WIP Wednesday 8.17.22

Today is the first day of the 2022-23 school year.  Our son is a freshman this year.  He hasn't attended school physically since 3.13.2020.  It could be a culture shock situation.  I hope he has a great year.  It's time to sew.

I finished putting together the kite blocks that I started several years ago.  I added a round of orange and pink squares to make this quilt a more usable size.  That was a great idea suggested by my bloggy friend, Patty.

Speaking of my friend, Patty, she was also the inspiration behind helping me find a place to use some of my grandma's buttons on these littles.  I am happy to wipe two little projects off my long list.

GO! ABCs is on the longarm.  It is more than half way quilted.

I started a new stitch along.  Melissa is always an inspiration to me when it comes to fun decorating and cross stitching.  She sharing her design for a Mystery Autumn Stam SAL on her blog at Pinker n Punkin Quilting & Stitching.

I grabbed a piece of Aida cloth and some random floss that I hope works out color wise and started stitching.  This will be the project in my sew-to-go bag.  There will be sub jobs, bus stop waiting, and the like very soon.

Each Sunday I try to get an item on my WIP list further along.  I continue to work on that project until it is  at least at the finished flimsy stage -- or ideally the finished quilt stage.  I made progress on Random Ohio Stars (a Bonnie Hunter design) by making three more Ohio Star blocks.

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

I'm also linking up for the first time at Leeet's Patchworkpaarty.

You are very wise to have a to go hand work project in a bag. You definitely will have lots of wait time with a child in school. I hope all goes well for him and he stays healthy this school year. Happy stitching!

It is hard to go back to a situation like school when you have been gone so long. I certainly pray that the students do not give Owen a hard time. Sometimes by high school they have grown up some compared to middle school. I hope there are things he can get involved in and find his place.

It feel so good to have a hand sewing project prepped and ready to go! I love Melisa's projects, too--she's so generous!

BTW, did you comment on my blog as "Unknown"? If so thank you!!! I'm sorry I don't have you email address to reply directly. If not, okay, too!!! It might be another Kathy S.??!
