WIP Wednesday

I kind of feel like this week flew by me way too quickly. My Easter weekend was spent doped up on allergy medication and thus sleeping a lot, as well as some visiting with Chad's mom and brother when they came over to our house. I also was working on getting my sewing room organized and only have some things to hang on the walls before it feels done. It is far from magazine worthy because even if I made it that way, it just wouldn't stay. Photos will be coming soon.

I did receive my swap items from the Wild Olive Stitch Swap at the end of the week. It was so windy over the weekend I didn't photograph them to share until today.

Wild Olive Stich Swap: Received

I got this beautiful hoop from Leslee - just look at the teeny foot prints from the bird! She also made a small pouch and included various trims. I always get nervous in a swap that I will get something I don't care for, but so far, I have loved everything!

Now onto my update for the week. Linking up at Freshly Pieced as always.


Nothing as I spent time organizing instead.

Progress Made:

Sewing Machine Cover - I did manage to get a few more hexies sewn on. I'm still not sure how big the hexie portion is going to be and should decide that soon.

Nothing! At least not school related as I will be using my sewing machine/hand embroidering some pieces for final projects.

I have a month left of this semester and will be working on projects for each of my studio classes. I will go more in depth this weekend with my weekly update. Because of this, I may be scarce around here. I'm still catching up on your blogs and need to tackle my email soon too.

Hope your Wednesday is treating you well!
