W.I.P. Wednesday

This week has been incredibly unproductive sewing wise. My adorable son has started getting up twice a night and it's taking it's toll on all of us. Hence me writing this at 4am so that I can actually feel like I accomplished something.
Anyway, I am super excited to be participating in WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. I have been wanting to do this for some time but really didn't have a list of items I was working on. However after my trip to Fabric Depot and Bolt in Portland, I know have enough projects going on that I feel like I better have a list that holds me accountable. My list consists of some items that have been cut and others that I have the fabric for but still need to cut. Okay here we go!

1. Stash Basket for Chrissy X 2 she can choose, in both Garden and Bright by Ann Kelle. (Cut)

2. Pillow Case for Hudson/Sarah just like the one I did for Cohen. (Cut)
3. Blanket for Madison/Shelby (Cut and ready to be sewn.)
4. Blanket for Shelby's niece. (Fabric chosen)
5. Dress for me. This will be a knit shirt type dress in a Michael Miller print called Aromatherapy.
6. Skirt for Tesla (Oliver +S) you can see it here
7. Dress for Tesla (Oliver +S) you can see it here.
8. Shirt for Tesla (Oliver + S) you can see it here.
9. Dress for Tesla - Macy Giggles. Using the same pattern from that I used with this dress
10. Ironing Board Cover - in a Red Ta Dot by Michael Miller
11. Pj's for John in Beep Bot Flannel
12. Pouch for gifts - Can't say for who.
13. Pillow Case for my MIL or a table runner.
14. Quilt - I have the fabric and pattern just need to cut and get started. It's from Oh! Fransson.
15. Blanket for Cooper, using this fabric.
16. Blanket for Finley, using this fabric.
17. Bibs, burp cloths and blanket for Kate - Still waiting on the okay. 

Okay so that's what's going on. I'm really excited about each of these projects. I love that I have so many things that I HAVE to do. Sometimes being a stay at home can feel like there's no expectations of you accomplishing something creative or anything other than dinner, laundry and care for the kids. But to make a list that HAS to get done, I feel like I'm actually doing something, which overall makes me feel good.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog, be sure to hop back over to Freshly Pieced and read what others have on their WIP lists. Don't forget to leave a comment, you know I love it and to make it extra special won't you become a follower?


  1. Um, wow. That's a list there! You're going to be busy for a while. Love the fabrics you've picked. Have a productive summer!

  2. I love that butterfly fabric, having just worked it into a quilt last week. Ann Kelle is one of my favorites. And I'm so wanting to go to Bolt! I've read about it and heard about it, but alas, I live in Southern California so it won't be any time soon.
