WIPs With Friends

It's that time again.  Time to share the things you are working on with everyone!  
I have been madly sewing away on some little dresses. 
 I can't show you just yet as the baby shower is on Saturday, but soon! 
 I found the cutest pattern for some diaper covers and it just happened to be on sale too.
I'm thinking the dresses need matching diaper covers.
Isn't this the cutest?

Even though I can't share the dress I can share one of the fabrics. 
 Isn't this adorable? 
The fabric is called Wild Thyme.   
This dress is almost finished, just need to add the button holes and the buttons 
(I hate making buttonholes)  
Anyone out there know how to use the 3A foot on a Bernina 170 so it's automatic?  

I did manage to make some charity blocks and you can see them behind Autumn in this picture. 
 I get to turn them in at the guild meeting tonight.  
They are the red white and blue ones.

Last but not least, I saw this idea on Facebook. 
 It is an old sewing machine table turned into an entertainment table!  
GREAT idea right?
  Sometimes you find these old tables really cheap at the thrift shops.  
Often there are no machines, so...entertainment table!! 
 I am so going to be on the look out for one of these!
This one can be found on Angie's blog right here.
Go check it out and tell her Mama Spark sent you
Linking up to Let's Bee Social

OK now it's your turn to link up!

Adorable kitty! I wish I could find a sewing table to use as a sewing table!

@quiltmusings: someone suggested checking out putting an ad in a local Pennywise paper asking if anyone has free ones available.

I can't say no to a cat or cat quilt. What is his or her name? Also what is the name and manufacturer of that really pretty orange fabric?

Sharon said...

Autumn is sweet of her to let you take the blocks to give away! I did see the table on FB...great idea!

that is a really neat idea and I saw several at Restore... the Habitat for Humanity place!! said...

Diaper covers are an excellent idea. I love the sewing machine cabinet idea. The fabric is very pretty love that apricot color.

@ann Beler The cat is Autumn and I am not sure I remember the name of the manufacturer of the Wild Thyme fabric!
