First things first….Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! Woohoo. I even remembered to wear green! My McCarthy blood is so proud of me.
Second of all…even though my creativity out of the box experiment had, shall we say, less than stellar results, I did promise you an update here on my progress. Without further ado, I give you…
THE QUILTED FROGS PROJECT
Okay, so they still don’t resemble frogs yet. However, we have gotten our tops done, and I’ve picked up muslin for the bottom. Next up, sandwich and quilt! Given that I’ve machine quilted once…in a class…about 9 years ago, this could be challenging.
You will notice the lovely symmetry of the two tops in the top part of the photo. Yup, they belong to the girls. The one that looks a little funky? Yup, that’s mine. 🙂 It was creativity out of the box. Remember, people?
THE WIP WORD COUNT
I was shooting for 38K by today. How did I do?
I’ll take it!
How about you? How did you do on your projects?

Awesome word count! Quilting should be easy if you do straight-line or in the ditch. Do you have a walking foot for your machine?
Ummm. I think so? I was going to try that take-off-the-foot-and-free-form-it approach.
Nice work! Sometimes the sewing helps stimulate the writing. Great job with the word count!
Thanks. It’s finally starting to gel. The sun is helping a lot!!
I am working on reverse word count. I put on a Grim Reaper’s robe and carry a scythe. Since Saturday, I have revised 8 chapters and dropped maybe 800 words. Still hoping to cut more!
You’re flying through! Better sharpen that scythe.
