WIP Wednesday #3

Unfortunately not much got done this week  :(  I was focused on the party all last week and then was gone to Golden for white water rafting on the weekend.  But, I did get a little done!

New Projects

1)  Amy Butler's Cosmo Bag

I found some left over home decor weight material that I had bought to recover my vanity stool.  The pattern is a little larger, so I thought it would be perfect for this bag!

Ongoing Projects

1)  Pink and Green Quilt

Ok, I need to pick an original name for this one.  Any suggestions?  If you have any, leave a comment!  I'll pick my fave and the winner will receive a cute coffee mug sleeve :)

Anyway, I have almost finished the quilting for this one!  I'm probably about 3/4 the way through!

Now I just have to cut and sew on the binding.  I'm going to use this for the binding:

It's getting so close! I'm so excited to be almost done my first quilt!  I couldn't have done it without Cleo; she was such a big help.

2)  Wedding Placemats

Unfortunately due to the lame Canada Post strike, we weren't able to order the fabrics I wanted from Hawthorne Threads.  So I might not get these done in time.  The wedding is at the end of July.  Bah.

3)  Skill Builder Sampler QAL

You can see my progress here.

4)  Olive Circles Dress

I got the pattern and material cut out for this one.  I now just have to book a time with my mom to go over to her place and use her serger.

On Hold

4)  2 Dresses


1)  Pillowcase Skirt

Well, this one isn't actually completed.  I had cut it the length I wanted, made the space for the elastic waistband, and threaded the elastic through when I finally decided to try it on.  It was too small for my big bum!  I was so disappointed!  So I'm just going to take it apart, keep the elastic for something else, and cut it up for a quilt.  Oh well, you win some and you lose some.
