Happy Halloween from Robin Hood and Maid Marian!

Published by under Cosplay,Dog,Sewing

Are these not the most adorable Robin Hood and Maid Marian you’ve ever seen?? This is actually their costume from last year, but since I never had a chance to post it, I figured this Halloween is as good as any :). In case you can’t tell, they’re supposed to be Robin Hood and Maid […]

Halloween One Hour Baskets

Finally I found the source. The one hour basket is a free pattern available on Craftsy. You can get it here! It’s put out by Hearts and […]

Midnight Mystery Quilt — September

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

Moving right along with catching up on my Midnight Mystery Quilt-a-long by Meadow Mist Designs, I’ve now done September. For this month, we were supposed to make square-in-square blocks. Another first for me! One of the things I love about this mystery quilt is that I’m getting so much experience doing some of the more basic […]

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

A little bit of stash candy for today.  Above is a fat quarter bundle of Loominous from Anna Maria Horner which I got from Massdrop.  I had been eyeing the Loominous line ever since I heard about it.

Pinky minky quilt for a lovely lady

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

This little blanket was being sent off to a lovely little lady who just came into the world. I’m hoping it will keep her warm and cozy — at least until her real quilt gets to her. I had scheduled some rental time on the longarm to stitch up a quilt for Miss Lily. Unfortunately […]

Rainbow Sampler Quilt

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

The previous time I was at the longarm quilter, I had a whole day because of a long weekend. So I brought about a yard of wide back fabric. You may remember this gray fabric from the backing for my Bright Squares Quilt. I marked out borders and 7 sections — one for each color […]

Midnight Mystery Quilt — August

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

I’m a little behind in the Midnight Mystery Quilt-a-long by Meadow Mist Designs. But I’m getting back on track this month! The instructions for August were for making 36 flying geese blocks. These are my first flying geese ever! The method for making them is pretty cool as you end up with 4 of them after […]
