WIP Wednesday: Earth Mother Quilt and an Apartment

Happy summer! It's actually been unseasonably cool here, but I'm really ok with that, because I know we'll get weeks and weeks of 95+ degree weather at some point, and frankly, I hate sweating and like saving money on air conditioning, so summer can just take its sweet time as far as I'm concerned!

Here's what I've been busy with:

Drove it all by myself for 1200+ miles. Good training for my future truck driving career.

Biggest takeaway? I have way, way, way too much stuff.

This is my real WIP lately.


My great mother came out a day after she finished teaching for the semester and helped me move back. So I owe her big time! Don't worry though, she's going to cash in on it. She's moving this summer too. From a house she and my dad bought in 1979. So that should be fun. :)

We had time for one quick sightseeing stop on the way. 

Incredibly, I also managed to finish a quilt top before I left New York. I wanted to get it done so I could photograph it with some lush greenery and pretty waterfalls, but true to form, I finished it, then failed to get any photos of it in gorgeous natural surroundings. So instead, it is photographed in my living room. Quality lives here, folks.

You may remember this quilt is for a friend who got married. Last September.

Sadly, the new place seems to be infested with a vug under the rug:

Linking up with WIP Wednesday!

Pin It


  1. Your quilt looks great even with the mug-vug! Hope you enjoy your new home :)

  2. I would have been sooo nervous about driving that truck! And moving, ugh. We just did it in November - and I want to think it will be a long long time before I do it again!

    Love your quilt! Is it for anyone? Or for yourself? :)

  3. We moved last summer. Not fun. I hate it! ;D Looks like your apartment gets some nice light. And that quilt is super lovely. :D

  4. Your quilt top is beautiful! The greens and browns look so nice together. Good luck with the unpacking and with moving your mother to her new home! I hope my mom never moves. She has four kids worth of stuff stockpiled in her garage LOL!
