WIP Wednesday

Wednesdays seem to roll around so fast these days and here it is the middle of Feb. already , I mean where does the time go ,it seems to whiz by for sure. So what have I been up to , well many things but not making much progress on too much of anything . I guess I will show you my progress on my 10th anniversary challenge for our quilt guild , my ten will be ten spools and this will eventually be a banner for my sewing room .Haven't decided on a border yet just have been too busy the past few days to think about it but here it is so far.
 The spools have been sewn together but the lettering has not been appliqued down nor is it attached yet to the spools but this will give you an idea of my plan at least .
Other than that I am hand quilting the small project I gave the sneak peak of but time has not allowed me to finish that either which is sad as it is only small , hopefully that will be completed real soon.
 I am linking up today to the Needle and Thread Network so why not head on over and check to see what others have been up to this week. I am off now to prepare for our guild meeting tonight .
 Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day .
 hugs Sheila

  2. I really like the spools Sheila. I haven't had much time to sew at all lately. Maybe this afternoon. (I say that every day). I just wish time didn't go so fast.
