Swoon Bonnie Bucket Bag in Silver Faux Leather

Published by under Sewing

  Admittedly I’ve been on a bit of a bag kick recently. It didn’t help that I signed up for the Bag of the Month Club 🙂 But this one isn’t from that club — although coincidentally the bag for May is also from Swoon Patterns. This is the Swoon Bonnie Bucket Bag. I really […]

Polaris Bag — March, Bag of the Month Club

Published by under Sewing

  This month for the Bag of the Month Club, Sew Sweetness was the designer. The bag was a cute little hand purse which I decided to make. You may notice that I have not posted the bag for February. That’s because I haven’t made it. It’s not a bag I think I’d use, so […]

Mighty Lucky Quilting Club – February

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

For February for Mighty Lucky Quilting Club, the focus was on improv quilting and “less is more.” I hadn’t really done improv quilting before, so this was a fun exercise, although I’m not sure it’s really something I’ll spend much time doing in the future. First, I picked out some fabrics. The green is my […]

Earlier this week we got the next chapter — and the next block — in the murder mystery quilt. Grabbed some scraps and whipped it up pretty quickly. It’s so fun to see the story unfolding!

Meadow Mist Midnight Mystery Quilt Finish!

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

It’s done! I completed the Meadow Mist Midnight Mystery Quilt! Doing this quilt was such a great experience. Here’s why: I got to try so many new techniques and the instructions were very clear for each of them so I feel like I learned so much. This was my first time for many common quilting […]

St. Patrick’s Day Fabric Basket

Published by under Sewing

Here’s another little one hour basket which I made. These are so fast and easy. This was actually made as a sampler for a class I was supposed to teach. After pre-cutting the fabric for the 10 baskets, these strips were left over and I couldn’t let them go to waste so I used them […]

Murder Mystery Quilt!

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

I recently joined up with another mystery quilt: Murder Mystery Quilt. I had so much fun with Midnight Mystery Quilt (finish post coming soon!) that I was game to try another one. This one is super cool and totally up my alley. Not only are you doing a mystery quilt, but you’re also solving a […]

One of the many things I subscribed to at the beginning of the year was the Bag of the Month Club. Basically you sign up and they send you a new bag pattern each month for 6 months (and if you signed up in January like I did, you got a discount). I found out […]

More rope bowls — this time with sparkle!

Published by under Sewing

Making rope bowls is awesome. They are fast. They are fun. They are useful. And now I can make them with SPARKLES. So many wins in one project. Perhaps you haven’t realized yet, but if I can add sparkle or bright colors to a project, it’s instantly better in my opinion. This means rope bowls […]
