Whoop!! Whoop!! I am on vacation Saturday, off to Charleston for the week. Good news, I am allowed to take my sewing machine and I negotiated with the hubby ~4 hours a day of sewing. After that discussion, I decided I would layout my projects and plan out what I would take with me.
All laid out, obviously being very optimistic…
3x Triple Zipper Pouches…I am participating in the triple zipper pouch swap and I need to make the teachers end of year gifts that I didn’t do last month (due to being stuck in the airport).
Scraps for a pillow for a friend.
3-5 chair bags/chair pockets for my Etsy store.
A market tote for myself, similar to this one.
New quilt for my niece – it will be a scrappy quilt named “Through the shattered looking-glass”
City Sampler Blocks QAL which I am so behind in as I have not started. I am using Spring House…I love this fabric.
I am also taking the baby hexagon quilt to do some hand sewing in the car and on the beach. I have one more project that I laid out decided to be a little realistic. A new quilt, first time using Kaffe Fassett fabric, want to make cross quilt from simply retro with low tones. Inspiration comes from this quilt by Adrianne @ On the windy side.
Linking up with Lee @ Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday.
Wow – 4 hours a day of sewing – you are so lucky 🙂 Enjoy your holiday – your projects all look amazing.
I know how lucky am I 🙂
Way to go on the negotiations:) Can’t wait to see what you make!
Thank you 🙂
Four hours of crafty bliss……. per day!!! Nice! Looks like you have lots to keep you busy. Enjoy!
Thanks Karen, I know I couldn’t believe it when he agreed 🙂 Here’s hoping I get some great finishes done.
Oh my goodness, Michelle! You will have a busy vacation. It looks like a fun sewing one. Enjoy!
Thank you, I am there also to spend time with my family and we are looking forward to seeing Charleston.
Enjoy your holiday! Looking forward to seeing pictures of these projects when you come back! (Even if some of them are still in progress at that point.)
Will share of course 🙂
What a joy! Holidays with sewing time! I am very envious!
I love that you have packed a number of different projects. That way it isn’t about what gets finished, but what you feel like working on. The perfect holiday! Have a great time.
I know, I was impressed by the hubby too 🙂 the number of projects is due to my lack of concentration and needing to multi-task!! Thank you I will have a great time I am sure.
oh I hope you have a wonderful vacation and enjoy your time crafting away from home. I’ll be anxious to see the photos of all the wonderful projects you are able to whip up.
I will share – I might even have some time to share some during the week.
Michelle, that is MY kind of packing! I hope you are able to get to every bit of that pile. Enjoy Charleston! I’ve never been–I’ve been to Savannah at least six times but never Charleston, funny how that works out.
Me too. I am hoping to try some of the restaurants I hear they are great. I will post some photos to share 🙂
Sounds like the perfect vacation to me!
Thanks, the hubby will take my 5 year old on an adventure when I sew 🙂 Can’t ask for more than that.
That is an ambitious vacation list 🙂 You are a girl after my own heart LOL. I also have not started on the city blocks. I still want to make them but at some point you just have to say “enough WIPs for the moment” And I think I have hit that limit 🙂
