WIP Wednesday

Another week... a busy one! Let's get to it...
Finished: Awesome Quilt!! Yea!


Weekender bags.

I cut out everything that I could possibly cut out. One total bag and all of the fusible webbing and peltex for the other two. Although, I did end up being short on fusible webbing. Either the pattern was wrong, or the lady at the fabric store stiffed me. Who knows. Anyway, today the fabric for the other two bags arrived, and can I just say - GORGEOUS!! I am so thrilled. I don't have a picture yet, but will get one by next week. So - first bag. I am through step 7. Now I'm on hold until my zippers arrive. This is my very first attempt at piping, and it wasn't too bad! YEA!


So far, this pattern is not as bad as I expected, but let's see how the rest treats me...

SBS:

Block 15! Love it!


NO Progress:
Princess Christmas Dress (although we did decide on colors and pattern)
Mug rugs (yeah, right. Let's talk about these around December 20th)
Lego Bag (soon, though)
King Size for E (we did find some fabric that she likes, though!)

NEW this week! (I know - I really have lost it.)

A dress for me! I am so excited to do this!!!


Turkey Costumes.

I suppose it's my fault. But, the kids begged for Turkey costumes for Thanksgiving. Here's the idea...


Which inspired this:


A Turkey Table Runner! This is just the layout, but I really think it's going to be darling! :)

So, there we are! Lots on the sewing table. Wish me luck and sanity!! :)

The Weekender pattern is a little short on the fusible interfacing - I ran out too! So how many Weekenders are you making - 3????? Wow!! Looking good so far :) Can't wait to see the turkey costumes!

Leanne said...

Your quilt is lovely and turkey costumes are too fun. Everyone is making that bag, I am going to cave and make one too soon, yours is going to be wonderful.

Every time I think I'm a little productive I head over to your place and realize I'd better run a little faster to keep up with you! Bravo to you for three weekender bags--you'll have to post if you hate them when you are through or if you love them. I'm collecting reviews before I start mine. And I love that turkey!
