Busy, Busy

So much going on right now! I’ve been sewing a lot but regular life is keeping me on my toes, too. Family life will do that to a mom!

Here’s a sampling of the newest goods. Find them in the shop

Been a While…

After a summer of gardening and preserving, I was more than ready to jump back into sewing. There are a few new colorful lovelies in the shop: 

{calico snowballs :: hand appliqued and hand quilted}

 

{square rainbow :: a scrapbox buster}

  

{bright pinwheels :: so cheerful}

 
Find them in the quilt section of the shop. 

A Large Order

Last year I made and sold a number of items to the Lancaster Mennonite Historical  Society. Then about two months ago, I got another order for “a few dozen sets of pot holders”. Well sure! I do love making those things and have always wanted to try making as many as it took to get sick of them. Well that number is 30. I wanted to send 36 sets so I grabbed a few from my Etsy stash and called it quits!
I had loads of fun tho. Coming up with new patterns or color combos is one of th best parts. And I worked with both vintage and modern fabrics (not in the same sets). 

Glad to have them shipped out!  

New Additions

Several pairs of pot holders and a chevron baby blanket.  I had a lot of fun with this new pot holder design. Also, those blues? Striking, yes?

           

Oh and also this fish pouch. I made myself a wallet using this fabric and figured the leftovers would make a cute zippered pouch.

A Scrappy One

    This quilt came together much better than I thought it would and i’m so happy with it. 

I used foundation paper piecing for the diagonal stripes. I realized later then that this would make the squares be on the bias. I thought for sure it would be all wonky til I was finished but it wasn’t at all. Hooray! 

This quilt really used up a lot of scraps. Seems I can never get rid of those!

Find it here on Etsy. 

Shop Stock

I’m stocking the shop before spring gets too busy! 

These are the first pot holders I used free motion quilting on. I’m pleased with how they turned out even though I have a lot to learn in that area.
