We made it and everyone is still in one piece!!! Actually, the trip went very smoothly. The airports were great, so many kind people offered help, and the kids behaved way beyond what I expected.  I might even go as far to say that they were pretty close to little angles. (minus one or two incidents :)

So thank you for all your well wishes, and good luck's.  They were so appreciated and apparently they worked as well :) 

Wishing you all a Happy Quilting Day from my new home in Utah!!!

Teachers Gifts - Check

*** NOTE - If you are looking for the Fat Quarter Shop Sponsor Giveaway of Pat Bravo Nature Elements Fat Quarter Bundle you will find it by clicking here :)

Teacher's gifts are done.  I was reminded of how difficult it can be to let your children do the project while you just "help".  I always want to just take over so that I know it will be finished to my standard.  I have to keep telling myself to let go because it means more for them to do it than for it to look perfect.  Ah, good times :)

In the end, with some "help" from mom, I think they turned out really good and I hope their teacher's just love them :)  I especially love the pictures the kids did :)

WIP Wednesday - The last South Bend Edition :)

*** NOTE - If you are looking for the Fat Quarter Shop Sponsor Giveaway of Pat Bravo Nature Elements Fat Quarter Bundle you will find it by clicking here :)

I am happy to say, that I am "on schedule" for my WIP to be completed in South Bend.  (Which is good as I am moving this weekend :)  I have been going crazy gang busters to get everything squared away so I am pretty excited to have it all almost all done :)

After 7-8ish hours of quilting yesterday, I can say I am almost done with this project.  Ya, I am showing the back as I can't show the front yet :)  All that is left is to bind it (today's project) and then it moves from WIP to Completed, Yippee Skippee!!!

I went for a flower, leaf, and swirl pattern.  I did it in a rather small size, especially compared to the size of the quilt :)  (75 x 75).  So ya, my shoulders are a little sore this morning :)

Yesterday we got about half way finished with Teacher's gifts :)  We plan to finish them when the kids get home from school and hopefully I will be able post the completions tomorrow.  

And that is it for the South Bend WIP!!!!   Yippee Skippee!!!  

So now, it's on to thinking about Cedar City WIP's - I won't have my sewing machine for a few weeks as it will be on the moving truck (this very well might kill me :)  So my first WIP will be to get my new sewing room painted and ready to welcome all of its lovely fabric goodness home.  This is the color I choose, What do you think??
