WIP Wednesday

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! I had a week off of work and actually marked some projects off my list. Unfortunately, the weather hasn't cooperated for any picture-taking, so I'll be back soon with those.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Christmas Quilt
Christmas quilt!
Holly Jolly. Details here.

Christmas PJs for Luke
Luke PJs

I had some extra flannel from the back of my Christmas quilt to make Luke a pair of PJ pants.(He would only pose for pictures if he could do some Ninja moves. Diva.) I used Dana's instructions for making your own pattern. Not perfect, but they're wearable, and he proclaimed them "cozy." I have some leftover Batman flannel from the back of his superhero quilt, and I wanted to try out the pattern before I made those.

Ruffle totes
Done! Details soon.

Christmas mini
Stack o' presents
Done! I had one extra block from my Christmas quilt, and I turned it into a mini. Pictures if/when the sun comes out.

In progress
Done...just need to finish it off with some blanket stitches. First, need to learn how to blanket stitch.

Superhero Alphabet Sampler

I got this awesome Superhero Alphabet Cross-Stitch Sampler from Wee Little Stitches. I started in the middle with M for Martian Manhunter (as if you didn't know). This is going to be a long-term project, much to Luke's dismay.

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
Postage Stamp quilt
Kaleidoscope baby quilt #2

To do:
Ruffle totes
Journal cover
Drunkard's Path Quilt-Along
Zippy pouches
November do. Good Stitches quilt

Head over to Lee's to see what everyone is working on!
