WIP Wednesday

It's been a roller coaster week for me with several highs surrounding a major quilting low that I'm not ready to blog about yet.

What's Finished:

Last week I participated in my first blog hop - Stitch Me Up Embroidery - and finished a nagging UFO - Christmas Stockings 2,3 & 4 - which were major highs!  

I had so many wonderful comments about Woman in Red. I'm not one to work without a pattern so when it came time to frame her in the pillow (at the 11th hour of course!) I was stressing. Luckily these fabrics from my stash "told" me what to do and I sketched it out, recalculated umpteen times to make sure my math was right and got busy. The results were better than I'd expected and what a great feeling that is!
Speaking of great feelings... finally finishing a UFO that I've picked up, sewed a bit, put down WAY too many times feels fantastic! This was one of those "Dark Cloud" projects that just hangs over you. I hope that changing my focus to one UFO a week this month will help prevent this.
What's Hot!:
  • Green Crossroads blocks for RSC13 that I'll blog about on Saturday.
  • My UFO for the week is Bright Blue Strings and I'll be quilting it today.
  • April Showers Blog Hop projects (my day is May 9th!).
  • 3 new projects I blogged about yesterday. Here's a peak at 2 of them.

What's Not:

NOTHING!! I'm giving myself full permission just to focus on What's Hot! and banish a Really Dark Cloud from my quilting room for now. I'll give you the quilty low down once things are settled with my LAQ.

  1. Your red lady is stunning! And the framing is perfect :)

    I hope your dark cloud drifts away quickly.

  2. Ooo, that sounds scary. Dark cloud be gone!
