I’m almost back.

All my Robert Kaufman projects are done, as of this morning at 3am. Now I need to turn this 2″ high stack of fabric leftovers into a million (maybe 50? I lost count while cutting) crayon rolls to give as favors for The Bean’s birthday party favors. Back soon.

(LOAD being the operative word. I had to make 3 trips!). Here’s the side view: It’s not all for quilting; some will become […]

I got all the blocks cut and pieced for the Drunkards Path baby […]

Drunk Practice

My cathedral windows quilt is a little bit challenging as a design wall, but look how […]

Raincoats, finished

  More sewing for Robert Kaufman (the company, not the dude) I still haven’t been able to choose a favorite. scottie dogs with coordinating argyle? (size 6) or maybe fun Dr Seuss inspired dots? inside and out? (size 3T) (this fabric looks most like something RTW to me, but I don’t know if that’s good […]
