Works in Progress Wednesday

Quick!  Before Wednesday’s over!  What have I managed to accomplish this week?  I was feeling like I really got a lot done last week, but this week, even though I’ve had some big finishes, I’m not feeling like I was as productive.

Here’s The List from last week:

1.  Road Trip Quilt Along Tutorial
1a. Missouri for Friday.  Finished.  But it was late, and I’m kicking myself about that.  I’ve been posting my tutorials on Friday, but it didn’t happen until Monday this week.  I hadn’t begun it Wednesday, and then Thursday and Friday I tried to go to bed a little earlier since I had a race Saturday morning.  Then Saturday night, my husband had “the boys” over for campfire and cigars, and I usually say hello and then stay out of their hair, but they’re all teachers, and I hadn’t seen them all summer, so I stayed up and chatted.  Excuses, excuses.

1b. Kentucky for next week.  No progress.  Other than revisiting the block to figure out how I would write the tutorial.  I am sorry for my “I don’t like paper piecing” quilt along-ers, but there are 2 basic methods of putting this one together and they both involve paper piecing.

2. Gathered clutches.  No progress.  

3.  Luna Bags: the Essential Tote.  No progress.  Blargh.  I want to finish some of these!

4.  Hoopie swap project.  Finished!  Hooray!  And mailed!  Extra hooray!
 5.  Be Free Bees free form quilt robin additions.

5a. For Thea.  Some progress.  Half done with this one.
5b.  For Jenny.  No progress.  One at a time.  When I finish Thea’s, I’ll start on this one.

6.  Skirt for myself.  Finished.  Finished mere hours before the party I wanted to wear it to, but finished nonetheless.  Also took in my husband’s pants the day of the party.  Go me.
 7.  Clean the sewing room.  Er … Limited progress.  But enough that my 4-year-old noticed and commented about it being cleaner in there.  Ha!

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

I also made three 16 inch blocks for a quilt I will be making for my friend Brian.  He lost his home in the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs this summer, and I feel like making a quilt is something useful I can do to show him I care and help him settle into a new place when he gets to that point again.  I’ll post more details about this in a few days.  I’m hoping to get some of my quilt-y friends to help me out with this project.

So, here’s what The List is looking like now:

1.  Road Trip Quilt Along Tutorial
1a. Kentucky Chain for Friday
1b. West Virginia for next week: the last block!!
2. Gathered clutches.
3.  Luna Bags: the Essential Tote
4.  Be Free Bees free form quilt robin additions.
4a. For Thea.
4b.  For Jenny.
5.  Clean the sewing room.
6.  Quilt for Brian.

Two tutorials that I would like to complete, but are on the back burner right now:
7.  Equilateral triangle hexagon quilt block tutorial
8.  Kid’s play oven mitt tutorial

    I LOVE the way you’ve done your list! And way to go with the skirt! It looks great. I always feel proud of myself whenever sewing clothes is involved, especially taking things in and fixing them. The hoop is great!

    When you said “the boys” I thought you meant the students and thought it was interesting you were giving them cigars. =) Can I help with Brian’s quilt in any way?
