WIP Wednesday {2.15.12}

Someone please explain to me how the days are so long but the weeks are so short! I wish I was a bear and I could just hibernate for the winter...ah well. Instead, I will sew away the winter :) I have a long list of things to sew to get me through the next few months. Of course it would go a lot better if I stopped adding things every week....


Embroidery 101!!

So happy to have this done! I love the way it turned out and I am pretty stinking proud of my embroidery. 

E-reader case

I decided to go ahead and make an e-reader case for the hubby for valentine's day. He picked the pac-man fabric and I kind of love it. This pattern is seriously wonderful and I love the way it comes out!

Stuffed birdie

This was a valentine's day gift for my little love bug. She totally loves it and I had quite the time getting a picture of it after I gave it to her! I'll do a full post on this one Friday.

Ikea quilt II top

I finished this the other day and I love it. Even more then the red/orange version from before. That could be because I like blue so much....but I am amazed how different they look even though they are the exact same design and print fabrics.

Still going:

Quilt for my aunt and uncle
I haven't gotten the chance to touch this one. Hopefully this week I'll at least get it laid out so that I can start sewing. 


Zip pouches
I am making some zip pouches for birthday gifts. And I need them done by next weekend. So I hope to do it this week if I can manage it.  I do have the fabric {almost} all cut, just no picture.


*echo quilt {I finally got the rest of the fabric!}
*scrappy string quilt {still deciding on a design}
*dresden toddler quilt
*scrap mini for the wall

 So that's my week. This week I will hopefully get the ikea quilt quilted and sew the binding on the front, and lay out my aunt and uncles quilt, and make 2 zip pouches. I doubt I'll be able to do it all since we have more guests this weekend, but I can sure try. Today I'll make a good start and get the quilt back done and if naptime goes really well, it will even get basted :) Have a good week everyone!
