WIP Wednesday

 This week I have been working on the Madrona Road Challenge.  I decided to make a mini quilt with ubiquitous (in modern quilting at least) wonky log cabins.   It measures 12 x 16 inches and just needs to be bound.

Earlier this week someone in blogland asked why there were never any messed up pictures on blogs.  So to fill the lack of ugly messed up pictures, here is a close up of the back of the quilt.  Arrggg!  I don't know what happened, but it is a mess in quite a few places.  Quite honestly, I will only fix it if it gets picked to be in the Micheal Miller booth - a long shot.  Otherwise it will hang happily on my wall with that mess hidden.  Because life is too short to worry about all of the behind the scenes messes.  I think we can all just assume that they are there.  People will take pictures of the prettiest blocks with the best quilting in the best light they can because we are trying to create and capture beauty in this world.

And life is beautiful.  So is this little butter ball who moments before this picture had rubbed snot all over her face.  You can't tell from this picture but she also has a double ear infection, :( was miserable last night and her sisters are running around like crazy because we are snowed in and there isn't school.  I think we can all assume, even if we don't see it on blogs, that there are points that don't line up and dishes that don't get done.  I'm just glad that there are so many things to take pretty pictures of.  :)
