Finished Projects…

The back of the truck finally got unpacked yesterday and with that came out my other finished projects…well ‘almost’ finished projects!

This Maggie Bonanomi project is called ‘Butternut House’ and is all stitched except for where that pin is…would you believe that with three inches to go, I ran out of green thread!!  So I have to do that and then decide whether it will be a big pillow or a wall hanging for over the bed.      P1230176 P1230177 P1230178 P1230179

On the last day of travel I fished this little project out…it was a FREE pattern from Scrap, Stitch and Quilt Blog.  I got the birdhouse and leaves stitched.  Now onto the snowman and special effects, which just may have to wait until our next trip down!


I was very pleased with the projects completed while driving down and back this year!!  Remember this is dead time..normally spent back seat driving, sucking in breath, stomping on my imaginary brake, and telling my hubby how to drive!!  By stitching on projects, everyone is happy…especially hubby! 


Ooops…there is one little guy MIA!!  I wonder where I tucked him??


I guess everything in the RV hasn’t been unloaded after all!!

The hunt is on!!

Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P


  1. Lots of great wool projects that you are finishing. I have a few that I got last year, so I will start mine in the summer.


  2. You are very productive back seat driver. LOL Beautiful projects, Paulette.

  3. Great travel makes for sure! I love all of your wool work.

  4. I vote for a pillow....but then I don't get a vote, do I!

    The free design looks very good in wool. I see that and it makes me want to dive right in and make one too. But I said I was going to clean up the sewing room today.

  5. Cute, cute, cute! I love stitching on trips too. Thanks for sharing!
