Welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss. I can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!
First let me tell you what I've been up to
On Monday, I was finally able to publicly announce my acceptance into the 2019 Island Batik Ambassadors. You can appreciate I’m sure how hard this was—the boxes arrived long ago, during the first week of January!
So on Monday I celebrated by sharing my unboxing video. You won’t believe all the goodies they sent! Unbelievable eye-candy. The video by the way, was shot and edited by my darling girl. She always does such a great job. I’m so lucky to have her.
Click here to see what’s inside these two boxes. Yep, this time they sent two boxes—each weighing about 24 pounds. <grin>
Yesterday, I posted about my December Island Batik challenge. I actually finished it in December but with everything that happened, I forgot to post about it until yesterday. Click here to see how I answered the Whimsical and Wonky challenge.
I’m hoping to make some progress on my January IB challenge today, which was to make a quilt featuring a new fabric collection called Fortune Teller. It’s beautiful and bright and just what I need right now to locate my quilting mojo.
So that was my week.
Now let's see who made this week's feature
First up this week is Susan @ DesertSky Quilting, who reminded me that last week marked two full years of Wednesday Wait Loss! I’m shame-faced that I didn’t notice myself, but yeah, 104 would mean two years. (smacks head)
Happy 2nd Anniversary Wednesday Wait Loss!
Thanks Susan for remembering! You’re that kind of gal so I’m not surprised. Anyway, last week Susan shared her North Star blocks. Isn’t it amazing how a little color placement change changes the whole look of the block?
Next up is Lisa Marie, who wins the prize for the longest finish! She linked up her Poppy table runner top during Wednesday Wait Loss #10, and last week during Week #104, she linked up the finish. Hey, a finish is a finish and those that take the longest are the sweetest by far.
Congratulations Lisa Marie on a great finish! I really love this. So pretty!
Works4me19 (sorry, I couldn’t find your name) linked up a Flickr photo of a 2018 BOM. What a cute way to celebrate Halloween!
Works4me is new to Wednesday Wait Loss, so let’s give her lots of love. If you don’t belong to Flickr, you can leave a comment here for her and also for Lisa Marie, who shared her Poppy table runner from Flickr as well.
Last but not least is Nancy @ Joy for Grace. Nancy shared several blocks, and also a tip about using Dawn to prevent color transfer when washing blocks.
Congratulations ladies! Here's an I Was Featured badge for your blogs or to simply print out and wear with pride! Thank you for supporting my blog!
I’m not sure how to link up
Need help? Click the Wednesday Wait Loss tab above to get step by step instructions on what to do. You can link up a blog post, a photo from Flickr, Instagram, or Facebook, or a photo direct from your cell phone provided it is low resolution.
Time to link up!
Now it’s your turn to link up your works in progress and recently completed quilts! Here are some quick reminders about the linky party:
By linking up, you give me permission to grab a photo or two to share here on Wednesday Wait Loss.
This linky is all about encouragement, so please visit a few of the links and leave a comment.
If you’re uploading a photo from your phone/computer, leave a comment below that explains your project. And for the rest of us, please reply to a few of these comments leaving words of encouragement for a quick finish.
Please link back to my post somewhere in your blog post or use @inquiringquilter and #wedwaitloss to tag me in your Instagram/Flickr post.
If you link a photo from Facebook, please mention @InquiringQuilter and my Wednesday Wait Loss.
I appreciate your patience!
I use InLinkz to run my linky party, and they’ve forced me to change to their new setup. It’s clean and streamlined, but it may require you to login using Facebook or Google+, or to create a new login. Ugh. I’m so sorry for that, but I hope it won’t keep you from linking up.
Please support me if you can by linking your quilty works in progress. We have such a great group here I’d hate to see it break up because of a silly log-in thing. In the meantime, thank you so much for your support. It’s meant everything for me.
Linking to several fun quilty linky parties.
