W.I.P. Wednesday

I think if I keep my eyes shut it is still winter out. It is so cold and wet. It is not even funny any more. I told my husband if it doesn't warm up I was quitting work and going home. My feet has been wet for a week now. I used to enjoy working but now I just want to go home even though my house is full. Enough complaining. It won't do any good. LOL
It is time for W.I.P Wednesday again. I finally got the Star Stash quilt done. Connie and Marjorie has had theirs done for a while. So I have finally caught up. Yeah.

This one went together very nicely. It is the first quilt that when you squared up the block that is was perfectly 10" square. You can get this pattern from Connecting Threads sight.  That is where I bought the material. I give this pattern a 10. I am not sure how I will machine quilt this. Maybe I will wait and see how the girls quilt theirs.

I also finished two more of these wall hangings. 

One is now hanging in my trailer and I have an extra for a gift.  I love how this piece went together. 
So stop on over and visit Monika at the Needle and Thread Network and see what everyone else is working on.

Boys another week gone. Where does the time go? I am happy to say that I do have May flowers. Remember an earlier post I didn't expect much until June but here they are.

The snow was to the top of that rock the first of May and these happy little blooms came through. Nice.

A good week getting things done. I finished this lap quilt. It turned out really pretty. A pattern from the Missouri Quilt Company.

Another gift for Christmas. 

The son  that never buys me a Mother's day gift brought me this beautiful hanging basket. I was so surprised that I had to give him a hug. Ryan told me to enjoy them as it might be the only gift for the next five years. That would be just like him.
I was down to my friend Marjorie's Monday and put together this wall hanging for my friends birthday tomorrow. I hope she will like it.

I love this piece. I have two more on the go. One for me and an extra just encase I need another gift. 
So tomorrow I head back to Prince Edward Island to start working with my husband again. My sewing machine is all packed in the car with a few little projects to work on when the erg hits me and rainy days. So head on over to The Needle and Thread Network and see what everyone else is working on.

W.I.P. Wednesday

I am hooking up with Monika with the Needle and Thread Network again to show what I did get accomplished this week even though I spent part of the week laid up with my back. A bad weekend but a visit to the chiropractor on Monday got me going again. I had a popped rib and the lower part of my back decided it didn't want to get out of bed. It didn't help that I had gone on a convention for Tops in Fredericton this weekend. I missed Saturday morning but did manage the afternoon and the banquet. Sunday was bad getting in the vechicle to go home and Monday was worse. Feeling better now.
Since I didn't post last week this is over the last two weeks.

I finished another weekender except for the buttons on the pockets. It is now ready for my big trip in the fall. I helped a lady who was given a quilt frame  how to work it and she gave me this beautiful red material. It should be nice for my carry on.

I made this quilt two summers ago and finally got it quilted. I was going to hand quilt it but did it on the machine. It turned out really well. I had a better picture but for some reason it failed to load. I love the little red boarder around the out.

I also got some more blocks done for the Star Stash that Connie, Marjorie and I are working on. I have forty done and forty more to go. And I also got a little lap quilt put together which I am taking with me to craft night this evening to put together to machine quilt. I hope to do that this weekend.  So all in all I got quite a lot done.
