WIP Wednesday 09/03/2014

WIP Wednesday has arrived again.  I can barely believe it is September already.  My boys begin their senior and freshman years of high school today.  Time certainly does fly!

This week, I finished Barbara's name on my Winter/Christmas Wall Quilt.

I am very thankful Sharon B. of pintangle.com provides WIP Wednesday - which is pretty much a support group - to motivate us to complete our larger projects.  After taking 3 whole days off stitching this week to enjoy some vacation days with my family, I did not make a lot of progress.  However, every little bit is that much less I still need to do.

To see what others have accomplished this week, check out the comments in this week's WIP Wednesday post on pintangle.com.

As for my incredibly long lists of short and long term goals - here is my update.  (I completed one item and added another, so it is about the same.)

Thank you! I am hoping to shrink the goal lists down significantly by the end of the month. I have not had much time to stitch, so we will see how that goes!
