gloomy, rainy, cold, awful day. with happy quilting.

What a gloomy, rainy, cold, awful day and still no banner border... grr... a few new fun things did get finished instead. I had to distract myself from the dismal outdoors. Already posted too!
Baby quilt in femine florals! Fabric is Nouveau by Sentimental Studios for Moda.

Baby Quilt in surfer colors... also Nouveau by Sentimental Studios for Moda.

And a runner in Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey for Moda. Simply delicious... maybe I shouldn't post this one. Eventually I should decorate my own house too. HA!

Update: the coasters are done and have been added to the shop, the banner must wait another day. I just think these little fabric coasters make fabulous hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, etc. And they are a great little creative outlet for me to try something on a small scale. Make that a very small scale. The husband was watching me do the piecing on these coasters and kept asking, how are you going to do anything with those tiny little pieces? I just kept telling him to wait until I finished at least before asking questions. We all know that will never happen. :o)

A little sneak peek of the Christmas banner... maybe I'll finish it tomorrow, but I might get side tracked by a coaster set in the interim as I need to go buy some fabric for the binding/ties. Here's to some happy holiday shopping!

A new project swimming in my head...

Do you ever have the creative bug just get you and make you want to stop whatever you are doing just so you can make the idea floating around in your head? It seriously has me tonight. I'm trying to finish up some Christmas presents for the family but my head is screaming to make a Christmas banner. Unfortunately I'm a "finisher" and hate to see quilts go unbound for weeks so I must get these presents done first. Back to the serger... but hopefully I'll have something new to show you in a day or so...


So in honor of the holiday shopping sales, I've decided to have one myself! Stop by my shop to enjoy some great savings on all my quilts! Stock up for Christmas gifts or your own stuggle stash. This week holds lots of big sewing plans... I'll update later. Thanks for reading and happy shopping!

Note: Sale ends Sunday Nov 22 so hurry on over!

new projects about to hit the floor... or the ceiling.

Swing by the shop if you want to see the finished products of the last two weeks of furious sewing... and if you just can't live without these well, you can have them too... also, a pattern for this quilt (in Panache by Sanae for Moda) is currently in the works.
