Works in Progress Wednesday - November 15, 2011

Wretched Wednesday. Well, it's not really Wednesday that is wretched, it's just how I'm feeling today. I've been trying to outrun something since Monday, but I hit the wall last night. Ugh! Sore throat, icky cough, body aches, etc. I hate being sick. I'm a total wuss about it too. Bleh! Anyways...

A few people commented how much they liked my rationalization last week of quilting over laundry. Well, upon reading my blog post, the hubster pointed out (with humour and only a smidge of sarcasm) that the kids can't wear quilts to school. Hmmm, he may have me there. Lots of laundry got done this weekend. That said, I am tempted to tell the kids that wearing clothes inside out is a cool fashion statement so we get an extra wear out of their clothes. ;)

The terrific Tabatha of Bending Pins is hosting TGIFF! this Friday. I hope you come check out the beautiful finishes and link up one of your own, if you have one. Check out the TGIF Friday! site for more details.

As I mentioned on Monday, I did get a chance to clean up my studio this weekend and I found more WIPs/UFOs! Aack! How can there possibly be more!? *Hanging head in shame* Well, I brought them into this world so I will be accountable for them - they've been added to my list below and I'll tell you more about them in the coming weeks.  

New Project: No, I need to finish something from that danged WIP list.

Completed Projects: One - my little obsession from last week, Season's Greetings, is done. Yay! 

Current Projects:
Just Me and My Peeps- Working on the backing and made the binding. Nothing exciting to show.

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Love your Bargello quilt. I have often thought of trying one, but always thought they would be too difficult. I just might have to rethink that since you said it was quite easy.

  2. God is really like the Bargello. I have never sewn this pattern. beautiful colors. Congratulations.

  3. Bargello samples you sent me? how to do?

  4. oh my. That red and tan circle is so spectacular!! Seriously... I'm speechless!!!

    I choose quilting over laundry too. Everytime. ;)

  5. Wow! What a beautiful Bargello quilt...on 3 weeks of underwear and a lot of grace can be extended towards others! lol

  6. Ok, seriously Season's Greetings quilt/card holder is the best thing ever! So genius, I am sure your family will enjoy it for so many years to come!
