WIP Wednesday: Hmmm..

If you are looking for the recent podcast shownotes to enter the giveaway, click HERE.

Now that I finished the Easy Street blocks, and subsequently decided to put that project on hold, I am back to working on my King Spiderweb quilt.


It's slow-going, but I am trying to finish 1-2 blocks a day this month.


I also decided to join in on the Spring Top Sewalong over at the Made by Rae blog. I've had several sewing projects in my queue for awhile now, and had already bought the fabric for a Shana Tunic when I made my Devon Peasant top last summer.

The color and print of the fabric (Crazy Love by J. Paganelli) is a bit out of my comfort zone, although I don't mind wearing "color" in general, and have a lot of it in my everyday wardrobe. 



I finished the collar and am about to move on to the sleeves, which are 3/4 length.

Right now I am at the "hmmmmm" stage with this sewing project. Hmmm, is it going to fit right? Hmmm, will this look handmade or homemade (yes, there is a difference when it comes to clothes sewing IMO!) Hmmm, what shoes will I wear with this? Hmmm, does this mean I get to go shoe shopping?!?! See, all very important decisions to hmmm over.

So what are you "hmmming" about this week?

  2. Doing the spider web is on my to-do list.
    One of our speakers at quilt guild gave us a quick tutorial and hand out sheet. I also took photos so I could remember.
    It's just a matter of actually getting started on it! I have my bag of strips and my backing fabric ready though.

  3. Your spiderweb is beautiful. I love your choice of background colour - it makes the prints really pop.

  5. Love your spider web! One day I'll tackle one too! Good luck with your new spring top. The fabric is beautiful! I've never sewn for myself before, but I recently bought Made by Rae's Washi Dress. We will see how I do.

  7. Love the top! Great colors--I'm sure it will look completely handmade, not homemade! (Love the distinction, by the way.) And the spider web is coming along great--I'm enjoying seeing it in progress!

  9. Live the top colors! Funny how that pattern type I used to wear in the late 60's as a kid, now back in fashion. Back then I'd be wearing go go boots with it though. Lol!
