Now what?

I have a few too many WIPs right now.  I’m normally a one-project-at-a-time type of girl, but I currently have a number of things in WIP mode:

  • Table runners
  • Coasters (I may ditch these completely)
  • Test pattern blocks
  • Reunion quilt

And you know what I WANT to do?  None of them.  *sigh*

What I do want to do is make a pillowcase for The Pink One.  The Blue One made his own at a class on Saturday.  I have fabric for hers sitting out, so I think I should just get to it.  It’s a super quick project anyway.  She’ll be pretty happy when she has her own, even though she doesn’t sleep on a pillow, but on a stuffed dog (Floyd) instead.

I also want to start pressing and cutting fabric for my Halloween and Christmas quilts.

So, because I’m so darn indecisive, I have no project-related photos to share today.  But I did take a quick pic this morning before I left for work.  It was time to get shoes on, and The Pink One said, ‘I want to wear my star shoes.  You should wear your star shoes too, mama.’  So I did.

Pop on over and say HI to Lee at Freshly Pieced.  While you’re there, check out what the other talented ladies (and sometimes gents) are up to this week.

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes I am on a roll and then *smack* a wall hits me and I run out of ambitions to get anything done. Matter of fact I hit the same slump over the summer and made pillowcases for my daughter. Oh, and star shoes are very loved in my house too!

  2. I have those exact same star shoes! I wish I was doing any kind of sewing, but I’ve been working on replacing and painting woodwork. My sewing room is completely torn up…ugh! I want to be quilting!!

    My husband, oldest son, and I all have matching black converse, and I get so excited when my son asks for all three of us to wear our shoes. Sure, maybe it’s super corny, but I love it! I need a daughter so I can get some pink ones! 🙂

    Oh I love the matching pink star shoes…I might have to put those on the shopping list. But I know what you mean about the sewing wall. I’ve been under the weather and just haven’t felt like using my machine.

  5. IM the same way. im avoiding today! maybe i just need more coffee to kickstart me into finishing up some things
