WIP Wednesday {5.2.12}

You guys, is it really May already?? Unbelievable! Of course we have a bit of a cold going around the house right now so things are kind of in slow motion, but hopefully we'll be past it soon. It does have me a bit zapped for energy though, so I've been taking it easy the past couple of days. Today I hope to jump back in and work on a few things though!


Granny Squares Quilt

It is finished, all washed and crinkly, and I love it. I am so happy with how it turned out :)

Travel Purse

I will do a full post on Friday for this, but let me just say that it came out exactly how I planned and I love it! I can't wait to use it. I am thinking it needs a test run....


I got tired of sewing triangles (it doesn't take long) so I whipped this up the other afternoon. I had been looking for something to use this lovely fabric for and I think it's perfect. I actually might go do some top stitching around the top band, but I haven't decided yet. 

Still Going:

Cosmic Burst

 Top done! I am hoping to put the back together and baste it today so I an get quilting. I haven't decided how I feel about it yet, I am withholding judgement until it is quilted. It feels a little muddled, but I think quilting might help with that. We'll see. 

Scrappy Triangles

I finally started! And it is going to take over 900 triangles to make the generous picnic size that I want.  I might make it a touch smaller, I don't know yet. But I have 4 rows done so I have at least got a good start.

Toddler Dress #2
Maybe I'll go ahead and make this some time this week or next (while I am avoiding triangles) just so I can cross it off my stupid list. I knew I put it here for a reason!

I have high hopes for myself for the next couple of weeks before we go on vacation, but I think I'll be able to get it done.  I think we might have company this weekend though, so that might make it a bit more difficult. Anyway, that's what I've been up to. Now to go see what everyone else has been up to....
