A Little Bit of Lime with your Latte?

Hello all! It's WIP Wednesday, and it has been awhile since I linked up!

I have been gone a bit on a vacation --Las Vegas :) --And no, I did not win-- I lost   errr.. made a donation to the economy of!  Really, I am not much of  a gambler but I was with my kid's celebrating a one of their birthdays and we had FUN! Then it was back to work and catching up. October is normally a very busy month here with many family/friends birthdays and a heavy workload at the job. More (or less) about that later! ;)

So what do you think?

As you know, I really had a hard time with these colors, but I am liking it better, now that the blocks are coming together! They come together very fast, I have been chain piecing them like crazy and hope to have the top completed by the weekend! 

Not much progress on the other items on my list (100 Day Hustle list)---here they are +1!!

1. Finish up my Flickr fabric swaps by cutting and mailing off the fabric
        a. Send Me a Text Swap--all fabric bought--just need to cut and send
        b. Almost Neutral Swap---ditto a.

2. My coin purse for the U R Priceless Blog Hop coming up in Nov-- My day is Nov 8th!!
    I have all my fabric and my frame -- ready to start! I can't wait, I just love these and hope to make a few
    for Christmas gifts

3. A lap quilt for a friend who has been diagnosed with cancer and is now facing chemo, life is short my friends you never know what the next day will bring..... Yea!! Progress here--see blocks above!

4. At least cut and hopefully piece my orange inspired Flying Free quilt, it is to be a child's quilt for donation.
    Fabric pulled and laying on the cutting table

5. My gift for my swap partner for the  Modern She Made Swap 2 ---still stalking my partner... purchased
    some fabric... and now trying to decide between two very different projects! So hard keeping  a secret
    when you want to make sure they are going to like  love it!

5. A set of hot pads for my son's girlfriend who loves a scrappy look!  No progress here....

6. I want to cut and piece the Vintage Holiday Quilt. I have all the fabric, stacked on my cutting table, but
    that is it!

7. And last but not least I want to get caught up on my Craftsy BOM'S! Poor things are sitting on my sewing table just screaming for attention!!  No more screaming at me.....just staring back at me, making me feel guilty :(

8. New Project: commissioned baby quilt for January! She is picking out her fabric now... So glad it is for January and not in 2012! Can you believe that---we are talking 2013 already!

Hope you are having a stitchy week! I will be back this weekend with an update on Little Bit of Lime with Latte quilt!  Oh! and guess who came home yesterday? Great Granny and Retro Flowers!! Yes, they are back from the longarm quilter and looking good! I am sooo happy with how Retro Flowers turned out!

Linking up with Lee over at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Gosh you are going to be busy this month, all this on top of the family celebrations! The latte and lime blocks are looking really good.

  2. Your Lime with Latte blocks are looking great! Can't wait to see them all together.

    Look forward to seeing the quilted Retro Flowers and Great Granny quilts also!

  3. Looks great! Your post caught my eye, because I'm making a very similar quilt/curtain! Mine is going to be a "binary code" quilt / curtain. Neat!


Thanks for the comment! I love hearing from you!
