WIP Wednesday - Time To Wrap Everything Up!

It's almost time to pack up my sewing area for a move to a sewing STUDIO!  (or at least that's what I'm going to call it, which sounds fancier than a sewing room.)  I need to get at least some of my WIPs and UFOs cleared out so I don't lose the pieces in the move, or forget what I was doing...
My sewing machine likes to wear purse hats.  Says it makes him feel fancy.

To that end, I'm working on wrapping up my own Ellen's Esplanade, and looking through my piles for half finished projects, like this stack of crayon rolls...
I don't even remember when I cut these out, they've been in the pile THAT long...

Or the Bella II purse that has been sitting on the shelf patiently waiting for her turn...Or my stack of uncut embroidered projects...
This is just about 1/5 the pile...but if I can get these done by the next craft event, I'll take it!

Or maybe I'll just see how many small zippered pouches I can create out of some of my fabric stash!  Oh, or there's the quilt and mermaid baby gown I need to finish for a new niece...

Current Projects:

  • Ellen's Esplanade - Using some awesome custom printed Harry Potter Coffee fabric!
  • Possibly pattern testing (because I'm slightly insane.  In case you didn't realize that)
  • Ruched Shirt - Going to try this one using some of my less fancy knit fabric, hopefully it is fast and flattering! 

Current Crochet Projects:

  • WeeBee baby doll  -  Tail/bikini left. 
  • Chunky Unicorn Blanket - almost finished up to the hood, then just ears, horn, and fringe!
  • Started working on cowls for the fall because they are mindless and fast...but I really should totally finish them, not leave them with tails and button-less...

Next Projects: (orders and using up fabric)

  • Handkerchief Purse
  • Bag of the Month - February and March - going to try to do at least 4 of the patterns before the club ends in June!
  • custom knit leggings - Harry Potter marauder's map (?)
  • Tote bags using my new coffee panels - India Swoon Pattern?
  • Baby quilt - Jungle Path pattern
  • Baby Mermaid gown
