WIP Wednesday

Joining a few others in WIP Wednesday - I will try to post all my WIPs, UFOs, Stash busters, stash builders [weak moment] and all kinds of projects. There may be some cross over to Weekend To-Do but remember how much I LOVE lists!
  • Churchouse Mohair loop still in the bag
  • Again NO quilting happened.
I spent most of the week working on these patchwork hearts! My scrap bags are out of control so I just kept piecing...

Finally made a sewing machine cover for my Janome Horizon. This is the first time I have done piping. Which required a night trip to Montavilla Sewing Center for a piping foot. The zipper foot on the Janome is not shaped for piping. I love that Montavilla is close and open until 8PM!


I decided that three of my patchwork hearts will be pillows and one will be a mini quilt. Just need to do the envelope part on the two pink ones. One is going to my niece and the other one will be sent to a friend.

The red one is Kirk's Valentine's pressie :)

Have I told you about my newest endeavor? Cross stitch?? I have dabbled in the past doing very small projects. My friend AnnaRobyn does amazing cross stitch and after admiring her work for years I decided to dive in. Just learning with a few projects - Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery Kawaii Winter Wonderland and 2013 Monthly Woodland Sampler.


Socks have made little progress - especially since I had to frog one side. The lace pattern was not coming out right.  Still loving socks!

Projects that are hanging out...
  • Poodle skirt for Amaya
  • PJs for me
  • PJs for Amaya and Cole
  • UofO quilt
  • Piecing batting
This post series is inspired by Freshly Pieced and linked up over there!

  3. Hopped over from Freshly Pieced. The hearts are lovely and inspiring. :) Also, I have some experience in cross stitch and it's definitely nothing to be scared of, especially for someone who already has sewing knowledge in general. :)

    1. Thank you! And thanks for the encouragement - I finally figured out that cross stitch isn't a quick craft.

  4. Love the sewing machine cover. I really need one of those but just haven't taken the time to make one. This is inspiring though.

  5. Thanks for the nice compliment . . . I'm feeling guilty now for not working on that Angel that's hanging out in my craft room. Your new WIP Wednesday posts are inspiring me. Love the hearts . . . hug fan of hearts. Not working? Sounds like we need to get caught up.
