Linking up to Freshly Pieced for the mid week party that is:

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I'm excited to have become affiliated with Prints to Polka Dots. They are a fantastic UK online shop, with everything you need to quilt and more (check out the Slipper Gripper, I will so be making myself some slippers!!)

Prints to Polka Dots

I know I've already recommended them to a few of you before and I have bought some great fabric from them since I started quilting. They have a good choice, particularly for children's prints, and I love their sales. They currently have some lovely Amy Butler, Valori Wells and Annela Hoey's Sherbert Pips prints on sale, as well as great scrap bags (they have lots of options and choices of scraps if you need some stash builders!) and budget bargains :)


The Pezzy quilt top (still waiting for wadding!)

My first embroidery attempt (still waiting to be framed!)

A Bee Blessed block (I sent it off to Judith today!)

A drawstring bag using Jeni's fabulous tutorial for my threads since I'm now an embroidery addict too!!


Stained QAL (see the button on the sidebar) - I've finished my first block and I'm totally in love :)
This is SO fun, goes together super easily and although my sewing isn't perfect I'm really happy so far!
I realised I made a mistake, sewing a couple of the same fabrics in the wrong place, so they're too close together but I'm not unpicking since I still like it ;)

no progress:

- rose star blocks, I've basted some pieces for my next block but no actual sewing done yet

I've been perusing the internet looking at solids for the background for my Rose Star dilemma and I think I've fallen for the Kona Apple! I like the mint but am wondering about going brighter. The apple looks yummy to me. I'm still contemplating... I did try some darker colours but it doesn't look right. Huge thank you to you all for your input and ideas. I will do another mosaic if I can't make a decision soon!
