WIPocalypse # 2 - Check In

Hello all!
Another full moon and that means WIPocalypse time.  If you are interested in joining or just curious of what it's all about click here.

Well since the last full moon not much stitching has been done.  l do have 2 finishes and a new start.  And my other WIP are still in rotation waiting to be stitched on. :) If you would like to see my finishes just  click on the finish label.  I did not want to post the pic again since I just posted it in a previous post. Also have put in couple (very little) stitches in my Snowman Carolers but not pic worthy.

 But I did want to show you my new start......

And here it is...

Sewing Stuff

I have not been stitching a lot but have been playing with my new sewing machine.  I have a baby shower to attend, and wanted to make a burp cloth, so found this great beginner tutorial from Sew Much Ado .  She creates the cutest baby items which I plan to make for my grand babies.

Burp Clothes

Receiving Blanket
This was really fun and easy to make.  I did have trouble with the curves but I love how it turned out.  I still want to top stitch the blanket.  Well until next time ....

 Happy Stitching Everyone
