WIP Wednesday #5

I had a very productive week last week...even thought I think August is rolling by WAY too fast!!  In 2 weeks, my girls are starting back to school...sigh.  We have had an amazing summer, but it's just time for them to get back into a routine.  They are definitely going to be busier...Emma is going to be in 3rd grade and will be starting to get some experience with putting projects together.  I'm not sure if I'm more excited than she is, but it's going to be fun to help her!  Dayna is going into 1st grade...she's getting so great at reading, it just makes me happy!

We are going to do our back to school shopping this weekend...again very excited!!  There is just something about that whole department in the store that always makes me giddy...I know that's crazy!

But onward to quilty projects!!  I have 2 more quilts finished this week, whoohooo!!  I finally finished the binding on my New Wave quilt and a Valentine quilt.  And I haven't been able to get pics of them since they were finished, so that will have to come later.  Lots of people have asked about the New Wave quilt pattern.  I found it here at OhFransson and then the acrylic template here at TabSlot on Etsy.

New projects started include my Dresden Plate quilt.  I have just pieced the plates and that's it for now.  I have a sweet friend of mine with her "baby" going off to college soon and I need to get that quilt done, so for now, that will be my focus.  I just bought all the fabric last night...and he leaves in 2 weeks.  Why do I wait until the last minute???  I will post pics once there is something to post about :o)

Lastly, because I just can't seem to sit back and enjoy doing nothing, I have taken up hand piecing hexagons!  They are super easy and fun!  I just started a couple days ago and already have 40 done.  I am sure I will need 20x that, but that's okay.  Gives me something to do in the car to and from work (my husband drives :o) and to and from wherever else!  I just take my little basket with me and sew my little heart out.

aren't they cute!!

I think I might have some kind of ADD or something...I just can't let my hands be idle.  Even when watching a movie with the hubs, I still feel like I need to be multi-tasking.  Does anyone else have that problem??

This week's stats:
New projects -3
Completed projects - 2
Currently in progress - 11

Linking up here at Freshly Pieced!  There are some gorgeous quilts people are working on...puts me to shame!
