Wednesday WIP

This week has been all about english paper piecing - Spring Carnival from I'm a Ginger Monkey.  I'm sorry for dragging you though another week of EPP but... I’m hooked  :) I’ve been EPP’ing everywhere thinkable this week:

Click to enlarge the picture to see the 'real' colors' - here they look a bit flashy.

I EPP’ed in front of the TV:

On the floor

At the hospital …. We had a major scare this week as my Nephew was hospitalized in the emergency intensive care unit. My sister is a single Mom so of course I went down there right away to support her and stay with them. Thank godness he’s ok again. But it was a rough week… Luckily I had my quilt to keep me sane with the uncertainty and endless hours of waiting.

I even EPP'ed at the public indoor swimming pool where I took the kids twice last week in lack of a proper summer here in Denmark(no pictures though as I don’t want to take pictures with so many people potentially feeling uncomfortable)

I also worked on a little surprise this week for the Bee Europa. It's en route to the UK but I think it’s save to show the picture here as I’m pretty sure Amy does not read my blog. In Bee Europa the Bee of the month sends out instructons for  for a specific block and the fabric to make it from. This month Amy requested Wonky Log Cabin blocks. I always try to make a surprise from the cut off’s. While I finished Amy’s blocks last week I was a bit stumped about what to make as her surprise.

Well here it is: A wonky log cabin needlebook. I think I spent more time on the needle book than the actual blocks, which really came together in no time. But it was fun to do and thinking that maybe I need to make one for myself too.

 So that's it from me. But be sure to head over to Lee's blog and see lots more WIP's
