Slow but steady progress.
Here is what we woke up to this morning, along with a two hour delay for school!! I am still working on my hexies. It's going kind of slow, mostly because Nomers requires a great deal of my attention. But I baste when I can. I feel very old-timey when I do ...

How they're holding up.
Since I am without my sewing machine right now and don't want to keep leaving my blog to fend for itself I thought I could update you all about how some of the things I've made are holding up. I'll start with the diaper changing pad ( mini tutorial here ): ...

Oh Baby!!
If you follow me on Instagram then you know we've welcomed our newest addition to the family! She is absolutely gorgeous! And so very tiny. Of all my children she is the smallest and I was really surprised by that. I thought for sure she would be the larges...

Ditty Bag & Boxy Pouch.
The other day I made this ditty bag. I'd been meaning to make myself a new make-up bag. I had won $10 to MichellePatterns and used it to purchase the pattern. This is size medium. It's cute but I decided I'm going to give it to my teenager daughter for her ...

Car Organizer.
I was browsing on Pinterest looking for car organizer ideas and came across one that I liked. After some research I found out it's a Simplicity pattern but the pattern is out of print. So I sketched it out on paper and figured out the measurements. I made a...

2014 in Review
Last year was a slow year for me as far as quilting goes. I only made seven quilts, all minis except for the triangle baby quilt . And of the six mini quilts only two of them were "art" quilts, the rest were regular wall hangings and/or table quilts. (Dark ...

Back at it.
My daughter bought me a bundle of fat eighths for Christmas and that bundle of fabric in shades of pretty purples has been calling to me. I couldn't think of much I could sew without my sewing machine though. I finally settled on hexagons. Good old fashione...

Moving!!!
We are moving soon! Going home. We are so excited but I won't be sewing anything for even longer now :/ I am nervous about my Juki being broken during a move and my art quilts getting ruined. I'm not really sure how to even pack an art quilt... I definitely...

Back to Sewing?

The third art quilt I ever made, called "Getting Along', which was an art quilt of my children walking away from me in a field, won first place in the 2013 Army Arts & Crafts Contest. My art quilt titled "Cali" got an honorable mention.
