WIP Wednesday

I tend to plan things, but never really get them done lol.  Life gets in the way, or I get distracted by some other project.  I was supposed to go to North Dakota this week where I was going to get a lot done on my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt.  Neither of those things happened.  My trip (and my progress) is rescheduled for later this month.

The only WIP I have to report this week is this:

It's a wall hanging that I measured out for a specific place on my wall (that's why it's long and skinny).  I love these fabrics!   I'm going to use it to practice quilting with my machine, which I've never attempted before.  I'm just going to do straight lines either horizontally or vertically, I haven't decided yet.

I did get some decorating done, the lights are up on the house and the trees are both up and lit, they are just waiting for ornaments.

Hope everyone had a more productive week than I did!

Good luck quilting your wall hanging. I am a newbie to quilting as well, so I know the first project can be intimidating, but I know you'll do great! Your house looks so beautiful!

Good luck quilting! It's not as hard as it seems! You're way ahead of us as far as a tree goes... Gorgeous wall hanging!

Your decorating looks great, and that's quite an accomplishment to get the house all decorated, I can vouch for that. : ) The wall hanging is so pretty and modern and wintery, I love it.

Thanks for linking up with WIP Wednesday! Have a productive week!

I think the Wall Hanging is beautiful. And your house looks so pretty. We haven't had any snow yet (in St. Louis) but possibly this weekend.
