With business meetings taking up a good deal of time on my schedule this week, I feel a little out of sorts trying to keep projects moving forward. It feels like they're all stuck in Limbo-land.
For example, I may have gotten carried away with Sweetpea Pod production. I mentioned this cute little pouch pattern in last week's message. They're really fun to make and to gift. I had some new fabric and some pretty scraps that seemed well-suited for this project, so I cut them up and prepped them for Pea Pods. I don't have as much time this week for daily sewing, so I'm happy to progress one itty-bitty step at a time, production style. Here they are lined up for a middle step below and on the left. On the right, the scraps and zipper cuttings are almost too pretty to throw away.
It's easy to get carried away . . . !
The blue and brown pineapple quilt is waiting patiently in Limbo-land for final quilting steps. It's almost done, and I can't wait to finish it!
My annual Christmas card ornament production is underway, but stalled. I'm trying out some new-to-me fusible threads to make the construction easier. I've got about a dozen pieces stitched. The next step is adding the backing and a twisted loop to each one. The steps were time-consuming when I made the first prototype, so I hope I can find some efficiencies if I make more than one at a time.
It's still wa-a-ay early for this project. So, it can afford to wait in Limbo-land for now.
Even though it feels like these projects are stalled in Limbo-land, they're still rolling around in my brain as they wait their turn at the sewing machine.
