W.I.P Wednesday 2.6

Standard

I finally got to catch up on some projects this week.  I even dug into my U.F.O basket!!! So here’s what I accomplished……

Completed:

Lil Penguin’s winter scarf

From my U.F.O basket:

Lil Penguin was so thrilled to finally get his Thomas pillowcase. It was so easy to put together that I decided to make myself a couple new pillowcases with fabric from my stash.

Here’s a craft project that we made this week.

Lil Penguin and I created this picture frame using scraps from my bin. He picked out his favorite bits and we Mod Podged them to the frame.

 

In progress:

Quilts for Kids cupcake quilt- I have almost completed the quilt top. I just have to do the outer border and then I’m ready to sandwich!

New Knitting Project

Since I finished the scarf, I decided to start on a new pattern. I haven’t knitted anything but scarves, so I decided to try something different. I found a cute pattern for a little bag. It’s so simple that I’m about halfway done with the knitting bit already!

On the back burner:

Flurry Quilt
Orchard Path Pouch

W.I.P Wednesday 2.3

Standard

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced 

I’ve had a pretty productive week. I spent quite some time working on my Etsy shop. I revamped some listings and added international shipping to some items. I am working towards having international shipping on all my items. I have also been working on some embroidery patterns. I am hoping to have some of you test out the patterns for me in the near future. Stay tuned for more details in the next few weeks.

Completed Projects:

Let’s Go Fly a Kite

My first Artist Trading Card. I love it so much and it will be so hard to part with it when it sells. Maybe I should make some business cards or postcards with the image on it.

Magnets for RATZ swap- I picked the best 6 and mailed those. I hope my partner likes them!

Yo-yo hair clips for a sweet little girl’s birthday- forgot to take a pic 😦
The tutorial I used can be found here.

Fat quarter swap bundle and notions-  I got it ready and mailed off.

New Project

Cup o’ Joe mug rug- I am embroidering a coffee cup right now and I’m keeping under wraps until the top is done.

In progress:

Quilts for Kids cupcake quilt- I have the 4 patches done and now I can sew all the pieces together to make the top.

W.I.P Wednesday #2.2

Standard

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

This week has flown by! Sadly, I really have not had much sewing time. I did, however, organize my sewing area in the dining room. It’s still a work in progress, but at least I can easily find things now. After tidying, one thing  became very clear. My U.F.O basket is full! Completely full.  Apparently I really need to work on that. My new mantra will be “No more new projects”, at least until I finish some UFOs!

New Projects:

I just received my package from Quilts for Kids. I’m very excited and can’t wait to get started. It’s a really great cause and they send you the materials for free.

In Progress:

I’m almost finished with my magnets. After making hexies last week, I thought they would make cute magnets, too. So I have 2 sets basted and ready to become magnets. I finished stitching up 2 of the log cabins, but only 1 is sticking to my fridge! So I have to redo one 😦

I got the pattern and fabric cut out for the Orchard Path pouch. But, I need to go to the store for a matching zipper and some flusible fleece before I can finish it.

 

Ongoing Projects:


Orchard Path Pouch
Farmer’s Wife blocks
Americana BOM quilt
Flurry Quilt

 

Finished Projects:

3 Tee Shirt Canvas prints
