Works in Progress: A Finish!

I must admit, these weekly works in progress checks are a great way for me to keep track of what I’ve been doing, what I want to be doing, and what I’m not doing.  Ha!

Here’s what The List looked like last week:

1.  Road Trip Quilt Along Tutorial
1a. Colorado.  Finished.  I posted the tutorial last Friday.  I really enjoyed that block.  Lost of fun with half square triangles.
1b. Kansas.  No progress.  I’m looking forward to this block.  It looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun with the string pieced triangles in the middle.
2. Gathered clutches.  Some progress.  One more is finished and two are well on their way to being finished.  I have a lot of zippers, but I ordered a combo pack from Zipper Stop, so I don’t actually have all the colors I need.  3.  Luna Bags: the Essential Tote No progress.
4.  Hoopie swap project.  Progress!  I finally stopped being intimidated by hand stitching and just did it.  It did not go well at first, but I’m learning.  I outlined each triangle with a straight stitch and completed a little flower above.  I still want to make some leaves and perhaps some accent swirls.
5.  Binding for my rainbow double staircase quilt.  No progress.  Still half finished with the binding.
6.  Be Free Bees free form quilt robin additions.  No progress.  
6a. For Thea.  I’m a little stuck on exactly what I want to do for Thea’s quilt.  It’s the same one that gave me pause the first time around.  This time, though, the most recent addition tied the quilt up so nicely that I don’t know where to go from here since this is the last month for this project.
6b.  For Jenny.  I actually do know what I want to do for Jenny’s quilt, but it just arrived today, so I haven’t had a chance to work on it at all.
7.  Draw sting soccer back.  Finished.  The fabric arrived, I made the bag, and I even posted a tutorial.  Sierra loves it.
8.  Skirt for myself.  No progress.  Though, if I actually intend to wear this to my husband’s opening faculty party, I’d better make some serious progress this week.

Two tutorials that I would like to complete, but are on the back burner right now:  No progress.  As I mentioned, they are on the back burner.
9.  Equilateral triangle hexagon quilt block tutorial
10.  Kid’s play oven mitt tutorial

I also had two finishes that weren’t on The List last week.  I decided to make a dresden pillow and a chevron pillow for my couch.

Go check out what others are working at Freshly Pieced!

Here’s The List as it looks now:

6.  Be Free Bees free form quilt robin additions.
6a. For Thea.
6b.  For Jenny.

ADDING:
8.  Clean the sewing room.  It’s getting disasterous to the point where it’s difficult to work efficiently in there.  Yikes!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. The secret is for a blog hop, and I can’t announce it until the organiser does, but because I’m heading to Sewing Summit I needed to get it done now. It’s killing me, I don’t do secrets that well lol

    Loving the look of that hoop, and good luck with your lists!
