Some more decoration for Halloween. I worked on a Halloween quilt this year (more details on that in another post). And using the leftover fabric, I decided to make a little festive table decoration. The overall design was pretty simple. Just laid out the squares and sewed them together. After doing so, it wasn’t quite…Details
This year for Halloween we went full Star Wars. Minnie was Princess Leia and Max was Obi-Wan (at least that’s who I based his jedi robes off of. They were a little less than cooperative with the modeling this year than last year, but I think we still managed to get some decent photos. I…Details

First, I picked out some fabrics. The green is my…Details
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!
