WIP Wednesday 2.29.2012

Hello again, friends! 

Before we start this WIP Wednesday post, let me show you something exciting!

Snow day

WE GOT SNOW!!  Normally I wouldn’t be so excited about snow, but it has been a mostly snow-less winter here in my part of Minnesota.  Major disappointment!  Last night during dinner, it started to rain, then it quickly turned into sleet.  By the time we went to bed, we had maybe 1 inch of snow.  This morning I was awoken by the phone ringing with a recorded message from the school district saying that school was cancelled!  When I went outside to feed the cat, I had to put boots on!  (This is shocking because all winter my kids have been feeding the cat in their bare feet or socks & hanging out with him on the front step & beyond.) We probably got a good 6 inches of snow & it is still coming down!!  I called my husband so he could explain how to use the snow-blower & I cleared the driveway!  I usually just shovel, but this snow is HEAVY!  I wasn’t sure my husband would even be able to get in the driveway when he got home, so I figured I better just bite the bullet.  It was actually pretty fun!  Anyway, I will be enjoying this snow day playing games with the kids & hopefully doing a little sewing!  What are you going to do?

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

(Let me apologize for the radio silence for the last 2 weeks…Sorry!  Life kind of got busy & I made the decision to live my life & enjoy it, instead of stressing about getting a blog post written.  That’s okay, right?! 🙂 )

I have almost nothing to show for my long break.  But by showing you all almost nothing, I am hoping I get motivated to accomplish something to show you next week!



Webelos Patch – Yeah, I know, totally boring… I got W’s Webelos patch sewed onto his Cub Scout uniform.  He’s only had it since December…


In Progress:


January Quilt for do. Good Stitches –  Last time I talked about this quilt I said,  “I am hoping to make big progress on all of that, this week.”  …

I made a little progress, but no BIG progress.  I’m trimming the star points & the next step is putting all 20 – 4″ blocks together!  So, I am close!  I find trimming to be mind-numbingly boring, so I set up a little lap table to cut on while I watch TV.  As long as I don’t get distracted & cut wrong, it works pretty well!  My goal is to finish this quilt by March 15th.  (There, I said it, so now I have to do it, right?)

Cut-Loose Quilt

  1. It is totally fine that you took a break!! (I just worry…it is my nature 🙂

    The snow is amazing…my kids are off today too and I’m working from home to avoid trying to commute.

    Happy Snow Day!
