I'm done, sort of!

I've finished my sewing projects, mostly. I have a headless frog body to finish, but, since I didn't get it done in time for the baby shower, I have month to finish it before the baby comes.

Speaking of babies, I'd like to introduce my niece Ella. Born July 17, 2007 weighing in at 9lbs 13oz and 19 inches long. I just love those chubby cheeks!

I'll be away this week, I'm going to PA to meet her. I can hardly wait.

I'm making progress, slowly but surely on my sewing projects.

I've finished the pillow sham. Yay! There was enough fabric left over to make a bolster pillow so, now I've got to add that to my sewing list, but hey, I get paid for doing that, so I can't complain too much.

I've got the baby quilt cut and ready to piece.

The screens are cut and ready to be sewn into the proper widths, the trim has been bought and the frog is figured out and ready to be cut.

So, just to stress myself out some more, I'm going over to my friend Heat's house to help her recover the glider for her sister's nursery. In lime green cheetah print. I think the pregger hormones are messing with Joh's brains.

Either way, I'll try to take pictures tonight .....

Oh Boy! When it rains, it pours!

I've got more sewing on my plate than I know what to do with! Even better, I'm getting paid for some of them. Now the problem is time! I am a procrastinator, just call me Last Minute Mary.

Paid jobs have a due date of July 19th:

1 king pillow sham with trim. (1-2 hour project)

3 fabric trimmed hanging patio screens (your guess is as good as mine.) I've got the screens, but they need to be cut to size and I have to go buy fabric to trim with. I love the idea of the screens, but doing the math always stresses me out.

Personal sewing:

1 baby quilt for the niece (needs to be done by the 19th for the trip home to PA to meet her) she's scheduled to be delivered on the 17th.

1 stuffed frog in a tutu (due 14th for the baby shower) I've got a doll pattern to covert into a frog. Should be too hard, but it will take some time to do it.

I so need to light a fire under my own ass. I'll see how much I can get done this weekend. Then I will start panicking.
