WIP Wednesday

How did it get to be Wednesday already!? Sheesh!
I missed posting a WIP post last week so I should have made some good progress right? :)

Well I made some progress, here and there.
I made an effort to get the vintage sheet ready for cutting by removing all the elastic (That was yucky! Old elastic is sticky.) And the tiny binding. It is now partially ironed. This really means I have to iron the whole thing again since I had to fold it back up to iron other things.

I made 2 bags, one for me and one for church nursery snack toting.

I attempted to make my block 11 for the Moose on the Porch Layer Cake QA but can not for the life of me get the pieces to be the same lengths when I sew them together. They all measure right and my seams were correct. So I unpicked around 8 seams and then tossed it in a basket to finish when I have more patience. :)

Thread catcher: I found my old scrapbooking cup and mini trash bag and clipped it to my desk to use just like the thread catcher and I don't use it. It is too small. So I figure I probably wouldn't use the thread catcher either.


  1. Holy moly, your list of projects puts me and my overachieving self to shame! Wowza!!

  2. Wow! That's a lotta WIPs - but if you're like me, you like to have just the right project when the inspiration strikes!

    The bags are super cute!

  3. Those bags are cute! Great spring colors.

  4. Oh wow, your WIP list is CRAZY! Are they seriously all started?! Your totes are really cute.

  5. Adorable bags! I'm blown away by your list, as usual. : ) Thanks for linking up, have a wonderful week!

  6. Your list are both inspiring and intimidating! On Texas Quilting they had a post about the power of ten. Even that is to much for me! I like this comment one of the guest on The Quilt Show made: One decision at a time. I decided to make this my motto for the rest of the year.

  7. Wow! That is quite a list. Clearly, I need to find some more projects. :)
