.  I think I am going to order this, Whitmor 6754-491-5 Plastic Document Boxes Set of 5 Assorted Colors,  today and see how they work out for scraps.  They also have similar ones that look like they would work out for fat quarters.  I might get those too.  Here are those, Whitmor 6754-373-5 Plastic CD Boxes Set of 5 Assorted Colors.  Not bad for 25 dollars, huh?

If you haven't read it yet, I am doing a giveaway on my blog.  The deadline is tonight so head over to that post and enter if you haven't already.  You can find the post, here.  I loved doing a giveaway so look forward to some more.  It was a lot of fun hearing about what everyone was up to.  I got a lot of new followers which is super.  Welcome to everyone who is new!

Today I am linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts so be sure to head over there to see what everyone is up to this wonderful Friday!  


  1. Meh, neat is over-rated! I little bit of a mess is good for the soul. :)

  2. That is a lot of paper piecing, can't wait to see your progress.
    I have a tuxedo, they have such wonderful personalities.


  3. That squirrel looks very complicated. I don't know that I'd have the guts to try something like that. I'm sure the quilt will be absolutely stunning though.
