What’s Working on Wednesday


I am happy to say the bazaar is this Saturday. I am almost done making little things which means I can get back to making larger things like table runners, wall hangings and of course quilts! I finished up these little coin purses over the weekend.



I have had a few minutes in the evenings to work on the new scarf/shawlette. Love the color changes in this yarn, but I don’t know how much I like the texture. Maybe I’ll like it more once it’s blocked.


I’m linking up with the Quiltsy blog today. Come on over and join us, and link up!

By the way you can follow me on Bloglovin too.

What’s Working on Wednesday


You might remember last week I posted about the Quiltsy blog having a big giveaway! Well it started on Monday but you still have time to enter. The prizes are amazing! Many items made by Quiltsy team members and there’s also an Etsy shopping spree!  Go check it out!

You can also get there by clicking the link on the right in the sidebar!

Still busy with stuff for the bazaar but I did manage to get this small table runner done. It just needs binding. I made it with my favorite line of fabric from Connecting Threads which I have a never ending amount of. LOL


I even made this cucumber and tomato salad to go with dinner.


There’s no WIPs and Whatnot blog this week because of the giveaway, but it will be back next week.

Scrap Happy Saturday

I am still making items for the bazaar which takes place in a few weeks. I’ve made a few lavender sachets and since this months color is Teal today I made these.

Here’s the rest of the group.

I spent a bit of my time this week organizing in my sewing room. If you are like me, this is a never ending process. I’m always thinking of different ways to organize the stash! I have lots of polka dots so I thought it would be easier if I grouped them by color.

One thing you can tell from this picture is I really don’t do red and purple!

While I had piles of fabric everywhere I thought I’d pull these to get a stack started for a new project. Still have lots more to pull.

What’s Working on Wednesday


I actually made a tote bag this week! I haven’t made one in a long time. A while back I was making and selling them quite regularly. Check out this post from 2010 and this one from 2011. Anyway, I was itching to make a bag. I used the smallest of my tote patterns named after my sister’s GD Alana and made this little bag.

I’m still working on items for the bazaar. My sister has claimed this one, so it won’t make it to the bazaar.

I’ve finished another shawl. Although this yarn has some silver running through it to make it sparkle, you can’t see it in this picture. I think this is one of my favorites so far.

I started this one on Monday night. I needed a new project to work on while I watch the Phillies in the evenings.

Thank you for all the encouragement! I actually made a quilt top! I used a Rouenneries Deux by French General charm pack and some yardage from Connecting Threads. This was my usual “start sewing and see where it takes you” type of quilt. I started with 9 four patch blocks.

I added a few other blocks and strips

And here’s the result!


I think I’ll round the corners on this one after quilting.

Ooops I almost forgot. I never used Google Reader, I read all blogs from my blog list on the right side of my blog. I’m happy to say that is still working, but for all of you who are now using Bloglovin I’m not receiving your posts. I do however get them in an email a day later!
