WIP Wednesday #39

This past week has been very full and active. I did manage to get a teeny, tiny bit of stitching done. A couple of nights in the hotel. Since it was so hot, I felt it was only fair that I finally completed the January Birdie Stitches block.

Please excuse the bad photo and cropping.

My girls and I went up to Washington D.C. and toured around a bit. We spent last Saturday with Rosemary and David. And we shopped. Rosemary is an enabler. I felt the need to warn you. She took us to 2 money sucking shops. Right next to each other too. I plopped down a few pennies at the Seminole Sampler on some fabric for me and a bunch for my girls. I am loving that they want to buy fabric and make things. :-D Then we went next door to the stitching store, whose name escapes me at the moment, and plopped down the rest of my pennies.



I found drawers FULL of these little beauties. 24 of them are now MINE, MINE, ALL MINE. Plus the girls got little kits to make different projects. Again, I am lovin' that they are getting into this obsession of mine.

Anyway, back to the progress, or lack thereof from this past week. The Birdie block was IT. Nothing else got worked on. (Unless you count adding to my stash as progress.)

I am linking up to Lee's weekly accountablity report:


I am really enjoying linking up here each week. I love seeing what everyone else is working on AND seeing what I am working on.

So, what are you working on this week???

#1 Enabler here - Glad I could be of service parting you from your hard earned cash. Love the January block, now I want more. Show us more. Also, great idea to stitch it in the stinking heat we've been having. We LOVED having you up here. The stitching place was the Stitching Post, located in Catonsville, MD, very accessible from points north and south. :-D

They also have online service as well. BTW, your photography is fine, I love the photo of the threads.

I plan on getting my sewing machine out after supper, in hopes of finishing sewing the blocks for the quilt at church at least!
