Yep, I am still here...

Hi Everyone,

Again rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. I know I have been really quiet lately... I guess I just got wrapped up in everything going on at the shop and forgot to tell you all about it :)

I haven't done a ton of sewing lately but the last things I made are these:


My evening endeavors!
I am using them as gift bags... having fun making them up in all kinds of sizes and colors. ** If you are local I will be teaching a short class / tutorial on how to make these this Saturday from 1-3pm at the shop. You can bring a sewing machine and make it along with me or just come down and watch me make one. We will have some kits made up for them. They are super simple. I am going to be doing a little class like this once a month until I run out of ideas. I am calling it "The Itty Bitty Project Party" you can find it on the class calendar on the website. If you plan on sewing along please RSVP (you can call or email you can find the phone number and email address here) we are limited to about 14 spaces.

Also if you are making the Gypsy Wife Quilt along with us we are doing a workshop this Saturday also from 11am -1pm to help with making the blocks if you are a little stumped. Come down and get some help if you need it. That is what we are here for :) Speaking of Gypsy Wife we have the patterns for sale now that the BOM is full you can find them here. Here are some of the gorgeous blocks our BOMers are making:

My latest obsession seems to be knitting. I have had a few occasions lately to need a hand project.  My daughter taking her High School exit exams etc. Knitting is so easy to just grab and go. Last week I made this lace shawl... 


This weekend I had a little getaway at a friend's house and she and I watched Sherlock and she cross stitched while I got started on another shawl:



This is the same pattern as the first shawl just a different color. 

We got some bloc-loc rulers in the shop:

We also got Color Me Happy... I adore this collection. Even Vanessa says it's her favorite.


I also made these super fun bundles in what seems to be everyone's favorite combo :)

So how is that for a memory dump :) If you haven't taken a tour through the website lately you will see a lot of new fun fabrics. There are also a lot of super things coming soon... 

Talk soon (I promise ) ;)

  6. Hi! Glad to know they were only rumors, and you haven't really met your demise! ; )

    I wish I could join you in this month's itty-bitty project, even though I watched you make the first one. Our oldest is turning 13 (!) this Friday, so her birthday party is this Saturday. Have fun & I will hopefully see you soon!

    Love the new fabric bundle. Purples and greens, oh my!

  7. I so admire your ability to knit and as a new knitter I'm hoping my skills will improve to where that type of project is doable, thanks for sharing.
