WiP Wednesday #46

This week's going to be pretty interesting - I leave super early on Friday morning for the Sewing Summit, so that's where most of my focus is going to be this week.  I started making my packing list yesterday and got a hand-sewing project ready for the trip, though I'm considering adding another project to my Weekender, perhaps some hexagons, we'll see...


Finished this week:
Swaps for TSS - stay tuned for the full reveal on Monday!


Ryan's Guy Quilt

Ryan's Guy Quilt - finished!

Pretty Little Pouch swap

PLP - Done!!

Still going:
My first pattern - Smooth sailing here so far, I'm about halfway through the quilt top, and I cannot wait to share this one with you all!

What a cute rainbow...

Pillow Talk Swap - I'm planning to do some more sketching on the plane, but I do have a nice stack of fabric that I plan to work with.


Farmer's Wife QAL - Once I get back from the Summit, I hope to get back in the swing of things with this one!

Catching up on Birdie Stitches - I'm bringing my three blocks for the Birdie Stitches BOM that I'm behind on for the plane ride to Salt Lake City.  After that, there's only two more blocks to make before this BOM ends!
