What’s Working on Wednesday

Don’t tell anyone but I’m supposed to be working on craft bazaar items. Needed a little distraction so I thought I’d pull some fabrics for this quilt.

I’ve got two stacks here,

but I’ve been thinking I might use these fabrics that where gifted to me. These are the ones I’d like to use but using them would mean I’d need to purchase more fabric. I’m seriously trying not to do that!

In other news it was a good weekend for me. I got new shoes! ( really needed them)


And DH got me a new handmade shopping tote!


One year ago today it looked like this at my house.

Remembering those who lost much more than we did to hurricane Sandy.

On Sunday

I know it’s been a long time  since I’ve posted anything, but I’m really going to try to blog a bit more regularly. I mean at least once a week!

Last Saturday’s craft fair was great! For the first time ever I sold mostly table runners. I only sold a few small items like cosmetic bags and coin purses. I have two more shows next month. Lets hope the table runner thing is a trend!

Of course I made a few purchases. I have two yarn bowls that I love but I couldn’t resist buying this bowl from the vender across from me at the show.

And I just had to purchase this hand embroidery from the 30’s.

I have a new project I’ve been working on in the evenings. It’s EPP. This will be some thing small, maybe a cover for Georgie Girl.


I’m still finding time to get a little hooking in. I’m working on this shawl/scarf.

And last but most certainly not least, I’d like to wish my wonderful DH a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!

On Sunday

It’s been a very long time between blog posts. I’ve had all kinds of things happening here. First I was sick for 3 weeks right after taking DD back to school, next up was a 21st birthday party for DD and 2 of her friends and now I’m in the process of working on bazaar items again. Let’s just say this was a very full September.

Today I’m here to share Confetti. I had the pleasure of testing this wonderful pattern as one of the Supremes for Stephanie of Loft Creations. It’s an easy pattern with great results.

I had so much fun choosing scraps for this quilt from my solids scrap bin. I really love the way it turned out and after the bazaar sewing is done this is first on the quilting list!
