WIP Wednesday {8.22.12}

Happy Wednesday! How is everyone's week going? We are just trying to soak up a bit more summer around here before the husband starts school next week. The weather has been just lovely and we are sure enjoying it. There has also been quite a bit of sewing which feels pretty good. I love weeks were I get to just knock out a bunch of smaller projects! And I am now almost done everything I need to make before labor day weekend when we see the families. Of course I also have my big finish....


skill builder sampler

I can't believe this is finally finished! Such a long time went into this quilt and I really love it. It is hanging out on my bed already and I love snuggling under it :)

zip clutch

This was pretty quick and easy. I love the blue/green thing going on, which is good since those are the requested colors.

duffle bag

This one's for me and I can't wait to use it. I used simplicity 2274 for the second time and I just love the way it comes out.

nikki tote

This is for my mom's birthday so only a little sneak peek allowed. I kind of want to keep it.


pillow covers
I decided I need new pillow covers for the couch. I just decided that like two days ago and haven't even gotten very far into a plan, but I think that is next. Just because. 

Still Going:

phone case
Well I made one and it didn't work out. That's what happens when I kind of make things up as I go. So today I am going to try again and hopefully get one that fits the phone and protects it. We'll see. I was close last time so hopefully a few small adjustments and we'll be in business.

*wedding quilt - this is not at all a priority right now, but I don't want to forget it
*baby quilt -inspiration has struck...once I have time to put it together

Not too bad. I am still undecided as to what to tackle next. I really need to make some fall clothes for my wee one but I'm avoiding....I just need to make myself do it. *sigh* I guess I just need to get myself into clothing mode, and while I am there maybe I'll finally make my other tova tops!  I guess we'll see. For now, the mission is to enjoy the end of summer and finish up these things.
