WIP Wednesday #14

Ok... So I didn't actually complete anything this week but I have to say I have had a GREAT WEEK!!

12:01 Saturday, November 19, 2011

My hubby got me my FIRST BRAND NEW SEWING MACHINE!!!  Isn't he just the BEST!! I am so excited!!!  So I played a lot! but didn't finish anything!

I did start a new project!  It's a quilt for the doorway at our camp that goes to the upstairs which we think will help keep the heat downstairs... but with all the knot holes in the wooden floor/ceiling it may be more of a decoration then a practical heat saver - we'll see  :)  Either way here's the first completed block.

I'm using the Hard Candy collection again with a single background fabric.

I have a bunch of the other 4-patch and 1/2 square triangles made but not together yet.  Trying to make it look 'scrappy'!  Going to put 2 blocks across by 7 down for a total of 14 place binding.  Show you more as I go along.  Didn't work on anything else this week because I've been cleaning the house and getting ready for the holiday.

I am taking a few minutes to realize how very lucky I am!!
Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving!

Congrats on a new sewing machine! I do hope someday to have a much fancier one. My husband bought mine 3 Black Friday's ago for $60 at Wal Mart. It seems to still be going strong for a cheap machine though. I'm very thankful to have it as I had been cutting and ironing at sewing club for months before actually having my own machine.
