What I loved about this week… So a lot of good stuff happened this week… A friend at work. I was filling in for a woman on maternity leave for the last 3 months, sitting close to the team she managed and helping them to the best of my ability while she was gone. SheContinue reading “It was a good week.”

A couple weeks ago my mom and I took a quilting class together. Seems like such a normal sentence. But for me it was nirvana. My mom’s work situation has changed a bit so that she and my dad now have weekends free (after 10 years!). So getting to spend time with someone I loveContinue reading “Wabbit!”
I hard-core covet everything that Kristyne at Pretty By Hand makes. But especially loved this needlebook. I love the colors, the bits of lace, the bit of ruler. This needlebook. For reals so beautiful. The problem is I couldn’t figure out how to make one. After a total failure of trying to figure it out myself,Continue reading “Wee Needlebook…”
So many pouches!
Yes, there are 5 noodlehead open wide pouches in that picture. And I made 8 total in the last 3 weeks. Let me explain… I made a pouch for my MIL last year that had a crossword puzzle pattern on the interior fabric. She really loved it. It was a kick to see how muchContinue reading “So many pouches!”
Grown-up 241 Tote
Earlier this year I made a cute 241 tote that I ended up never carrying (pattern here). Really just a bit too cute for me to feel comfortable with it in public. So last weekend I decided to bite the bullet and make a new one. I love the style, but the last one wasContinue reading “Grown-up 241 Tote”
2014 Quilty Year in Review
Here are some picture collages of quilting projects. Woot. Happy New Year! This was definitely the year of baby quilts… quilts for charity, quilts for wee minecraft lovers, quilts for puppies. I love baby quilts, small, manageable, can get an idea out of my head without a giant commitment. I fell one quilt short of my ProjectContinue reading “2014 Quilty Year in Review”
Ta Da Done – 2014 Wrap-Up
There were weeks and weeks and weeks of me posting my to-do list. So many projects started and in limbo. But this Fall and Winter I finished up a lot of stuff. And some of it didn’t get blogged. As a record of what I have completed, this blog has some stuff missing. The 5Continue reading “Ta Da Done – 2014 Wrap-Up”
I am very far behind on posting my finishes. I guess that means I have been sewing, not blogging. Which is cool. I finished this quilt as a living room wall hanging a few weeks ago. This is from A Quilter’s Mixology – the medallion quilt with a couple more rows and columns. It wasContinue reading “Trippy, Man!”
It is the second Saturday in December, which means that the Christmas season is in full force in my little suburb within a suburb. Right now there is a constant drone of sirens as Santa rides around in a firetruck and hands out bulging bags of candy to kids. I love this tradition – soContinue reading “Christmas-y”
I Free Motioned!
So my new Juki meant my ability to free motion quilt without crying. I just could never do it on my old machine. It made me very sad and frustrated and jealous of those who could. I practiced a few nights free-motioning. Being a not so good drawer, I am not that good at freeContinue reading “I Free Motioned!”
