WIP Wednesday {12.5.12}

The race is on! I am furiously working to get as much done as I can in the next 1.5 weeks, and it looks like I am going to get all the important things done. I am going to have to wait on the gifts for the little one until after we move I think, but that's okay, I know she won't mind.


bag for dad

Finished and I love it. I hope he does too and can use it.

Must Do:

feathers- I finished up the binding last night and it is currently being washed so I can photograph and send it out. Look for a reveal sometime next week!
bag for mom - I have one more piece to make and then I can quilt them and put it together. By the end of tomorrow I hope I have a finished bag.

seat belt cover - requested as a gift. I need to do this. soon.
lanyard - a graduation gift for my nursey friend
little ones gift - I know what I am making, but I need to pick fabric. It will probably wait until we move though.
key fobs - little gifts for everyone
needlepoint - Hasn't been touched since I have been focused on binding all week. I will pick it back up very soon though and hopefully finish it up pretty quickly.

Want to do (most of these will be for all the time traveling and away from my machine):
christmas pjs for the little one - clearly I will not have time. Unless I bring it and make it at my in-laws while we are there.....
hexie pillow - another thing I haven't touched all week.
hat for me
cross stitch 


*lilly belle -
this is getting moved down here until I have time to get supplies and think about it again.
*wedding quilt
-I think I know what I am going to do. But it might have to wait until I knock out some gifts....
*wedding quilt II-
I know exactly what I am going to do, I just need to find out what colors would be preferred.
*baby quilt -
still an idea just waiting for me to come play. Once I find the perfect fabric I will be on my way. Someday.... 

I am getting there. Slowly but surely. And all the fabric I don't need right now is packed so that is good. Still too much to do and not enough time, but it will all work out in the end. I seriously can't wait to be unpacked and start some new things! In the mean time, here's hoping for a very productive week!

  2. Great bag! I have that pattern on my list of must haves. :)

  3. your bag is great! so dad-appropriate. I love the plaid- I'm never brave enough to use it but it looks wonderful
