W.I.P. for this week

Well my W.I.P. for this week is almost complete. I have been making  a wheel chair quillow for a gift for a young lady who is about to graduate from high school. I have it finished and I have a weatherproof  slip cover cut out and ready to sew. I have made a couple before and the last one I made the slip cover and my daughter said that it worked well for the student that I made it for.
I had talked to the mom of the young lady to make sure it was something they would be able to use and not to offend. She was sew happy that we asked and said that they would be using it as soon as she receives it. I did not think I would get it done before grad , with only getting it started this week but I am happy to say she will have it on Friday.

The pattern is from  Valley Piecemakers Quilt  Guild in B.C. where I ordered the pattern but I have also found the same pattern on line. I know  that if you order one from them the funds go towards the projects that they support.
I will be linking up with The Needle and Thread Network  and also checking in to see what everyone else has been up to.

I have made my draw and will contact the winners before posting ..... thank you to all who stopped by for my day of the hop.

on another note...
              just a peek
Next week we have a art show here in town and I was asked to put in an entry I have those finished and ready to go ( they request 5 pieces ). I will post pictures of my entries next week. This is another first for me.
Here is the gown I had been working on all done. The halter ties up  with a 3 foot type scarf the falls to the back and a 2 foot train was added to the pattern

Thanks for stopping by today.
