WIP Wednesday 08/13/14

This week, I began embroidering the front of my Winter/Christmas Wall Quilt. (Click on any photo for a larger view.

Work in Progress (WIP) Wednesday is a support group for those of us working on (or meaning to work on) stitching projects.  To learn more, check out the WIP Wednesday FAQ's at pintangle.com.  Check out this post to see what Sharon B. has been up to this week, and be sure to check out the links in the comments to see what others have been up to - I find some pretty lovely eye candy there every week!





Now, to take a peek at my goals... (I really need to stop adding to them - lol! One list went down by one, but the other went up by one...)  I am planning to paint the bathroom as a surprise for my hubby.  I thought I would have the perfect opportunity last week, but that fell through.  Maybe this week, but his schedule just changed again.  We'll see!
