WIP Wednesday {9.12.12}

Well, after a crazy productive week, I am happy to be slowing down and enjoying some more relaxing piecing. I finished most of my list from last week (which if you'll remember was huge) and my little lady is enjoying all her new clothes.


flashback skinny tees
I now have all 4 done that I had planned and she loves them!

pj set
Her crossover tee and sleeping johns. She has been wearing these this week to bed and seems to really like them. They are awfully soft so I don't blame her.

heart pants

I still feel kinda eh about these, but she wore them yesterday so that was good. I guess she likes them.

towel robe
She is so cute in her robe. We'll be trying it out this today for swimming lessons!

crib sheet
This came out really well. And every time she lays down she reminds me she is going to lay on the sheets that mama made :)

froggy hoodie
 I am calling this done even though it needs snaps. Man, everything is cuter when it's smaller. This is 6-12 months now just waiting for a sweet little baby to give it to.

t-shirt for me

Once I get a chance, I will take pictures of me in this and post about it. It is a bit more snug then I meant for it to be, but I think it will work. It was really simple anyway.

tova- the good one

I am so excited to wear this! I love the way it came out!! I'll do a full post once I get some pictures of me in it. 


tragic kingdom

My new quilting project. Which bears no resemblance to any of the quilts that have been sitting on my list. But once I got it into my head, I couldn't get it out and lets be real here, I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to do with all my strip scraps for months. I have no idea how big it will get or anything, but I am in love with it so far. And sorry for the crappy phone pic, I had to take what I could get since nap time was over and I had to clean up right quick. But you get the idea. I love it so far and I'm a bit obsessed. It does take forever though, so it will probably take me a while.

pillow cases
once we get the little one a pillow for her big girl bed (which we will be converting this weekend), I'll need to whip up a couple of pillow cases for her. Whether she'll actually use said pillow is, obviously, another story.

Still Going:

fall jacket
 I am going to get buttons this weekend I hope, and then I will finish it up.

pillow covers 2&3
Yeah, no rush on these. I'll get to them eventually. Maybe when I get tired of all those little strips. 

*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
*baby echo quilt - I decided I want to use my scraps, but I'm not quite sure how yet...

Honestly, I kind of can't believe I got all that done in a week. It makes me a little tired just looking at it so I'm sorry if it does the same for you. I have recently had ideas formulating about that echo baby quilt up there so that might get mixed in when I need a break from string piecing as well. For now I'm just chilling out for a while working on quilts that I just feel like making before I start the holiday gift making in a couple of weeks. So far it's really nice to be making things just because I want to. I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
