Or rather, Works in progress On Wednesday = WOW!
This is not just the last Wednesday of the year, but the last DAY of the year! Where did 2014 fly away to?! Todd and I will probably spend the evening relatively quietly, depending on what Bowl Games are on when we get home from church, and a pot of pinto beans and ham, which is already in the crock pot. Tomorrow morning, though, is our Stitcher's annual get together for a meal (breakfast at Cracker Barrel this year) and shopping the sale at Patches & Stitches, one of our LQSs. For me it will be more about the fellowship than the shopping, and that's fun stuff!
With the thought of fleeting time in mind, I've been plugging away on the Pineapple Quilt this week (remember, I've determined that I will have it finished before the end of January). I managed to assemble the middle three sections so far:
I'm working on stitching up the last seam 'cover' out of the four required. You zigzag stitch the pieces together like so:
And then the strip (which you've machine stitched on like binding, on both sides--one on the front and the other on the back) flips over and hides where you've connected them:
And that's what I'm doing right now. I'll probably finish this and prep the strips to attach the long row of blocks across the top and bottom, too. Who knows, maybe I'll have those attached and finished by the week's end?! Maybe not. LOL! One thing I do know and that's that this quilt will be pretty decent-sized. It's square, and I still have 8" borders to add to the sides. This one is going on the bed. For sure!
And the other quilty thing being worked on is my cabin!
Pegboard walls all the way around . . . and it's being painted white (by my very darling husband) as I type! Isn't that awesome?! I'll can hang every tool and ruler and template I have on its own hook! LOL!
So that's what I'm working on, what about you? Linking up with Esther's Blog today!
