Well how bout this - 4 weeks between the last posts due to not much progress (and even less time) and now lookee here I have managed 2 Work in Progress (WIP) reports a week apart!!
That must mean one thing and one thing only - it has been a busy week!!
First before I show you my WIP report I just have to show you this...
My little t-shirt sweatshop has been so busy this week that I had to employ child slave labour...
Ok so that's probably not a very funny joke given the seriousness of child slave labour (imagine my google search results now!) - but have to make light of having a baby with yet another dose of croup... she's not a happy bunny at the moment so I had to employ her to "help" me last night since getting her to sleep apparently wasn't on the cards. Hopefully she will be better soon bless her.
And yes, I thought I was done with these t-shirts! But then I received a last minute order for another 10 yesterday to be done asap. Who am I to complain about more work, but hopefully this really is the last batch before the weekend...
In actual WIP news I haven't done a lot towards my long term WIPs. Nothing quite frankly. Although I did receive two extremely lovely blocks from Corrie in Bits & Pieces Bee which will go towards my cheeky quilt...
Corrie somehow managed to use lots and lots of my favourite fabrics together. So that was cool!
But despite my lack of work on the long term stuff, I did finish a few short term projects that have been clogging up head space & moving up in urgency on my to-do list... that was my priority this week!
My DS Dolls Quilts Swap quilt got finished:
I must try and get a better photo of this before I send it - my camera wasn't focusing well that day for some reason. Here is a closer look at my quilting:
I'm quite pleased with how this turned out since I had no idea what to do. It's hard to believe that I used 20 different DS fabrics in the making of this isn't it!
And I also finished the quilt for my friends new baby son as promised to her ages ago. I know I've already shown you but have another look just because it makes me feel like I've achieved as much as I feel like I have (by my exhaustion) this week :)
I had planned to sew another for my October Blankets of Love contribution, but sick children and lots of work this week have kind of put a delay on that until next week.
So now I'm just down to a few things on my to-do list as well as my long term WIP list. It's feeling so much more manageable now. YAY for these WIP Wednesday reports helping spur me on to getting stuff done.
So WIPs stats are:
Completed projects - 2 (2 quilts)
Long term WIPs- 3
Short term must-be-done-soon list - 4 (Christmas table runner swap, cushion for gift, October Blanket of Love, Quilt & finish Susan's Blanket of love contribution)
But as well a hugely busy work schedule at the moment and lots of orders to fill, I think I might have another reason to be distracted this week - take a look what finally turned up in my mailbox yesterday....
|Purse frames & magnetic snaps...|
TWO MONTHS these took to arrive!!!!!!!!!!!!! And after that it wasn't even what I'd ordered - but I'm not going to complain because she actually sent me the more expensive coloured frames that I'd been eyeing up in the beginning but they were twice the price of the silver ones. I'd almost given up hope & I'd also ordered some more from somewhere else. So when that turns up I'm going to have double.
I see lots of purses in my future!
Lets hope these are as quick, easy & fun as everybody says! :)
Linking up to Lee's WIP Wednesday when it becomes Wednesday there...
