Monday night, I decided to sit down and really truly write down all my projects and see where I was at for the end of June.
|This is upside down because this is how I feel!!!|
It doesn't look good. I scratched out Tuesdays because they are cleaning, tutoring, and lesson day. It is a pipe dream to even think I can answer emails on that day! I am overbooked. I did it to myself. Some of it can wait. Some of it is for me. I imagine that I will shove them to the next month....and the next....and the next.....
But good news. Finishes and progress!!!
Flip Flop Pillow
It is just a fun outdoor pillow for the chaise lounge poolside..nothing too serious! To find out the process...it is HERE. I have been inspired to do a radically different pillow for inside the house...but that is going on my "wait and see" list now!
I finished the appliqued names and the animals!!
I am happy that they are similar, but have some subtle differences.
They are ready to go visit Ole Betsy.
But Elephant needs his ear and eye.
And Giraffe needs his eyes first!
Teacher Thank You gifts.
Since school is over, I have been working slowly. None of the mug rugs are in a completely finished state.
I just grab my little $0.99 straw bag and work on them here and there.
I am vastly worried about why I am even doing them! School has been over for 12 days now. Mail them? Or just wait and give them at the beginning of the school year? Thoughts!??!
Twin quilt for nursery
Baby girl quilt kit
Thank you quilt
Merry, Merry Snowman BOM (I realized that the FIFTH block is on it's way....haven't started??!?!?YIKES!!!)
Not necessarily a new project, but just haven't been counting it on my WIPs because I wasn't sure when I was ever going to truly start it...it has been in design phase for awhile. It is for a special momma. She has memorabilia and sweet Violet's urn on a shelf. She asked me to make a "shelf quilt" for her.
A Flying Geese border is my focus right now. Strange for me to work on a border first, but the center will go quickly since it is going to be machine embroidered!
|Foundation piecing: Flying Geese|
Foundation piecing seemed the best choice since I was too tired last night to try the "easy" methods and my triangles are 1 inch tall and 2 inches wide. I really want them to be accurate versus fast.
|Violet embroidery design|
I practiced my embroidery design that I edited and digitized from an image I found. After stitching it out and realizing that 28 inches is REALLY long (it is almost as long as a small tablerunner!) I have decided to change the design a bit more.....stay tuned...
I hope that I can meet all the commitments I have in the next 17 days.
DID I JUST SAY SEVENTEEN DAYS!?!?!?
