WIP Wednesday 7.13.22

Welcome, July.  Here's what happened this past two weeks:

The little Kathleen Tracy doll quilt QA is complete.

I'm working on this Jack & The Beanstalk quilt every Sunday until it is complete.  It is on the longarm now.  I'm considering donating this one to a charity auction in mid November.  I'm not sure if it should be this one or my plus quilt (that also still needs to be completed) for donation.

I found a bag of kite blocks in the drawer that had been there just too long.  I decided to put them together.
It's been in the drawer so long that it's not even on my WIP list -- until now...  Patty suggested that I add another row of blocks and then a border to make it a more useable size.  That's my plan now.  Thanks, Patty!


My sew-to-go bag was packed and ready.  Our son's tonsil surgery was CANCELLED yesterday.  Grr.  Now he needs more tests before the simple surgery can be done.  They called me THREE minutes before I  was going to leave yesterday.  At least I didn't  get to the hospital only to find it was cancelled.  My to-go bag will have to wait for now.  I have bigger fish to fry.

I continue to have to water the garden.  There's a 40% chance of rain this afternoon.  We shall see.  I've been working in the garden and in the flowerbeds 1 to 2 hours a day.  I consider it my exercise.  I have been motivated to do so after seeing a friend's garden from church.  I cleared a little area and planted three types of seeds.  I'll call them "yellow things" (buttercups), "purple things" (bellflowers), and lupine seeds from the library.  The first two were seeds I researched and purchased on eBay during Covid.  They have not grown at all.  BUT I'm excited for the little lupines.

See the tiny specs of green in the above photo?  Lupines -- about 1.5 to 2.5" tall.

I have high hopes for this spot near the garden.  Here's the "before" picture.  LOL.

I'm linking up with Susan for Midweek Makers 340 here.

41 Items remain on the WIP list.

My WIP number remains the same.  I actually forgot that I had a Kathleen Tracy doll quilt QA in the bin to quilt that I made from pink scraps in May or so.  41 items on my list is still MUCH better than the 90's it used to be a few years back.  I'm whittling away at this list for sure.

So sorry Owen's surgery got cancelled at the last second. Hard to turn on a dime and keep positive. Love the little lupines. They are magnificent when they bloom.

I hope Owen wasn't having current issues with his tonsils meaning that they were swollen and infected so he couldn't eat and was running a fever. It is like you can't count on having an appointment anymore! With my suggestion I did make you more work, but having a finished baby quilt in the stash may come in handy!

I love your quilting on that little doll quilt. It sets if off so nicely.
