WIP Wednesday

What an exciting week it's been so far with all the giveaways going on over at Sew Mama Sew.  This is my first time participating and it's just so nice to know that this has been going on for 10 years now.  It's such a great way to come across new blogs and have people look at yours.  I'll probably be talking about this is the next few post but if you haven't, then go check it out, you still have til Friday to enter all the wonderful giveaways.

I've got my Bloom Bloom POW sandwiched and pinned ready to be quilted. ***Since typing this up I've been able to finish quilting it now all that's left is trimming and binging.***  I'm determine to finish it by Friday before I leave for Michigan for my nieces birthday.

This is the back.

I also had to really crunch down on my Mother's Day gift for my mom.  I decided to make her a purse/tote and wallet. 

I started with the wallet from a simplicity pattern.  It turns out to be a clutch which I'm not sure she would use but its almost done so I'm going to give it to her anyways.  Overall the worst part of making anything from a pattern is the tracing it onto the fabric and cutting but the directions were okay to follow.  Its like putting a 3D puzzle together and you get anxious as you start to use up all the pieces as you go. The finished product is looks good.

Next up is the tote and if I have time I'll squeeze in the mini ruffle wallet.

I have lots of BOMs to catch up on and I plan to start a couple more (insanity will be my middle name soon).  I'm going to try to do the Modern Blocks QAL over at And Sew We Craft that just started this month as well as a mini Paper Piecing Summer Sampler one that will start in June.

Lets just cross our fingers for a Finish Friday post.  Have a great rest of the day people.  Join me over at Freshly Pieced for more WIP Wednesday.
