Hello and Happy Wednesday to you!

First off, I’d like to extend and gigantic “thank you” to those of you who left such kind and thoughtful comments on my post about judged quit shows!  I decided, after feeling this nagging sense of discomfort around that post all day yesterday, to remove it from my blog.  In doing so, I lost all the comments that were made on it :-(.  So if I did not get a chance to thank you via email, I hope you will see it here.  The short version of why I removed the post is this; I simply feel like it is too personal an issue and one with too many subtleties that I find difficult to articulate in the time I have for writing blog posts (very little).  I felt it was a post that could so easily be perceived in a number of not so positive ways and it was simply making me feel uncomfortable. I am so happy and feel honored to have had my quilt recognized with an award!  I’ll just leave it at that for now!   I apologize to those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about because you did not read it yesterday, but I felt I needed to clear that up for those who may have been wondering.

Now, on to my little WIPs!!

Dreamcatcher Quilt sans binding

I finally finished the quilting lines on my Dreamcatcher Quilt.  I can’t wait to show you the whole thing, but I will wait until the binding is complete!!    I know you’ve seen this quilt now for a few weeks in a row- yawn right?  My goal is to have it finished by Friday for one last reveal!!

Miss A's scrappy HST quilt during basting

When I finally got all the basting pins out of that quilt,  I was ready to move on to basting Miss A’s Bed Quilt, which I pieced a while back using my Scrappy Strings HST method.  I love this quilt top so much and can’t wait to get it quilted.

basting time - scrappy stringsSince Miss A has been home sick this week, now on day three and feeling better, she was able to help me pin- and wanted to snap some photos!

basting

I have decided that this will be my first hand quilted (well not entirely, I’ll quilt the negative space with my walking foot- of course) quilt project.  I have been so inspired by Svetlana’s work and I found this great tutorial.  I have been wanting to hand quilt for a while now and just needed the right quilt!

more basting

I’m linking up to Lee’s WIP Wednesday.  Stop on by and have a look lots of pretties as usual.  I’m going to get back to my basting duties, I have a bit of work ahead of me as you can see!

Hope your day is full of loveliness……..
