WIP Wednesday

I’ve had lots of progress, but not a lot of finishes lately.

This is what has been taking up most of my time:

Our backyard was a sad, terrible, mess after being gone for three years (I won’t show you the before photo, until I have the after photos!).  We’ve been spending every weekend tearing things out, building, planting, staining and cleaning. It’s moving along nicely, but I have had little time for sewing and blogging lately.   The deadline to have the yard ready is May 25th for my daughter’s 2nd birthday party. Hopefully I can rest a bit after that!

In the meantime, my duvet cover finally wore out and I’ve been working on new bedding (after spending days searching the internet for ready-made bedding).

I purchased these decorator weight slub fabrics from Fabric.com.  I specifically wanted cheery yellow colors to wake up to.

I have the duvet cover and a pillow finished.  I am waiting for the stripe to arrive, so I can make the other 2 pillows.

In the evenings, I am slowly hand-sewing my Single Girl Quilt.

It’s slow going, but it will be so worth it in the end!

  1. Wow, that looks like fun for kids! And you have been busy. I like the yellow fabrics…bright and cheery. And your quilting looks great too!

  2. The playset and deck and gardens look wonderful! It will be so nice to celebrate it with a party. Your handsewing on the single girl is fantastic, love the pattern you chose.
