WIP Wednesday {9.14.11}

Holy tiredness batman! We are having a crazy week around here, what with a husband back to work and a toddler who is....going through a clingy/needy/whiny/defiant period. Consequently, I am feeling a little fried and have not been as productive as I would like to have been. I have been working on some bags that I wanted finished by today so I could work on my FW blocks, but alas, I will have to put that off until tomorrow I think so I can get these bags off my sewing table. Oh well. Anyway, on to what has been accomplished!


Swoon top!
I am so excited this top is done!! Still not loving it, but liking it well enough. I am hoping to baste it and start quilting this weekend and I have ordered some solid gray for the binding which I think will look nice with both the front and the back. Even though my mom tells me she doesn't like gray....oh well, it will look nice. 

Skill Builder Sampler -block 10

A good basic block that I had never done before.


5 more blocks down, bringing me to 42 out of 111 done! We'll see how many I get done this week. 


Curvy/Zip Clutches

I have had these on my list for a long time now. I am making a total of 7 clutches, 5 of which have specific recipents in mind, the others were just because I wanted to use the pretty fabrics and that way I'll have them on hand. So far I am done 3 of the snap clutches completely, the 2 zip clutches need some finishing details, and I have one partially done and one not started which I will hopefully take care of today.

Still Going:


So that's that. I didn't do too bad this week I guess. Hopefully today I finish the bags so I can cross those off the list and move on to other things.  I guess that depends how naptime goes....
