W.I.P.S

Works in progress.

Now that things have settled down, I thought I would share some of my works in progress. It’s been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to sit in front of my sewing machine or do much in the way of other creative projects, but I did manage to squeeze in a few over the past few months.

Mystery Quilt – this was a class I took more than a year ago. I had finished the top, but decided it needed something more. I added two borders and took it to be quilted in July. Thankfully I was able to pick it up before we moved and I am now getting around to finishing the binding.

Next is my newest hobby to discover – Encaustics. This is the first time I’ve ever tried it and it was so much fun. I can’t wait to do more.

And finally, just a quick little something. I still need to add the lights inside, but it’s a glass block, embellished with stickers and a vinyl transfer. I saw this idea a few years ago and it’s always stuck with me. It makes a great night light, shelf decoration, whatever. You can put a ribbon around it and make it look like a Christmas present under a tree or change out the lights and ribbon and use it for any other holiday too. The possibilities are endless.

I’ll add to this page as I make progress or create new projects. Look for the link to WIPS at the top of the site by the Home & About Me links.
