WIPs & Friday Night Sew-In plans

Last Friday I pulled out those purple UFO clothing items to fiddle with and to take new pictures; they were going to be my focus for the early part of this week, but it just didn't happen.  I have been struggling to get this white part laying down perfectly and pinned, my hands just are not cooperating with me here.  With the temperatures already getting warm here (70's-80's), my hands are starting to swell again which turns my fingers into sausages!  I am not afraid to admit I am failing on getting this set in.  Thankfully a Friend came over on Saturday to help me get it set in place and I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I was for that!  Sunday my Husband drove me over to Jo-Ann's to buy some buttons and a zipper.  He has requested that the next dress I make have a zipper as he is in charge of Sunday morning dressing of Miss Z and she is a bit wiggly!

Now much hasn't been worked on the dress as other things have come up so...mainly house-cleaning.

These are the projects that I plan to work on Thursday for the Friday-Night Sew-in.  I cannot participate exactly on Friday night as family is coming in town for the Birthday party on Saturday.  Hopefully Everyone is okay with me participating a day early this month!
Playdate dress:  Adding the Yoke is giving me fits still

Two Plus Two Blouse:  Sleeves have been inserted, everything else still needs to be done.

These are the other 3 projects I am focusing on tomorrow night:

1.  Miss Z's Birthday dress:  I accidentally stripped out the gathering threads while working on this project, tossed it under my work table and promptly forgot about it.

2.   Birthday Bibs:   Someone has contacted me to commission a couple special birthday bibs for their Grand-daughter's first birthday, I will tackle this project if I have time.  I will probably make one for Miss Z while I am at it!

3.  Finish up the HST Quilt:  It is my Scrap Challenge Project for January and I almost have the top completed.  I really want to finishing making the Tutorial for it as well, but that might not all happen in one night!
