WIP Wednesday - End of January

Today is the last day of January, which means that it's official...the year is already flying by!  Somehow I finished up 2 purses last weekend, and they were fast ones, but sometimes I amaze myself!  Now if I could keep up that pace, I might actually sew through all my fabric before I'm 80!  (but I'll have bought more along the way to replace it...Ok, maybe sewn through all the fabric currently in my craft studio!)
"Dragons Wolves a throne to claim Open a book if you're game"

If you follow me on instagram, you'll have seen these pics already, but they are just too fun to not share again!  The Game of Thrones reading pillow is going to be HUGE.  2'x2' square!  I went with some large embroider to fill up the space and I may have gone overboard since it took over an hour for my machine to stitch this out!  I think a pillow with just the dire wolf would be awesome too...the fabric is a shimmery silvery frost looking one!

I like to think he's saying "Hi, thanks for buying something awesome"
I'm eagerly waiting for my next Etsy order so I can throw one of these adorable tigers on the packaging...but one might end up on my sewing machine soon...or laptop....or maybe I need a vinyl decal for my car....
Time for another crazy Sydney with a ton of fun cats!
The challenge for February is going to be finishing up orders, doing Valentine things for the kiddos school, and not getting the cold/flu that is going around.
