WIP Wednesday

Finally, a bit of progress, with the help of a blizzard.  Two days off from work:)
One of my goals for the new year was to try something different.  Sewing curves was at the top of my list.  This block is from Angela Pingel's A Quilters Mixology.  There are more than a few quilts that I'd like to make from this book.
I've finished all the larger blocks.
I still have most of the smaller ones to complete.  All the curves are done.  They are really not that difficult.  The smaller ones are harder since you have less room to fudge with.  I'm hoping to finish the blocks by tonight. 
My other WIP is this herb garden.
I gave one of these to my son and his wife for Christmas.  It was the perfect gift.  My DIL is a gardener and my son is a bit of an urban homesteader but there's not much you can do in the cold New Hampshire winters. They're growing kale in theirs. 
Amazon had a deal on them so I gave myself a gift as well. I planted this one just under 4 weeks ago.  So far, so good.  I grow a lot of herbs in my yard during the summer and always miss them in the winter.  I can't resist the smell of fresh basil.

Joyful stitching,


  1. Beautiful Curves!! Curves are on my list to learn also and after seeing yours I might have to tackle them sooner rather than later.

  2. Ooo you've been tackling curves too! They look great and your herb garden looks fantastic too.

  3. Love the herb garden! And love the curves! Good for you trying something new! I love pushing myself...goals are fabulous!
