W(not)IP - Sewing Withdrawal!

I took my embroidery machine in last week, and even unplugged my sewing machine!  I feel like I need a sewing fix!!  Maybe I'll sneak in a quick zippered pouch or 5 from the free Pixie pattern from XOXO by Lauren...
Sweet roll yarn from Joann's, used part of it for a cowl already...

I have been doing more crochet this week (or more like falling asleep on the couch holding my crochet), but I still am not making a dent in my UFO piles... Mainly because I keep starting new projects!  The corner to corner stitch is my new addiction, I'm thinking of a scrappy one soon, once I finish the one I'm working on right now....Or, more likely, I'll just start another one before I get much further on this one.  No, must finish this first!!

Pretty metallic scale fabric...needs to become amazing projects!
One good thing about sorting through my craft area is all the neat stuff I'm running across!  It's like Christmas!

Current Projects:

  • Taking a break to pack everything up!

Current Crochet Projects:

  • WeeBee baby doll  -  Tail/bikini left. 
  • Chunky Unicorn Blanket - almost finished up to the hood, then just ears, horn, and fringe!
  • Figuring out C2C (corner to corner) crochet with some random scarfie yarn...ran out of yarn before I finished!  Now to decide if I frog back with yarn that hates being undone, or buy another skein if I can find it...
  • 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 coffee panels - India Swoon Pattern?
  • Baby quilt - Jungle Path pattern
  • Baby Mermaid gown 
  • Ruched Shirt
  • 2 more Sydney purses
