Work-in-progress

I'm linking up with "Freshly Pieced" work in progress Wednesday today, where she asks of to post about our own "WIP"'s.

I'm afraid I have SO many of these that it'd be down right boring to list them all. My most exciting / special quilty WIP is something that is going to be a surprise, and the recipient reads my blog, so this is all I can share.... LOL Yep, the dog ears and thread on the floor. I'll hopefully be able to share a picture soon.
My quilt along quilts are at a standstill, and they, along with others will be Christmas presents. But these are my most important WIP's... My kidos. I normally don't like to post pictures of them on the internet. They're now in the "tween" stage, so I thought it'd be fun to post a picture of them when they were still in that so-adorable-that-you-forget-how-difficult-they-can-be stage...

They're off from school this week, so I may not get much progress done on the sewing front, but on the kid/family front, we'll try to do some fun things. BUT, I just bought them both their very own copy of "Dairy of a Wimpy Kid, The Ugly Truth" that just made it's first appearance at the kids' Scholastic Book Sale that was going on at one of their schools today. We visited after attending parent teacher conferences. It was at these conferences that we learned of some... ahem, school work in progress that needs to be done over the "break". But right now my house is quiet, as they're both READING! I LOVE this series! IT GETS MY BOYS TO READ!!! So I'd better go now before they finish the books!!!

I just bought the same book yesterday for my son after our parent/teacher conference. His reward for being such a great kid! Can't wait to see what your working on.

My son is currently reading those too! I need to read them and see what he likes about them.

Good luck with your surprise WIP!

Ah, I bet our children are about the same ages. My youngest LOVES the Wimpy Kid books too. I thought I had ordered it from Amazon...but it did not arrive yesterday. Guess I'll have to find my Borders coupon and get to the store tomorrow. Glad your house is quiet - mine people have just rediscovered Guitar Hero!

LOL Susan! From the comments, we should all start a book club for them! Of course, they'd probably rather play video games or play with legos. My oldest son read through the book in about an hour and a half :-O. The youngest put it aside to finish tomorrow. But I got some sewing done! Hope to do more tomorrow, but I promised them I'd make roll out cookies, so we'll see.....

You sure have 2 handsome young men on your hands. :)

My little 18 month old W.I.P keeps me away from sewing most days too! Good luck with your projects! I'm looking forward to seeing them when they are finished!
