WIP Wednesday - Feeling Lonely

Apparently I've been overworking Stormy too much, so he decided he was going to make a horrible noise and randomly move his needle to the right...which I'm pretty sure is not a good thing for a sewing machine to do!  I took him into the shop last weekend after he broke several needles trying to sew through what normally wouldn't be an issue...the top stitching on the Kiss Clutch I'm working on for the Random Stash Challenge in the ChrisW Designs FB group!

Stormy's home...looking so bare and lonely.  And linty.  Maybe I should clean the mat...
I suppose I could hand sew some stuff to get at least the bottom finished, but I've just lost motivation...
Inside out...I need to rip out the topstitching where it went crazy, and then sew the bottom shut by hand.
Last night I forced myself to turn on the embroidery machine and once I got started, I had fun making some new designs!  
That's no moon!  Design is from Bobbin For Appliques
Now I just need to clean up the rest of the area so that when Stormy comes home I'm ready to start sewing!  Not a huge update to my never ending list today since no sewing machine...hopefully a well tuned machine will inspire me to finally get a ton of half finished stuff done!  I do have a backup sewing machine or 3, but they just aren't as nice...I might have to break down and start using them!  Or at least pull the one I got at a yard sale inside and see if it works at all...

WIP: (Stuff sitting out on my work area and taking up space)


Random stash challenge - one kiss clutch 90% done!  Abby's Alley is next, I could cut her out while I wait...

Brandt's Boulevard in sugar skulls, another one in "Girly" fabric for a later date

Crayon rolls - keep sewing my cut ones, I have so much awesome fabric for these!

March BOM - Pirate BunnyBeard just needs his strap! - This should really jump the line!

Embroidered pillow covers - need to cut a back piece after I figure out if I'm doing a zipper or envelope closure...I'm thinking of using my invisible zippers and doing another one from the same set of far the fish is in the lead for what will be stitched next.  Still procrastinating because I don't want to have to lint roll the entire sewing area after I cut my next piece.  Not even exaggerating.

Sedimental Quilt- all quilted, just needs squared up and binding - 2 sides are cut, need to do 2 more, when I have my cutting area cleaned off - I've been using it on the couch in the meantime because it's the perfect spring weight! Moving this up to the current list to get it finished so I can wash it!

May Bag of the Month- Swoon Brooklyn - I think I'm going with a Doctor Who random toss fabric that glows in the dark and blue glitter vinyl.


Sea turtle lovey - Actually worked on him, shell needs attached to body, and I'm even almost done with the blanket!

Mermaid lovey - Sea blanket is done, head is done (no hair), started on tail. Giant head is kind of freaking me out, so I need to finish her!  - June goal is to finish her up!


Keep cutting out my backlog of bows and keychain.  I didn't cut out everything in my stash, so I need to keep working on them!
Stitch out more couch pillows (and finish them) - I'd like to get the pillow forms out of my craft area and onto the couches!
More patches!

NIL (Next in Line-Things I plan on and want to do, but haven't gotten around to yet...)

Boronia Bowler - I really love the shape and wide open top featured on this purse, it would look amazing in just about any of my fabrics!!
Lotus Purse
Finish the Owl Epiphany purse
Crayon Rolls - These never end
Rosie Tsum Tsum purse
Tulip pouches (from this free pattern!!)
January Bag of the Month (Backgammon Bag) - Either in some Effervescence fabric or maybe the Zelda stained glass fabric
Quilted pillow covers - Sasquatch fabric is ready to go, just need some spare time!

UFO (Unfinished Objects that are already started but I have no set time to work on and don't want to forget about them forever!)

Cowls - just need buttons and ends woven in.  Giving up on the one a month plan until it gets closer to craft season.
Bella II in Tula Pink Foxfield - outside is done, inside is cut and waiting for me to finish, already have someone that wants it!
Doctor Who Pick a Pocket - all the pieces are cut, just needs finished!
Goldfish Lovey - fish is made, bowl is mostly made, needs put together
Dragon Lovey - I have pieces and the blanket done
Serendipity Hip in MLP fabric with vinyl bottom
