No Progress for WIP Wednesday

This week is kicking my butt. 


At this very moment we are mid snow storm/white out --- ugg!  

and Mr. Happy is shopping for snow chains for the car....

It's a good thing I bought a daylight bulb in November.  I have surrounded myself with plants, fake daylight, fabric, and soft fuzzy things (a.k.a. the dog) and the combo has been able to beat off the winter blahs up to the this point, but I need more uummpf as my Grandma would have said.  More on that in a later post!





Ongoing Projects - Let's talk progress quilting-wise. 


Confetti
I did take a few steps forward which I posted about yesterday here.
X Marks the Spot
No progress.  Shuffled the fabrics around again, but need to cut and haven't yet.

Tulip Runner
*cricket, cricket*

Central Park Pin Wheels
Tiny bit of progress here.  I have given in to adding a sort of background and decided the additional fabrics I pulled really will work.  So, I rearranged the pin wheels on the design board and cut a bunch of squares and am now ready for another pin wheel assembly session (not tonight... maybe this weekend).  And yes, I am really going to make you wait another week to show you.

You Can Sew-a-thon!
I really need to gather up materials for the first project (still a secret) and whip up a post to get us going, don't I?  This will also have to wait till the weekend.  Read the intro to this sewing together idea here


------------In house project related news... lots of progress there!--------------

The ceilings are getting painted... the breakfast bar wall is primed.... Mr. Happy found me the perfect shade to paint the breakfast bar wall so it stands out a bunch... and we are nearly ready to have the new counter top installed. 

Here is an updated picture of what will be the breakfast bar area.  You can see the first part of the project here.

The project has been a ton of work so far, but I love it love it love it!  At the same time it will be nice to put the house back together and make all that spackle dust scarce!!

Meanwhile, keep your chin up and keep beating off those winter blahs with the biggest stick you can find!

My week wasn't very productive either. Sigh! Good luck next week.

Yeah, the winter blahs are starting to get to me too. But the confetti quilt is looking fabulous, and so is the remodeling! Thanks for linking up this week, see you next time!

I have done NOTHING since Friday but clean and purge and rearrange my sewing studio. yikes.

Hope the snow clears out for you soon. We're supposed to get a ton of it this weekend, which only means one thing - more sewing!
