table runner top

I ordered a charm pack of Reunion to make a table runner for my kitchen table.
The top is complete.  Just a lot of half-square triangles.
Now I'm wondering how I should quilt it.
Any suggestions?  straight line? only in charcoal triangles?

pinafore tops and a bonnet

So here it is Wednesday already!  Time just seems to be flying by.
We had a fun, busy weekend with family in town and the wedding on Saturday.
Now I'm back here to post some pictures of a few projects I did a couple weeks ago.

First a couple pinafore tops like the one I made here.  Pattern from Tie Dye Diva.

I also made a little niece a bonnet for her birthday.
Pattern available here and here.

Hoping to find some time to visit my sewing room later this week!

a quick hello

Just a couple peeks at what I have been working on here.
I just finished up the girls' dresses for the wedding on Saturday.
I hope to have more pictures later.


Patchwork + applique + embroidery = a new pattern in the works!


Thanks for reading!

seersucker jumper

I made my oldest daughter a jumper...also think it will be cute as a shirt with some white leggings.
It was my first time sewing with seersucker and I don't think it will be my last.

seersucker dress

I used Sandi Henderson's Gracie pattern.  I made the jumper option - with a few changes.
I didn't line it to make it reversible.  I did the neck line a bit different.  Since I didn't make it reversible, I finished the edges under the arms, along the bottom and up the back with double-fold bias tape.

seersucker dress

I used some blue and yellow buttons on the back to add a bit more color.

She seems to like it although she did tell me that she wished it was pink.

party aprons

I had a custom order a couple weeks ago.
Aprons for a tea party birthday.



I have slowly been using up my fat quarter stash of Delilah by Tanya Whelan.
I think these aprons about used up the last of it.
