WIP Wednesday

Have you ever noticed how quickly the weeks fly by these days or is it just me , seems like I just posted WIP and here it is Wed. again. So what have I been up to this week , well not a lot really , I already posted some finishes I had last week and because of my busy weekend not much stitching of any kind got done , BUT yesterday at the church we finished my quilt Louisa ,oh Happy Day ! It turned out lovely and now I have to add the binding and the label but for now I will share a peak , I just trimmed off the extra batting and fabric so it is already to bind and the binding is cut just need to get busy and do it :-)
 This quilt was a kit by Moda that my dear Hubby bought for me a few years back , we won't try to figure out exactly how many that might be depressing but at least now it is getting much closer to a finish and I really love it.
 The other thing I have in the works , not that I needed anything else to keep me occupied , is a little landscape challenge with a yahoo group I am a member of , I have to use part of the fabric below for the sky or water or both and I must use colored pencils to enhance or change the colors . I love doing landscapes as you might already know so when this challenge was announced I just could not resist and the fabric arrived a week or so ago and so far that is as far as I have gotten , I do have a plan in my head so perhaps that counts but the deadline is getting closer so I am going to start this like now . Watch for updates ;-0
 I have other works in progress but for now this is my report for this week , I am linking up to Monika at the Needle and Thread Network and if you are a Canadian quilter , weaver , artist or whatever craft be sure to link up as well . Enjoy your day , I have to go make a Christmas ornament for the meeting tonight  :-)
Thanks for stopping by . Hugs Sheila
