All things considered, this was a difficult week. I struggled a bit with trying to get things done due to work (see my post earlier this week) but managed to pick up a little in the last few days, much to my relief.
So here goes:
Owl baby snuggle blanket for a customer order. I absolutely love this fabric and think it works great as a blanket!
Scrappy mug rug; this was a fun little project I ran up in the space of an hour to make myself feel a little better and give me some instant gratification. I've since brought it in to work where it gives me a smile every time I make a cup of coffee (which is a lot!)
Work in Progress:
Yay! This week I finally moved 2 of my projects which had been stalled for a LONG time to my "in progress" list. This is a pretty major achievement, they were in danger of falling into permanent UFO territory. Drum roll please........ I actually interfaced my Cosmo bag pieces.
Seriously. I can't quite believe it myself! I had been dreading it, but tonight, after listening to the kids tearing around upstairs for over an hour instead of sleeping quietly in their bed and driving me mad coming up and down the stairs, I wasn't in very good form, and then my iron ruined the minky on the blanket I was working on. At that stage I really wasn't in the mood for sewing but wanted to get something done and I turned up my iPod very loud and got out the pieces and stood there working off my bad mood with the iron. (I ruined my ironing board cover with interfacing all over it, but that suits me fine, I'm just looking for an excuse to replace it). After that I was on a roll, so I got out my stalled bedroom curtains and made good progress basting my hems - not done yet but I am thrilled to have gotten it moving.
I also made some great progress in new designs for my baby blankets, and started a design for a quilt for my goddaughter when I was supervising the kids arty crafty activities at the weekend.
I was making good progress with the blanket orders but am stalled now after the iron incident this evening. Hopefully the order I placed last week for more minky will arrive tomorrow so that I can get them finished.
Finally, I'm almost finished writing up the tute for my PictureBox quilt, just a few more details to sort and then it will be ready to go. I'm hoping to have it up by Thursday evening, all going well.
Other lovely stuff:
I got my goodies in the post from the Scrappy Pincushion Swap I was participating in on Flickr and was totally thrilled with them!
I also signed up for the SewSara Scrap Swap which I'm looking forward to!
I have some taggies hanging around waiting for names to be hand embroidered on them - must move those along.
Otherwise, what started out a dificult week turned out pretty well! Can't wait to see what you're all up to too.
I'll be linking this up with WIP Wednesday and some other great blogs ---->>
