WiP Wednesday #49

First, I owe you guys a drumroll please...the winner of a $25 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop is...lucky #9!!

Congratulations, Cara of Me a Mom?  Yay, Cara!!  I'll shoot you an email with your winning details.

Now let's get to our regular Wednesday business, shall we?  So, Lee's not counting anymore...but I totally am - at least until we get to WiP Wednesday #52, the anniversary of the first WiP Wednesday, which is quickly creeping up!!  It's been a crazy week at my house, but I managed to find a new level of focus these last few days thanks to some good news and a visit from my mother.  I've been checking a lot of stuff of my mental to sew list, so here's the run-down...

October bee blocks

String Me Along October blocks 
do.Good Stitches October blocks for the Bliss circle

My first pattern!!!  To be on sale and revealed on Friday, but here's a sneak peek...

Sneak peek

Still going:
X and O baby boy quilt - All 8 of my O's done, need to tackle the X's next...

X and O quilt - need some X's!

The Little Apples baby boy quilt - I still haven't decided what kind of blocks I'm going to make for this quilt, but I really like looking at the fabrics when I work in my sewing room.  You just can't help but smile at Aneela's darling fabrics.

Still on hold:
Farmer's Wife QAL - Yep, still busy enough for this wip to keep collecting dust.

Red and white zig-zag quilt - I got a new custom quilt order, for a classic red and white zig-zag quilt last week.  My UPS man lugged a lovely bolt of Kona Snow up to my door yesterday, along with some Kona Crimson, so I'm going to hopefully get rolling on this one real soon.
