I took a semi-break from sewing and a break from blogging for the last few weeks, but plenty has been going on . . . like catching up on all the stuff I didn't keep up on while I was pregnant and caring for a newborn (balancing the checkbook and cleaning, to name a few.) We shuffled rooms to separate fighting children, which also means the sewing corner got shuffled too. But plenty was happening on the sewing front . . .
I taught my son a bit of sewing (shh, don't tell anyone . . . he's embarrassed . . . as am I by that mess in the background . . . it has since been shuffled and organized.)
Here's what he made . . .
I saw this idea as a Darth Vader Pillow. She used these pixelated pictures called iotacons. Spencer wants to make 12 of the characters to make himself a Star Wars quilt.
I've been making several of these . . .
No, silly, not babies . . . bibs.
I'd like to say that I finished this quilt . . .
. . . but I didn't. I was tired of quilting it, so I trimmed up and bound the 3/4ths of the quilt that was quilted. Please tell me I'm not the only one to do this.
AND . . . the perils of having 2 machines in the house . . . I can start another quilt while one is stuck under the needle when it is half-way quilted. I need intervention!!! A sweet little baby quilt for a sweet little future-niece from Lollipop by Sandy Gervais for Moda.
