I've actually made progress on something this past week! Woohoo! I finished the new cover for one of the two sofa cushions. I finished it yesterday just before MH got home though, and it is the cushion he sits on, so I need to put it on yet (that messy job is for either today or tomorrow). The second cover is ready to sew. I have a busy week ahead of me though, so I don't know that I will get around to it this week.

I managed 2 of 3 borders on my quilt. I am especially impressed after 1. math and 2. realising I forgot a section in the pieced border after I was 75% though attaching to the main quilt body. Had I not screwed that up I would be completely done the top by now. I should finish that last little bit tonight.
I am still deciding if I should stitch in the ditch or drive a couple hours to my aunt's and use her free motion quilter. It's a queen so that is figuring most heavily on the decision.

Excuse the size and less than ideal lighting. If I were making this for me I would have used a different fabric for the inner border, I didn't really like the fade when I put saw it against the rest of the quilt.
I've been making my DS and DH sheepskin soled crochet slippers. I cut the soles put of a Costco sheepskin rug, punched the holes and started a slipper. Part way into the first slipper I realized that the 2inch fluffs on the soles were too long, so I had to trim all of the soles down to half length. Progress pics:
