WIP Wednesday

It's time for the linky party at Lee's! Head over and tell us what you are working on and see what others are sharing too!

This week has been pretty slow in the sewing area.

I worked on figuring out how to make a Dresden Plate with this Tumbler Template. I was successful. :)

I started the baby gift blanket last night and got the center star pieced and one border on. And that is pretty much it in the sewing arena.

I also made 4 poptop cans at the U.F.O. gathering this week. But that is not sewing. :)

I finally got my new version of Photoshop Elements installed (that I got for Christmas). It has been interesting trying navigate my way around it since I jumped from version 2 to version 9.  Yeah it was old. :)

Current WIPs:

Baby blanket: borders and sandwich
Baby quilt: trim and bind
Dresden Plate pillow: make pillow
Supernova blocks: cut and piece
Zippy Purse Swap: cut and put together
