It's hard to log a lot of hours behind my machine these days but I take every chance I get to do hand sewing.

I'm a little obsessed with these hexie flowers...

Cute feet.  Didn't have the heart to crop that out.
I've already used most of these...stay tuned to see how...

Baby showers

These are awful phone pictures but the fabric was so cute. A couple boy babies:

And a girl baby.

The assignment on this one was "aqua and coral with a little mustard. Kinda washed out vintage feel." How'd I do? I'm not sure I nailed the coral. That's one color that appears to range from orange to pink and lots in between.

Coral or not, it was fuuuuunnn to make.

Sewing for Joy one more time

Today is Joy's birthday. I never did make her a quilt when she was born so this was her birthday present.

I've been wanting to try piecing letters and a 3 letter word seemed a manageable project. It was definitely trickier than I thought but luckily worked out alright.

Happy birthday Joy! So many love and miss you.

Butterflies, scooters and bikes, oh my!

I love echino fabric.

And straight line quilting.

And striped bindings.

And gray linen.

Miss you Ann.

NOT sewing...

It's been a little sparse around here as far as sewing projects...most of my free time this summer went to training to ride LOTOJA! About 206 miles of this: 
And now I can't wait to hang up the bike and do some serious sitting.  And hopefully sewing.
