Week 2 Sewing Challenge: WIP/UFO

When I saw this prompt on the list for challenges… I had no idea what they were talking about.

So, to save you a Google search… WIP stands for “work in progress”, and UFO stands for “unfinished object”.

After cleaning and organizing my sewing studio last week, I came across this whole bin of unfinished objects. What was crazy about it: a lot of them I remembered but there were a few in there that I had no idea were started and not finished.

Soooo this week I took a day to finish some of these items… It was an interesting journey, to say the least.

You see, two of these items were not started by me. Two of these skirts were started by my mother. I don’t know how long ago that would’ve been… Since she passed away in October 2017… It was before then. But I would have to say some of these were started in 2012 or before.

I can’t even describe how this feels. My mom and I both worked on these pieces….

I guess it’s just bittersweet.

………………………

These other three pieces I remember starting myself….but some might be as old as 2010…..

It’s so weird that I took so long to finish them. If you want to know why…..well, your guess is as good as mine…

Nostalgia.

Relief.

A little sadness.

Accomplishment.

May Sales & Auctions

I was super excited to see that the Auction House and Sales group I had been participating in a few months back is ALSO jumping back into running again!

In case this is the first you’ve heard of this, you can find RED ROSE AUCTION HOUSE HERE and the FLASH SALE ART BOX MARKET GROUP HERE

I’m not exactly sure what I will be selling and auctioning yet…but I definitely want to try.

Any chance you are looking to buy some handmade goodies?

And, IF SO, would you be willing to let me know what you’d be interested in shopping for?  This is always the hard part of my business. I only have so much time/supplies to design and create the items I sell…..

Now, it is very apparent I have less time…and even MORE limited supplies.

So….Help a girl out!

Let me know what you’d be interested in seeing!

Here are a few ideas:

  • Cloth Masks
  • Toy Storage Bean Bags
  • Girls’ Summer Dresses (comfy knit for play)
  • Girls’ Mixed Fiber Dresses (twirly fun)
  • Boys/Girls T-shirts and Tanks
  • Women’s Shirts
  • Women’s Tanks
  • Themes: Patriotic, Floral, Summer Fun, Sports, Camping……

I’m open to ANY and ALL Suggestions!
