WIP Wednesday #1

Welcome to my first WIP Wednesday post!!  We'll see how good I am at keeping up with these... :)

If you haven't already done so, make sure you enter for a chance to win in my Apron Giveaway!

Here's what's been keeping me busy:

1) Pink & Green Quilt (it doesn't have a fancy name yet.)

I got the pattern from Kaffe Fassett's book Quilts in the Sun and just changed the colors around.  I have almost everything cut out, and about 1/3 of the squares done.  I was so excited to start sewing and wasn't patient enough to cut out all the pieces first and then sew them together, so I'm cutting as I'm going.  Once completed, this will be my first quilt, and I have no plans for it, so I'm not in a huge rush to finish it.

2) Camera Bag

All the pieces are cut out, and I finally bought the 1/2" foam last night.  It was on sale.  Yay for sales!!  I also picked a different fabric to go with they grey corduroy that I like much better than the navy I had originally planned to use.

3)  Pillowcase Skirt

I actually haven't done anything on this other than look at the pillowcase I'm planning on using.  But I want to hopefully get it finished this weekend so I can submit it to Crafterhours' Skirt Week 2011 by the deadline of June 17th.  I'm a little worried, though, because I'm also planning my cat's 2nd Birthday BBQ for that evening (honestly, I'm not a psycho cat lady... the bbq is really just an excuse to get together with friends!) and as usual seem to have bit off more than I can chew for that.  But I've already started preparing for it by baking the cookies last night and putting them in the freezer.  I made my favorite double chocolate cookies!  Hmmm, that's quite the rabbit trail... from a pillowcase skirt to cookies!

Up next on my to do list...

1)  Wedding Place Mats
2)  Kaleidescope Quilt-Along
3)  Quilt Sampler Quilt-Along

Neglected projects...

My poor crocheting!!

In other news, Cleo wants to go outside.  She thinks that if she tries to be cute it'll make me more willing to let her out...
