WIP Wednesday {6.5.13}

Happy Wednesday! I am moving right along over here, trying not to get too overwhelmed {trying being the key word}. As I mentioned the other day, I started pulling out baby stuff to figure out what I have to make in the next couple of months so my list has kind of exploded. I don't quite know how it will all get done, but I am trying to just pick things and do them and see how far I get. I am waiting for some fabric to arrive before I can do some of it. Anyway, I did actually finish a couple of things this week too!

beach robe

roller skate dress - my first oliver + s pattern and it came out really cute!

twinkle - I need to hand stitch down the binding....I don't quite know why I have been avoiding it but hopefully the mood strikes soon so I can get this done.

birthday dress for the little- I keep going back and forth on a pattern....I need to find a good twirly dress tutorial I think...any thoughts?
doll carrier - a birthday gift for the little
super tote - to be the new diaper bag
divided baskets - to organize baby stuff
baby stuff - hooded towels, washcloths, wipes, security blankets, burp cloths, voile/flannel blanket, t-shirts, decorated onesies, bibs....yeah, did I mention this list is a little out of control? At least they are all small and uncomplicated things :)
bed quilt for neighbor - one of these days...
pony club quilt - I would love to make some blocks at some point...
hexies - maybe these will get done when I get too big/uncomfortable to sit at my machine
wedding quilt - good thing the wedding isn't until october!

Writing all that down, made me realize that I am nuts. I am pretty sure that is not even everything on my list, but for now, that is plenty. I am hoping I can get the bulk of it done in June so that July can be a bit more relaxed, but we'll see how that works out. And if I don't start getting things made, I am going to have to quit reporting my wips because I won't be able to stand to look at the list ;) Anyway, hope you are having a good week and that your list is shorter than mine!
