WIP 05/02/2014

This is the first Work in Progress Report for February and I am sure you were all eagerly awaiting for this post to see if I finished my January goal.....Well...drum roll please...
I did it!!
Okay I finished sewing on the binding last night, but its finished and well before Christmas...lol

Since I cannot edit my pics on this laptop you get to enjoy a peek at the baby bump and my feet..lol


The wonky star table runner tutorial I followed was created by Cathy over at 
 http://cathy-blueberrypatch.blogspot.ca/2013/11/wonky-wony-little-star-table-runner.html )

I am very happy with the way the runner turned out even if it is a little more wonky than the tutorial. However, it's a wonky star table runner so anything goes, right!

Okay now for
February's Goal

A baby car seat canopy

 The tutorial I will be using can be found at
http://www.theribbonretreat.com/blog/car-seat-canopy-tutorial.html

I have the canopy made.
I started it today and it took a good 2 hours and one sweat stained shirt change, but I am happy with it. I should have smoothed it out better for the pics, but I cannot bend over that far anymore...LOL

I made one change to the tutorial in that I decided to add a second fabric to the front. I thought it would make it look a little fancier :)


The backside is just one fabric...cute little duckies



The plan for this week is to add on the straps

2014  Sewing Mission Statement
In order to try and get some UFO's done this year I am going to try and keep my current to do list small and just work on one thing at a time. I am going to try and not start anything "new" but instead take one thing off of my no progress list each month.

No progress Items to date (these are projects that have appeared on the to do list for 1 or more months with you guessed it.....no progress
Baby Burp cloths
Car seat Cover: working on it

  5. Well done meeting your Jan goal. That's more than can be said for many of us :)
    It looks lovely too.
    Sorry to hear about your laptop. Ask the tech guy if he can get the file with your favourites saved when he's getting everything else. Then you can just import them on the new computer
