Well, it is no longer Wednesday, but a WIP report is in order. I have lots to share, mostly because I spent last weekend at The Stash Bash! We came. We sewed. We bashed. (TM Marla of Sew Hungry Inc.) Chris/Frecklemama was our gracious hostess, and she planned an awesome weekend of sewing and hanging out. It was a really relaxed environment--just what I hoped for. I had never been to a sewing retreat, so I wasn't sure which projects or how much to take along. I ended up taking fabric for two baby quilts and one throw-size quilt, and I made lots of progress!
Central Park shams
Before heading of to Stash Bash, I finished up a set of pillows for my friend to match these Central Park quilts. Two regular bed-size shams, one 16-inch sham, and two Sprockets pillows. The sprockets (tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew) were really fun to make, and the covered buttons make me feel fancy.
We had a little pouch swap at the Stash Bash, and I used the Leather-Accent Fold-Over Pouch pattern from LBG Studio to make mine. The fabric is from Field Study by Anna Maria Horner, and I upcycled an old suede jacket for the corners. I made a second (nearly identical) one to give to Elizabeth, and she ended up getting both of them. Blerg. Still feeling bad about that!
Fabric-covered clip boards
I wanted a little gift for a few Stash Bash pals, so I made some fabric-covered clipboards. (YouTube Tutorial Here.) I think these will make great teacher/coworker gifts! One note: I used a light fabric for the one in the back, and that didn't work out so great. The brown of the clipboard shows through, and you can see every little perfection. So dark fabrics are best!
Les Amis quilt
Here's one Stash Bash (near) finish: A baby quilt using Les Amis fabric. I was inspired by V and Co's recent Reverse Hopscotch quilt. I'm almost done stitching down the binding, so I'll be finishing this one up very soon.

Almost finished this one at Stash Bash too!

Sewed up this top last weekend too.
