Well hello there! I hope your New Year is off to a fantastic start! I'm trying to come up with some resolutions that won't be broken within a day. I noticed a lot of "fabric fasting" and "stashbusting" blog posts, but I'm not even going to pretend to join that! I do want to learn German so I don't have any more bald eyebrows incidents while we live here and I hope to blog more. I feel like I shouldn't blog if I don't have something to share, to maybe blogging more will mean sewing more?
Anyway, on that note, here's a little something I whipped up for my daughter today
|I know it's really "rectangly," but so is her bed!|
|She likes it and I know it looks like her clothes don't match, but she showed me that there's a neon green stripe in that skirt too|
Just kiddin' - I only finished the binding today. I had made the tiny quilt for her doll Sally to open on Christmas morning and decided it would be nice for her to have a matching one. In a fit of efficiency, I got it done today! I'll have to take some pictures during the day tomorrow.
On another note, I attempted to make a Christmas pillow for my boring couch using my Pretty in Patchwork Holidays book.
I learned a few things, including the fact that I don't know how to blow up a pattern 400% with my computer. I had to make up my own tree shape and when I got to the cutting it out stage I realized that you can still see through my background. Nobody told me not to use white!!
so, this sucker will be sitting on the windowsill until someone has a good suggestion :)
Happy New Year again - talk to ya soon!
