On the back I wrote Holiday case you can't read my

I chose to make a pillow form, and an envelope back for the pillow...
|And instead of a flang around the pillow front...I just added it as a border; as you could see in the first picture.
Each blog hop that I have joined has been a sheer delight with our Madame Samm....cheers to you girl! Thank you to Pauline and Jill also for making it so much fun.

WIP Wednesday

Seems like I'm never prepared lately....the week is gone again!  This week I have my Sew Intertwined quilt in the frames and hand quilting it.  It is moving along slowly because I had company all weekend.  Husband was working on a new wood shed; our sons were all around helping.  So; that meant wives and children here quite a bit too.  But it was nice to have them with us.  On with the WIPs:   Sew Intertwined:  I am in past the borders with the hand quilting.....

So; this is it before it hit the frames....

Besides this quilt; I have the Holiday Lane Pillow ready for the blog hop....and have started the Bluenose quilt.  This is a commissioned quilt.  Will have pictures later on for that one; I hope.
RTQAL top is as it was last week....waiting.

I am linking up to Freshly Pieced and Monika ...take a look for yourself.

WIP Wednesday

Hey folks!!  It is feeling more and more like winter here.  No snow; the sun shines and it fools you into thinking it is lovely out; which it is. But much cooler than it was a week ago!!  Oh well; it is that time of the year, right? Only going to get I'll stop whining about it.  And you know; it means more sewing time anyway....yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WIPs have rolled so very quickly:  This week I have a finish as well as works in progress to show you....The fan I hand quilted for a lady is finished:

I added a bit of a border to my RTQA top:  still debating whether or not to add another. I would prefer it bigger,,,but?????

I am ready for the 'Holiday Lane Pillow' blog hop too.... a tiny peek for you.

Well; that is it for me this week....I have a commissioned quilt I have to get started right away...
I'll update on that as I go along.  I will be linking up to Freshly Pieced  and The Needle and Thread         please join us and see all the wonderful WIPs for this week.
