WiP Wednesday: Getting it Done!

I did not post last week because I didn't actually do anything. I was holed up feeling nasty sick with the pregnancy and I'm so glad it only lasted a week! I sure made up for it this week though! I made two divided baskets, a zipper pouch, seven scrapbook layouts, nineteen crochet baby hats, and I also started a Double Wedding Ring quilt for me! I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday.

I'll start off with the finishes...
My daughter will be starting second grade in the fall and at her school they want the kids to have a large zipper pouch instead of a pencil box. She was so excited when I decided to make her one out of the fabulous pigeon fabric! More about this pouch here.

I also made these two awesome Divided Baskets (pattern here) to hold the baby's diapers and things. I blogged all about them here.
Now for the works in progress...
These pages finish up my youngest boy's scrapbook for 2010. I have about this many pages for three more scrapbooks to do and I'm done for the year. I hope to get it done before the baby is born but we'll see. These took me a day of free time.

Here's my favorite from that batch. It's so fun and Christmasy!

These are the fabrics I picked out for my double wedding ring quilt. I was part of a fat eighth club where they sent me ten fat eighths a month. These are five stacks. I'm a little worried that the pink and reds are too similar but I don't really have anything else and I love the idea of making the whole quilt from my stash.

I finished tracing the wedge shaped pieces onto all my pink fabrics. There are 350 of them. With all the colors I need to make 1,680 of these tracings and cut them all out. Yeah, it's going to be a project and a half!

I also started a new batch of crochet hats for the NICU babies. See the last batch here. I decided to make a whole bunch of bases and then add the ears and bows later. It's going much faster this way. When I dropped the last ones off they said they needed more of the newborn size than the preemie size so I'm making a 3-1 ish ratio. They are very fun and relaxing to make which is always a good thing at the end of a pregnancy.
This week I hope to trace the rest of my double wedding ring pieces and finish at least the bases for all the crochet hats I want to make. I bought yarn for that purpose and I'm nearly out. If I'm really lucky I'll also get my friend to help me baste the pirate quilt so I can start quilting it. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Ooh, I can't wait to see your double wedding ring quilt!

  2. Love your divided baskets! I've had the pattern for quite a while now and just haven't gotten to it... were they difficult to make?

  3. Wow you did achieve alot this week! Gotta love the pigeons! :-)

  4. I just love those divided baskets. Great job!

  5. Wow, look at you go! Aren't those baskets fun?!?! I love yours with the pigeon fabric (love that pigeon!). Glad you are feeling better. I am just getting sluggish and haven't done anything in days, but I am hoping next week I will get out of my funk and get some things done.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a quick note!
