Wednesday Wait Loss 3

Well, it’s Week 3 of my Wednesday Wait Loss linky party and I wish I had better news to report on my end. No progress on my two projects from last week. There’s a reason I was distracted and unfocused, and I’ll be posting about that soon.

This is Besties, for my bestie Alice.

Today though I want to focus on those pesky WIPs. Why is it that we put them off? I certainly have a lot of sewing to do, and even with last week’s chaos I got two new mini quilts done for Island Batiks, and made some progress on pattern writing. I think for me it's having some sort of deadline that helps me get things done. For my longstanding WIPs, it's not only the lack of a deadline but also a little bit of out of sight, out of mind. So it’s my hope that Wednesday Wait Loss will help. For me, it's keeping me accountable for finishing (or at least making some progress on) the WIPs I report here. I hope it can work in that way for you as well.

So this week I need your help to push through and get these two quilts done! I've got a lot of work related deadlines I must finish but I don't want to not make progress on these. Help me get over this wait!

Time for this week’s feature. Anja from Anja Quilts linked up the most beautiful paper pieced blocks, created by a friend of hers—Andrea @ 3rd Story Workshop.

So beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing them Anja. Grab your I was Featured button for you blog.

Before I move on, I want to also share Susie’s project. Susie is not a blogger, but she is a skilled piecer. Still, this ol’ block was giving her such fits! Let’s all cheer her on to a quick finish on this one.

Sadly, we only had two people link up last week. Surely you all have WIPs? If not, share your finishes! We’d love to see. To encourage everyone to get into the Wednesday Wait Loss habit, I’m having a giveaway!
