{Made} Progress ~ 12/52

(12 weeks already? Man, time flies!)

As you can see in the title, I have actually MADE some PROGRESS this week! Unfortunately, not as much as I would like, but, hey, progress is progress!

I had one BIG finish, but can't show you any pictures, yet.

Well, okay. I'll show you one. You knew I was binding the Sea Glass quilt with Maude Asbury's Calypso Ovals in Blue, right? I love, love, love that, if you do it right, it reads as a stripe. In order to see what I'm talking about, though, you'll have to take your eyes off that gorgeous little girl of mine and look to the left a bit. :)

I'll show you more pictures next week. Of the quilt, and of both my girls! There was a lot of fun and frolicking when I was taking pictures of the quilt. :)

Here. I can show you this, though, too. It's the Sea Glass quilt all wrapped and ready to be mailed.

Oh Happy Day!

I'm working, working, working on a few things that I MUST get DONE this week.

Still Cooking
  1. The Harrison Quilts ~ even more progress, though not finished.
  2. Car Seat Privacy Cover ~ I've got the pattern, I've got the flannel, now I just need to make it.
  3. Bee Blocks ~  Back to 10, although 4 are really small and simple. I also have 4 Mod Mosaic blocks to do. And we all know that "simple" and "mod mosaic" do NOT go in the same sentence.
  4. Mod Mosaic Bee ~ March ~ For Leah
  5. Receiving Blankets for Juice ~ Umm...I got the serger out. That's a step in the right direction, isn't it? It actually takes longer to trim the flannel to size than it does to make the blankets, I've just been spending my time doing things for other people. And since we induce in less than 2 weeks, I need to get done with that nonsense and get stuff made for my own baby! :)
  6. Juice ~ Speaking of's a picture I took this morning. I'm 37 1/2 weeks along. 
Juice Man ~ 37.5 weeks

We are going to start our Easter preparations around here, and I decided that Mookie is old enough to understand the real meaning of Easter and the Resurrection. I found this "plan" (it's not really a tutorial), and we prepped the egg carton yesterday and today. Mookie is pretty excited about it. :o)

Resurrection Eggs

Mookie learned about mosiacs in school last week, and so we covered the top of the egg carton with a mosaic. (We've only made upwards of 309 mosaics since last Tuesday.)  (Seriously. Between her construciton paper mosaics, and my fabric mosaics, I'm about mosaiced out!)

Resurrection Eggs 2012

And, of course, there is QUITE a bit of prep-work to be done around the house before the Juiceman arrives on April 9th. So much. It's overwhelming, really, considering what I want/need to be doing (sewing), what my body wants/needs to be doing (resting), what my girls want/need me to be doing (playing), and what the households wants/needs me to be doing (feeding them, cleaning up after them, getting the baby's space ready).

The rest of my list will remain "on the back burner" until life settles down again after the baby is born.  Dave's mom is coming to stay with us for a bit, and she arrives next Thursday, so that will be really helpful.

I hope you have a very productive, crafty week...and I hope the same for me. :o)

I am, of course, linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for her {WiP} Wednesday Link-up Party. :)  Have a great week, and I hope you're more productive than me!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. If I could, I would come over and help you out a bit... Your belly looks too cute, I think I looked like that when I was 22 weeks or so with my second. That's definitely your best project this week, haha!

  2. How can you be 37 1/2 weeks along and look so skinny!! I am so jealous! (Here is me at almost 38 weeks with baby H

    I can't wait to see your Sea Glass quilt! The quilting looks amazing!

  3. Oh yeah, I think the rest of that to do list is going to have to wait now lol Good luck getting everything done!


What are you sewing?
