Sewing Challenge (Day 10)

I am feeling so successful with the sewing challenge.  I have finished nearly every WIP I had, and now I am ready to start some new projects.

I still have some baby wipes to do, those are good for mindless sewing.  Also, I have abandoned a few more jean bibs that I have cut out.  I won't need them for a good while and I already have five!  I'm giving myself a pass on those, but won't throw out the cut pieces in case I ever feel inspired to finish them.

My goals coming into this challenge was to complete some WIPs and make a needle case.  I am so proud that I have met these goals in only 10 days of the challenge.  To be fair, I often spend more than 30 minutes sewing, but the 30 minute thing really wasn't part of the challenge for me.  It is more of a guideline.  I want to sew for at least 30 minutes a day.

So, what's up for me next?  I am (im)patiently waiting for my I-Spy Squares to arrive so I can do a quilt for Miss Mary's first birthday.  It will be late, I am resigned to that.  I also have a special knit project that I just finished, so she will get that on the big day.

I want to use some of the I-Spy squares to make a Patchwork ball from the book "Seams to Me" by Anna Maria Horner.   Here's a photo of the project:

It looks like it will be challenging! 

I can get started on some cutting for the quilt and for this right away (using the fabrics that will compliment the I-Spy Squares, which I already have.

I hope my squares come soon!
