WIP Wednesday 07/16/2014


Time certainly flies by! I am linking up with Pin Tangle again this week for Work In Progress (WIP) Wednesday. To see what other crafty folks are up to, I encourage you to check out the link above and follow the links in the comments.  You will not be disappointed.  Sharon shared some pictures and details from the hussif she is making and it is absolutely gorgeous!


I managed to stitch more than 200 x's on the Heaven and Earth Designs Freebie Santa and the Mouse I have been working on.  Last week, my husband decided to cheat and take a peek at the picture of the project.  The boys have not seen it though.  This week they were both able to guess there is a mouse and a present.  Mutt (my 14-year-old) wants me to work on the section beneath the mouse next, as he cannot guess what it is standing on. He also decided the present makes this look like it is a Christmas cross-stitch pattern.  Smart kid!

I did make a bit of progress on my CQI Winter/Christmas Wall Quilt.  However, as I only managed to pull all of the basting seams out, I decided it was not quite photo worthy.  I will have more to share on that next week.

Thanks for stopping by!

(The following lists are to help me stay motivated! I did manage to knock the size of the list down by one item...)

It's so nice to see that cute little mouse!

Extremely impressive list of "to do's". The mouse is cute - I suspect a stocking is in the making. The garden block is beautiful.
Thank you for checking my CQJP block. I appreciate the visit and comment.

Thank you, Annet! He is the a big part of the reason I picked this pattern from Heaven and Earth Designs.
