WIP it Wednesday!

This post contains ad links. See disclosure page for more information.

Whew!  Today has been busy, busy, busy!  But, I promised a list of my WIP’s!  One of the best ways to learn more about sewing or crocheting, is to join a CAL or QAL.  What is that, you ask?  It’s a crochet-a-long or quilt-a-long!  Usually, there is one block, square, or item per month.  Some do one or two per week and there are even some that have one daily.  Sometimes a QAL is called a BOM, which means block of the month.  Below is a (partial) list of the ones I have signed up with.  Why partial?  Because sometimes I sign up for one and really don’t have the time to do it, but I collect them for later!  The list will contain pictures of what I have done and links so you can sign up too if you want!

I really wish I had selected brighter colors for this, especially after seeing everyone else’s!

Holiday Stashdown 2016 CAL

Website – http://www.ravelry.com/groups/holiday-stashdown-cal

Frequency – 1 gift per month, January to August, 1 gift per week September to mid-December

This CAL is on Ravelry, which requires you to create an account.  It’s free and a great place to meet crocheters and knitters, find new patterns, and keep up with what you are working on.

This one is really fun, because you make something different everytime and you have gifts for your friends and family at the end!  That’s a hat and cowl in the pic, by the way!




These two are just personal quilts I’m making:


Bunny Quilt


Quilt for my son







found strawberries




As you can see, I’ve got quite a lot on my plate!  What about my garden?  Well, it’s still a WIP, but not much to show right now except this strawberry plant I uncovered.  Proof it was growing real food at one time!




And, as if that’s not enough, look what landed in my kitchen today –



Courtesy of my grandmother-in-law, 3 boxes of peaches and 6 cantaloupes!  Peach cobbler and smoothies here I come!

Ya’ll have a great evening, and until next time…

What are some of your WIPs?
