WIP Wednesday - Decoy in Progress

We finally got a bit of rain this weekend... we badly needed it... the garden really needed it!  We woke up on Sunday to beautiful sunny skies, but by about 1:00 PM, we had dark clouds, loud thunder and some spectacular lighting. 

And what's better on a rainy Sunday afternoon than sitting at your sewing machine with beautiful fabric?  Well... almost nothing!  :-)

Decoy designed by Carrie Nelson (Another Bite of Schnibbles). 
Fabric:  Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille for Moda

I was able to piece all 9 blocks as well as most of the sashing.  I will be finishing the top this weekend.

Another project my sweetie and I have been working on is a new deck at the cottage.




That's not actually a door leading out to the deck, it's a huge window, but it's awesome!  And that room is where I sew.  So I can take little breaks and just step out onto the deck!

The railing isn't even built yet, but I've got my bistro furniture out there already.  Had my morning coffee out there Sunday morning.  It was great!




In progress:
- Two Percent (still at 4 blocks quilted out of 9 done)
- Decoy (the July Schnibble)
- Afghan (more grannies done and I also started weaving the ends - hate that part!)

Completed Projects:
None

New Projects:
None


Linking up at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!
