WIP Wednesday......

Hurray! I have something to share with all of you and my More Quilting for Fun ring mates *VBS*This is the top I'm working on right now. The 9 patches are from 2" scrappy squares. I'm really liking the contrast.I'm ready to join up the rows *S*
Do you remember back in the summer when I bought this fabric in Hudson? I had NO idea what it would become.
And these 2 adorable squares I received as a gift from Tracey of Oz? They've been waiting for me to get inspired also. Recently Studio Christine asked in 'comments' if Ebby had a quilt of her own....no...she doesn't. She claims ALL of the quilts in the house, and the one I keep on the back of the couch changes frequently due to her sleeping on it every evening.On occasion she must have some litterbox 'leftovers'(my..didn't I put THAT nicely?), and if any smell from her b--- is on the couch back quilt, she gets down and won't lay on it. So I KNOW when I need to switch quilts and wash the offender. (I've taken to NOT putting my best quilts on the couch back any more!) I've decided, based on that comment to make Ebby a quilt of HER very own using the squares from Tracey and the Skillful Cat fabrics *VBS* A new WIP coming soon!
And last but not least, a 'kind of' sharing. Won't tell you about any more about this little 'give away' idea of mine til Friday. Gotta let the TURKEY have his day first *G* The happiest and safest of Thanksgiving to all who observe this day of blessings and gatherings. Hugs to all, Finn

Hi, I found your link again in an old comment, so I'm glad to visit your blog again,

I like al those scraps of you, Scrap quilts are the nicest ones in my opinion,

I should post pictures of my old quilts and all my unfinished tops, do you have them too? And then all those projects I have begun over the years and never finished :(

I have a lot of drawing work to do lately and sewing now is a little bit to tiring in the evening, so I crochet a lot and am now knitting a
sweater for my husband.

I wish you a lot of fun with your lovely grandchildren, and lots and lots of inspiration, How is your golden retriever?
I have a new dog now, and I enjoy him a lot, almost all my post are pictures off him, I thing people may find it boring,

bye

Hope you had a happy turkey day, Finn.

Nicnames... How about "Chick", short for Chicken Little. Then she could have her own special song that you could sing to her, I'm sure you've heard it - Chicory Chick, cha-lah, che-lah, checkalaroni in a banana, kabala kawalaka can't you see? Chicory Chick is me! In any case, she's so deserving of her own quilt :)

I'm loving that purple between your ninepatches.

The 9-patch is great. I never would have imagined how good they would look with a purple like this. Great choice!

Brilliant! What better gift could Miss Ebby have for Christmas than her very own quilt(s)? And that will save the wear and tear on your more special quilts :- )

P.S. I recognize one of the fabrics in your house block. I think I even still have some in my stash!

I've made Chloe a little quilt - it got me back into quilting after a slump. She is a nest maker, so she scrunches it up a bit, but I think she likes it.
