WIPs on Wednesday

This week finds me continuing along with the theme of the year, working on UFOs. I still have so many and I’m really trying not to start any new projects until I whittle down the pile a bit. Too bad there aren’t two of me. One could piece while the other one quilts! LOL

The finish is this batik table runner made with 7 different batiks from my stash.

This one even has a pieced backing. I had 2 HSTs leftover and I didn’t want to add them to the growing pile of orphan blocks so I just added them to the back.


Hopefully this one will be next. Can’t tell you how long it’s been on my little piece of a design wall.


Have you been working on UFOs this week? I have to say it’s very satisfying getting these items off my “to do” list.

WIPs on Wednesday

Yea tax season is over for another year so as of Monday I’ve been able to spend some time in my sewing room.

I’ve been saying for years how I should make myself an apron. I wear one every time I cook or wash dishes. It’s an easy item to make, over the years I’ve even given them as gifts. So on Monday I did just that. I chose a flower print in some of my favorite colors. I made a pattern from an old purchased apron, and now I have a brand new apron. I think I’ll wear it on Easter.

On Tuesday I spent a little time organizing my WIPs. Since I finally raised my cutting table to the proper height there’s lots of room underneath for storage. Now all I need is for the project containers I want from Joann to go on sale! The idea is to have things so organized it helps me to move my WIPs to the finished category. Hope it works!
