WIP Wednesday {8.1.12}

Woah it's August! As much as I can hardly believe we are 8 months into this year, man am I glad July is over. It was a rough one, and I am hopeful about beginning a new month. I am still mending and thus can't do quite as much as I'd like, but I'm getting there and have been doing little bits here and there. I did finally finish one of my knitting projects since I was supposed to be resting, so that's a good thing. And once my needles get here I am so going to try some sock making!

Anyway, the point is, I thought putting up my wip list would help get me back on track. I am hopeful for more time behind the machine this week, but if life won't allow it, I'll just have to sew some hexies or something :)

I never got to put this one up on my completed list so here it is. I love it so, so much; now I just have to not-so patiently wait for the little one to decide that the potty is a good thing so we can covert her bed.

this is my knitting finish. I pushed through and finished it up while watching some bad cooking shows on create tv this week :) I am happy with how it turned out and I hope she loves it. I used this pattern.


vintage circus quilt

I actually sewed this one up really quickly last week and it is one of my favorite quilts ever. Or at least it was before I quilted it and ended up with some puckers. I am hoping that once it is all washed and lovely it will be less noticeable and will return to the favorite spot.  In any case, it is ready for binding, I just need to make it and slap it on there so I can curl up with a movie and get down to business.

Still Going:

The sashing is half cut and ready for phase one. I need to figure out a layout first though which is why I have been stalling. It is tough to layout all those squares in so little space. It is next on the list though once I get the binding on the vintage circus quilt. Of course I still don't have a back or any idea how to quilt it.....

I have at least started thinking about this one again. That means there is hope!

I also keep getting the itch to organize my fabric cabinet. The sad fact is that I am just out of space so it doesn't stay nice for very long, but I think I am going to need to fix it up again soon. I also need to get everything together and make some fall clothes for my little love. At least some t-shirts and leggings or something, and I have some fabric to make her some knit sheets. And my sisters birthday is coming.... *sigh* Once I have the energy I suppose I'll make a proper list to work from. So happy Wednesday! I hope to be back with something pretty to share soon!
