Wading in W.I.P.s


Five weeks into summer and I am just hitting my creative stride.  And I am up to my ears in W.I.P.s.  


Urban Utility II has been sitting around for the moment.


I plan on giving this lifeless sweater dress a face lift.


The as-of-yet unnamed art quilt is in a holding pattern because I need to basically take everything off from this point and start adhering the bigger pieces to the fabric so I can start sewing them down.


My top secret handmade gift exchange project is in the works.


And this is a sneak peak at a project for my son that I will hopefully be able to post later this week.


And this... *GASP* ... is what my sewing room looks like at the moment and that's a problem (BTW, don't start cleaning and reorganizing unless you can do it all in one shot because walking back in on this is daunting). 

It's a problem because I start class again tomorrow.  And I should have a minimum of 200 pages of reading and a paper to write every week.  And my internship is about to ramp up in hours.  And not yet on my WIP list is the 400 baby quilts I need to make for all the pregnant women in my life.  And the only thing I want to do right now is anything on that WIP list and NOT the readings I am supposed to be doing for the first day of class tomorrow. 

Ugh.

Wonderfully written Novel in just a few words, by a Godly-talented artist, who has a Work Room that looks like mine.............maybe there's hope for me?

Seriously - loved this!

I can't wait to see the art quilt finished.
Bummer on the reading. That stinks!

My room is looking like this very often.. as soon as I sorted everything out, I am starting a new project and the chaos comes back with full force ;)
