Sewing and Sleeping

I’ve been attempting to get a lot of sewing done, but work has been so busy, I’ve been coming home and passing out on the couch. Gus has been attempting to keep me motivated.

I sent more patterns off to Crimson Tate.

I finished up that baby quilt I was working on. It turned out really great. Joanna was really happy with it.

I’ve been working on my Merry Go Round quilt in class at Crimson Tate. My friend Brooke talked me into it. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it because the pattern looks really traditional. With a little Denyse Schmidt fabric, I fell in love. Here it is up on the design wall. Heather, the owner of Crimson Tate put it up on the shop facebook page and Denyse Schmidt LIKED IT!

I also started taking an online calligraphy course. I probably could have chosen a better timing, but I’ve really been wanting to take it.

I’ve also been sewing bags and getting ready for the Fountain Square Art Fair here in Indianapolis on September 22nd.

This one is my personal favorite.

So that’s what’s been going on here. What have you been working on?


Weather, the Oscars, and a Quilt Top

I’m a little behind on sharing all of the wonderful things I’ve been up to, but I suppose that means I am keeping busy which I like. Nothing overwhelming, just a lot going on.

I actually watched all of the Oscars for the first time. (I told you I was a little behind, didn’t I?). I enjoyed it and have a big huge crush on Jean Dujardin because he said he loved America because we have these things called cinnamon rolls and you can take a right turn on red. Plus, he’s kind of gorgeous…and French.

Gus wasn’t so into the Oscars.

I’ve been working a little here and there on some of my sewing. I finished one quilt top that had been laying around forever. I had to sash the edges because I kept screwing it up and it just kept getting smaller and smaller. I love the fabric I used for it though.I’m planning on putting the same fabric on the back. It’s a flannel I picked up at Joann’s.

I’ve also been working (very slowly) on adding the hand quilting to my chevron quilt. It’s not my favorite activity, but I love the look so far.

I realized I forgot to share a photo of the finished top, so here it is.


Also, I think the weather has been a little crazy everywhere this winter, but I have to share some of my weird Indiana weather photos.

This first one (well two) were taken just a couple hours apart.


This next one was just too awesome not to share.
