WIP Wednesday - I'm on a roll!

Things are super stressful at the office, so I need to relax when I get home.  And how do I relax when I'm home?  I sew of course!  :-)

This week, I got lots of stuff done.

I already blogged about the Drop pillow which was on my to do list for December and posted a picture here.  I started quilting Hubble and I'm hoping to be able to finish it this weekend.

Another thing on my to do list for December was my nautical 241 tote bag.  The pieces were cut a few weeks ago, but I ran out of interfacing so I couldn't finish it.  This week, I finally bought what I needed and finished the bag!

I decided to use the same fabric for each panel as well as the exterior pockets, but I think I like this pattern better with an accent fabric.

My lovely daughter Marianne modeling the bag for me!  :-)

So the only thing left on my to do list is the baby quilt for my nephew.  I ordered the fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop and it arrived in the mail today.  So I'll be cutting fabric tomorrow night!

Since all of the items on my to do list for this month were done (or on hold), I decided to get started on a new pillow.  I've been wanting to make another Carpenter Star block for a while now so I took out some Sherbet Pips jelly roll strips I got from my friend Karen and got to work.

I plan on making a zipper closure for this pillow - my very first try at a zipper on a pillow.  We'll see how that goes!

And what have you been up to this week?
