WIP Month Wrap Up

All in all I think that work in progress month was a great motivation for me to finish some projects that have just been piling up for literally years. The best news is that now that I have cleared some space from my cutting table I can get started on some new projects (without the guilty conscience of knowing that I have other work to be completed). Here is a little recap of what I was able to accomplish in February in the WIP department.

As a reminder of how this month started this is what my table looked like at the beginning of February.

And here are the finished projects from the month:

Mom's table runner. I will be making more of these in the near future!

Nick's Quilt. Ah, I can't even tell you how good it feels to have this baby finished. I love love love how it turned out and even more than that I love being able to USE it!

Ladybugs Quilt. I still feel guilty that I didn't get around to making it when Sweetpea was still in a crib so I'm sure very soon there will be a single bed sized quilt for her as well. I really love how this quilt turned out, it is so bright and cheery. Perfect from my outgoing Ladybug. This was my first time machine quilting anything of this size on my home machine and not only did a learn a lot but I had so much fun doing it!

Nursing Covers. These had been sitting for a little while half finished and I just couldn't get myself motivated enough to actually finish them up!

Valentines Aprons for the Girls.

Here is my cutting/assembling space now. Thanks to Nick for putting up some much needed shelving! I still have some work to do but I would say it is a vast improvement.

And a big thanks goes out to my great friend Stephanie who also completed a major overhaul on the appearance and functionality this blog!


  1. This is bananas! You have to immediately change your name to Martha Stewart oh heck keep your name she’ll want to change hers! Two quilts, aprons, a table runner and nursing covers! You inspire me to get crafting!


  2. Thanks K! I have to admit the first quilt has been finished for a while, I just had to add the binding. For the second quilt, I had the top pieced but had to actually quilt and bind it. It looks more impressive than it really is! ; )


I love to hear from you! Please leave a comment and I will reply in the comments section unless you leave me an email address and ask me to reply that way.
