WiP Wednesday #20

Hello, everyone! Welcome to another Work In Progress Wednesday. I'm your host, Jerimi.

As a PSA, I wanted to pass on a little tip if you're a blogger. Many blogs are set up so that people can only comment if they have, for instance, a WordPress account, or Gmail account, or Blogger, or... you name it. If your blog isn't set up to allow people the option to comment with "Name/URL", then you're missing out on reader participation. Between my various jobs and everything else, I already have 5 (FIVE!) email accounts to look after. I'll bet I'm not alone in that. I'm unlikely to take the time to set up yet another account, even if I really, really want to leave a comment. It's just too much to keep track of.

So, if you want more participation on your blog, make sure your comments are set to allow "Name/URL" as an option. :) Ok, that's the end of my PSA for today. I promise.

I'm getting really close to having a batch of pet blankets done. The bindings need to be hand sewn on the back, and I still need to make and attach catnip pockets. So close!

I'm also creeping up on my 100-item goal for my Etsy shop. It's been a long haul, but I'm nearly there. :) Everything I've read says 100 is the magic number. Does anyone have any opinion to add to that assertion? Have you found it to be true? Please feel free to chime in!

Last week we were joined by several talented quilters. It gets really hard to choose just one to feature!

I'd like to draw your attention to Fabric Fascination. She's been working on a Birthday Placemat tutorial. How cute is this?

She's also got a great tutorial on binding. It's well-worth a read. You can visit her Etsy shop by clicking here.

Ready to join the linky party? I would love to see what everyone is working on! It will be open from today through next Monday. You can join up at any time between now and then.

I love seeing what everyone is working on! Your pet blankets are so cute! I've thought about making some tiny doll quilts for my girls, kinda like your pet quilts. Very cute. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the feature Jerimi. I did finish that placemat BTW.
