Here is what I have been up to, besides cooking, driving, and general domestic engineering.
|Moda LOVE Layercake Quilt, in Denyse Schmidt Fabrics.|
This post will include most of the things I sewed but did not blog about. I hope this will mean a fresh start for 2015, with more consistent posts.
I am signing up for a blog education online forum that I hope will improve my blogging and the timing of posts. It's called the 2015 Next Level Blog Challenge, and you can find it at typeapparent.com.here is the link to sign up....2015 Next Level Blog Challenge
2-23-15 Edit: HA! Not so fast! So far behind on the challenge.....Starting from today, just trying to get this post (written 6 weeks ago) up on my blog now....
The Lou Box Top, by Sew DIY. I was lucky enough to be selected to test this pattern-a first for me!
Edit: Gave it to Jenna, will make more.
Pot holders for Jennifer B. I made these to replace some I made for Jennifer more than 25 years ago as a wedding gift.
Cape for Dana, based on the Burberry cape that is so popular this year.
Edit-Made another-will post this week.
Cross body bag for me, to take to hockey games. Pattern is the Hazel Hipster from Two Peas in a Pod Designs.
Belcarra Blouse by Sewaholic Patterns. I need to do some adjustments to the shoulders and bust next time I make this. The fit is slightly off, but I like the pattern. I just need to find some time to sew up a few more of these for summer!
Laminate zip pouches. Fun to make and give!
Simple quilt for a friend, Laura.
Quilts for my nieces, Krystal and Lexi. More on these in another post.
Boxy pouches made in laminated fabric. These aren't the only ones I made, just a few of the many.
Stuffed Israel, made with daughter Jenna for Jaime. I printed the map on fabric, cut it out, and made a pillow out of it. Sorry photo is sideways-hard top photograph this oblong thing.
Jenna's stuffed Abraham Lincoln, also made by printing a picture on fabric.
Detail of my Ticker Tape quilt, idea from blogger Amanda Jean Nyberg at Crazy Mom Quilts . The instructions are in the book she co-authored, Sunday Morning Quilts.
Another shot of my Ticker Tape quilt.
This post is too long already, so I will save the rest for another day. Thanks for reading my catch-up, catch-all post.
Edit: I waited so long that it is time for another few catch up posts...look for them later this week.
