my last "weekend wips" post was back in april 2012, pre-erika wedding. and now i'll try and bring it back pre-holiday/weddings/babies to see what comes from it.
clearly this is just all the start of the crafting that is intended to happen between now and march of 2014, so most are just idea formulations. this photo is the fabric that i purchased back in october with lisa, and has now been pre-washed and started to be chopped. the pattern is a little confusing, seeing as there are no visuals really, or written direction. so i guess i get to free for all it and hope that it turns out well. eeps. fingers crossed, right? oh, and i feel like it is okay to post this because 1. i'm not sure if anyone really reads these that they are going to and 2. if my friends don't know what they are getting for their upcoming weddings by this point after seeing 2 other friends get married, they've been living under a rock.
the other project that is actually in process right now is currently on hold until i hit up joann's this upcoming friday a la black friday sale. i may have nearly enough for the backing, but all that remains is buying some batting & binding. that one pieced together rather smoothly (amazing how well big blocks happen) and so i'm sure (fingers crossed) the rest of it will sail together easily so i can focus on the wedding beast and other holiday gifts.
along side my crafting i've started to watch 30 rock on netflix to add some interest to the event of sitting on the floor and cutting out fabric. that has now become my new old show to be power watching (much like i did with friends, as well as big bang theory & how i met your mother to get up to date on those) as i craft through these next few months. can't wait until the semester is over, simply to not feel like i have competing things i need to do. oy! happy monday everyone.
