WIP Wednesday Week 35 8.29.12

This week I didn't get nearly as much done as I would have liked. Thursday night I cleaned house for my sewing studio tour on Friday. Friday I had friends Gaila, Emilee, Heather, & Kay Lynn over to tour my sewing studio and learn how I use my frame. We practiced on the frame and then sat around and visited and watched Rosalee and Mikaela play. I did get a bit of handwork done on a baby quilt, but that was about it.
One day at work last week I pulled out my hexi's and worked on making a liner for my water cup. I have the top flower all together and the bottom one laid out so I can work on it. I think this will cover the whole cup.

At the beginning of this week I worked on laying out the Ditto baby quilt I am making as a sample for the store. I had already finished the blocks, but needed to lay it out. I didn't really care for the red, so I waited to see what Tammy wanted and she liked it, so I went with it and last night I sewed the top together. I still have to do the final pressing, but so far it looks pretty good and almost all the points match.

Monday night I also went through my project book and figured out my UFO's, mom's UFO's and then the projects I have the fabric purchased for, but haven't started. I'm teaching a UFO class in October and decided I needed some projects to start working on the whys and how to's of how to finish up UFO's.
I've finished 37+ of mom's UFO's.
I still have 15 UFO's+ of mom's UFO's to finish.
I have 21 of my own UFO's, though a few I would consider WIP's.
I have another 18 projects I have purchased the fabric for, but haven't started yet.
