WIP Wednesday ~ Scraps & Design Walls ~

I’m so happy that Lee of Freshly Pieced has started up her WIP Wednesday’s again!  Last year I started to use Wednesday’s to share what I was working on, but posting it to share with others really helped me get through my checklists and become more efficient.  So today I have one big (at least to me) WIP that I completed last week.

A Pinterest Pin Redone ~ My Great Granny Needlebook ~

Last week I found an adorable needle book on Pinterest. I pinned it right away, then clicked on the link to see if I could find out any more information. Bitty Bits & Pieces is where I found this cute needle book. And while there is no actual tutorial, she did give her finished measurements and the measurements of all the tiny blocks she used to make hers.  I took down the measurements and got to work. I kept with her original bitty block {Read More}
