WiP Wednesday: The one where I really should be cooking...

Thanks for all the well wishes for my little guy - he's doing a lot better this week, though one of the medications he's taking is making him a bit more hyper and crazy than usual, so that's made the week pretty interesting.  I cannot believe that tomorrow is going to be Thanksgiving already.  I'm sure it won't surprise you to know I've got a list of things to get started on today for Thanksgiving, so I'm going to try to make this one short and sweet.

Little Apples improv quilt

Finished Little Apples quilt

Soft books for my niece and nephew

For Katie's book (the pink pages), I used this awesome tutorial

SS Swap 

Still going:
Summer Sampler Plus - Finished up my three extra blocks for this quilt and mixed them in nicely, so next, I'm going to work on finishing up the quilt top!

Extra blocks for my Summer Sampler Plus complete!

Zero progress:
PJ Pants for the munchkin
New Bake Shop project
Charmed Prints QAL
Farmer's Wife QAL

And since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and I'm hosting again this year, I don't see a whole lot of sewing getting done soon!  Hopefully I can have a Sewing Friday instead of Black Friday or something, clock some quality holiday sewing time.  Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
