WIP Wednesday: Out of Here


I didn’t do as much sewing as I had hoped this week. It was a busy weekend full of kids’ activities, watching basketball, and playing outside in the beautiful weather. I mean, who can sew when it’s 80 degrees in Wisconsin in March?? It’s hard to shake the feeling that there will be a blizzard next week. Gotta enjoy this while it lasts. : )And this week isn’t likely to be much more productive—the hubs and I are off on a last-minute getaway to Phoenix, to see even more basketball! Our two favorite teams (his alma mater and mine) are not only both in the Sweet 16, they’re in the same bracket. What are the odds? We decided this was the perfect year to see the madness in person—and get a little kid-free time in the bargain. And it’s all thanks to my wonderful dad, who agreed to drop everything and come stay here with the girls while we’re gone. Thank you, Dad!

Completed projects:

AnneMarie’s baby quilt. Blogged here.

New projects:

Scrappy Triangles quilt. I’m finally cutting into my stack of Going Coastal! I’ve had a plan for this stack for ages. It’s so nice that I’m finally getting to it.


New York Beauty QA quilt. I finished my second Easter egg of a block and am looking forward to tackling the third. But once again this block isn’t lying as flat as I would like. I need to work on ways to make my curved piecing more exact. Click here for more info about this fun quilt-along.

    My daughter, who is visiting from Phoenix, said it hit the 90s last week (in terms of temperature). You'll go from from one warm spot to another! Have a great time on your getaway.

    Your NYBeauty block is a beauty. I think something like that would take me ALL week, but you did that AND finished a quilt. Thanks for hosting us here again. I appreciate it!

    It's been ages since I linked up – thank you so much for continuing the link. 🙂 Hope you've had a wonderful time on your trip to AZ. Same bracket? Wow. My brother's took a trip to Portland, OR to enjoy the games there but sadly watched our team lose. Love the NY Beauty…stunning!
