Works in Progress: Just a little bit forward

Happy Wednesday!  We were expecting some serious weather effect from Hurricane Sandy here in Virginia, but she just clipped us.  We had wind and rain and the power went out briefly a couple times, but it really was no worse than any other bad storm.  My heart goes out to all who experienced more serious devastation than we saw.

Meanwhile, in my sewing room, I’ve been working to finish the two mei tais on my list, and the rest of The List is taking a back seat.  I have one that is meant for a gift for a baby shower that is to occur this weekend, so I hope to finish it up today and get it in the mail first thing tomorrow.

Here’s The List:

1.  Road Trip Quilt Along: create back.  No progress. 
2.  Be Free Bees free form quilt robin: finish top.  No progress.  
3.  Quilt for Brian.  Minimal progress.  But not by me.  I received another quilt block in the mail from an online quilting acquaintance.  Thank you!!
4.  Mei tais.  Progress.  
4a. for Gaby #2.  Straps are finished.  I just have to do the top stitching and put it all together.
4b. for Kathleen.  Same place in the process as the mei tai above.  This one is priority for today for the above mentioned reason.  I hope to finish the other this week as well.
 5.  Equilateral triangle hexagon block tutorial.  No progress.  
6.  4×5 Bee Blocks.  Minimal progress.  
6a.  Samples: hexagon.  No progress.
6b.  Blocks for bee members (5).  I’ve pulled fabric for all 5 of my bee members.
 7. Gathered clutches.  No progress.
8.  Luna Bags: the Essential Tote.  No progress.
8a. Gracie tote

So, no finished this week.  Boo hoo.  Oh, no, wait!  I DID finish something.  But it wasn’t on The List from last week.  This cute little pouch for a friend’s birthday:
 And, I’m adding my mini quilt for the Be a {Modern} Swapper swap.  I’ve already made some progress with a bunch of scrappy little 9-patch blocks.

 That means The List remains the same with the addition of one item.
