WIP Wednesday

On Sunday, I decided to raise the "wonder walls" that comprise my design wall by about six inches.  I have two of them, side by side, and they each have a set of grommets on top, so it just involved raising the nails in the wall. In so doing, of course nearly all the Farmer's Wife blocks fell to the floor. They are still there. Definitely a Work in Progress.
 This cute guy turned 4 today.
He had a pirate party the other day with his friends. So of course he needed a new pillow case. Made out of pirate treasure map fabric.
Among other projects, which made a pretty pile of scraps...
...I worked on my granny square quilt, which I am enjoying immensely, by the way.
And the quilt already has a name: Granny was Amish. The name makes me smile.

There is still time to win some scraps here.

Thanks, Lee, for hosting this every week.

You are the best at coming up with names! I should send you a quilt picture that I'm stumped on naming to see if you can think of something for it!! The name is so very perfect :) And those blocks look so very awesome!!

Lots of fun things going on in your house these days! I know what you mean about raising your design wall. The nails that hold mine are way high, making the entire design wall more reachable and usable for me. Funny that your blocks ended up on the floor... and are still there!

Happy 4 to the grandson! Looks like a fun party with that pirate theme.
