Am I really typing a WIP Wednesday post?! It feels like it has been so long. It feels good to be back!
- The lazuring if the girl's room : I ended up going over those three dark walls with another coat of white paint last night to start over. I feel good about my decision and hopefully learned my lesson. I did go ahead and add the next coat to the one good wall, this coat was yellow. It seemed really light, I can barely even tell it's there but I painted it at night and it's dark and dreary here right now so I will wait and see what it looks like in the sun light.
- Playing catch-up : I haven't had the chance to get online much so I am way behind in my e-mails. I hope I can catch up soon.
Now some current WIPs with pictures:
K and her best friend Fi last June
Remember my friend that is having a baby soon? Well, I wanted to make some presents for her other daughter as well - who just happens to be only two days older than K and her best friend.
Using up every last scrap for another goody
It's a big deal becoming a big sister for the fist time, so I feel like that should be celebrated as well as the birth of the baby. I also can remember how much it really seemed to help K (after C was born) when she got a gift along with her new baby sister.
With Fi meaning so much to me and being so special to K, I wanted to take the time to make her something I thought she'd really enjoy. She loves mermaids so I found this fabric very fitting, and with living in Florida now, she could always use some good protection from the sun. There is another mermaid surprise for her as well, I'll get some pics of that when I am ready to package it all up.
And finally, some finished gifts for the baby:
I felt like these two projects were never going to be done because I didn't have the chance to pick them back up until a couple of days ago. Luckily, I got around to them and they are, indeed, now done.
I just can't get enough of little ones in bonnets, nor can I get enough of sewing them, obviously! They are so cute!!
So the package is almost complete. I am hoping to mail it this weekend. My friend's baby was originally due on C's birthday, April 18th but then they realized they had the due date wrong and the baby is actually due early March, so this package needs to get out the door ASAP to get all the way to Florida in time. I can't believe it's this close already! It's a bit bittersweet for me because they are like family to us and I miss them so very much, but I know I will see that precious baby and my dear friend and her daughter soon.
Thanks for joining me on this WIP Wednesday of great memories.
What are you currently working on? Happy creating!!
