Wednesday WIP - new projects

A really quick WIP this week - as usual I'm running around like a mad woman and trying to meet some pretty hefty deadlines, parent meetings and a lot more. Busy days at my casa! Despite of that I have managed to start a few projects - or maybe - because of that. Sewing is just great for de-stressing and I actually get a lot of thinking done while sewing.

Anyways, on the the WIP's. This weekend I finally got started on a new quilt. It's made all from scraps (and some pretty odd ones too) but so far so good. I have pieced a few of the rows but I still need a couple of hours of uninterrupted sewing to really feel I'm getting somewhere. Below the layout. Hope to have more to show you next week  :)

Scraps hst quilt

Yesterday evening I made this months block for Bee Europa 2012. It's the Converging Corners block:

 

As usual I like to make something inspired from the bee block as a little extra thing to send with as a little fun gift. This month I decided to make a small bag from linnen and various scraps in the same colors as the block. It ended up a tad bigger than I planned (10"x12" unfolded) but it's actually a great sie e.g. for taking an EPP project on the road. Geez, almost want to keep it myself!
