Work In Progress Wednesday

         Today I have 2 projects to show you.
Here an update on the january block for the CQJP2014.

As you can see it is not finished yet.
The green leaves take a lot of time to embroider and my sight is not good enough for stitching them in the evening, so I can only work 
on them by day and my hours are very limited then.
Also I am always working on more blocks at one time, so I still hope to get 2 blocks finished this month!
This is another project I am working on.
I love shabby chic fabric journals and for a long time I already want to start with the making of one of them. 
I have collected antique and vintage laces and doilies for it, but constantly hesitated.
Last Saturday I decided to just give it a try.
This is the start of the cover of the book........
More WIP'S you can find on Sharon Boggons website!

Your CQ stitching is bliss. I love your addition of the beads along the edging. Lovely lace collage. Creative Bliss...

Beautiful block. It is so rich looking. I am attracted to the shabby chic books too but have yet to make one. You are off to a great start on yours!

Your leaves look marvelous as does your lace collage - a very good start to 2014!
