WIP With Friends

I have a few things to share with you.  
I made most of these over the weekend. 
 They will be added to the center of the traveling quilt that I currently have.  
The theme is "garden".

First up were these adorable mushrooms.  
I think that I am going to need some "filler" in-between the animals I want to make 
and these are about 4.5" tall.  
This pattern is by Stitching Notes and can be found here.

The next thing I did was this flower.  It is called Wild Carrot and is by Violet Craft.

The last one I managed to finish was this fairy and it is by the Tartan Kiwi.  
I didn't think this one would be as difficult as it ended up being.  
The fairy "bits" were not colored in or notated in any way 
on the paper pieced portion of the pattern at all.  
I had to look at the colored drawing and try to figure it out myself 
then remember where to put that on the actual pattern.  
I had the head all sewn until I realized I forgot to do the neck in flesh color and, of course, those pieces were two of the first ones! 
I had to rip it all out and re-sew it.  
I wish she had given her hair too. 
 I guess I might have been able to alter the pattern but there was NO WAY I was going to rip that part out one more time! 
 This was my first time using a FPP pattern from her so I don't have experience to know if all her patterns are uncolored. 
 It is so much easier if the background or the object are somehow distinguished from each other!!!

I still need to make one more flower and 2 more blocks then figure out how to put them all together.

What are you working on?
