I'd post a picture but the dratted boards are acting up again and I have no tool bar so... I'll give you my Photobucket links and you can check them out there instead...

I have several things in progress at the same time.

The first is The Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2103 for January, which is a monochromatic (yellows) block based on block 1 of SharonB's "I Dropped the Button Box" quilt. The basic block is assembled, No seam treatments yet beyond attaching some ribbons and trims.


The second is the Bead Journal Project 2013 for January which is a blue and white butterfly on a dark blue and silver-white snowflake fabric. I have outlined the butterfly and started the internal patterns on the wings.


The third is an assembly of my twelve 2011 BJP masks into a wall hanging. I have the top done (more or less), the backing picked out, the batting purchased and buttons to tie the quilt purchased as well. This stalled while waiting for the batting but I'm planning on a simple no-binding envelope-turned piece, tied with buttons on the back.

Here's the top: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v29/thatyank/thatyank%20siggies/Blog%2...
and the backing: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v29/thatyank/thatyank%20siggies/Blog%2...

I need to devise a hanging sleeve and a label as well...

And the fourth is the Elizabeth Almond blackwork piece, called "Red Thai Mandala", where I have managed to get about 50% of the first border done and a bit of the second border as well...


Anyone else have any WIPS?

WYSIWYG is back up, and even if the fix did erase some editing done on 1/6 and 1/7, at least new posts were not lost!

So I though I'd save you the trouble of linking to Photobucket and repost the photos of my WIPS for this past week's here...
