WIP Wednesday

Well; here we are again...I missed last week/ not because I wasn't busy, but I didn't feel there was enough progress and didn't want you bored with the same items.

I am writing this on Tuesday evening and it is raining like crazy here.  We really need it, but ok  Anyway; to my works in progress folks!!

This week I have finished hand quilting this one....I never did get the name of it, but it is pieced with tiny little pieces; similar to a Dear Jane block.

This one took a little longer than most quilts do; but well worth it. Cindy does a great job with her piecing and I enjoy working on her quilts.

I have 'Swoon #5' pieced for the QAL with Sara at Fairy Face Designs...

Also have the 3rd block for the 'Road Trip QAL' with Em at Sewing By Moonlight

Besides these items, I am just about ready for the 'Ho Ho Ho blog hop', you have to wait for those pics though.
I have signed up for the hexie hop and the pin cushion hop; I know!!!!  lol. I can't resist them.
As you probably remember; I have several quilt tops waiting to be hand quilted. 2 for customers and 3 or 4 of my own, plus I have a new one in the frames that I forgot to take a picture sorry.  Maybe next week we'll see that one. It is a customer's quilt and it is stunning!!

I am linking up with Monika and Lee for WIP Wednesday. I am also linking up to Fiber of all Sorts
for the July Finishes Party. Take a look at the goals that have been met this month.

Goals for July

Can't believe we are here already.....where has my time gone?  It is time for me to make my July goals...I am working on so many projects right now that my head spins most of the

So; that said, I am making one goal for July...that is to hopefully finish hand quilting this quilt I just started.  It is very similar to Dear Jane as far as the tiny pieces and the amount of them...lots of quilting to be done.  But it is pieces very very nicely by a friend. I feel if I can manage to finish this by the end of this month; I will be doing just wonderfully.  Fingers are crossed......linking up to   ..enjoy the linky party.

Here's the quilt I am working on for this goal...this is a small section of it.

Canada Day!!!!

Happy Canada Day to all of my Canadian blogging friends!!!!!  It hasn't rained here yet today...yay!!! I even saw the sun for about 3 minutes right after lunch....there is hope!!   lol

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.
