WIP Wednesday: Happy Place

Well, it's Wednesday, but I don't have a lot to report this week. I spent the bulk of the week at Disney World with my family, so sewing was minimal.

But we did do a little of this ....

... and this ....

... and this!

So I'm not complaining. : )

And check out the box full of awesome that was waiting for me when we got home:

This would be one (yes, only one!) of my prizes for taking third place in the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild's EZ Dresden Challenge. It was on my doorstep when I arrived home from the airport—not a bad way to be welcomed home! I should be able to finish a few WIPs with this haul, don't you think? Thank you to the SLMQG and all the challenge sponsors, especially Simplicity and Gutermann!

And if you just can't get enough of the master photography shown above, follow me (freshlypieced) on Instagram—there's plenty more where those came from. : )

If you got more done than me this week, how about linking up? Here are the rules:
1. Link up any post from the past week that features at least one unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here to my blog. (Or grab my WIP Wednesday button for your sidebar.)
3. Comment on at least a few of the other WIP Wednesday links. Because what fun is a linky party without comments?

Have a happy week!

  12. Yay for Disney! Looks like you had a great time and that ice cream sandwich is crazy...can only imagine the mess mine would make with it ;-)

  13. I LOVE disney world. I hope you guys had a fabulous time, and awesomesauce on your thread!

    Off I go to check out posts in the linky.

  16. Holy moly - all that thread... pure and utter heaven I say!!!

  17. Glad to see you making memories with the family. I'm sure you'll put all that thread to great use--what fun to see that on the doorstep when you know what awaits you: Mt. Laundry, tired family and back to the cooking!


  18. Your Disney vacation looks so fun. I'm coveting your prize... congrats!

  19. Fun week, and fab prize too, you'll never be out of a colour again!

  20. You deserve that prize, your quilt was FAB! How do you join the SLMQG? I emailed someone a couple months ago and never got a response. Can I just show up to a meeting, or what?

  21. Oh my! We were at Disney World a couple weeks ago, and did the same things you did. Crowded and tiring, isn't it? So glad you could take your children there.

  22. Doh! I just realized I used the wrong link in my link up. I linked another post instead of my WiP post. I'm sorry! Forgive me? I love Disney SO MUCH. I'm kind of a freak about it. We had our honeymoon, first anniversary and fourth anniversary/son's first birthday there. Honestly, the place makes me cry actual tears of joy. I can't help it.

  23. what fun you'll have trying out those threads!

  24. When some one searches for his required thing, therefore he/she
    wishes to be available that in detail, thus that thing is maintained over here.
    My blog post ... buy cigarettes online

  25. Hmmm... what are the chances I could get home to a colorful gift such as yours? Congrats!!!

  26. Appreciate the recommendation. Let me try it out.

  27. I sewed for four hours today trying to get my entry ready in time too! But for some reason I thought that Thursday was the 30th! You gave me one more day! :) Good luck!

    (mine isn't turning out how quite how I imagined -- the fabric is crazy busy -- I guess that is why one should finish/start before the deadlines, eh?)

    Good luck!


I love comments and read every one of them! : )
