Hi everyone, glad you could visit me.

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.


  1. I think you have done very well especially with all your health issues! Great projects, Marla!

  2. Sorry about your back. Glad you are feeling better. Cute projects.

  3. I love the red border around your granny squares. I'm in the middle of making one myself and thought it needed a little something, and a border is what it needs!

  4. Back issues are just the worst...glad you're feeling better! Looks like you've made some pretty amazing projects in spite of that sore back. :O)

  5. That popped rib must've been a very painful ordeal for you. Good thing that your chiropractor dealt with it during your appointment. I hope it didn't bother you again after that. If it continues to be a bother, perhaps another appointment would straighten things out for good. Take care!
