Weekly WIP 3/27/11

Ok, so I know I skipped a week.  I suck, and I'm sorry.  Will you forgive me?

We're moving in less than two weeks now (at least as long as nothing falls through!), and things are going to be crazy... but in the very very old farmhouse we are moving into, I will have my own sewing room.  I'm not sure how long it'll take before I get it set up.  I'm also not sure about our internet connection there yet.  I may be checking emails at McDonald's for a while.  :-/

So... in line with keeping things short and sweet, here's what's been accomplished & whats pending over the last couple of weeks:

I completed:
  • Tommy's Pinewood Derby Car 
  • Mending Tommy's Jeans
  • Part one of future SIL's shower present 

WIP's include:
  • Americana Quilt top- haven't touched it since before Thanksgiving...still
  • Hexies. Still.
  • The Bottled Rainbow quilt.  I've got all of my rectangles cut & pieced.  I just need to start placing the ticker tapes. 
  • Remaining 3 parts of SIL's shower present.  Waiting for fabrics to finish pre-washing.
  • Caylin's terrarium science project... Terrariums have been made... experiments in progress.

New projects:
  • Quilt for the Modern Relief raffle to help citizens of Japan.  I've already finished designing it, but since I haven't started cutting, I don't thing I can considering WIP.
  • Mug Rug for the Sew Happy Geek Mug Rug Swap.  Still time to sign up!

Until next time!

Weekly WIP 3/13/11

To give myself a reason to step back and take a blogging breath weekly, per my New Years Resolutions, I'm instating a weekly WIP.  Each week, I'll give a run-down of my works-in-progress, as well as completed projects & new projects.  I'll include any and all crafty bits as well as things like baking and other projects going on. 

So for this week, I completed:
  • Caylin's skirt (Picture to come)
  • The Zinger Cake
  • Mending of Maya's Skirt & Mike's Hat

WIP's include:
  • Americana Quilt top- haven't touched it since before Thanksgiving
  • Hexies.  I haven't decided what I'm making with them yet.  I just started randomly basting hexies, and now I've put together a few individual flowers.  Possibly a pillow to come?  Maybe just coasters.  I haven't decided yet.
  • Tommy's Pinewood Derby Car- due Tuesday (crap!!)
  • Oh- apparently more mending, says my hubs (thanks!)

New projects:
  • The Bottled Rainbow quilt- currently waiting for my husband to finish his ironing so I can iron & cut my solids (pick up the pace love!)
  • Fabrics are on their way for my future sister-in-law's shower gift.

Sorry for the lack of pictures...  I can't believe how late it is already!  It's always an adjustment with Daylight Savings Time!
