WIP Wednesday #23

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

It's been a busy week around here!

Started: Twenty-two (yes, 22, not just 16!) extra small Origami Bags from the Style Stitches book. Zipper garland, anybody?


In progress: No official progress on Goose's quilt, but I did get the rest of the fabric for the backing.

I finally got started on my official June block for the String Me Along Bee. I was worried about not having enough fabric to paper piece the block I wanted to make, so I shrunk down the pattern a bit, and will add a border around it once it's completed.


Completed: Seven of the Origami Bags are completely finished. Four only need to be turned right side out then have the opening closed. Eleven need the gussets made in the lining, then turned, & sewn shut. They all need to be done by the time I go to work Friday morning. :)


I'm absolutely loving these bags. I say every one is my favorite as I'm working on them, since they're all just a little bit different. I know everybody is going to like them.

Make sure you head over to Freshly Pieced to see what everybody else has been up to this week.


In other news, Goose & I decided it would be fun to give Labor & Delivery a trial run Tuesday afternoon. I spent about 3 hours there with pain & contractions, but was given a shot that was able to stop the contractions, so he's staying put at least a bit longer. I'm at the point where they won't do anything more to stop labor if it comes, but won't do anything to help it either. We'll just have to see what the next few days/weeks bring!

Until next time...


  1. Wow, Bree!! That is some crazy amazing progress!! Look at all those zippers, wowza!

  2. Wow - apparently Goose REALLY wants you to be able to stick to your Labor Day plans. That would be kind of funny if he was born ON "labor" day tho ya know... punny more than funny ;-)

    Those origami bags are looking great! Hoping to try out your zipper method this weekend.

  3. wow, I can't believe you are getting all this done, working and so close to delivery!! You are a machine girl! Love those little Origami bags - they will definitely love those!

  4. wow! love those oragami bags! Those zippers look so fun like that!!

  5. Oh I love that zipper shot! So cool, nice ocean colors! Good luck finishing those bags - you can do it! Now that little Goose needs to stay in at least until after your baby shower! Tell him to wait! LOL, if it was only that easy!

  6. Cute bags! I love seeing how you prepped the zippers--so smart.

  7. Good luck completing your bags, and hope Goose stays put a while yet for you!

  8. I'm glad your trip to the hospital was brief and relatively uneventful. Weirdly, that exact same thing happened to a friend of mine last week. Must be something in the water.

  9. Oh my, any day now! Congrats and good luck! Love your little origami bags!

  10. Wait, so why are you making all those origami bags? I saw that you finished them already, so congrats! They look great! And Goose, you're not supposed to arrive until WIP 40 (on my blog), so stay in there where you belong!

    Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )


Thank you for your comments, I appreciate each & every one I get. I do try to respond to most (if not all) comments, but that's hard to do if you don't have an e-mail in your profile! :)
