I learned something new!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Sew Fresh Quilts
Hello! I have not gotten much done yet this week. My son's birthday was Monday - he's the big 5 now! :) So I spent the whole day doing what he wanted to do. He ate mac and cheese for breakfast and we took him to IHOP so he could have pancakes for dinner! It was a fun day. :)

I did get to take a machine applique class this weekend at my LQS and it was so much fun! I had time to make 2 tea towels and I see many more applique projects in my future. :)

I also made progress on my rainbow cross stitch and my Little Miss Shabby Quilty Stitches cross stitch. They are both turning out so cute!
And my Nested Churn Dash is coming along slowly, but surely. I have started the 3rd layer.

I have received a couple more of my Christmas bee blocks in the mail. I should have 5 more on the way. I'm really excited about how they are all looking!

I'm also excited to report that my long-armer, Anne, has finished Breakfast at Tiffany's! I will be picking it up on Monday and hope to have it finished by next weekend. Woo hoo!

Have a sew crafty day!



  1. Your colors for the Quilty Stitches cross stitch are fantastic! Pretty much the only appliqué I do is by machine, your tea towels are adorable. Visiting from Let's Bee Social!

  2. The applique looks great, and I love the colors and name "Breakfast at Tiffany's"! Happy belated birthday to your son; it sounds like he had a wonderful day. :)

  3. Wow! You have made all kinds of progress! Love your Christmas bee blocks. And your cross stitching looks fabulous!

  4. Christmas Bee blocks look great!

  5. OMG your cross stitched projects are awesome! Love it!

  6. That rainbow cross-stitch is amazing!!! I think I need a pillow just like that. :) Excellent work!
