Works in Progress {Sewing Projects}

I have quite the list of projects to complete before our baby comes next month. Wow, that's strange to say. Here's what I'm currently working on/finishing up:

  • quilt for Ella (currently it's anchored and I'm about a 1/3 through the hand quilting)
  • quilt for baby boy (just finished sewing the quilt top tonight- hoping to get it anchored before bedtime)
  • a doll quilt (finishing the binding on this one as we speak- it will be nice to having something finished)
  • burpcloths (haven't started... these will probably be done in a panic while Kyle's in New York taking the bar exam - did I mention I'm due the day he takes it? Great timing.)
What projects are you currently working on? I'm curious! It's totally my personality to have 5 projects going at once, but I'm guessing most of you sane people just work on one at a time, right? Smart.

Here are a few pictures of E's quilt all laid out a few days before we left on our trip. I just love the bright, happy colors. They remind me of my happy baby girl and how happy she makes me. Stay tuned to see how different our baby boy's quilt is turning out to be. It's amazing how you can use the same base colors and end up with two completely different outcomes. I'm excited.

I always have a few sewing projects going on at any given time :). Right now it's: cloth diaper velcro replacements, tiny wallets for my mom's photography business, a nativity set (hand-sewing and it's been in the works for a couple years), Claire's blessing dress, etc. But I guess I like to have options. :)

Look so good - I love those colors! Burp cloths are so easy though, so you'll speed right through those, especially right after working on quilts. I have put the cabosh on sewing projects until after we move. It would just whittle away all of the "packing time" (though sewing sounds way better than packing...)
