{amylouwho} WIP wednesday

My kids were all sick last week while mrlouwho was out of town.  Sick kids on the couch means lots of movies and getting busy with my project list and a rotary cutter.

And I love this interfacing I use for my bags so much that when I have the bolt out (that's right, i usually buy all that is left) I cut up a bunch - this is enough sets for 3 bags.

I was able to also get these projects all ready to sit down and sew. I had a sewing date with friends on Friday morning and wanted to be prepared.

I'm loving ruffles lately and am experimenting here.

I think I'm going to like it!

I also worked on the faux roman shade for my kitchen. I hung it up to check the length and haven't taken it back down yet to create the folds in it. I do love that fabric.

I like this WIP Wednesday report over at Freshly Pieced. Head on over to get inspired!

It's a great way to keep accountable of the projects I have going on and what can I can finish for Sew & Tell.

What have you been working on?  Maybe a mini quilt? I hope so!!

I just love how you inspire us! The ruffle fabric is adorable. What a good idea to cut out enough fabric and interfacing for several of the same projects at once.

I'm working on getting my mother's birthday gifts in the mail... and trying not to be too frustrated with the imperfections. Fortunately, she views all of my work through rose-colored glasses.

That's my favourite interfacing too! Looks like you have lots of great projects and beautiful fabrics to play with right now!

I love your shade! And a sewing date with friends sounds so fun. I wish my friends sewed!!

I have to admit, I love cutting fabric. I still have a hard time cutting fabric that I really love and just want to look at! But when I am cutting fabric for a project, I often cut two or three projects at the same time because I just like doing it.

I'm off to look at your mini quilt challenge now!

I am so sorry everyone was sick.
That's a stinker isn't it?

And your valance is so cheerful and pretty! :o)
Looking forward to Sew and Tell. :o)
