Sewing ninjaDone!

Making progress:
Polka Dot quilt for the munchkin's 3rd birthday - Stuck.  Out of Kona Ocean.  Waiting for more to come in the mail.  Argh.  Why is that my LQS deems Ocean to be a non-necessary color to stock???  Thank you,!

Spicing Up the Kitchen swap - Almost done, finishing up the second part of my swap package this week and I hope to send it off this weekend!

Make Mine Modern swap - I totally know what I'm making here, yay!  I think I can finally start to bring my project from the sketchbook to the sewing machine.  

Super special pillow tute - Almost done!  This has been a lot of fun...
3x6 Bee blocks - I've finally collected my fabrics for these blocks and put them in their folders, and I started assembly last's my personal fave so far...

Need to get a move on (a.k.a. no progress):
Robot coin twin quilts - Need to make some backs and quilt these up pronto - sounds like the twins will be making their arrival in the next few weeks!
Margaret's Hope Chest birthday quilt
Urban Home Goods swap - I'm still Flickr-stalking my partner, trying to figure out what to make for her.  I can tell she's going to be a challenge.

do.Good.Stitches February blocks - Yes, I've joined another quilting bee, and I'm really excited about this charity bee.
