wool mittens from sweaters

Another We did it Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday!

Sometimes I feel so accomplished when I do a Wednesday post and sometimes… not so much!  Then I start my post and realize, wow, I kinda kicked butt! lol

I got my February Block of the Month – Hexi Flower  listed on my site – if you’d like to follow along – each month I list the new ‘block’ FREE on my site for the entire month – when the month is over I list the new block of month free and the previous one is still available on Craftsy!

Here is a pic of the February Block done in the english paper piecing method.

I’m also working on a row robin project with  my quilt guild.  I completed this row that I showed you in a previous WIP post

My row (above) was passed on to someone in my group and I received this super cute (all paper pieced) train row!  I’ve started to design a row that I will add on before it’s passed to the next quilter in the ‘robin’ group. This quilt is all about the building of the railroad and is supposed to ‘scream patriotism’ so my plan is to add red white and blue ‘smoke’ coming from the train… here is my first go at it…

I used a dresden plate for cutting my smoke pieces…

Here is where I’m at now…  I still have to applique some ‘smoke’ down to the engine and who knows what else?

Last but not least –

I made a some mittens and a little painted ‘sign’ for my musical ‘secret valentine’.

See the mitten gallery here.

Find the mitten pattern on Craftsy.

    That train is amazing! My son would love that. Is it a pattern or did you design it yourself?

      The train is a foundation paper piece pattern my fellow guild member made.
