Wonderful Wednesday - Lemonade

Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  Would you believe that Sew/Craft Friends-zy was canceled this month?  At the last minute, no less!  :o((

What's a quilter to do???
I don't know what YOU would have done, but I decided to make lemonade!!  Well, what I mean is that I still needed a Sew Day.  Needleb and I had been looking forward to the trip to Raleigh.  Knittingsuek was even planning to attend!


Something else came up at the last minute.  Tiffany was out of town.  Denise accidentally made other plans and Lois had her grandkids for the day.  When Lisa ended up deciding not to attend, that's when we opted for Plan B.

How did that work out, Joyful???

Fairly well, thanks!  After weighing the options, Needleb decided to come sew at my house. That's how I ended up dragging half my studio downstairs for the day.  Well, maybe not really half.  It was more like a quarter of the room.  :P

But, you know what???

It was SEW worth it to have Needleb here!  We both made lots of good progress and thoroughly enjoy each other's company:

First, we worked on donation projects for Lutheran World Relief...

A new quilt top (which will be revealed on Sundayfor her:

And binding a quilt (revealed this past Sunday) for me:


We each made progress on the Quilt Swap that we are doing:

Since her donation project was more involved...

I was also able to make progress on a UFO:

You'll have to come back Friday to find out more about that, though.  Trust me!  It will be worth the wait.

Until next time...
Be SEW flexible!!!


  1. What fun to have a “play date “! I’m intrigued by those geese in a row!

  2. How nice to be back on your blog NOT wearing a mask, hehe. Thanks again for a WONDERFUL (and super productive) day!

  3. Sounds like you had a great time together! Love those flying geese....

  4. Sounds like so much fun. My retreat buddy and I have been talking about doing something like this for some time now. Maybe this will help me actually make it happen! :)

  5. It's always great to have a sewing day with a friend. Looks like progress was made on many projects. Looking forward to seeing more. ;^)

  6. It's great to be able to finally get together for sew days. We've had two and a weekend retreat. Much laughter and catching up.

  7. Great jobs to both of you! When quilters get together, things start to roll! Glad you turned your "lemons" into "lemonade"!

  8. I am loving that blue gray quilt in the works. You smile is infectious :-)

  9. Glad you made lemonade - looks like fun! I'm loving the look of your UFO.

  10. You made some great progress -- lemonade can be a great result of a sour situation!
