W.I.P.(Work In Progress) Wednesday

Warning: Put your glasses on - this is going to be a dark post! ~sigh~
It's Wednesday and time again to show you the progress I am making on my Alphabet Book.
I really need to do these blocks justice one of these days! They look so much better in the daylight hours. I tend to take pictures in the mornings when the lighting in my house is softer. Next week I will try to take them after I finish the blocks instead of waiting until the last minute!

I am staying on task with these blocks. Yay! Just a couple more weeks, and I will be able to assemble the book. I really can't wait. I have enjoyed making these, but my impatient brain has already moved on to other projects that I want to start. Do you ever do that? I am always two steps ahead of myself. I am GOING to finish this though - something tells me my granddaughter won't appreciate it as much if she were to get this when she is thirty :-)

I love to see what the fabrics look like when I put them together. I am just using what I have in my stash for these blocks.

You probably can't tell, (grrr!) but this fabric is made up of Autumn leaves. I thought it was appropriate for this block!

I thought this was cute - "Q" for 'Quack". Hope this won't confuse her! She will think Grandma doesn't know that duck begins with "D"!

This cute little rabbit needs a pink bow on her ear - I need to purchase some pink ribbon. Just wanted to show you what she will look like when she is finished.

I haven't started sewing on this block yet - I am not happy with the see through snowman! I may need to redo him and make him out of thicker material. After all - he isn't a ghost - he's a snowman!

Thanks for stopping by!

You might try stuffing a little cotton between your snowman and your square, kinda like trapunto quilting. He wouldn't be transparent then and would have more dimension.

I'm in love with that octopus, Kymber! Cute, Cute, Cute!

Hi "Beginner"
Don't know if you will stop by again to read this, but I was unable to go to your blogsite because I was unable to access it. (it said you need to enable your profile?)
Thank you for your great advice! I am going to try it and will show you the results next week. I am doing the happy dance now that I don't have to scrap this block.

I don't have a blogsite TO access. I am glad you found my remarks helpful. Looking forward to seeing the finished block.

Kymber, thanks for sharing your creative talents with all of us. I pray the Lord blesses your day tomorrow in a most unbelievable, "God is Amazing!!!" kind of a day.-Kathy
