*work in progress done! WIP'D!

This past year was the beginning of our new normal which we are all still getting used to, I know you have read that here before, but it is the truth!  We had a quiet simple life in North Carolina it did not include 19 chickens, 3 Nubian goats, 20 rabbits (currently) and 6 acres of land.   I had friends that I ate lunch with on a regular occasion, I drove to the foothills frequently to visit my best friend, and on a weekly basis I went to a quilting class that I loved being a part of.

My new normal does not include eating lunch with friends on a regular basis, nor does it include hopping in my  packed car and happily driving to the foothills to visit Franziska because I have a heap of animals that need constant care. Nor do I have a sweet quilting group to call my own - yet.   I love what God has blessed us with here and while it might sound like I am complaining... I am not.

In an effort to start and finish more than 3 quilts in 2012 I could use some encouragement, or a push along the way, perhaps some inspiration!  So join me in this WIP'D challenge if you will.  Each Friday I will be hosting a linky for you to come and share your WIP at any stage, no need to write a separate post to include in that weeks link up, just include a recent post sharing a quilting project you have made progress on in 2012.  I will start the WIP'D link up on the last Friday in January. Please tell your friends, grab my button and post it on your side bar, write a post about this on your blog if you will, and come back on the 27th of January to link up! 

Please take the html from the button in my side bar to add to your blog.  It would be great if you would like to blog about this in you are in a circle of quilters who might be interested. The more the merrier!  May all of your ups and downs be with a needle!  Keep a watch out, the first link up will be on the last Friday in January, see you then!
