Rosemarie & Katee with their quilts
Rosemarie and Katee with their quilts at Christmas!
(The above picture has nothing to do with this post)

No sewing happened today. I did however, try something totally new yesterday that I'll be posting as soon as I hand sew that binding down! It's little and cute, and I learned that maybe it would have been better if I wouldn't have gone all rogue and shrunk down the block size without testing the large size first. It's pretty cool though; stay tuned! 

I don't do this often... have you guys seen the work of Jolene over at Blue Elephant Stitches? WHOA! That's some seriously awesome sewing! I'd like to think that that's what my blog would look like if I had all the money in the world to buy fabric with... and all the long naptimes in the world to sew during... and a reason to make lots of quilts (the ability to feel ok charging someone for a quilt). Such great inspirational work there. Seriously, get a load of her "We love Grandma" pillow. Be still my heart! AMH, purple, and tiny handstiched words! :)


  1. Cool! I'm glad you plugged that blog because I love following new ones to follow! Awesome work there!

  2. Wow - Blue Elephant Stitches is awesome! Thanks for sharing. Cute picture too! I look forward to seeing your quilt that you are working.

  3. I was hoping that you would post a photo of your nieces with the quilts! I bet they were totally loving them...well, actually, I can see from their expressions that they are loving them!
