WIP Wednesday #15

Whew...just walked in the door...another long day.  But a good one.  I spent the day volunteering in Em's class then we headed to the "big city" for a Dr. appt, tux fitting and a trip into Justice in the mall for Emma.  Then we ran by JoAnn Fabrics because I needed thread, all before grabbing supper and heading home.  I'm tired just telling y'all!  But a day spent with my kiddos is a good day indeed.  The tux fitting was for Oren.  Since he's going to be the little Homecoming King so he has to wear a little tux.  He was so precious, I'm mad at myself for not snapping a quick pic of him in that tux jacket, khaki shorts and tennis shoes.

Completed Projects:
 --Nothing fully completed this week.  It's one of those weeks.  Oh well, life is good.  Life is a work in progress, right??

Works in Progress:
--Summer Sampler Quilt--I am determined to finish this bad boy so it doesn't end up down below in the UFO list.  I actually don't have much to go to finish the blocks.  I've got my next Evening Star block cut out and ready to rock.  I just need to find the time to rock it.  It'll get there...probably Friday.

--Fall Pops---I managed to iron and baste this guy.  I had some doubts on thread choice and that's what I got thread for today.  I'm going to spend some time tomorrow or Friday practicing my FMQ since it's been QUITE a while since I did anything big and then I'm all set to turn on some music and go.

This one is basted and ready to go in the morning. 

--Mittens--I took a few days off from these because honestly, I was so darn tired by the time I got the kids in bed I just vegged on the couch for an hour while we caught up on DVRed shows.  But, I've got the thumb of my right mitten made and am working up the fingers.  HOPEFULLY I'll be done with mitten 1 and moving on to mitten 2 by next week.

--do. Good Stitches--I've got my fabrics for this beauty all cut out and have some half-square triangles to get sewing.  :)  I am so excited about this one.  

--Gator Greek Crosses--I think I may just go ahead and cut the pieces for this one this weekend.  I can't stand to look at this beautiful pile anymore and am ready to get busy on it.

I have added in a few more oranges and blues and even a few greens.  CAN'T WAIT!!
Poor, lonely Unfinished Projects that have been cast aside:
--"Sent with Love" postage stamp quilt.  Just waiting on my swap blocks and this little lonely is making his way back to the WIP list!

--Mosaic Swap quilt.  Actually, I think this one needs one more row sewn on before I can quilt it.  But I haven't touched it in like 4 months, so I'm not sure on that one.  ;)

--My poor Sewing Room Sampler is getting moved to the UFO list.  I will finish it, but right now, it's taking a back seat to my other projects.  

  I've got tomorrow morning and most of Friday to sew this week, so I'm hoping to make BIG progress by the weekend.  Keep your fingers crossed for me!  And as always, go check out Lee and all of the lovely quilters that link up!

  1. I bet he is going to look so cute out there!! I think I just got a little tired reading about your day! That is a lot to do by yourself, much less with 3 kids. Your Fall Pops is so pretty! How did the quilting go? And as much as I hate to say it, the Gator quilt is going to be fabulous. Those colors will look great together!


I'd love to hear from you, so let me know...whaddya think!
