My relative silence doesn’t mean I haven’t been sewing… I’m still absorbed in the Ice & Fire books though, lol!
Anyway, some recent sewing endeavors…
An Alice smock (using this tutorial) for my favorite ginger baby, Ellie. She’s turning 1 in a few days, but we’re missing her party. She also got a matching [...]
Did y’all enjoy your 3-day weekend? I sure did! On Saturday, I whipped up a Phoebe bag from some Echino & random Japanese fabric I had stashed. This is a great bag size – fits a bunch of my crap, without being too huge. The pattern is simple to work up (especially if you’ve ever [...]
I’ve had the pattern pieces cut & fused for the Amy Butler Birdie Sling for 2 years now… 2 YEARS! Thank heavens for the search bar on my blog, so I can be sure to be embarrassed by that fact.
I’ve been wanting to tote around a new (and not quite as huge as the [...]
A quick update for quilting bee blocks…
One Block Over
April – Andie’s Maverick Star block:
May – Amy’s Japanese + and X block (this was super easy to make, Amy already had the pieces cut out for us – I wish she would have sent fabric for 2 blocks!):
And finally, Victoria, a [...]
(I seriously couldn’t come up with a better title for this post, how boring am I??)
I finished up my SutK Swap package on Sunday and mailed to my partner on Monday. She’s well-known in the crafty blog world, and I love her taste…so I did my best to stalk her and pick up on [...]
I honestly had no idea… but between all of the cutting & ironing I did on Sunday, I gave my right tricep quite the workout. I struggled doing the tri extension machine at the gym on Monday, and ended up only using my left arm, the right one couldn’t hack it. I couldn’t believe it [...]
Well, I finished my Cosmo bag yesterday, and took it out to the pool for a photo shoot.
I decided it was time to stop hording my stash of 1974 by Moda’s Urban Chicks.
After reading some comments online, I decided I only wanted external pockets on 1 side of the bag, and [...]
…get waylaid by a random bout of gastroenteritis.
I had this brilliant idea on Wednesday to invite my girls Joelle & Shannon over for a sew-a-thon this weekend, with the plan to let them raid my fabric and make the Cosmo bag from AB’s Style Stitches (the Cosmo is the cover girl, BTW). That way, I [...]
So here is a picture of my new Canon Xsi camera with a very old lens attached…
That black patch on the bag is the most serious velcro known to mankind. I will know if someone is trying to steal my camera, because of the sound that velcro makes when the flap is pulled [...]
Here’s the hobo bag I sent Beth for my 200th post giveaway:
I just love the Wonderland fabric, and couldn’t cover up these cute birdies:
And part of the reason it took me so long to make the bag was that I was also working on another one simultaneously for my friend Jöelle:
