- AM/PM pre-school quilts: The tops were blogged here, and since then I've been to the class, had the kids put their name on a leaf, and on a strip of fabric for the label. Very good progress!
- Mom's placemats: Only two of six are pieced. Strips pieced and segments cut for another 2. I'm okay with that because now that I showed them to the preschool classes, they're a December project.
- Hallowe'en costume: Progress! I plan to add some "wings" along the arms. But oh my goodness. That fun fur? Sheds. A LOT. Amy warned me but I'd already bought the fabric. Ugh. The stuff is in my nose, on my carpet and all over my cutting mat.
Cute story: we've been reading quite a bit about penguins lately, and when I was chatting with The Child about the costume, she announced she wanted it to include "an egg in my brood patch." On the off chance you haven't been studying penguins lately like we have, it's a pocket of sorts where an Emperor Penguin keeps its egg warm, just above its feet. I told her the costume didn't include a brood patch and then - get this - she brightly suggested that she wanted an egg stuck to her foot. As you do when you are a penguin. Obviously. Hilarious. Of course I said okay to that. I now have to make an egg-shaped something to attach to the bottom of one leg of this costume.
- Stash Trad Bee: Dunzo!
Feeling quite satisfied with myself, I am. Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and The Needle And Thread Network.
