WIP Wednesday #30

Happy, happy Wednesday to you all! So, my last WIP Wednesday post was back in October. Yikes! Many WIPs have come and gone since then, so let's just move on and start anew, shall we? There's plenty on the agenda right now, so let's get this show started. (In case you're new around here, I'm following along with Freshly Pieced's W.I.P. (Work In Progress) Wednesday series as a good way for me (and you) to keep track of what's going on around here.)

Completed this week:
Lots of stuff for the B man! All of these were projects I'd been meaning to tackle for quite some time, so it was nice to finally finish them off so I can move on to more exciting things.

Fox and the Houndstooth pants (I'll have a post up about these later this week.)
Hooded towel for B
New slicker place mat for B
Oh, I also knocked out a new set of coasters for our living room, finally! Our old set was one of my first sewing projects ever, and while I still loved them, Matt was ready to move on, and I was happy to oblige. I'm sure the conversation when something like this: "What's that, love? You'd like me to sew something? Well, I'll see what I can do."
I used half-square triangles, like the coasters I made for our bedroom, and I love the colors (which match the rug in the room). The fabrics are all from the Lucky Penny collection by Alison Glass.

Still working:
Les Amis quilt: I got the fabrics in for this one late last week, and I'm so excited to get started on my first quilt of the new year. Here's to challenging myself a bit more this year!

On the "to do" list:
Early Bird/Kitchen Window quilt 
New pillows for the downstairs bed and two chairs
Table runner
iPod workout strap
New quilt for the living room (thinking of doing a sliced coins quilt)
A mug rug for me
T-shirt quilt
Winter hat for B
Re-cover this downstairs chair (pretty bad, huh?)

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week. Be sure to click on the button to check out other great WIPs!
