Almost all of the quilts I made for RK…

OK, prep yourself for a lengthy post… I’m gonna show you SOME of what I’ve been up to for the past 2 months: way back in september I pieced this first one for Robert Kaufman…. The yellow sashing here is Kona Dimensions, it’s a silk cotton blend jacquard, and it’s SO AMAZING. Soft like voile but […]

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.

Fabric Giveaway (closed)

ok, I’m uploading pics for the giveaway, I promise, but in the meantime, lookit what the Bean and I made her today: (the dress, not the wings) She wants to be Tinkerbell to go with D’s Peter Pan, but she didn’t have a “tinkerbell dress.”  Now, I’m NOT anti-Disney, I LOVE Disney, but I think […]

a little school jumper…

So, obviously yesterday was 9/11, and I totally couldn’t handle it.  I hugged D so hard at one point he complained (he normally loves hugs)… It’s a crazy day for me, because we could see the smoke (and we were covered in ash by evening) from across the bay (we, my best friends and I, […]

name hunting….

Sorry for the extended absence, we went to SF last weekend, and I still haven’t figured out how to email pics in… but I have lots! Starting with these:   The night before we left, I whipped this one up, and it looks SO cute on her! It’s the same idea as this shirt, which […]

current projects…

last night and tonight: A birthday dress (with navy blue leggings), for a little girl… I cut into some REALLY pretty yellow (and blue and red) fabric from Sew Modern, and made the Bean a little pleated jumper… She’s about to be a Yellow Bird! I’m super proud of the way I lined up the […]


Warning: feel free to skip the words and look at the pictures. Just prepare to be disappointed by my pictures. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I started this blog just to keep track (albeit in a public way) of my crafty adventures. I do not strive to earn money by blogging, nor do […]
