Works in Progress #10

Wow! I've hit double digits in my WIP reports. Thank you to Lee for hosting Works in Progress Wednesday! Since school's let out, it's become a little ritual for me to post my progress in the morning and then sip (okay, guzzle!) a glass of wine at the end of the day (once the munchkins are asleep) while browsing all of the great works in progress through Lee's Freshly Pieced. Wednesday is becoming one of my favorite days of the week. So here's the 4-1-1 for me for this week. Oh, and the air conditioning has kicked in properly so I'm much less cranky this week. ;)

New Projects: After a brief break last week, willpower has held fast this week. Wait, does purchasing and planning for next projects count? No? Phew! There has been no cutting, I swear!

Completed Projects: No, but I'm so close that I can taste it!

Current Projects:
Bottled Rainbows (2) - I'm a woman on a mission! The boys are doing great. Interest is still strong to start, but I sense a disturbance in the Force! I am fighting it though. We have 26 of the 32 mosaics done. I've zigzag stitched all the pieces down for 21 of those 26. I'm slowly catching up. It's going to be tight to get it all in before vacation...

Don't you just love those VW bugs? They are all over our Bottled Rainbows. Oh, and my kids love selvages, sorry, "the numbers!"

Project Y - Nada! I'm still playing with the quilting designs. Oh, and I thought I had a name but the hubster (yes, it's cheesy, but I do sometimes call him the hubster) said, "well, you might not want to prejudice people". So, rethinking decision a bit, but may very well go with it anyways because I'm a rebellious kind of woman. :)
Stained Glass Lillies - Still plugging away on that mess of leading.

On Hold: (Thinking of finishing one of these puppies off just to knock it off the list! My bet is on 10 BX Leaves or Christmas Tree Skirt - they are both so close to being done!)

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Wow, you've got a lot on the go! All I've got are my hexies and a pillow on the go, not much time for anything else!

  2. Love the Bugs. The snippets of bottled rainbows look great. Wow and I thought I had lots on the go!

  3. Looks amazing, M-R! I must be out of date, though -- I thought the saying was "here's the 4-1-1..." when did they change it to 3? Yikes.

  4. Some very cool I-spies in your bottled rainbows. It is going to be awesome all put together!!!

  5. D'oh! You're right Doug! 3-1-1 is the number for government and community services here. I've made the change. Thanks!

  6. Love the Buggies! So cute and retro!

  7. Love the bugs (where did you GET that fabric?!?), and the quilt! Great job!
