WIP Wednesday: Excuses. Excuses.

I have a million excuses as to why I have been so quiet over here.
Working full time and children make up most of my excuses.
I was able to sneak away on Saturday to join in on drop-in sewing at my favorite LQS.
I spent most of my time jibber-jabbering, but was able to finish paper piecing half of my star:
I found this free template at Six White Horses. She has some awesome paper piecing templates.
This template has been slightly tricky-
My biggest problem has been cutting the right size pieces of fabric for my template.
It should be easier on the second half.
I would love to sit down to my sewing machine sometime this week.
It might have to wait until Friday night.
I HAVE to get my squares cut for my Amy Butler Charm Swap.
I am the queen of meeting deadlines.
I hope to get them sent out to Rachel on Friday during my lunch hour. 
Another WIP continues to be my Lilly Pilly quilt.
She is waiting patiently to be sandwiched, basted, quilted, and bound.
We'll get there...
Have a wonderful evening, everyone.
I'll be linking up with Lee.
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Love the Amy Butler fabrics. Great colors. The paper-piecing is looking nice, too. I don't do it often but my recollection is that once you get a rhythm going it gets easier. Good luck!

  2. I love your foundation-pieced star. I'm going to have to try that pattern too.

  3. I have seen the star on Flickr, yours looks really lovely. Thank younsommuch for the linkmtomthempattern

  4. All those project are lovely. I especially like the star block--it reminds me of the scrappy lone star quilt I am working on now.

  5. That star is absolutely lovely. Great colours.
