WIP Wednesday -- Another Productive Week!

It's been another productive week.

I completed the Pumpkins & the Beanstalk quilt in time for the happy mom-to-be.



I loaded this customer quilt on the frame.  Expect another fabulous Friday finish!


It was explorer day this week at the elementary.  Meet the young Henry Hudson... with the help of a blazer from Goodwill and a curtain, some stretchy crushed blue fabric, a cowboy hat, and a mustache from his costume box, he was good to go.  (It's cold here in Ohio -- in the high 20's.  Wearing his sweat pants under his costume instead of my shoes with the big buckle and white stockings didn't work.)



I made a lot of progress on my sew-to-go project which is an EPP table topper.



Our elf, Chippy, did not make his appearance yet this year.  In place of Chippy, his cousin (Blue) showed up telling us that Chippy had knee surgery.  The escapades continue.



Sadly, a quilt is lost.  I mailed this quilt to my customer in Indiana.  She in turn mailed it to her mother in Florida.  It has been delivered to the wrong address and not found yet. :(



I did not start any new projects this week.  This brings my WIP list down to 67 projects.  I've had list in the upper 90's in the past.

  1. Oh no.....a lost quilt? I hope it is found. We've had so many stolen packages from porches lately. I'm thinking that mailing with "signature required" might be the way to go when shipping quilts - especially a memory quilt like that.

  2. SEW sorry to hear about the list quilt!! Every quilter's worst nightmare. At least, it got to your client in good shape. That was a relief for you!!
