Things have been quiet around here and I think I'm pretty far off from a finish so I thought I'd start up my WIP Wednesdays again. I'm finally in the 2nd trimester and starting to feel better so the sewing machine has been getting some use again- yay!
Before I get started, I just want to let you know that my bloggy friend and WIP Wednesday host, Lee has entered one of her adorable fabric design's into Connecting Thread's fabric design contest! Her design is called Flourish and is located under the Floral/Botanical section. You can vote here until the end of the month If you have a moment, go check out the designs and give Lee a vote!
So, I've slowly been getting back into the swing here. I've been avoiding my Weekender Bag for a looong time. I finally started putting in the lining. This part is a total pita because it's all hand sewing. But I'm going to Florida next weekend so I'm hoping to use this as my carry on. I'm heading to the bead store today. Hoping to get some cute beads to use as a zipper pull.
I've gotten a few arcs done for the Double Wedding Ring QAL. I'm beyond behind on this one so I'm just taking it at my own pace.
My design wall is totally taken up right now too with my do.Good Stitches quilt. First off, since I redesigned the room, the wall isn't easy to get a good photo of so excuse the bad picture! We used Jaybird Quilts Hexagon Quilt Along tutorial for this quilt. The girls sent a really fun mix of blocks! I'm adding a sashing between the rows to break it up a bit (it's on the right side). So far I'm really happy with how it's turning out.
Waiting for attention:
Aviary Birdbath for my mom
Beach bag for my sister
Sew Modern Quilt (blocks are coming back. I need my design wall free to do this one).
Total projects: 6
As usual, I'm linking to Freshly Pieced. Go see what everyone is up to!
