WIP Wednesday

Wednesday already? I'm going to just get on with it since I am not feeling great today.


Birthday present for a dear friend. At the time I posted about this, I had not given it to her yet. Now she has it and loves it! Plus we went out to lunch at a great Italian restaurant (which I am still eating leftovers from). I don't eat out much at all, so when I do it is a treat.

Birthday Present

Progress Made:

Halloween Mini - I'm hanging my head on this one. I really thought I would have this finished - and would have if not for work on other projects. I do have it quilted and just have to put on the binding. I see no reason why this won't be a finish by next week.


Garter Stitch scarf - Still slowly knitting on this. It is taking forever and ever.

Swoon Mini - I have this one basted and ready to quilt. I'm only posting a little sneak peek because well, I can. I did also alter the pattern a bit and haven't seen anyone else do what I did. I want to finish mine before I share the entire thing. This is on deck after I finish binding my Halloween mini.

Sparkle QAL - Fabrics have been cut. I thought I might have time to start sewing, but didn't. At least I'm caught up with the instructions being posted so there's that at least.

Dessert of the Month Club - I did buy a linen for this and threads. This one is a year long project obviously, so I'm not going to rush this. No picture of the threads though. I'll try to remember to take one before I start stitching.

No Progress:

Drunkard's Path QAL - Trimming=torture right now for me.
Sewing Machine Cover
Project for Migration Blocks - can't decide how to quilt them. I need to decide this before the end of the month.
Wedding Present (embroidered towels)
Kaleidoscope QAL
Zig Zag QAL
Tangerine Tango Challenge - stalled until I get my Konas in the mail.
2012 Color Challenge: January - Joann's didn't have all the solids I wanted to match the palette, so I've placed an online order. Not sure if they will come by the end of the month so I may dig through my scrap drawer.
Curves Class (starts Feb 1st)
For the Love of Solids Swap - partner assignment received and deciding on design/colors.
Made in Cherry QAL - fabrics picked out and I will be joining in.
Mouthy Stitches Swap - partner assignment received and am thinking about design ideas.
Embroidery Journal Project - still thinking of what I am going to do for January.
Embroidered Ornament set
Mini QT Swap - waiting on partner assignment.
Project Quilting Challenge - the challenge this week is music based. I'm trying to decide on a song title to use as inspiration.


Nothing! This is a first I think.

Linking up at Freshly Pieced. Be sure to check out everyone else's progress. Hope your Wednesday is going better than mine!

Your friend's gift is so fun! And it looks like you've gotten quite a bit done. Can't wait to see the mini Swoon!
