WIP Wednesday: Yarn!

It's been two weeks since my last WIP update and I'm happy to report that projects are, in fact, in progress. First up is another adorable pair of pants for Lila. These are so fun to make and this pair happens to match one of her onsies. Bonus! I found the heart fabric on Queen street at one of my favourite shops. It's one of those places that has narrow aisles and bolts of fabric stacked on the floor and on every available surface. They also carry zippers in every length and colour imaginable.
I've been hard at work on my Stacking the Odds quilt. It's Queen sized and the top is done. It's been a challenge. You can read more about the process of piecing it here.
I'm continuing to work on Lila's Tula quilt. It's been basted for a few weeks, but I was waiting to buy my new sewing machine before attempting to free motion quilt it (more on the new machine soon!). So far I've just been FMQing a practise sandwich, but I'm going to start on the real thing tomorrow.
Finally, since Lila often doesn't allow me time to sit at my machine, I've picked up my knitting needles again. My two pairs of hand knit socks have worn thin, so I've started a new pair. Nothing fancy pattern wise, just simple toe up socks with lovely Koigu sock yarn. I'm pleasantly surprised at how quickly the knitting is going. I remember socks taking me forever to make, but at the rate I'm going, I should knock these out rather quickly.
I hope you are making progress in your crafty endeavours! I'd love to hear what you are working on, some please do leave me a comment and share your progress with me.
