WIP Wednesday!

I haven't played along with WIP Wednesday for ages, but thought it would be good to keep track of where I am this week! Especially as it's half term next week, and I may not get anywhere near my sewing machine!

Hootenanny Quilt! 
I really cracked on with this on Sunday and added a bit more yesterday!
As long as I lay the blocks out, they sew together really quickly! Although I can't help feeling like I'm being watched!!!

Swoon Quilt
I have added another block to the mix so the count is now up to 4.
Nearly half way there..... with a pile of HST's ready for trimming and ironing

Kids Clothes Week
I had great hopes for KCW this time, but my planning was rubbish.
Last night I worked on this corduroy Hopscotch Skirt and just need to fit it to Rose for the elastic sizing and do the buttonholes.
For the life of me, I cannot get a decent photo of the colour of this cord! 
From sewing this, I now know corduroy is so so bulky!!! And that I must trim trim trim those seams!
Then this morning, this delicious lot of fabric arrived from Cloth Kits, which I have hopes to turn into a Book Report Dress.
So, thats my crazy week! Send me luck or cans of Diet Coke, I think I may need it!

  9. Hey I've just started cutting my fabrics for the Hootenanny quilt! But I can't decide on a colour for the backing, I'm worried chocolate will be too dark, but I love your slightly bronze coloured backing, would you mind me asking what colour you've used?

  10. I'll send both! Should have started with the feet if you didn't want to be eyed up though ;o)
