W.I.P Wednesday

It has been a very slow week for me; as sewing goes. My aunt passed was busy with funeral and etc.  But I do have a little tiny bit of sewing I can show is what I am going to add to the top and bottom of the quilt top in progress; I want to make it longer; not square..not much to see; but all I have for now ladies...

I haven't seen any other postings this morning; not sure why.I probably missed something with everything going on this week; but have a look at Freshly Pieced and see how things are going with Lee....Have a Merry Christmas everyone...
