My normal WIP Wednesday list is on hiatus for while. Between the holidays and my due date (in January) I am just focusing on what needs to get done NOW. Instead I have decided to do a special edition Christmas WIP list! The list above shows the things that I would like to get done before Christmas, all of these are gifts. Honestly, in my head this list seemed a lot longer, so it really feels good to actually put pen to paper and write the list out. It doesn't seem so overwhelming now, which is really a good thing. Most of these items have not been started yet, but some are in the works, and others are in the "pulling fabric" stage, like the pillowcase below.
Two of the items are on the "if it doesn't get done, that is ok" list. The bookbag is going to be for my son, and honestly if it doesn't get done, oh well. The other is the table runner I am considering making for my mother-in-law, once again, if I get it done, great, otherwise, maybe next year.
The one project that I am smack dab in the middle of is the pirate blanket for my son. I am making a large 25" x 26" block (seen below) from the Modern Blocks book. It is almost finished (the water is laying down and is Heather Ross mermaids and fish.) I just have to add borders so that the finished size is closer to 36" x 40." I have not decided how to quilt this one yet (machine or hand) we shall see what time permits! Wish me luck on all my projects, I may need it!
Supplies for Pillowcase. Most of the prints are from Tanya Whelan.
