Slice of fun

Hello there! How are things going in your world today? Hopefully all good things are happening to you...

I've embarked on a new project and this is one is just for fun! I haven't had a just for fun project in a while, so this is very exciting! I might have been smiling and giggling like a silly ninny the whole time I was sewing...maybe :)

Like a squirrel with its nuts, I've been hoarding charm packs and fat eighths of 30s and 40s reproduction fabrics and stashing them about the house. Then I forget and find them some time later :)


I found this pattern on Moda Bakeshop and ever since I saw it, I've been wanting to make it! I'm making it a little bigger, a throw size rather than a baby blanket...

Can't wait to share progress updates with you and hope you have a good week!

She's alive!!!

She's alive...and somewhat kicking :) So much has been going on in my little world lately that I haven't had time to update this ol' blog here with some the projects that I've been working on!

Never fear, though, we can fix that!

My In From the Cold fat eighth bundle has been sliced into; I cut 4 5-inch squares from each eighth and have some scraps left over that I plan on making a couple pillows out of.

My office seems to have a fertility statue hidden there are five pregnant ladies! It was time to come up with something to make for them that is not as intensive as a quilt, but still something useful and handmade...burp cloths! I backed mine with terry cloth found at JoAnn's and wish that I had had some for myself!


I've given away one set and have another cut can make ten burp cloths (or 2 sets of 5) with 5 fat quarters and a yard of terry cloth...good deal if you ask me...especially when you get everything on sale or with a coupon!


Lastly, I made a skirt for a friend of mine whose daughter turned four last week. It felt really nice to make the whole skirt from my stash...something I need to do more of!

I'll be back soon with more fun for you!
