WIP Wednesday 01/19/2011

I didn't get alot done this week. I've been waiting for some reward points to arrive so I could order a new sewing machine! They finally arrived and my new machine is on the way! I have been sewing with a basic Brother machine that I got for Christmas about 7 years ago. It straight stitches and zigzags. The one I ordered is also a Brother, but it has 60 stitches and comes with several extra feet. I'm very excited about it, and I've been putting off some porjects until it gets here.

In the meantime, I've been doing a little handwork. I've been working on my Hexagon quilt again. There is something relaxing about just sitting and making the little hexis.

These are all of the large flowers I have put together.

Closer view. All of this is fabric I got for a dollar a yard at Wal-Mart years ago. I'm sure one day I'll be sorry I didn't spend the money for something of better quality, but I really like the color combinations right now.

I also have a pattern that I think works for my Kindle covers. I have a couple of fabrics selections for one more tester!

I did finish a car caddy for a friend. My first paid crafting job! I'll post about it soon!

No progress has been made on my other works in progress:
Fairy Quilt
Ladies bag
I spy quilt
Birdie Stitches Quilt (waiting for February's block!)

Finished Projects: 3
