WIP Wednesday - Emphasis on the 'In Progress'

Is it just me, or is 2018 trying to pick up speed and fly by just like last year? I'm not going crazy on a birthday party this year...mainly because I have a sinus infection.  I keep looking for some fun things to make for my son's party, but he only decided last weekend on Mario theme, so that didn't give me a lot of time!  He gets what he gets...which is pretty much whatever I could find on Amazon and shipped fast.
New design for a reading pillow

That being said, I did manage to almost finish a few things...for some reason I can't seem to get things totally done this week!  Even my new purse still needs the should/cross body strap done, but I'm already using it.
Latest hooded towel order
More pictures coming soon!
Teacher hats are 2/3 done, just need to weave in ends and finish the last one, kind of nice to have some crochet projects with deadlines so I actually finish them...unlike the 27 other ones I have started and sitting in bags... If I ever finish all the crochet projects I bet I'll suddenly have about 7 of each hook size again instead of never being able to find the size I need...
Late night finishes mean pics aren't quite true to color...

Current Projects:

  • 2 more Hogwarts clutches - found embroidery for one, need to get these going!
  • Harry Potter embroidered reading pillow - Stitched out and just got in my GIANT new quilting ruler square that should make cutting pillows MUCH faster!
  • French Terry PJ pants for one kid (and me)
  • raglan style shirt for me with hood and fun fabric
  • Teacher gifts - 3 hats requested, 2 are done except for weaving in ends, and maybe a flower or something...
  • Sneaking in a new purse for me, I have 2 more days of my 'sew-cation' before I start working on this month's orders! 

Current Embroidery Projects:

  • Hello Kitty hooded towel
  • Sailor Moon keychains

 January Orders:

Current Crochet Projects:

  • Started a dragon scarf with one of my Black Friday sale buys...
  • Cotton coffee cup cozies - add buttons and felties, keep making more...
  • 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.

  • Tote bags using my coffee panels - India Swoon Pattern?
  • Baby quilt - Jungle Path pattern
