WIP Wednesday {11.14.12}

Is it really Wednesday already??  Amazing how that keeps happening....I am still trucking along with my feathers. I should finish them today, so by next week I hope to have a basted quilt ready to be dealt with after the holiday travels. Other than that, not too much to report. I am hoping that once the feathers are done things will start to move more quickly and I can get out of panic mode.  I have nothing completed and nothing new so....

Still Going:


Only 10 more to go!! I should finish them up today and then figure out the layout, and put together a quilt top. I really want this together and basted before we leave next week so that when we get back it is just quilt and bind.

husbands gift
I need to sneak in some time to work on this. Soon would be good. 

napkins (round 2)

This is just sitting around staring at me, begging to be made. The wedding is in a month so I am hoping to get them done {again} and mailed in the next couple of weeks. 


I am almost 2/3 done! I love this so, so much and I'm going to have a really hard time giving it away. 

lilly belle
Yep, still need a back and some batting before I can do anything with this, and then I'll need hand quilting supplies. So maybe one of these days I will get around to it. 


*wedding quilt -I think I know what I am going to do. But it might have to wait until I knock out some gifts....
*wedding quilt II- I know exactly what I am going to do, I just need to find out what colors would be preferred.
*baby quilt - still an idea just waiting for me to come play. Once I find the perfect fabric I will be on my way. Someday....

Man, there is so much to do and just no time to do it at the moment. I am starting to look forward to planning out what I want to do in the new year. I can't believe it is getting to be that time already. But one thing at a time. First feathers, then everything else. By next week I really hope to have at least figured everything out for my parents gifts and hopefully started some prepping on that and the napkins. I just keep telling myself that there is a deadline and an end in sight for all the insanity. It will be replaced with other insanity {like moving} but that is not the point. The point is many many car hours of hand work :)
