WIP Wednesday

I decided to take part in the weekly work in progress report over on Freshly Pieced as I thought it would be a good way for me to keep track of everything. At the moment, everything seems very close to running away from me altogether, I'm so busy with all sorts of stuff. Not least how to do a birthday party next week for a little girl who does NOT want to be three and definitely doesn't want to blow out any candles....but who will turn around on the day and throw the mother and father of all tantrums if there is no party. Yay for irrational almost-threenagers. ;-)

So here goes:

Completed this week:


"Sophie's Dreams" quilt which I am super proud of and totally love :-)






Baby blanket for a new baby girl called Mia



Super fabric & general supplies top up!



It's been a pretty good week here, productivity wise! I'm really pleased with all that.

Work in Progress:

My "PictureBox" quilt is now basted and ready for quilting. Should have this finished by the weekend, hooray!



A baby boy's blanket top I'm working on is pieced and just needs backing and binding (no quilting) - sorry, photo of this isn't good enough to use but it is cute!


Most exciting thing is I am working out ideas for some new baby buggy snuggle blankets :-)


Stuff I'll be starting (and finishing) in next week or so:


My pincushion for my Flickr Scrappy Pincushion swap - lots of ideas, just need to nail one down. This is a fun one, am looking forward to it :-)

Baby buggy blankets - lots of them :-)


Stuff I wish I had more progress on but seem to be on hold:


My curtains - my beautiful duck egg and champagne curtains for my own room - are STILL sitting half done in my sewing basket. Must get done by month end.

Handbags for 2 of my friends - girls, I will get them done in the next few weeks I promise!


Grand Plans!


Kate Conklin's Charm Bracelet quilt for my own room using a Kate Spain "Fandango" charm pack.

A quilt - still thinking about what - with my Origins layer cake

A baby quilt design for which I have a clear picture in my head but need to figure out how to make it a reality!



So that's me - any wonder things are running away from me??!!!! That's not including the full time day job or the husband and 2 kids to look after..... but what do you do when you have a (crafting) addiction? Just go with the flow I say! I'd love to hear what you're working on this week if you have a few minutes to leave a comment .... just so I know I'm not the only insane person out there!

You make me feel so much more normal! I was showing my MIL my in progress items.. and as we were talking I referenced.. and for the next one. She looked at me like.. you already have 5-6 things going and you are already thinking about the next thing? It's really nice to know I'm not alone in it!

And I'm not sure what my favorites are ... you have so many goodies going!! I decided I am going to have to follow along to see what happens!!

That's Sophie quilt is fantastic! I love the quilting you did on it :)

Jessica said...

Oh I love that picture box quilt, what a cool idea! Did that come from a pattern or did you make it up? Must store that idea for larger scale print or an upcomming baby quilt!
