A couple of things...

I never think to blog about my sewing projects any more. I usually post them on Instagram, and forget that I even have a blog. But here are a couple of things I made recently...

This is a little (22" x 26") wallquilt/tablemat I made with a Sandy Gervais Giddy charm pack and the Cherry Season pattern. It was a birthday present for my dear friend, Nancy.


My niece has been hinting that she would like some sunsuits for her daughter (the one I made the Shy Little Kitten quilt for). I downloaded a PDF pattern and used some fabric I had in my stash, some left over from the Hungry Animal Alphabet quilts I made for the boys' first birthday and some I'm not sure where it came from. The downloaded pattern was kind of a pain to assemble, and the directions were a bit different than one would find in a purchased pattern, but I muddled through and must say it turned out very cute! It is fun having a little girl sew for again...

Still here

I can't believe I haven't posted anything here for over 1 1/2 years! It's not like I haven't been on the internet...just haven't been in the blogosphere, mine or any one else's. Seems like Facebook and especially Instagram have taken over as quicker and easier ways to share. I will try to update things here more often and maybe even give it a facelift.

Here is my most recent quilt, Yellow Brick Road done in The Shy Little Kitten fabric out of my stash. I must have bought it before I knew I was having grandsons, because it has a lot of pink in it. I made it for my grand-niece Heidi's first birthday and sent along a copy of the book.  I just backed and bound it with pink Kona from my local Hancock Fabrics and did some parallel lines of stitch in the ditch. One of these days I am going to learn to do something fancier than that!

My next project is to assemble some Kaffe Fassett blocks of the month I made several years ago and recently found while cleaning out a closet...stay tuned!
