Paul's Wolf

Paul's been hinting that he wants me to finish this wolf wall hanging for Christmas. I've been working on it for the past two years. So today I took it to work to work on it during lunch. I figured if I just got started I could maybe get into working on it. I started with the ears and got them done. I love how they turned out. They are fused to a press sheet, so I can remove them and add them to the larger piece later.  I got started on the eyes, but only got one done. I'll have to work on the other one tomorrow. They are rather tedious, but coming along better than I expected. I have a mini iron and a omnigrid mat/ironing pad combo that works great for doing small parts of this project.
This is the Winter Wolf pattern I'm working on. Doing just a bit at a time may just work for me. I'd like to at least get it all put together before Christmas. I may not get it quilted, but if I got it put together I'd being doing really well. There is just something about all the pieces that really intimidates me. Hopefully I can finish it without Paul knowing. I think that would be cool, but I have a hard time not sharing what I'm working on with him, so we'll see how it goes.

You're like that little engine that could. You'll get it done. Just remember one piece at a time.
