WIP Wednesday - Back on Schedule

Well, back on schedule for the blog posts, but not for the sewing.  Somehow the weekend FLEW by and I'm really not sure where the first half of this week went either...
New Strike offs for Moon Beam Textiles!  Make sure you get in your LOTR preorder before it closes Monday!
If you see some spare time laying around, please send it my way! I need more hours in my day so I can make all the fun things, like these water bottle minder tags!  They are just the silicone rings that usually go on pacifiers, but they stretch over the top of water bottles and can be fancied up with some of my fun key chains!
Normally Sir 'Chu prefers tea, but he might drink some water...
The strap is really short on the doodles one, so it sticks out
Some lay a little flatter....
While I was digging out some fabric to destash (Yes, I do send fabric out of the house unsewn, especially flannel that I have come to peace with never sewing) I ran across the Tula Pink Foxfield purse...I really need to finish it!  I don't even remember what it still needs, but it looks like there are all the pieces inside and the outside is totally done!
I really should finish this one...

Current Projects and Orders:

  • Add Strap to Starlet clutch

  • C2C (corner to corner) baby doll blanket crochet with some random scarfie yarn - Need to figure out what hook I was using...
