W.I.P. Wednesday

I wish I had more to report for WIP Wednesday.  Really, getting our new place in order is my work in progress!  And all in all it's all slowly coming together.  If you missed the news about our move, you can read about it here.

I can show you a peek of a special paper piecing project I began before the move.  I'm sad to say that it will most likely not be completed in time for it's intended purpose.

I have most of the boxes for my sewing & craft room unpacked at this point, but what you can't see in this picture is the HUGE mess behind me!  It may be unpacked, but few things have found their place yet, lol!

And I have no chair, which kind of throws a wrench in things.
Also, my 4 bins of fabric remain in my sisters basement at the moment .
I should have them tonight or tomorrow though, and am anxiously awaiting their arrival!

 As a major plus, I have an amazing view!  I'm looking forward to the inspiration that will come in looking out this window; particularly in watching the seasons change.

Boone is having far too much fun running and playing on the property here at our new home, and has adjusted really well.

I'll leave you with one last piece of quilt-y goodness. 
Mr. Trio and I were lucky enough to recently receive a quilt that was hand made (hand pieced AND hand quilted) by his great aunt Ivy.  I'm amazed at the patience and love that went into this quilt.  Yesterday I worked a little on getting the guest room in order, and on the guest bed is where this quilt has found its new home.

  1. Congratulations on your move. Finding a place for everything is always a challenge. Great Aunt Ivy's quilt is stunning.

  2. Moving is always a challenge, but what an awesome view! And yes, totally understand your anxiety about your bins of fabric. Any quilter knows how you feel. Hope you get it back soon :)
