WIP Wednesday – Happy Mail and 2 Finishes

Yesterday was a happy mail day over here, already started planning some more projects with my new Bundles. I got Hothouse Flowers & Sweet As Honey, my first sidekick ruler by jaybirquilts and over 100 zippers from zipit.

Circle of Geese Pillow -– Got so excited when my new printer arrived, so I had to do some paper piecing. Totally missed it the last 2 years without. And the best part its already finished. Glad my zippers arrived yesterday. Did a zipper closure and for the first time it worked like a charm no struggling or ripping out a thousand times, just one try and perfect fit. Why cant they all be this way? Will do a separate post with more close-up shots soon.


Pouch for my father -– This one is also finished since yesterday and I totally like it. Its really big, 12” wide, but he requested it this way. I used again the tutorial by 1/4 inch mark. Also included pockets inside. Now just hoping he likes it. 



Once Upon A Time Sampler -– finished finally my April block, yeah I know Im a bit behind. Totally love this block with Goldilocks and the three bears –- the cutest
