That means I need to write up a WIP Wednesday post since I've been neglecting the blog for so long.
So for the past couple of months, I was just working on cranking out Christmas gifts and working on my Swoon quilt. Now Christmas has passed and I've got my Swoon blocks all finished. They still need to be sashed. I'm debating whether I want to just put them into storage and finish up some older, more spring-like WIPs or just get the top done and wait to baste/quilt it when I'm feeling more Chirstmassy. On top of that, I used my Flurry scraps to make a zig-zag baby quilt (with those bonus HSTs you cut off while making the Swoon blocks) and started an EPP project with diamonds and hexagons and jewels. Although staring at Flurry prints is getting old (it's been a few months now and Christmas is over...but I do LOVE the prints, it's just time for a change!)
|EPP Flowers/Stars... however you want to look at it :)|
The EPP project is great because I can work on it whenever. Tomorrow I am in the field for work - I have a feeling I will be spending a lot of time "watching" from my heated car (it's only going to be 15 degrees!) and it's nice to feel like you're accomplishing something while avoiding being cold! It occupied most of my down time when I went home for Christmas.

The only thing I'm regretting is using white thread - it shows through a little bit, especially on the darker colors. But whatever, it's hand made and that makes it obvious :) Perhaps when this is finished some day, I will try hand-quilting it. We'll see. I'm also playing with layout ideas in my head. The fabric scraps are only going to go so far. I might try floating the flowers in more white rather than connecting the points.
|The white stitches show through on the seams... oh well, too late now!|

So that's my first WIP Wednesday post for 2013! I'm linking up to Freshly Pieced as usual - take a look and get some inspiration for your 2013 WIPs!!
