WIP Wednesday #29

Happy, happy Wednesday to you all! 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:
A 241 Tote for my friend Stephanie's birthday
Awesome bag, awesome pattern, totally making another one soon

Still working:
The Christmas projects (the tree skirt and stockings) are still going strong. This week, I picked up the fleece I decided to use for the skirt backing and stocking lining and cut the remaining pieces (skirt backing and lining, as well as the bias strips for the edges and ties, and the stocking cuffs).
I also basted the quilt sandwich for the skirt. Now I just need a good night (or two) of sewing to get all of it put together!
On the "to do" list:
Early Bird/Kitchen Window quilt
Birthday and Christmas presents TBD
Coasters for the living room
Wall organizer for the office
New pillows for downstairs bed

A few items to spruce up our new stroller
A sheet for Beckett's pea pod mattress 
A new bag and mug rug for me
T-shirt quilt 
Pants and winter hat for B
Cover for our window seat bench

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week. And be sure to click on the button to check out other great WIPs for more inspiration!
