Meadow Friends

So, trying to sew while the little guy is awake is getting almost comical.

This is not supposed to be how this toy functions.
But the little man doesn't really care how things are supposed to function.
He is only interested in getting as high as he can and maximizing the danger factor of a given object.

This is the point at which the camera went flying to the side and I raced to catch the impending crash!

So, what did manage to get finished today - Baby Quilt in Meadow Friends by Deb Strain for Moda.
Great fabric collection - lots of rich colors and adorable little frogs, lizards, hummingbirds, and well, meadow friends :)
It's even named properly.
In the shop.

Happy Halloween!

Got a few things done this week and a few more in progress. A few table toppers and a bunting in Trick or Treat by Deb Strain for Moda. I quilted these in non-parallel straight lines for a spiderweb effect.
Not the best picture - but it made me smile back at it. :)
I love the quilting for these. Even the husband liked it! WOOHOO!
Patchwork bunting.
Very fun and a really quick project.
I recommend it!
These are in the shop too.

This is the story

of how I died... jk.
But it seems like it in the sewing part of my life!
Couple problems.
We moved - in and of itself not such a huge problem.
This little man learned to crawl and pull up to stand/cruise about a month ago - HUGE problem.
I now play slave to hovering over him to prevent unnecessary bruising (note right forehead damage in photo) and brain damage.
This exacerbates the first problem - STILL have not fully moved in. YIKES!
So sewing has been limited to the evenings and an occassional nap.
I'm sure he'll get some stability soon and all will be well again (with gates all over the place).
I should stop complaining, I really do feel like the luckiest mom the world to have him!
But... enough of those evenings have finally added up and I've completed a little project with the most delicious looking slice of fabric cake ever.
Couldn't you just eat it?
Or at least let the sewing machine and rotary cutter "eat" it...
I also made another in the fresh and popular grey and yellow color scheme.
I like them both for different reasons.
Both are also in the shop.
Pattern to come tomorrow.
