WIP Wednesday #8

Today’s work in progress will chiefly consist of the never-ending battle to keep my family fed.  In other words — time for another trip to the grocery store…I guess I need to start buying more of the things we go through on a regular basis, as we seem to be running out of them sooner. 

I’ve had trouble getting my engine going this week, creatively speaking.  It occurred to me last night that part of the problem is the feeling of let down after having worked so hard and intensely on Peppermint Ice Cream.

Speaking of which:  the binding is attached to the front but still needs to be hand-stitched. 


I pulled out a WIP this week and started contemplating it. 

Oddly enough, it’s a very similar color scheme. 

I pieced the black and white pinwheels with the intention of using this as the background for a large-scale appliqué design.  I’m still struggling with what that appliqué design is going to look like.   The original plan was to use the fabrics you see in the picture to create a large-scale flowery wreath.  I’ve got some pieces cut out and have been putting them up and taking them down and rearranging.   I guess it still needs to percolate.

(Watch your eyes, it’s black and white polka dot fabric, and it may make your eyes hurt.  LOL)


I think that’s all for today’s report.

My in-laws will be here shortly, my MIL is raiding my stash for some yellow scraps.  After that – off to the big city. I’m taking my DH out for lunch, a rare treat for both of us!
