I am not usually one to have more than 1 or 2 WIPs at a time… I find it stressful to have multiple things wanting my attention (on top of other things in life), but this month sees me having MANY projects on the go… I’m starting to feel like I’m barely staying afloat!
Here is an updated picture of the brown satchel. I have sewn the seams up, done the bottom corners, and have started on the casings. I still have the handles, corners (that’s where I have an issue with the pattern) and the lining/closing… you know, minor details. I think it looks pretty spiffy though, don’t you?
The office manager at one of the places I work is having a baby, and since I had to bail on her last week for a job interview (and since I like making people prezzies!) I decided to whip her up a cute and simple baby blankie. I can’t take credit because my bestie is also making one of these, hopefully we can have a side-by-side photo! Anyways, I am proud of this because it’s my (and her) first attempt at front post DC and back post DC, stitches I didn’t think I would attempt for a while. In actual fact, they are so simple! And they give this blankie such great texture and effect. I <3! The pattern is Lion Brand’s Classic Coverlet and I am using an I Hook and Loops and Threads Snuggly Wuggly in lilac.
Other things I need to do… start over the kindle kozy… make a second purse/tote for my swap… make 12 inch squares for same swap… keep from going crazy? We’ll see.
Do that’s my WIPW for this week (it’s one of my bigger ones so far), please stop by Tami’s Amis for more!
