Last week while I was waiting during my daughter’s soccer practice I started making a list of all the projects I either had in the works or wanted to start. It is a L O N G list. This week I’ve had a little bit of time to tackle that list and I’ve been creating with a vengeance! So I’ve got a couple of things to actually share.
First up, this little guy turned one this week. Last year I made him this jungle quilt. For his birthday this week I used a remnant from that quilt to make a little ribbon-tagged carry-along blanket with green minkie on the inside. Also a new diaper clutch for his mom using a laminated fabric like the one we used for their crib bumper. They turned out pretty cute, if I do say so.
This is a new baby quilt sample for the shop where I work every once in a while. It went to the quilter’s today so I’ll share the whole quilt when it’s finished.
Also I have not one, but two quilts in the binding stage. My Strawberry Fields quilt and this one. I hope to get them finished during Project Runway tomorrow night. (Anyone else watching? Who do you like? I’m still not sure of a clear favorite this time – like Mondo last season.)
And in non-sewing fun, I made a new wreath for my front door using Vanessa’s tutorial. She makes it so easy to make it look so good. I’ve been wanting/desperately needing a stylish new wreath for my front door and V’s tutorial came with perfect timing so I shamelessly copied her. Even the color. Mmmm. I found everything for 50% off at JoAnn’s while I was trying (fruitlessly) to scope out the new Denyse Schmidt collection.
I’m happy to feel so productive. Amazing how the house staying clean from 9:00-3:00 every day opens up all kinds of possibilities. Especially if I stay away from the computer – I can get tons of stuff done. 🙂
