Things have been puttering along in ol' Felicity Quilts Studios in lovely (but often rainy) Vancouver BC.
Stuff I've Done Since My Last WIP Wednesday Report...
Ballet Bag finished.
Sea Glass on Sand finished.
Halloween mini and placemat - two finishes, actually (but only one made it to the In Progress list).
Frugal stitching I mentioned last week (but they don't count toward my stats!).
And another Barcelona A-line skirt. I used stretch denim, omitting the zipper again, and it is super comfy!
I left the bottom hem "unfinished" because I kind of like the look of the serged edge.
Next time I make this skirt, I think I will take in the waist or try a smaller size, because the waist is swimming on me despite it fitting relatively well in the hips region. Or maybe I will try altering the pattern with some darts? Or maybe I will whip up the other A-line skirt pattern I bought recently for $3 - it has darts. Decisions, decisions.
Up Next on the Worktable...
Quilting! I asked for some advice ages ago, and I realized my on-hand thread colours was severely limiting my creativity. I remedied that this weekend (Aurifil vendor at the quilt show I attended), and now I have some matching thread.
I've been sketching and practicing new FMQ patterns (thank you, Angela Walters book and Craftsy class!) so I'm ready to go. Wish me luck!
This Week's Stats:
New Projects - 0
Completed Projects - 3

Busy but happy, that's me! I'm linking up at WIP Wednesday and The Needle and Thread Network - please come by and check out the massive amounts of creativity happening all over the internets!
