WIP Wednesday

I have several things going right now.  
I'm working on some bridal shower gifts and 
trying to get my The Splendid Sampler blocks caught up.  
I spent a lot of time on this paper pieced block on Saturday 
(when I should have been in the garden weeding)
I think the resultant block turned out well though!


Hubby and son were out fishing on Saturday and since he does most of the cooking I decided to cook.  I made some chicken pot pie. 
 I use broccoli as my kids don't like peas.  
Kicker is that they are no longer at home and hubby likes peas better, but I love the broccoli!  


I decided to embroider some "Kitchy" kitchen towels for the bridal shower as part of my gift.  
I did get this one teapot finished, but have 3 more to do.  
There are black stripes down each side of the towels. 
 Their kitchen theme seemed to be black and white, so I thought these would be fun!


I also madea pair of oven mitts.  I love that the dots have faces!


I lined the mitts with white polka dots on black, so cute!


I also got the last round of my bee blocks finished.  So I guess that is not a WIP but the bee is a constant WIP!


Now I just need time to finish the embroidery on the last towels.
Quilt Fox Face quilt for the next baby.
Assemble the Little Birdie quilt and get that quilted.
Just a few balls in the air.

Your paper pieced block is incredible! And so are all your other accomplishments. I need to make some oven mitts. Yours turned out fabulous! Did you use a tutorial or just wing it?
