WIP Wednesday 8/10/11

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

This is my first official installment of WIP Wednesdays at freshly pieced!

Can I count this post as a completed project?   No, I didn't think so. But it IS tempting, since virtually all true sewing progress has come to a screeching halt.

T and I are on a week long adventure that includes but isn't limited to car repairs, visiting family, and the obligatory eating of 1 year old wedding cake.  Silly me did not pack any sewing stuff. Rookie mistake.

T has tactfully kicked me out of the garage, " some jobs are easier with only one set of hands."   So, I've spent most of my afternoons catching up on my stalking blogging and daydreaming about what I could be doing if I had packed my sewing machine.. ah well... 

Finished Projects
  1. The basement curtains for my Uncle are done! I forgot them at my apartment though, so they are not gracing their new home, yet. I can however check that off of my list. YAY!

New Projects
  1. Rainbow Charm Swap (a.k.a. mission yellow). I am on the hunt for yellow and yellow-orange fabric to share in the Rainbow Charm Swap!

Some of the swappers are totally on top of their game, and have already posted their selections onto flickr. Aren't they finding some great stuff?   I love the thrill of the hunt!

No Progress
  1. Quilt with No Name
  2. Scrappy Friendship Quilt (partially quilted)
  3. Log Cabin Flag Quilt (partially quilted)
  4. Sewing Room Pencil Holder
  5. Thomas the Tank Train Bag
  6. Needle Case
