WIP Wednesday - Less Than a Week to Halloween!

and I'm not really any closer to being ready...Eeek!!!  I have the fabric for one Halloween costume ready to be cut out and sewn...but that's as far as I've gotten.
Splat fabric!

Anyone looking for a sparkly pink trooper bow?I have a few...
I'm slowly making a dent in the 'to cut' pile...very slowly...and this is only what I pulled out so far, I still have 3 more bags with other uncut bows, snap tabs, felties, finger puppets...

Finally going to get the Christmas Doctor Who stuff cut out...that I stitched last winter
I think my motto for the next 2 weeks is "Just keep sewing. and cutting. and gluing. and snapping. NO SLEEP FOR YOU."  To whom do I speak about the coffee iv drip?

Current Projects:

Mini Tie or wallet piece?
  • Funny Faces Brandt's Boulevard Order
  • Hobbit Bibs
  • crayon rolls
  • India Hobo sew along from The Fabric Geeks group - Done! Needs some pictures taken
  • Halloween Costumes - Splatoon shirt/skirt/leggings and squid hair, Duplicant Shirt, Now we've changed to some pokemon..., Addam's Family Shirt for me
  • Elephant Brandt's Boulevard
  • Nightmare Sydney Messenger Bag

Current Embroidery Projects:

  • Finger Puppets - Need to restock and try some of my new ones! Turtles that do martial arts are ready to be stitched, along with some space heroes...
  • Stitch some of the new bows:  Cheer sized Jack, Sally, and Oogie; Ocean and other inspired bows
  • More embroidered peeker towels (and put together the finished hoods)
  • Ornaments - pull out baby machine and let her run?
  • restock key chains - maybe try some of my new ones or just add more Star Wars inspired ones...

Current Crochet Projects:

  • Cotton coffee cup cozies - weave in ends, add buttons and felties, keep making more...
  • Weave in ends on hats and cowls, add buttons.
  • WeeBee baby doll  - Just needs some face details, and maybe a swimsuit to wear when she's not in her tail...bikini sort of works...made up my own pattern and it's interesting...
  • Chunky Unicorn Blanket - almost finished up to the hood, then just ears, horn, and fringe!
  • C2C (corner to corner) baby doll blanket crochet with some random scarfie yarn - Need to figure out what hook I was using...
  • Mermaid tail towel, 2 skeins of yarn into this, I must be doing something wrong because it's not THAT big yet and I only have 2 or 3 more skeins to go.
  • 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...
  • Started a princess dress style blanket - Need to just add a border on the sides and it's done!  Even have pieces already attached :O
