WIP Wednesday

wow, no post between my WIP Wednesday posts. i must have been busy. busy getting ready to be gone for a week. busy working at my job so that i am not to far behind when i get back home.

i have been in Boise since Sunday helping to take care of my 3 year old & 3 month old nieces. my SIL had to go back for that last week of school. Monday & Tuesday she did half days but today she will be gone a little longer. let me just say...... i don't know how she does it. hats off to all of the moms out there. i think that you must be given extra energy & patience when you have a baby. taking care of kids is work & those moms who have a job outside of the home & have kids. amazing.

i didn't get to spend anytime with my machine before i left so no new updates there. i did bring my hand project down & i have made some progress on it.

i am almost done with block #5. i just have to finish the string around the outside.

the other project that i brought with me is this fabric. i need to get the templates cut out & start cutting up the fabric. this is for the class that i am taking at Sister's from Tula Pink in July. i thought it was fitting to use Prince Charming for a class from her.

its Wednesday & i will be heading home on Saturday. i don't know what i was thinking when i brought both projects with me. the days have been flying by. i honestly don't know how moms who have kids at home get all of their sewing done. i am sure that there is some secret to it that i don't know. the only thing that i can think of is no sleep.

i hope that you are all making progress on whatever it is that you are working on.

Love your stitchery, and I can't wait to see what you do with that Prince Charming!!

I am having fabric envy over here. I am in love with that fabric collection, but havn't purchased any yet.

Stitchery looks great and your fabric stash is pretty too. Enjoy your time with your nieces. It is so nice that you can spend time with them. I always waited for my girls to grow up so that I could have time to sew and now I wish they were young again.
