I pulled out a work in progress that is more than a year old and finished it up. I originally didn’t know who it was for, and then I realized it was too precious to give away and finished it up for my own little girl.
I can’t love the colors more.
There was a specific request to have a ”cozy” satin binding. Which I think was the perfect solution.
This is our cat Emily. Joining in on the photo shoot.
Thank goodness spring has finally arrived. This quilt was waiting and waiting to look seasonally appropriate!
Don’t take pictures in full sun. Quilted wrinkles are so distracting. Noted. and moving on.
I wish the green popped a little more, but live and learn…
Don’t judge me too harshly on the binding corners, I was in a rush to get to the baby shower before it was over!
Is now the time to confess I have been completely locked out of my flickr account?
Is there some other way to use flickr without a yahoo account? I got a yahoo email specifically to join flickr and had my account name stolen TWICE. I refuse to go through the hassle of reclaiming it again. Surely there is something new and wonderful everyone is using to share their sewing? Suggestions?and by the way, I sewed this cutie skirt for the cutie girl last night. Happy Spring!
sneak peek- I am working on a quilt for a circus themed baby room!
I am currently in the running for mom of the year.
one groovy girls dress at a time.
It was a very good Third Birthday Party, so good I have to depend on other people for pictures! A friend caught this one, my darling on her way to egg glory!
The weather was amazing, 60 and sunny, considering we had snow just 5 days ago it was some serious good luck.
Bunny ears for everyone! (thanks to another friend for this awesome pic)
Some general hanging out, and if you look there in the distance you can see the yellow pennant banner I sewed from some scrap electric yellow silk from work. I managed almost 100 feet of banner and it cheered up our still naked trees.
I have to thank pinterest for this cake genius, 2 bunt cakes, quick homemade butter cream icing and some M&M decoration. That make is a roughly $10 birthday cake that fed 25+ folks.
There was some more pinterest food goodness. This is the one and only picture I took at the party, proud parent that I am! Chocolate dipped peeps, white chocolate nests with chocolate eggs, peep rainbow, goldfish to look like carrots and individual fruit cups. We had pulled pork sandwiches for the adults and some lovely strawberry lemonade sangria. I have a feeling that this party will stand out as the best one for a while…
No before picture, only an after picture this time.
Just imagine 1980′ s era pine paneling and some mis-matchy curtains and a weird gap between the floor and wall. For 7 years!
Some kind babysitting from my MIL let the baseboards and cornice molding happen (thanks bec).
I found the floating shelves on clearance and whipped out curtains late last night.
You can’t see my blue tile back splash here but I found my very specific color scheme (yellow and blue with red accents) for the curtains here at equilter. Only when it arrived did I realize it was a Laurie Wisbrun design and now it totally makes sense that I love it!

In a frenzy of spring cleaning I decided to take down some 1980′s knotty pine paneling and re-do the kitchen walls. I stuck the kiddo on the kitchen table to show off this just finished dress against the clean empty wall, something there isn’t any of in our house normally.
I bought this fabric in Barcelona, before this girly was even a thought in my head, and stashed it away for a unknown project.
It is a lovely lightweight cotton that is top stitched with a lovely thick white embroidery and has a cotton lining that is a delicate backer to the embroidery.
The fabric was well suited to this little project, sweet little elastic puff sleeves and it is somewhat formal without being too crisp.
The pattern was super great, just enough fullness in just the right places. I made a big fat hem in case I might be able to let it out and get a few more months out of it later on.
A quick present for a cat lover and my first tumbler project.
I always did like the blue and greens…
