WIP Wednesday - Too Much Going On!

This week was absolutely crazy for me.  Let's see... work is nuts, we got a new kitty, had to take my daughter to the emergency room for a bizarre allergic reaction to something totally unknown, a trip to the dentist with the same daughter only to find out her wisdom teeth are coming out and an evening with my boss to see Cesar Millan in person!  Quite the week...

Needless to say, not much sewing got done this week.  But I did make progress on the table toppers I'm working on for the furniture in my bedroom.

First, I completed the toppers for the night tables.


I simply used charm squares and sewed them together.  I then quilted straight lines about 1 inch apart.  I really like how simple they are.

And here is one of them on my night table...


Yesterday, I completed the top for the one that will go on my sweetie's dresser:


I plan on finishing the top for my dresser and get both quilted over the weekend.

And that's pretty much all I've got going at the moment!

Thought you might enjoy a picture of the new kitty!  She doesn't have a name yet, but I'm sure we'll come up with something perfect within the next few days!

Linking up at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.

Congrats on two finishes in a week of insanity! Sometimes it's nice to be able to point to something and know that It Will Stay Done.

Thanks for stopping by Freshly Pieced today and posting your WIP link.

I like the quilting on those! Simple! That's me! Less is more is my thought on the quilting process. Great job!
