Sew...

I was able to make saturday a productive crafting day afterall. It was fun. I mean don't get me wrong I did do 6 loads of laundry, dishes and meals and baths for the girls. In between I finished up a couple of WIP's. This is a pincushion I started about a year ago. I put the finishing touches of beads and stitched it together and stuffed it with Lizard liter. It's kind of heavy but I really like how it turned out. This snowman is a rug I hooked with a pattern by the Potted Pear. I was stuck on turning the raw edge, mostly because I hooked this before I learned about rug hooking tape and sewing it on BEFORE you start hooking! Anyhow, I managed to stitch the tape after I hooked it and slip stitched it to the back. It's ready for winter decorating finally. (It's been hooked for over 2 years).
Ah and here's Chew Chew my female cat, she's cozying up to the wool pillow I just finished this week...she's no dummy LOL.
Ah and through the day of organizing and finishing WIP's...I ran across this little girl. I had made this about 7 years ago..but didn't get her stuffed. Well when DD1 spotted her, I had to finish her immediately...ok I didn't finish her until this morning. I also made the bunting and started another one identical for DD2 whose freaking out over this doll. It is a Butterick pattern.

ANd last but not least I DID finish my Mystery BOM block #4. Whew...busy busy....and I hope to have more to show in the coming days....

Sounds like you had a great weekend. There's nothing like finishing up a bunch of WIPs. I need to do that too!

Very cute pin cushion. I can't wait to get sewing again. Now that my brother's wedding is done and over with, I can bust out the sewing machine! Projects are really piling up; of course I shop and just create the pile of projects so it's my own fault. LOL.

Good job finishing all those wips!! Doesn't that feel good, it's what I should be doing instead of sitting in front of the computer! I have a hooked rug project (unfinished) I started for my first niece...who is 22 in November!!! Now that is sad lol!
