WIPs With Friends

As I look back over the past month, not one person has linked up with what they are working on.  
Is anyone even interested in doing this or should I just forget posting this each week?  

I decided to start working on one of my February goals. 
 I pulled out the Chubby Chicks stuff I had started. 
 It seems I was not as far along as I had hoped. 
 I had all the chicks fused and everything cut out, but nothing sewn.
  So last night I outlined over half of the chick blocks.  
As I was working on them I remembered how much I like them.  


Currently, they are blind.
I need to decide how I want to make eyes.
I could satin stitch the eyes, but that's not very likely.
I could use buttons, but also unlikely since this quilt would be for a child.
So that leaves making French knots.
Which I might do using some Perle cotton.


Someone else suggested a Colonial knot which I had no idea the difference.  
So I looked it up on You Tube.
  THIS is a great tutorial on how to make a Colonial knot. 
 Which, if I use Perle cotton, will probably be a good choice. 
 I just need to get some black Perle cotton.

I will link this up with Sew Fresh Quilts.

Please link up what you are working on here using the linky button.
Also, let me know if any of you want me to continue to do this as a link up.

Happy Stitching

I think I linked up to you once or twice but your link up was new to me and I might have forgotten a time or two in recent weeks. There are a lot of blogs that do link ups on Wednesday

I just discovered your WIPs with Friends and I'm excited to join in your linky party!

I just had an idea...I think it would help if you could offer a clickable link to your linky party. People would put it on their blog and you'd get more traffic. I had to make my own badge for your site for my blog.

I don't know how to link... and whether you would consider non-quilting projects. I have been doing a lot of needle felting and my hands are proof - lots of stab wounds!!
