work in progress wednesday

This week I. . .
  • Almost finished this tote bag for a swap, which I talked about in my last post.  I just need to hand sew the hole in the lining where I turned the bag and it will be complete.
a little sneak peak . . .
  • Got about a quarter of the way done quilting my wonky cross quilt.  Maybe not quite that much, but I will round up :)
  • Received my papers for the Travellin' Pic Stitch blog hop.  I'm going to be EPP some rose star blocks.  
  • Finished most of my flying geese for my daughter's quilt.  This is a low priority, but I'm having fun working on it with my daughter so I will hopefully get to do some work on it this week. 
That's about it.  This week I would like to . . .
  • Get about half way done quilting my wonky cross quilt.  It is queen size and I have a hard time working up the motivation to sew those LONG lines.
  • Make my son's Superman costume.  This actually has to happen since we are going to a Halloween party at Disneyland on Tuesday.
  • Start working on something for the Mouthy Stitches swap.  I ordered a little bit of a fabric and it should hopefully be here tomorrow.  My partner is really brilliant and she has very beautiful taste, but seems to prefer different colors than what I normally use, so I thought I would use this opportunity to try some new colors.  
  • Hand sew the lining in the tote bag.  
  • Start working on some EPP.  This may not happen.  It is going to be a busy week.
I got some happy mail today.  When I first saw Field Study, I didn't think I needed it.  Turned out I was wrong.  I did stick to a few of my favorite prints, but I have a feeling I will regret it if I don't get more! (there is one Chicopee print in here too that I decided I needed, I can't turn down that color!)
