It's Wednesday, and I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced WIP Wed to share my "progress.
Besides the Polaroid Picture Swap blocks (the ones above I'm keeping for myself), and a few postcards (that I forgot to take pictures of), I haven't been doing a whole lot of sewing, but have spent a few really hot hours weeding our garden this week. We had a slow start this year, weather-wise, but with the triple digit temps we've had this past week, the garden is suddenly taking off!! I'll be eating the first garden zucchini of the year tonight for dinner!
Finally, a sneak peak at a small project a friend asked me to do. She loves my New Orleans Architecture quilt, and asked for a small wall hanging based on it. The dimensions she wanted, though, just wasn't working out, so I decided to create a new mini quilt, based on another iconic piece of New Orleans architecture, the "shotgun house". These are very narrow houses that are named such because a gun shot at the front door will pass through the whole house and out the back door without hitting a wall, as there is typically a hall that runs the whole length of it. Here's a sketch I drew out recently. Now I just need to start sewing it up!!
