WAYWO: Bobbin work notebook cover

by winifred3

What Are You Working On? is for all things hand-made, home-made, and creative in a variety of mediums.
I spent last Thursday and Friday at the Sewing and Quilting Expo in Schaumburg, IL.  I took three classes: Bobbin work, specialty needles techniques and quilt applique using two types of fusible fabric.  Follow me below the orange squiggle for more discussion on Bobbin Work.

Several weeks ago there was a DK Quilt Diary that asked how many projects do you have unfinished.  I posted that I had 3 unfinished quilting projects and was working on all three. Then, one afternoon, I cleaned up a bit in my quilting area. Finding several more projects that I had started and put aside for more urgent, deadline oriented projects: VA Quilts, Warmth for Vets, Hats & Scarves for an Orphanage, Baby Quilts, etc. All of these took priority. They all had a deadline. I looked at the pile of projects, mostly fiber oriented (but writing as well) and contemplated the concept of where do we find time to work on projects that have no deadline.

Below is a lap quilt for us that I finally finished after two years.

WAYWO: Open Thread

by winifred3

Sorry I just got back from eight days of vacation and have a miserable cold, so this will end up an open thread.  I will stay around and host as I drink lemon tea.  I read Chun Yang's excellent diary from last week when I got back.  Sorry I missed commenting on how good and informative it was at the time.  Very expensive Internet access.

Welcome to WAYWO - What Are You Working On? This is a place to share all things creative, whether it be knit or crochet, spinning or weaving, sewing or writing, woodwork or blacksmithing. Please join us and share your projects!
As far as what is going on here, NormAl, the hubby, is cleaning out the "overflow" pantry and I am considering which quilt project to get back to first.  Starting tomorrow, not today.  I may get some knitting done tonight while I host.

So what has everyone been up to?
