I am trying to make a kitty blanket but how can I sew with this little monster blocking my sewing machine?
Good thing I love the little monster!
This is the 3rd of my 5 quilts that need to be completed by Christmas. The stripes are half done and then there will be a solid chocolate border on this. I also have the rest of the stripes cut to size. As this is part of my Big Quilt Project, I am using the same design on at least Quilts 1, 2 and 3.
Now, its off to bed. Hope everyone enjoyed their Friday Night Sew In this month!
My new updated Wednesday WIP/Project List
And, I need to discuss with S.T. if she is interested in having a quilt a made for her new baby niece. I am sure you are reading this S.T., so let me know.
My Moda Hullabaloo fabric arrived for the newly commissioned baby quilt. It is so soft and I just love the polka dots but I don’t think I will be able to do any sewing on it this weekend. 😦 I need to finish the pillows for the Mr.’s mom tonight so we can give them to her on the long weekend and do some new fabric laundry. Then I need to turn the sewing room back into a guest room temporarily
Saturday my neice who just turned 18 and her boyfriend are spending the day in Niagara Falls (Canadian side) and then heading over for a BBQ dinner and spending the night. I can’t believe she is 18 now and starting college in the fall. Time flies so fast. I remember when she was 8 and we would spend Saturday nights making crafts together and baking.
Here they are! I stole the picture from her Facebook page! This was one of the many pre-prom pics taken by her parents.
On my Friday Night Sew In, I made these pillow fronts for the Mr’s mom. When I originally purchased this fabric, I loved the design. Now, not so much. At least I can use most of it to make some pillows.
These took me much longer than I expected (sounds like the story of all my projects), but I had to set up my new sewing machine and learn how to use it. Hah! That part is still going on. All I learned was how to thread it, load the bobbin and sew a straight line. There is going to be a learning curve with this puppy!
I made two of these little pillows about a month ago out of this retro art deco fabric called “Hollywood” by Alexander Henry. I used a 15″ pillow form inside and have made the pillow case removable for washing by making it like an envelope with snaps to hold it closed. They make a lovely addition to my livingroom sofa.
The kitten -as always -was quite helpful and insisted he hold the fabric in place while I cut it by sitting in the sewing waste basket!
