What-a-Day WIP Wednesday!
This morning was supposed to be routine: get the kids off to school, post to my blog, get busy sewing. And then my older daughter decided to get up close and personal with the corner of the coffee table. Between the epic bug, ensuing ear infections, school vacation, countless snow storms and bitter cold (it snowed last night. again.) and now an ER visit, these past few weeks have been totally sideways as far as productivity. (On a related note - thank goodness for glue! I had stitches at her age, but she just got some super glue and a few days of skipping the bathtub. Oh, and a "grown up" donut - not a munchkin, which seems to have totally made up for the entire morning's drama : P)
Soooooo now here's my post a few hours later...
My progress so far has been to choose fabric, cut and piece a little Maverick Star mini quilt. But I think I *may* be guilty of already falling off the wagon, because when I found a scrap of fairy fabric and fussy cut it for the star, I almost immediately figured it would look best in my daughters' room... which means it might not really be for me, so now I need a new project to make up for it! I have managed to sit down and sew every day, though, so the daily habit I want to reinforce is coming along, even if the self-focus has been thrown off a tad.
I've also started cutting strips for my TLP herringbone quilts. It is almost painful to chop up the adorable Wee Wander prints with horses and fawns, but I'm looking forward to plunging into the piecing this weekend, so it's gotta be done!
What are you up to this week? I'm linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts' Let's Bee Social while madly trying to catch up on work and eagerly awaiting spring! You?
Sorry to hear about the mis-hap with the coffee table,but also glad that it was made better with some super glue and a donut!
Your star block is super sweet. Yes, that fairy is so cute! I can see where we all have trouble sewing something just for ourselves. But the act of sewing for our enjoyment is just for us! I really think that has GOT to count! I am sure that cutting into the Wee Wander had to hurt, but having a new rotary cutter must have made it a little less painful! Congrats! Sorry to hear your daughter got a nasty bump, but they sure bounce back quickly. Yes, it has been a LONG winter! Good for you managing to get your 30 minutes in daily!
Moms, are superstars, and we all have days like that, but we brush owr hair out of our eyes, and pull our big girl panties up and go forth..... Love the maverick star, I call them wonky stars, make lots of them, granddaughter loves them on pillow, curtians, quilts, bags, shirts, you name it she loves it......
Lovely projects! So sweet and cute! :)
Sarah, I am sorry to hear about the mishap! That is always scary to deal with! Okay, I can totally relate---those prints are almost too pretty to cut up! I asked my six year old daughter how she felt about the fabric and she loved it--and hasn't stopped asking me for it! :) I can't wait to see how your quilt turns out!
Gah, it happens! I'm just always glad when my hubby is home to take over - I can do triage, but I freak out about the hospital, so thankfully he could take her and be calm about it. Hope your daughter has some lovely Wee Wander in her life soon - it's really a fun line and I like that it'll grow with my kids for a while. Thanks for hosting!
