Nothing interesting to blog about, but I just want to let you know that I haven't fallen off the earth. I've been sick the past week, so a whole lot of nothing has happened sewing wise. I finally was able to catch up on things this weekend.

I ironed interfacing on over half of the t-shirts I'm going to use for the t-shirt quilt.

I also am still buried in blue shiny fabric! 30 vests cut and 2 skirts completed!

New Onesie

I had a custom order rock climbing shirt to make, so why waste the dye on just one t-shirt? I made a really cute turtle onesie too!

This n' That

I have been a seriously busy lady these past couple weeks and have had zero time to blog. A project first for me was pillow cases. When making the custom quilt, there was lots of left over solid scraps as well as Pinocchio fabric. Of course I had to do something with the extra fabric and pillow cases were the obvious choice. 

Making pillow cases gave me a great opportunity to practice using my serger! 

I took a nice trip to Maryland with my fiance for his 10 year high school reunion. I found this great purple fabric a while ago, but didn't know what to do with it. I decided to make a sweater for the airplane ride. It's super comfy and I love it!

Next, I have a wedding reception to attend and I can't go to one empty handed. For a couple that has no registry and is very outdoorsy I decided to make a fabric mountain landscape. It's framed and detailed with free motion stitching. 

I'm also in the process of making my first t-shirt quilt. It's a custom order and I'm really excited about it!

Oh yeah, and one minor sewing project I'm doing at the moment. It's that time of year. Blue shiny fabric everywhere!!! I'm working on costumes for Carnaval for the 48 person samba bateria I play with. You can find out more about the Austin Samba School here
