I had plans to post yesterday, but the day flew by! I took some time off of work to spend just relaxing and enjoying the anniversary of when I turned 21 (I won't say which anniversary...). I did get in some selfish almost sewing...it was more selfish cutting and pattern matching, with sewing to come soon. ;) And I even cut into my hoarded Tula Pink Octogarden. I only got one bolt when they reprinted it, so I'm down to under 8 yards now!! Whatever will I do??
|Fussy cutting! and wrinkly because I haven't ironed yet...|
I also finally got my Ikea metal cart put together. It will become the holder of all the things I usually pile on my cutting mat. Or at least that's the plan...so far it's working, but it's only been 2 days.
|My clear ruler holder is surprisingly not tipping off!|
WIP: (Stuff sitting out on my work area and taking up space)
Sewing:Selfish sewing jumped the line - Boronia Bowler bag has the fabric and vinyl cut, just needs the interfacing and all the sewing!
Wisteria Wallets - first one is done, but I kind of screwed up on it a little...and I forgot to include the body interfacing. It will become my example for size one I guess! Need to work on the 2 more that are ready to go!
March BOM - Pirate BunnyBeard just needs his strap! - Forgot to attach his strap and missed the deadline, but he will be going up on etsy once I finish him!
Random stash challenge - one kiss clutch 98% done! - Still needs the metal accent forced onto the flap. Abby's Alley is next, but I need to remember where I 'put away' the fabric while I was cleaning...
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 patterns...so 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,
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.
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! - new quilting foot is going to make this slightly faster, so hopefully I can start cranking out a ton and be prepared for Christmas!
Crochet:Started a Giraffe photographer, because I'm procrastinating on putting together the turtle.
Sea turtle lovey - Shell needs attached to body and then put together 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!
Embroidery: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!
