WIP Wednesday on Thursday

Whoops, I planned to post this yesterday, but the whole 11 hour work day thing got to me. It's been a crazy couple of first days but I realized how much I missed working with kids!! I'm lucky to work with PreK through high school now, almost every day, because my aide duties involve Prek, K, and 1-4 at dismissal, and tutoring is usually middle and high school students. But, I'm exhausted! Anyway, moving on to the little quilting activity there's been this week so far:

Making a SURPRISE quilt for a retired schoolteacher... more to come soon! But... WORD QUILTING! Thanks to recent inspiration/encouragement by my lovely friend Sarah. :)

This weekend (my weekend starts tomorrow because I only have one job to attend!), I have a lot of guild business to work on because our meeting is next week - AND I plan to finish quilting this thing before that. Maybe then I can hand-sew binding (I can't wait to show you what I picked for that) and finish the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Think I can get there? I think I can... I think I can.

Linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday @ My Quilt Infatuation!
And, since this is my September goal, linking up to A Lovely Year of Finishes.


  1. Love the surprise quilt. What a great idea to put the little hand written notes. Hope the school year is going well so far!

  2. What a sweet quilt! I like word quilting, but pretty much had to relearn most of my cursive, haha.

  3. its lovely Jess - a really special present :-)

  4. Is good to be busy at work but I hope you settle in to a routine soon and are not so exhausted!

  5. That's such a great keepsake for her. You're so sweet to do this, Jess!

    Thank you so much for sharing this at Needle and Thread Thursday!
