W.I.P. Wednesday

Oh, I'm really excited about what I've been working on in the evening this week!  It's a ...wait for it....UFO! Gasp! Yep, I dug one out and started on finishing it.  It's a top I designed about 3-4 years ago and it's only been pin basted for about well, a year now.  Hand quilting the previous little quilt got me in the mood to do some more hand quilting and that was always the plan for this quilt anyways.  Want to see it!! Okay, here's a peek..
This is henri.  Henri's a farmer, doesn't say much, hard worker though...:)
There's a whole story behind henri and this quilt but I won't share that until I have the whole quilt completed lol!  One thing I will say....henri is the only guy on the quilt :)

I titled this post WIP (work in progress) but then called it a UFO.  What do you think....at what point does a WIP become a UFO?  How long does a project sit waiting until it officially moves from one category to the other?  Or should we just call them "wip'ed ufo's" lol!

I have to say a very huge heartfelt "WOW AND THANK YOU!!!!!"  to everyone who has shown so much love and kindness in offering to participate in Sunshine Squishies.  The stories and reasons why you want to do this with me have touched my heart and reminded me that all of us need each other more than we know.  This has been a truly tearful experience for me to see the power of friendship and love at work.  Romans 13:9...b. "you shall love your neighbour as thyself".  

Happy Stitching and God Bless!
