Overwhelmed by WIP’s Wednesday…

I had to take a blood test at the Dr this morning, and took some quilty books to look at while waiting for the hour to pass… As I did so, I reminded myself that I have several unfinished projects… I made a list… this is stuff that’s already been cut/started (but just fabric/yarn purchased/saved […]

Kona cotton solids banner

Aaaaand, we’re done time to take a break… The Bean wants more summer clothes (as does D, but he’s not as excited about it as the Bean). This banner took very little sewing (but lots of ironing), and I am inordinately proud of it. All the new Kona colors are prairie pointed around it, and […]

Little Killa quilt

This was one of the last minute quilts made for the RK booth… I got the fabric the week of market, so I had to design, piece, quilt and bind in a single day. This adorable fabric is called Little Kukla (which autocorrects to Killa on an iphone, hence the title of this post). I […]

KCWC success dress

I admit, one of the reasons I love having a daughter is so I can sew for her. I mean, those sailor pants were cool, but that boy would rather play in his underpants in the mud than sew and model… so this morning, the Bean and I made this… This dress has achieved something […]

C’s office quilt

My poor husband often pulls all-nighters at his office, witha quick 3-am power nap…. I decided he needed a small (throw?) quilt to cuddle into when he was too exhausted to drive home…. so here it is: it’s like 60×70 ish, maybe (I haven’t measured), and made from all fabric on hand (except the green, […]

A boy doll for the Bean’s boy…

My daughter’s love is a little boy called Pickle (fate, right?). For his birthday she and I decided he needed a boy doll so he didn’t always have to play with the girl dolls. She chose the Eddie doll from Wee Wonderfuls, and we made it yesterday and today. I used the scraps from the […]


Tada! Here’s my new bag!!! (Fancy setting, right? garage door handles make great bag backgrounds) somehow in the last 2 days I lost my rose fabric. Luckily last week I bought 1/2 a yard of this gorgeous Pezzy print at Sew Modern, and it was just enough for the lining, and it matches PERFECTLY. LOVE. […]


I tried 2 hardware stores, and could only find silver rings, so they don’t match the zipper, but I love the bag anyway. btw, these pics were taken in the parking lot of my kiddos’ school. I thought the sailing themed bag needed a photograph at the beach… and it was SUCH a beautiful day.

Cal-King Double-Wedding-Ring quilt, DONE.

C just sent me the pictures he took of it, all hanging and flat and well lit at his office… (it doesn’t live there, I just made him take it there to photograph it for me, as we don’t have the space to do so here) I love how ombre it is. LOVE LOVE LOVE […]

…and one for the Bean

  She got all excited about it, until she realized it was an L for her real name, instead of a B for Beanie (which, to be fair, was what she asked for; I made the¬†executive¬†decision to overrule her request, and use her real initial) I DID use her fabric choices though, even though I […]
