WIP Wednesday {10.19.11}

Hey guys! Here we are again, ready to see how productive the week actually was! I think I got a good bit done, but I'm feeling pretty scattered right now so I think I need to regroup and figure out what I am doing this week.


Voile/flannel scarf 

I had gotten a half yard of this innocent crush voile and I just knew it needed to become a scarf. So I picked up some flannel at a quilt shop this past weekend and voila, a super soft luxurious scarf, and the flannel makes it pretty warm too. I love it. I wanted to make it an infinity scarf, but I think I'll get some knits for that.

Skill Builder Sampler - block 14

I actually really don't like this block much in general, but it gave me a good chance to use some of the decorative stitches on my machine that I'd been wanting to try out but never had a reason to.


Love! I did 4 blocks bringing me to 64 and this is all of them together so far. I am doing black sashing but found out yesterday that the stuff I ordered was not actually in stock (someone beat me to it!) so I am debating what I want to do.

Still Going:

Ikea quilt

I love this quilt top so much! Bright and cheerful! Hopefully this week I will go get a back.

Long Sleeved shirts for the little one

The gray one is done (and too big) and the other just needs the closures put in...I might do snaps since I can't do a button hole for the bottom button because of the fabric being too thick when I fold it back. And I might make one more. The red one will actually be a halloween costume too.

Nothing that is started enough to be a WIP. Just ideas. Lots of ideas. And pretty fabric.

Not too bad I suppose. We'll see what I can mange this week. I guess it depends partly on whether we have more guests this weekend, which is currently up in the air. I have a feeling I am going to end up with a lot of WIPs and few finishes for a while, but who knows, maybe I'll find more little things to keep me feeling productive.
