WIP Wednesday - High Seas blocks done :)

After a veritable sewing frenzy over the last two nights, I finished off the last two rows of blocks (apart from the first three which I still intend on re-doing!)


So there it is in all its glory (?). I think I like it, but I'm still not sure about a few of my fabric choices... I think I'm going to leave this one for a while and work on some other projects (of which I have many lined up - more about that in a moment!) I've also just noticed that the first block in the third row should be rotated 90 degrees to look like it actually will...

So other projects? Well after much (well a small amount of) resistance, I've decided to join in the Swoon QAL. I've signed up for the 4 x 5 bee (yay! my first bee!) and the for the love of solids swap (also yay!).  I'm also participating in the Name Game Swap. Plus the Sew. Happy. Quilt QAL. And possibly get something on the go for the Tango challenge. Overcommitted you might ask? I think if I prioritise and keep up the ridiculous amount of time I spend sewing each night it will be fine :) I just might not be all that sane by the end of it all...

So my WIP list just got massive-er. But I'm really excited about all of them, so that must count for something, right? Right!

I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday and Fabric Tuesday
