WIP Wednesday 2.18.15

Wow, it's been a hectic month.  Three different things happened to three family members on the same day.  My mother-in-law passed away on 1/31/15.  My sister-in-law moved back home from Virginia and will be living with us for an extended stay and she was hospitalized for six days this week.  Another family member is aware of a difficult situation that I better not discuss on the blog because I have " cray-cray stalkers".  We won't go in to any of that.

My sewing/quilting has really slowed down, but I did manage to get back in to some of it.  Here's what happened this week:

I finished block 4 in the Sew Sweet Simplicity Sew Along.  Here it is in shirtings:

I made progress on my Scrap Crystals quilt pattern is in More Adventures with Leaders & Enders by Bonnie Hunter.  Here are all the little units pressed and ready to be made into stars!  I'll happily put this box in my "to go" work box and take them with me to all of my son's appointments where I wait and wait and wait.

All of the Big O blocks that I won in the Block Lotto are home.  Here's what they look like together.  This is not how I plan to do the layout of the quilt.  I'll surprise you later with that.

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!  See what everybody is doing here.
