Works in progress

I've been working on my hand pieced trip around the world, slowly but steadily. I have half of the 12th round finished and the next 3 rows are planned out (pink, turquoise, red dot). It's a good project to do while watching Netflix and fun to see it grow, even though it's slower now.

And I'm back to working on my rhino quilt again. I put it away a few weeks ago with the rhino hand basted to the background. Yesterday and today I machine stitched it in place and started removing the red basting threads (the edges of the rhino were also hand basted under, before stitching it to the background.)

Other than that, I've been busy getting the kids into school and getting all settled in with our routines. I need to go buy another compass for high school geometry and somebody needs new shoes this week, too. I went to high school curriculum night last week, and get to go tonight and tomorrow to hear what to expect this year from the elementary teachers. 

Hope you're having a good September!

Hi Vicki, I love of the projects that you've showed in this post. Got to say as a mother of adult children I'm impressed with all that you :o) Most important things first ;0) Now with the Trip Around the World quilt, is that hand stitched? Its looking great! Loving the color combo. Sarah

I love your site! I can't wait to get new ideas from you.

My favorite handmade gifts are anything my kids make me. I have them all over the house.
