Sewing: Projects on my sewing machine's horizon

Giveaway!  don't forget about those sweet, handmade butterflies

My last post proclaimed my love for all things stripes.  And it's true.  And since I'm the only who shops for and sews clothing they are bound to show up.  Case in point, my next project for the kidlets.  Matching summer outfits.
The top two fabrics will be the summer outfits and the bottom seersucker will be shorts for Cy.

I'm thinking of doing a pair of shorts like THESE.  And then either this dress , another dress or a short set for baby R.  Choices, choices, but there will be a decision AND a finished product.  Promise.

On top of wanting to make these outfits, I've been tossing around the idea of making a patchwork quilt of sorts, out of vintage pillow cases. 

I have a quilt that was made for me by my mother and I love it.  Now, it's all boxed up, being preserved.  The relic. 
So the next best thing is to make one for my babies.  It was made from her old pants about three decades ago.  ShOOT, I'm old.  Oh well, get over it.  And you all thought I was 20 years old with tons and tons of endless energy.  PsshAH.  
Mmm, back to reality.

Sometimes, I feel like a racehorse, or a greyhound, or whatever animal froths at the mouth waiting to be let out of its little stall so it can run as fast as it can -- in circles.  Seriously.  I wake up out of breath, knowing that my days aren't getting any longer and there is so much to do. 

Wait, what?  You've never felt like that?  Come on, now.  What's on your "me must do" list?
