I usually have a number of things that I am juggling at any given time, so finding some things “in progress” to discuss is just about the easiest conversation starter one could give me!
When one of my favorite bloggers, Shellyfish, started a “Work in Progress Wednesday” project to encourage fellow bloggers to share their artistic endeavors and crafty works in progress with one another, I immediately wanted to participate but hung back because – as many of you have noticed – midweek blogging can be a challenge for me. However, after weeks of watching the participants’ works in progress transform, one by one, into works completed, I decided to find the time mid-week and participate because I, too, need to get some of these works in progress moving along to the finish line!
First I’ll share the food related work, and then, at the bottom, it’ll be the crafty stuff for those of you who are interested.
My garden (an edible work in progress):
Currently in my “winter” garden I am growing: basil, rosemary, 2 kinds of oregano, 3 kinds of mint, sage, eggplant, ancho peppers, zucchini, butternut squash, scallions, big mama limas, spinach, 3 kinds of tomatoes, cucumbers, green bell peppers, flavorburst bell peppers, anaheim peppers, false alarm habeneros, bush beans, a mystery squash that is growing out of my compost pile (I suspect pumpkin), and a wide variety of flowers.
My quilt (a inedible work in progress):
This is a simple quilt made of 4×4″ squares of Amy Butler Midwest Modern fabric.
And there’s this guy who hung around as I took pictures of the quilt but, as you can see, was not altogether interested in my project (I’ll try not to take it personally):
Isn’t he handsome?
If you like what you see with the works in progress, take some time to check out other Wednesday Works in Progress. Also, while you’re cruising around the internet take the time to stop by and check out another awesome & creative blogger to see what Jes did with my humble little banana bread recipe.
