Works in Progress...

I started doing something with the MQG Michael Miller Cotton Couture challenge bundle.  I am not sure how many of you are familiar with the bundle but it was a selection of muted pastels.  Lovely but not my palette.  I ordered some brighter fabrics and finally took the plunge.  And this is what happened.  A whole lot of little blocks.  It will be a baby quilt.  Nothing too innovative for sure but there it is.

I also started a Christmas gift and this is a sneak peak.  With a monogram on Kraft-Tex no less.  And if you look closely you can see a golden retriever hair in the centre of the photograph.  Good grief.  What a fur ball!

A new thrift store opened up in our town last week.  I went in for a peak and left with 2 hats for my costume box, a bag of buttons all in pinks and some perle cotton.  The pink buttons were awesome with lots of vintage lovely including the buckle and some wonderful pink glass buttons.  Thank you, thrift shop.

And I picked up this amazing calender at the local book shop.  Seriously.  Weeks and Ringle and it comes with all the patterns.  Squeal!  Perfect for my sewing room.

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for Work in Progress Wednesday.  Have a super rest of your day!
