WIP Wednesday

Welcome to WIP (work in progress) Wednesday, hosted by Every Day Crochet.

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; she leaves each WIP up until the following week.

Click the button at the end of my post to add your own, or just go see what others are up to.  It's a lot of fun!

Always a good distraction, this past week I had 2 orders to work on.  One, a lady at church wanted a small rug to use to put her dog's food dishes on.  The other was an online order for 4 dish scrubbies.

I didn't get anything done on the quilts past getting some of the materials into the living room to start pictured below.  Ignore the rugs next to it.  The one is what I am using for a chair cushion since it was my first attempt and a mess up.  The other is my first one out of t-shirts, which also bowed, but I starched it down and am now using it in front of the entertainment center.  Since taking the photo late last night, I did get the material cut to make a Scooby Doo bag, which is also an online order.

Below you will see a toothbrush rug that I completed...the first one that didn't bow.  Go me!!  I finally got it right!  I had thought it was big enough and ended it off.  I'm thinking now I should have kept going.  I am still going to put it up for sale.   I then started another one with material that was laying on my desk.  Past the material you see laying beside it, finishing it will have to wait until I get at least one quilt done to see if I have more sheets to work with.

And, I am still working on this prayer shawl....I'm guess it will be 2 more weeks before it's completed.  I only work on it just a bit each day.

I'm off now to check out the other WIPs...please click the button and join in on the fun.
