WIP Wednesday {1.11.12}

It's that time again, time for a roundup of works in progress. This is my first list of the new year and I'm kind of excited, I've missed it! I have been going to town on the smaller things on my list in hopes of getting it pretty clear so I can start some serious quilting in February. Now, with the month almost half over, I'm feeling pretty optimistic that I'll be where I want to be by then. So 3 weeks to get all this done and then let the quilts begin!


Snack Bags

I love these little things! I used mine yesterday for the first time and it works just beautifully :)

Hot Pads

Cute and oh so useful! Love!

Sewing Wallet

This is very not perfect, but it will work and I like it, especially to contain things as I am working on my embroidery

Skill Builder Sampler - block 22

I am all caught up. This is the first curves block and I like it quite a bit. It's a little wonky, but not too bad. I think my templates weren't quit the right size and I didn't know how to check the scale. (you can see the previous month of blocks here)

Farmer's Wife top (!!!!)

The top is officially done {happy dance}! I finally added the borders. I lovelovelove it! And the backing is supposed to be delivered tomorrow!!! So once I wash that, the basting will commence. And hopefully this weekend I will get to quilt it and make binding and get it all done except for the hand sewing the binding part! I can't wait!!!  (for pictures of the full top without borders, go here)

Still Going:

Embroidery 101

I finally picked this back up and started the embroidery part. This is what I have done of the first block and I don't think it will take me long to finish so I can get going on the next one. I am enjoying it a lot so far!

Bags (more on that later)
Slippers for the little one, and maybe a pair for me

And that is all I have right now. I want to make the few new things, finish my embroidery 101 (at least the blocks), finish my farmer's wife, and stay caught up on my skill builder blocks, with maybe a few other small things here and there that I am currently undecided on. I think that is pretty reasonable for 3 weeks. I guess time will tell! Happy Wednesday!
