WIP: Project for me and gift for my niece

We have had another busy week. I officially started my new job yesterday. I am training to be a sewing machine technician. I think I will miss the retail portion of working at my LQS but I am excited to put my brain to use trouble shooting and fixing things. The kiddos are doing ok going to the dayhome, but as with any big change with little ones we have had some trouble. Monkey is potty training and we have had way more accidents in the last few days. LB was excited to go out walking yesterday, but when he realized we were at the dayhome he bolted back down the drive way. It was hard to leave him, but my dayhome provider texted me a couple pictures over the next hour of him having fun.

Last week I worked on piecing my project for me together and now I have 4 blocks. I have figured out (sort of) how to turn them into a lunch kit, but I realized that I don't have any suitable interfacing at home. Hopefully I will remember to get some when I am at work next time so I can keep going and get this project off my to do list.

In the mean time I started another project. My niece turns 3 in a couple weeks, and Monkey turns 3 at the end of May. I picked up some flannel yardage during the last big sale at work and it will soon be housecoats for both girls. It took about 45 minutes to iron the yardage and cut all the pieces for both, and I have my grandma's serger at home so it shouldn't take long to sew it together and finish all the seams. The pink with purple flowers will be for Monkey and the blue with yellow flowers is for my niece. Both will have yellow binding and sash. Even though both girls are turning 3, I am making Monkey's a size 4/5 because she is very tall, and my niece is much shorter, so a 2T/3T size should fit her for a while.

I am linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for Work In Progress Wednesday. 
Thanks for stopping by to have a look.
