WIP Wednesday 10/15/14

I've still been in my sewing groove this week.  I didn't finish a thing, but at least I am working  LOL

Let's start with my 'design wall'.  I went and bought a vinyl tablecloth.  I didn't realize that the backing isn't the same as it used to be.  It's not working as well as I would like, but will work until I can get something different.
On my wall is my progress with the Charming Stars quilt with Terry's Treasures sewalong. (see button to the right)
Friday was sit n' sew at the local quilt shop.  I worked on making the lined Christmas bags that I am making for gifts this year.   I completed 7, so just 18 more to go.
I had hoped to finish the hot pads.   I did work on them and really hope to finish them this week.
Well, I took a picture, but apparently I didn't save it with a name before deleting.   I would take another picture but my camera is broken so it's hard to get the memory card in and out.

so...moving on...  I have a book to get a review done on.   I made the first project in the book, which is an envelope style pillow cover.  This is the first time I've made one and now I'm wondering why!

Just FYI  this is the book.  I will be getting the full review of it done soon.

I've been working on the brown, black, and gray hexagons for the soscrappy color challenge.  (See button at the bottom of my post)

Finally, yesterday was our monthly sewing club meeting at church where we sew for charity.
I actually ended up having enough time to sew the rows together after I took the picture.  Now the other ladies will sandwich and finish it when they have time.

Now for that UFO list.

 WIP Wednesday at Freshly PiecedWIPs on Wednesdays


  1. I love your Christmas bags. That's a commitment - to make 25 of them!

  2. I use the back of a vinyl table cloth for my 'design floor'. You can also purchase yardage of oilcloth, which is the same thing, I think. Your stars are very nice, and you're smart to sew them together as you go!
