Running on Empty

Running on, running on empty
Running on, running blind
Running on, running into the sun
But I'm running behind

Okay, maybe not behind..... but now that I have that song stuck in your head I will tell you about my current projects. Then maybe you can tell why I feel like I am running non stop.

The dress:
This is my second dress ever. The first one running without a pattern. I had a few ideas and a couple of paper bags and started from there. I am absolutly in love with making this dress, but I'm unsure as to where it should be finished. or when for that matter.
The beginning of the week:

As of yesterday: Only the skirt hemming left.

My other process of project is cats paw fingerless gloves.
I was supposed to make a tiger for a customer... but I forgot the stripes. So I have two just orange gloves. Well one finished one and one in progress.

And two things that I finished that I'm insanely proud of:

Bear ears: they're for a beary good friend:
And then there was the angry birds hat for my fiancee... I'm happy he loves it.

And this has been my week.
Next week, more projects, this weekend, a little rest.
