WIP Wednesday

Some sewing getting done, but never as much as I'd like!  This is a secret project in the works, using the lovely Canyon by Kate Spain.

I just love these colors!  I'm hoping to have the top finished this weekend, and then off to the quilters.  I currently have FIVE at the quilters, which is a bit ridiculous, but at least some are getting done.  Or at least they will once I muster up the energy to do some binding.  I think I'm going to tackle the quilting on scrappy chevrons myself.  I need a baby quilt, and I think that will fit the bill nicely. 
And yes, other than adding the pretty picture, this post is exactly the same as last week.  I'm going to have to add some new projects just to make some changes.  :)

WIP Wednesday

Very little progress made this week, as I left last Wednesday for a family reunion.  We had an absolutely fabulous time, and got back Sunday afternoon.  I'm still trying to catch up!  My husband went off on Ragbrai, and my daughter out to Colorado to spend a week with my super-cool aunt, so it's just me and the little guy at home.  It's harder to get sewing done with him, as he wants to be IN the sewing room with me.  I've started him on some small paper-sewing - just running paper through the machine with an old needle.  He, of course, loves it, and wants to do it all the time.  I'm thinking about getting a smaller table set up with a kids machine, although I have no idea where I'd actually put it...  Until then, though, I sit on the loveseat with him after dinner and do cross stitch while he watches an episode of Octonauts. 

I dropped three more quilts off at the quilters before I left, which makes FIVE.  I'm going to have to do a serious binding binge. …

WIP Wednesday

Definitely making some progress - I moved one top into the finished pile, and just need to add borders onto another.  I finished a shirt for my upcoming vacation, and have another about 75% done.  Two quilts actually made it to the quilters, and I'm still trying to decide what the next project is going to be...

Summer fun

We've had some fun this summer, but we've obviously been wearing them out.




Even the older ones




But they did enjoy the fireworks


And the parade

And if we wear them out, at least the start the trips cheery!
