Teacher Gifts

I left these to the last minute, BUT I sent these pouches to school with the girls today!  It's their last day of school "for the year" as Ella likes to point out.  I had the girls help pick out fabrics for their teacher yesterday, and spent the evening paper piecing 6" blocks.  I then [...]

Weekend Sewing

By |November 15th, 2011|finished project, sewing|21 Comments

Over the weekend I put a new die to use!  I've slowly added to my die collection, and most recently ordered the diamond die.  Looking for a fast finish, and a different way to use the diamonds, I settled on this table runner! For the picture I hung it on the kitchen wall, since table [...]

Pillow Talk Swap :: Outbound

Here's what I had fun working on over the weekend - Did I mention that fall is nearly over here in the mountains?  The trees are looking bear, and there is a definite chill in the air; as in I have already scraped my windshield a few times! The fabrics include a wide variety of [...]

Owen was treated to a pile of Pirate fabrics, which clearly he loved, just not enough to smile for a stranger for - haha!  He spotted the pirate ships, and skulls in the bolts at Riley Blake, and claimed the floor space just in front of them while I chatted about Sewing Summit with Jina [...]

Accuquilt and My New Clutch!

By |September 13th, 2011|finished project|13 Comments

I had treated myself to a new die for my Go! cutter about a month ago, but didn't pull it out until this last weekend finally.  In the midst of making jam, and keeping the laundry moving (mostly) I was inspired to make this little clutch!  I decided I needed a clutch to go along [...]

After spending time prepping the pieces for my new bag, I couldn't let it sit!  Over two days I found the time to put it together and completely love it! It's huge - measuring 17" across the bottom.  My plan with this bag, is to take me through The Sewing Summit weekend, with anything important [...]

This is the big girl pouch made in the same manner, as the bitty pouch Emmalie and I made yesterday.  I'm participating in the Pretty {Little} Pouch Swap on flickr, and really loving all the pouches that are popping up in the group!  I made this one with my partner in mind, and I'm really [...]

Weekend Sewing

Over the weekend, I did a little sewing.  I had wanted to make a better pouch for my new iPad, and I'm pretty happy with this one! I didn't have a pattern, just a few images in my pins on Pinterest that I used for inspiration, so that added a little frustration at a couple [...]

Happy Memorial Day!  I hope you are enjoying the day with family and friends, honoring our heroes who serve! Thanks for your concern for Emmalie, she is on the mend, my only trouble now, is getting her to take it easy, so that her lungs can fully heal!  She's a tough cookie! Yesterday I took a couple [...]

Just barely, but they are done! You know how you think you know how a day will go, then, everything goes differently? That was my day yesterday.  Joe's truck needed work and he was stranded a half-hour away...off we go...Emmalie came home from school with a worse cough than she went with - thankfully I [...]
