Hello...Is it me you're looking for?

I have some great projects I have made and more to put up over the next few weeks.  I am working on some bags for the upcoming summer and fun events that we have planned.  Here are a few things I have done and I have some pillowcases to share soon!

The clutch was made from the book Bend the Rules by Amy Karol.  It is the Artsy Clutch.  It literally came together in about 30 minutes.  I used rick rack instead of elastic for my clutch.

 I am still trying my hand at quilting.  This quilt was made for my Big Boss' 20 year old daughter who was just diagnosed with cancer for the second time.  We all signed the back of a patch to show our support and love as she goes through treatment. I wanted to make a lap size quilt so it was easy to take to appointments and could give her a little coverage during chemo treatments.  I found this quilt pattern on the Moda Bake Shop website. If you haven't looked at that site: go here and look!  WARNING:  you will lose track of time!!

More to come soon!  I promise!!

When sewing gets dangerous....

I have had a heck of week with sewing.  I ordered an acrylic sew steady table as my birthday gift from my husband and it was cut incorrectly.  I then stab myself with my seam ripper and then run over a portion of my thumb with my rotary blade.  My husband suggested a break from the sewing room. I did take a few days off, but plan to head back in soon.  I have some updates of some projects I have completed to share this weekend with you.  I am hoping to finish the top this weekend to a picnic blanket I sketched out to meet my family's needs.  I am considering selling it as a PDF or maybe even cranking a few out for sale in my Etsy shop.  We will see....... it all depends on if I have any limbs left after sewing this weekend :)

In honor of my break from the sewing room and sewing tools, I am having a sale in my Etsy shop.  There isn't a whole bunch in there, but everything, including custom orders are 25% off.
