Wednesday WIP {More Planning Than Sewing}

As I admitted yesterday, there hasn't been a ton of sewing on this end, but as I was thinking about it more, I think that is also because I am in the planning stage with a lot of my new projects.  Let's take a look.

--NEW-

Forms of a Dress - a guild challenge

I don't have anything to show, but I have started sketching what this small art quilt will look like and I think I even have my thoughts narrowed down to two ideas.  And of course I am extra nervous because this is my first guild challenge!

--IN PROGRESS--

Star Struck or Map to the Stars -- star quilt-a-long by Melissa at Happy Quilting
I have a bunch more stars pieces cut out and ready for sewing. 

Naughty Notions Challenge - make a clutch using lots and lots of notions (you can still join if you like)
I started this by pulling out a bunch of notions that were easy to get my hands ... goodness knows I have a bunch more .. as I wanted to let the notions be my inspiration, since I still wasn't sure what I wanted to do. 

So far I have pulled out a pile of colorful zippers, snaps, beads, lace, floss, and some green and turquoise fabrics, and and buttons (not pictured).



I'm leaning (at the moment) toward using the hexigon print on the outside.


The more I am stewing on this project the more I would like to be sure I use these specific brown and turquoise beads.


And I'm sure I will find myself also reaching into this bag for a few of my treasured favorites (that are so overdue of being used in something).

 
You're still asking what I'm making aren't you?  Well... so far I am thinking a rounded bottom clutch and the rest will have to be a surprise for next week.

--ON PAUSE-- 

Laughing Leaves with Frieda Anderson
More the project can be seen here.  Can't wait to roll up my sleeves and dig back in!  You can also check out what I learned about using fusible in an art quilt!
Still no deadline for this one, but I am sure it will be an awesome winter project and just the right thing to pick up after all the crazy holiday sewing!

The star struck QAL looks like a good one! I look forward to watching yours unfold! I like the hexagon fabric - geometrical prints really draw the eye. I "think" you mentioned you drew a hexagon on a piece of paper - that counts for starting Rose Star Block Party ya' know! And where is our pup picture today?? :)
