WIP Wednesday: the one before the one with the house

Not too much getting done this week. Mostly packing my fabric away:

So much fabric, so little time!

A project for See You In September:

See you in September

And sewing together a bunch of Cotton+Steel scraps for...something. I don't yet know what.

Thrift? Or obsession? #cottonandsteel

The birthday swaps are still coming in - I think I have one, maybe two left to arrive. But they've all been very useful and lovely, and most have been beautifully and carefully made! Such a talented lot of sewists!

#ahbcparty3 from @chambsvacc: shoulder bag, unfinished block (for use in one of my own projects), and adorable dog card! Thank you so much!

From @peaches1003 (getting it right this time - I hope!): pouch, sewing (make up?) roll, lanyard, and cutest card ever! #ahbcparty3 #aussiehandmadebirthdayclub

Trivets and ribbons and charm squares, oh my! (Thank you @peaches1003!) #ahbcparty3

Birthday swap from liannedgong

With every present is coming a handful of fabric scraps. I'm thinking that I'll patch them all together into a single piece, and use them in a bag - probably nothing more than a basic tote - but it can be the "birthday scrap bag" - made from the scraps that my birthday swap girls gifted to me!


We take possession of our house next Monday, and pretty much the first thing I plan to do is to go over and take photos. Possibly with quilts. So excited! Or terrified. Possibly both?

So what have you been working on this week? I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.


  1. Lots of Lovlyness . the squares are beautiful

  2. Best wishes as you move into your new home

  3. I would love to know more about that little grey "purse" in the 2nd picture of your gifts. Those little twisting pops of colour are just beautiful. I feel inspired to try something similar.
    All the best with the packing and the hand over of your new home. I hope the moving and settling in all goes smoothly.
