WIP Wednesday

It's Wednesday already??! Where is the time going?

Despite the fact that last week was a birthday week, for me, 21 again and again oh and again plus VAT! I managed to get quite a few things done.

For example I am very pleased to say I rearranged and tidied up my work room, hubby very kindly hoovered my room with his new toy, I haven't touched the new vacuum cleaner since we bought it, not complaining mind you! Note to self, my pin board has to be hung up on the wall.

Achievements since last week

1. Tidied and sorted out patchwork room.

2. Made the two mobile phone covers, plus 2 more!

3. Made a couple more mug rugs for the upcoming Farmers Market.

4. Made two more drawstring pouches for the Farmers Market!

5. Made some more buttons...for the yes Farmers Market!

To Do 

1. Finish off my table runner, it requires a bit more quilting and finally binding, it is feeling very neglected!

I need attention!
2. Destash fabric.  I went through my fabric stash and put some pieces on the side this will be dealt with in a separate post.

3.  Make a baby ball for my nephew's baby in Australia.

4. Give the boys LOADS of attention when the market is over. 

I am linking up as usual to WIP Wednesday hosted by Freshly Pieced, why not head over and see what everyone else has been up to for the last week! 

X Have a good Wednesday everyone!


  1. I like your table runner and the way you are quilting it. Your buttons are nice, I have thought about getting one of those button makers just because I like the buttons so much. I don't really have anything to make a lot of buttons for but I just love the look of the buttons.

  2. I just fell in love with your table runner :-)

  3. Good for you, getting all cleaned up!! I know sometimes I just can't sew with all the chaos in my sewing room. That's definitely a big accomplishment! Your buttons look so cheerful and cute. And I adore the quilting on your runner so far! Happy WiP Wednesday! :)

  4. Crikey - looking good for a 76 year old!!!

    The table runner looks superb, looking forward to seeing it finished!

    Good luck at the Farmer's Market x

In case you think I am being awfully rude by not acknowledging your comments it is because I find that a lot of you are NO REPLY bloggers.

You need to change your settings and input your email address so that I can reply. There are blogs that walk you through the process but fear not it is not hard to do!
