WIP Wednesday. . .

. . .with a couple finishes.

I got some amazing mail on Friday:

Jen Kingwell BOM

I allowed myself to open the package, look at the fabric, marvel at the fact that I would never have picked them and then forced myself to put them away – there were a few things that needed finishing first.

1st up was block two of my Sarah Fielke Jazz Hands:

Jazz Hands block 2

I’m kinda crushing on this one. . .already have a fabric pull for the next block.

2nd were some extra teacups using (yes, a bit of an obsession) Sarah Fielke’s pattern. Β I have a few more planned and then I’ll consider making the teapot. . .

Teacup 1

Teacup 2

3rd was a plan I had for some BusyTown panel fabric.

Book Panel

IΒ thought this was a great idea when I snagged the panel, it’s originally supposed to be used to make a soft book. Β Nipper1 loves busyTown, but she’s more interested in books with stories etc., so I thought maybe I could do something a little different and ensure we could use these panels in our everyday. . .

I used some of the pearl bracelets fabric left over from the Bloom Bllom Plow (still not finished – oh well)

I then added some polkadot lining fabric and some more ribbon from mammafairy. . .

and from what would have been a 6 page book, turned into 4 drawstring bags and 2 pouches!

Ta-dah!

and those of you who stopped by on Monday, know that they are already being put to good use. Phew. . .that was a lot of work πŸ˜‰

Guess what, it was all done by Saturday evening and i started cutting templates. . .

Sunday i was cutting fabric and

doing a little hand sewing, oh I do enjoy hand piecing πŸ™‚ Β but I’ll save that for Friday. . .I may have even more done πŸ˜‰

    Oh you lucky thing! I love Jen Kingwell’s patterns. I have finished a top based on one of her patterns. Did you have to mortgage the house to pay for shipping?? That’s what hinders me from ordering……

      Nope, no mortgaging. . .just sold one of the kids πŸ˜‰

      They are so fun! To see them come together is very satisfying πŸ˜‰ and they are a great way to use up jelly rolls!

    the bags are so cute!

      Thanks Lia! The kids also like them, which means the odds of us putting our things away may increase. . .marginally. . .but still πŸ˜‰

Looking forward to reading what's on your mind. . .
