Now, I don't normally do WIP Wednesdays usually because I don't feel I have much to show. The week I decide to join in turns out to be the week Lee @ Freshly Pieced decides not to hold her linky party. Och well. I'll share anyway.
One night a few weeks back, in a brave attempt to avoid late night fabric shopping, I found myself on Flickr and signing up for the Pillow Talk Swap 10 swap. I think it was this one that tipped me over the edge and made me realise that I needed to stop swapping for a while. Don't get me wrong, I am stoked to be part of this swap. It's just that I'm a little intimidated by the amazing loveliness that everyone makes so for me PTS has meant Pre-Trauma Stress! I have a very talented partner and had a pretty good idea what I wanted to make. That was until I was inspired to travel a different path when I saw this on one of Jo's Pinterest boards:

The other thing is that it's pretty big - I got the maths a bit wrong. I'm talking 20" square finished so it'll need a bigger form than requested too - I may send a form with it to make up for my oops. It needs to be in the post next week to meet the deadlines so I'll plough on and make a final decision when it's done and done.
