And for one I haven’t made, but must make soon. I was baking cookies the other night & realized how essential an apron is (especially when you have the bad habit of wiping your hands on your pants!)

Paper-Pieced Doll Quilt

I’ve been in love with paper-pieced hexagon quilts for some time now. I started some small hexagons when my sewing machine was in the shop last time, but it went nowhere since they were small, I have a short attention span, and a large quilt seems like quite the task.

My sewing machine is yet again in the shop & I once again thought about hexagon quilts. Tatyana got a new baby for her birthday & asked for new clothes & a quilt for her. So I am going to try it & stick to it! All my paper pieces are cut out & ready to go!

Sharing is caring

I have a whole folder in my favorites for craft related things, most of them being tutorials. This is my “I will make this someday” folder. I am going to share a few of these with you periodically, in hopes that you will also make them someday. 🙂

These are by far 5 of my absolute must make favorites:
Soft Doll
Buttercup Bag
Wild Flower Pin Cushion
Boxy Cosmetic Bag
Robot Tooth Fairy Pillow

I hope you all enjoy these & I will post more next week!

A Day (and a half) in my life

I decided to document a day in my life through pictures. I chose a particularly busy day to do this, so there are a ton of pictures. I started taking them on Wednesday, March 11th. I am also including all the pictures I took on Thursday, March 12th because it was Tatyana’s 8th birthday!

Pretty Pleated Clutch

I’m not a big fan of clutches, but I am a huge fan of pretty little things like puffy pleats, flowers, and satin.
That’s how this pretty little thing came about:
new039-1
new040-1
Next time, I will interface both fabrics, not just the lining (or use stiffer interfacing). I don’t like the way the middle droops when closed.
I will probably never use this, but it sure is pretty!

And the winner is

Carol! I only had five people sign up, but that’s ok! I went old school & put all the names in a hat. Carol, I sent you an email this morning.

Project Threadbanger

Over on the Threadbanger Forum there’s this super fun activity called Project Threadbanger!!
Click that link to see this month’s challenge! You can join, too!
I am currently working on this month’s short challenge, and it’s going to be awesome! I’m a little intimidated because I know there are some amazing jewelry makers on Threadbanger, but I’m happy with the way my submission is turning out. Estatic.

Too bad I can’t share it with you until the end of the month :/
