Sew happy

I've been super busy the last few weeks, my sewing machine and I are best buds now.

A pair of chef's hats and aprons for my lovely friend Amanda:

And a duo of carolers made for an ornament swap:

I'm in the mood to make a whole mess of those carolers and string them together as a garland for the holidays...maybe this weekend I'll work on that

I'm dreaming

Fabrics, patterns, more...I love to "window" shop online. Sometimes numerous windows. One of my favorite places is Above All Fabric. Melanie, the owner, sends out some sweet newsletters each month, and always has the best fabrics and deals.

Right now she's doing a giveaway - create a wishlist, blog about it, then post the blog link on her blog.

Here's some thing on my wishlist:
Carnival Bloom knit

Cocoa Ta Dot knit

Scandi Chirp knit

Raspberry knit

Pink Paisley cuddle minky

Lindy Leaf in Pink

Dogwood Bloom in Berry

A few patterns..


Mini Frida


I can already picture that Dogwood Bloom as a great little bag, the Scandi Chirp and Raspberry knits as a fun little dress set, and that pink paisley cuddle as one side of a cute baby blanket... Now I just need to show The Hubby my wishlist...
