WIP Wednesday - The next wave of projects is upon us

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I'll get to the sewing stuff in a mo' but first a story... I went to the zoo on Saturday with my hubs because that is what we do. Plus there were dinosaurs. Did you know Basilosaurus is the state fossil of Alabama? Well apparently Mississippi claims it too, losers. But I digress... I had my drivers licences in my pocket (you can see where this is going) and then I couldn't find it by the end of the day. I was 100% sure it was somewhere in the zoo. I called lost & found on Monday and Tuesday but they didn't have it so I braved the Alabama DMV. I sat for 4 hours at two different DMV locations (didn't have my social security card the first time around). Finally got it - VICTORY! I get home and the zoo called. Guess what they found... The End.

And now for the quilt-related business.  Last week I finished a slew (one slew = 2 quilts and 1 aeroplane bag) of projects. I'll get around to blogging about them soon. I promise. Or you can see them on instagram @sewhungry. 

Time for some fresh starts:

The Birmingham MQG got some leftover Madrona Road. Since we are late to the challenge game we decided to make a few blocks for a charity quilt. I'm going to play with rectangles and dig into my MR stash to fill in some gaps.

I've also been organizing my scraps and then cutting into them. I am working on a quick tutorial (aka tutoriolito) for the patchwork on the front of my Stash Bash pouch.

Link up with Lee to see what everyone else is working on at Freshly Pieced. Did you ever realize that buisness is a mash up of busy and ness. As in, I full of busy right now, seriously. Man, I am in a weird state this morning. I leave you with a cuppa HSTea.


  1. Tutoriolito. I love this word. I can't wait to see it.

  2. Mas tutoriolitos por favor!
    I can't believe that happened with your license. I would've cried.

  3. Is it wrong that I really want to make a quilt inspired by your coffee mug?

  4. Oh man, the DMV is bureaucratic torture. And the zoo calling at the end is just adding insult to injury!
    Can't wait for the tutoriolito! con salsa por favor!
