WIP Wednesday

The picture I didn't have yesterday:

The pattern is "Geese Migration"
 by Cynthia Brunz who blogs at QuiltingIsMoreFunThanHousework.  The pattern and a tutorial, available through Mary Fons' Dear Quilty, can be found here.

Even with everything else I need to accomplish today, I managed to stitch a test block.

Senior grocery shopping is done; now to put everything away and vacuum-pack the meat to make room in the fridge for Thanksgiving essentials.  I'm going easy this year -- just the three of us for Turkey Day. Son-1 and family will come Friday afternoon and stay for a casual potato bar dinner.

Yesterday, a horrible crashing sound came from the Queen Mother's Suite.  As I raced in to help I found the sitter propping up the antique secretary and saw items from the secretary, including a Christmas tree and a bag of York Peppermint Patties, in bed with Mother! I'd have laughed if the sitter hadn't been in obvious need of assistance.  I guess this afternoon we'll be swapping some furniture with pieces in the storage unit.

Maybe I should title this post "Why Is It? Wednesday."

Why is it that calamities happen at the worst possible time?

Why is it that all the toilet paper rolls run out just before company comes?

Why is it the grocery is out of the key ingredient needed for the Thanksgiving menu? 

Why does the washer have an error message when there's no chance of getting a service call on a holiday?

That's my Wednesday!

Hop over to Freshly Pieced  to see what others are working on this WIP Wednesday.


  1. What great blocks! They look so addictive to make. Sorry to hear about all your "excitement", but don't forget to be thankful for all the good things in your life.

  2. Oh dear, I pray your day gets better! It does seem that so many of those types of challenges occur at the least opportune time!
    I like the name of that pattern - reminds me of childhood and seeing the geese migrate. This could easily go on my "some day" list.

  3. Oh dear! Hope your Wednesday decides to settle down and behave for you before it is over! And I'm sure Thanksgiving Thursday will be much better :-) I have that wonderful pattern on my ToDo list - love it! I'm up to my elbows in cooking today and tonight - about 25 people gathering at my mom's house in Carolina tomorrow. It's the only time of year we all get together. Happy Thanksgiving my friend!!!!

  4. What a Wednesday you've had! I sure your day has improved. I love your migrating geese block! It looks like fun. Happy Thanksgiving.

  5. Sounds like you had a Worse Wednesday this week. Hopefully everything is working out one way or the other.

  6. At least you get it all over with in one day. I love that pattern - love Flying Geese in general - and I really like the way yours is shaping up, especially the way you are working with your colours.

  7. I hope the rest of your day went better! Calamities always happen at the worst possible moment. Murphy's Law, you know. Great blocks, I'm very tempted to make some to play with. They'd be a great way to use up some batik stash....

  8. I hope your Thursday went more smoothly than your Wednesday, and that your Thanksgiving was perfect!
