Work in Progress Wednesday...

Well, it is Wednesday.  I have made more cross string blocks and they no longer fit on the design wall so I am storing the extra blocks in a basket.  I think I have about 40 or so blocks and I need a lot more.  Super scrappy and wonderful!

I have been been sorting and folding all my vintage sheets too.  I needed to really have a look at all of them in preparation for my awesome new shelves.  I am hoping to have all this stuff living in one happy place.

And I finally made a name tag so that I am no longer nameless at the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild meeting which meets tomorrow!!!!  So exciting!  I wanted my name tag to look like a chalk board.  Yep.  It is the teacher in me popping out.  So much fun!  Just a little free motion writing with a couple doodle flowers.  

Our garden is a work in progress too.  The white roses are starting to open.  We have had so much rain.  And I forgot to mention...  a great BIG BLACK BEAR has been visiting!  Not happy.  He ate a full bird feeder full of sunflower seeds the other night.  Harumph!

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for Work in Progress Wednesday!
