WIP Wednesday

I am raring up to end June with a flurry of finishes.  I finished binding one quilt last night and have another to start hand stitching the binding on tonight.  I also have one quilt top to finish before the weekend, and a post about my most recent finish coming on Friday. 
 
Sadly, that means I don't have a whole bunch to show you right now, but I did make this bright and cheerful double-nine patch block for Jane, who is part of my group in the Simply Solids Bee.

I also signed up for ~ the sewing room swap ~ this weekend.  Even though I said I was taking a break from swaps for a while, I had to sign up to this one after I saw how many crazy talented people were signing up.  This is my mosaic - I think the swap is nearly full but there might be a few spaces left if you are interested - just make sure you check out the rules before signing up.

I had a small fangirl moment when Amy aka badskirt commented on my mosaic. I think I managed to maintain my dignity, but only because it was online - if it had been real life I'm sure I would have come across as a gibbering idiot!
 
So, have you got a couple of finishes coming up to mark the half-way point of 2013?  Can you believe we are nearly half-way through 2013 already?!

You have some wonderful things in your mosaic Adrianne! I hope you get a creative partner who is able to fulfil your swap 'dreams'!!

Badskirt is not that scary! I see her all the time, although I've never actually properly introduced myself!

All of my finishes always happen all at once, too. So I'm happy to look at that cheery bee block and wait patiently. :) if someone figures out how to properly cycle projects so that they're not done all at once they should write aboute it!

I laughed about your comment about Badskirt--I'd be a blithering quilter, too!

I need to go and look at some of your recent finishes, but wanted to leave a comment here, saying how much I love your colorful block, as well as the look of your blog--so fresh and clean and interesting.

Great looking mosaic. I haven't done too many swaps because I'm always guarding my sewing time, but your post gives me encouragement to try one day.

That swap looks like a lot of fun, I had a hard time resisting, but it would have been completely impossible right now. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make :)
