WIPs, Part 1

Not all that long ago (end of summer, maybe?) I got the urge to sew stuff. I was inspired by Threads and Sew Stylish magazines but then got really turned on when I started reading all the amazing craft blogs. I am proud to say that I did act on and finish SOME projects that inspired me on these sites. Some on, yes...completed, no. And here they are:

Used a pattern from Tiny Happy's Shoulder Bag Tutorial. I started this in September.

Poor Pointy Kitty! All sewn together but for your little back piece! From free Wee Wonderfuls pattern (among many others available through this link from the generous Hillary Lang).

And some little trees from Little Birds Handmade. I did finish three of these but wanted to make more for gifts...maybe next year.

I'm hoping that presenting these Works In Progress here will urge me to complete them. I can't have this post just linger on without a conclusion, right?

I love the little kitty! Such great fabric choices. Sewing stuff is fun, isn't it?

I so wanted to get some soft trees done this year too. I didn't quite make it though. Your Pointy kitty looks fabulous in the pink fabric. Very cute.

So nice to find your blog. I am a CT quilter and crafter too. Also, an avid Red Sox fan. Just like you I have a link to there site on my blog. I love the kitty you made. I have 2 cats as as well a 20 pounder and a 9 pounder and they love to keep me company when I am quilting.
