I've been working on a jumper/blouse for my great niece. I had just gotten them cut out and marked when my mother-in-law passed away. In the two months since then we've been immersed in the aftermath (mainly, cleaning out the house) I've managed to get the jumper sewn, minus the buttons/buttonholes and only because it's a CC Marie and quick to put together. I'm planning on getting the blouse sewn together (from CC Morgan) before the weekend (when we're getting the last of the house cleaned out). In addition, I've got two quilts to put together--quilt tops finished, backing and batting purchased and ready to go, three quilt tops ready to be sewn, one quilt top planned, partially cut out and in need of a few more fabrics to fill it out and several children's projects cut out and ready to sew. Plus, I usually get requests from my children and find a project I must create in between my currently planned projects. I figure none of my projects are going anywhere and there is no definite deadline (except for the fact that I need to finish Abigail's outfit before she outgrows it!), so if life (or in the case of MIL, death) happens, it's not the end of the world if something is delayed.
