making progress

I am getting a few little quilts finished.  Picking out the last bits of fabrics, sewing and hand stitching on the binding.

This one is the from the Wonky Log Cabin Quilt class that I taught.  Red is used traditionally for the center square, but I wanted to use this untraditional olive green.  Then I used some reproduction fabric in yellow for the sashing and back of the quilt.

The binding is some yardage that I have had awhile that I love.  I am into the yellow, orange, and blues together, aren’t they just so happy!

And here are some blocks that my sister Mary sent me home with during my visit with her this past summer.  All reproduction prints.  Don’t you love the soft yellow centers!  It’s like a little pat of butter :)  This one is going to be a little quilt for my girl and her favorite dolls.  It will be just the perfect size.  And made with love from her Aunt Mary and Momma!

see what it's all about

frisbee winner

I think this frisbee dog is a girl.  And if you ask my daughter, all of the dogs from her party were girls. Of course!  Especially since they are each backed in pink gingham. Pink = Girl.

And to the giveaway.    The winner is Shell!!  Thanks for all of your sweet comments!  I love hearing from you and I love that we share so many of the same interests.

Now I need to share with you the last little bit of what I have done with this fabric and the dog.

I couldn’t resist making a shirt for her.  With just a little wunder under and brown thread.

It looks just as cute from the inside.

But, I think it is a bit too small for her.  She still hasn’t worn it and I think it feels too tight to her.  So, it will go soon to my shop!  Size 5T if you’re interested.

save the date

I love participating in local shows, especially ones of this quality!  If you love these street craft/antique shows then you should make it to this one.  This will be my 3rd time at The Tattered House market, and it is just the best!

I hope to see you there :D

sharing time

I wanted to show you my  last few pics of my girl’s birthday party.  And p.s.  if you read this entire post there will be a surprise at the end!

My neighbor showed me a neat trick for making these fruit bouquets.  Insert a wedge of iceberg lettuce in the pot.  These were fun to make.  I wish I had bought more pineapple, and the strawberries also had blueberries on the skewers that helped them from slipping down the stick.  The kids loved it and of course they ate it all!

I also made these huge tissue paper flowers.  They hung from the ceiling over the counter where I had the food out.  My husband thought that I bought them, what a kook :)

Remember the theme of her party was dogs.  So I ordered this simple cake with a dog bone on it.  The plastic dogs we already had and had been through the dishwasher.  I was going to put them nicely around the perimeter of the cake, but when the girls saw what I was up to, they decided to assist me!

And here is was I made for each little girl to take home with her.  A little scottie dog.  My girl even helped me add the stuffing.  It was so sweet for me to get to make them with her.  She named her dog “Frisbee”!  Gotta love it.

And here is your surprise… I made an extra little dog for you!!  Yes, you can be the proud owner of your very own frisbee dog.  Just leave a comment for a chance to win.  This giveaway will end on Sunday night.  Thanks and pass it on!

a little pink

This is the last one of the baby bibs, for now. I am adding it tonight to my etsy.  Well I am trying to any way.

I am having a few problems with my pictures being the right size.  This hasn’t happened to me before, so I must check it out, and get it figured out.

That is why you get to see it here first.

This is the last little bit of this vintage fabric that I have left too.  So no matching burp cloth.  Sorry!  I might be able to make just one little matching appliqued onesie.  If you’re nice to me :)
