WIP Wednesday 5.3.17

Four weeks to go until school's out for summer!  I'm still making a lot of headway on getting WIPS closer to the finish without starting too many more!  Whohoo!  Check it out:

I completed ALL of the handwork of applique on Homestead Harvest.

I'm STILL stitching the binding of the Underpants Project by hand...  It's less than 36" x 36"...  Yes, this is the same picture I showed last week.  Hopefully THIS week will be the big progress.

Garden Party (pattern by Bonnie Hunter in her Addicted to Scraps book) grew by TWO rows!

I finished the quilting on Scrappy Stars.

I totally finished another charity quilt for our local quilt guild.  Here's Shoo Fly:

Check out the back of Shoo Fly and my feathers using a pantograph:

I'm still hangin' with Pat Sloan and keeping up with the Solstice Challenge.  This is block #19 of 25 called Board Games.  Only six more blocks to go!

One House, Two House. This quilt pattern I found in a book called Welcome Home~~Surround Yourself With Country Warmth by Cheryl Wall. 
I don't usually post pictures of myself, but why not?  Our almost 10-year-old son loves to grab the camera and take pictures.  It's also fun to see the view from his eyes.  Don't mind my messed up hair...  I don't.  It's a casual Sunday after church when I found some quilting time. 

You can tell that most of the effects from the Bell's Palsy on 2/11/17 is gone.  My smile is a little crooked, but I'm thankful I can smile again.  I still can't whistle or blow up a balloon.  My eye has trouble adjusting to sunny days.  But it's totally bearable and not the end of the world.  God is good.

I finished out the month of April for the RSC17 (Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017 that meets up in a linky party each Saturday at Angela's blog, (SoScrappy) with a binding blitz.  I'm finally putting the binding on a Block Lotto quilt.  I won these Big O blocks from the Block Lotto on 12.31.2014.
One by one another WIP will be biting the dust!

  1. Glad things are better for you, your projects are fantastic!!!

  2. I love that Homestead Harvest block. You are making great headway on your projects.

  3. You're making great progress - love shoo fly! Good to hear that Bell's palsy is diminishing. Thanks for sharing on Midweek Makers

  4. Oh man! Talk about ME being busy, look at you go!!! Love that scrappy one that grew by two rows this week. You sew and you long arm. You go girl!

  5. I really like summary posts, even when I've seen the in between posts. It puts things in perspective, and my perspective is ... what a lot of work you've accomplished - and play, too.
