WIP Wednesday: short sewing week

My cousin stayed with us this week.  She flew in Thursday and Thursday night she hung out with me while we watched New Girl, drank tea, and sewed together some pieces for the little quilt I’m working on.

Friday and Saturday we were camping (wonderful!) and Sunday was recovering from our triathlon the day before, more New Girl and hanging with the cousin, but without the sewing this time.  This means that I only had half of my usual possible sewing days this week.  Still, I managed to get a few things done here and there.

1.  Three mei tais.  No progress.  

1a.  for Emily
1b.  for Kim
1c.  for Amanda

2.  Be Free Bees May quilt for Bernie.  No progress.  And, Bernie, it seems, has disappeared.  I’m actually a little bit concerned for her, even though I’ve never met her in real life.  We have a mailing deadline of the last day of the month, and Bernie didn’t send on her quilt at the end of April.  We haven’t seen her in our Flickr group since the middle of April, and she now has two of our group member’s projects in her possession: the one that was mailed to her (confirmed delivered May 3) and the one she should have mailed on.  I’m a little bit at a loss about what to do about this, since I’m technically the “group leader.”  I’ve tried looking up her phone number to no avail.  Any suggestions?

3.  Tote bags.  No progress.

4.  Gathered clutches.  Progress!  I told my friend Lorae ages and ages ago that I would make her a clutch.  I finished it this week, as well as another one for her mother.  Several others are cut out.  Yay.  

5.  Design and order woven labels.  No progress.  This should be an easy task.  I just need to DO IT already.  This week.

6.  Skill Builder Sampler blocks.  No progress.  But I’m adding another one.

6a.  Apple core block
6b.  Equilateral triangle block
6c.  Cactus flower block

7.  Double staircase rainbow quilt for A Girl in Paradise guest post.  Progress.  The rows for all nine blocks are complete and the borders are sewn together.

Back burner:
*Warm colors dresden plate: what to do with this?
*Rainbow/color wheel dresden wall hanging.

So, some progress, but no finishes.  The list remains the same.
