Fabric plans

My fabric came yesterday. Hooray!
This is the pile for the baby quilt. Need to get cracking on it today.

I also ordered some fabric for myself - which of course I can't play with until later. But look how pretty they are. And so soft and lovely.

Ok - I've got a date with my iron and a table to clear off ;o)

Have a Happy Tuesday xxx

No time

So last week was so busy - I had no time at all to get in my sewing room, only the kitchen. Hopefully this week it'll be a different story. Hoping to receive those fabrics tomorrow or Tuesday so I can get started on the quilt. And that should take up my time this week. Aiming to get the quilt ready to send off by next Monday.

And this little smoochy girl has been getting much love and cuddles. She likes to "help" with my daughters homework. We gave her a bath yesterday and she is much happier.  Have you ever tried to bath a cat? It's not the best idea.

Today I've got much to do - so I better go do it!
Have a Happy Sunday. I can't wait for My Kitchen Rules tonight. I love both teams but I think Dan & Steph will win it. I've got my fingers crossed for them.

A little more sleep would be nice

This is how I looked this morning - when my furry alarm clock came and woke me at 4am, 5am, and 6am. Lucky she's cute!!

So this week I am waiting patiently on a fabric order to arrive for a job. A lady wants me to make a quilt for her brother and sister-in-law. Their nursery colours are pink & green. So after changing it around a bit - we've gone with this selection.
I think I should throw some more white in there too.
I can't wait to get started on it - but there seems to be a little holdup. Hope it comes soon!

And I am totally crushing on all the Marcelle Medallion quilts. I've been dreaming of making one.
Pretty gorgeous huh?

Maybe I should get the little things crossed off my list this week. First up, some Storage baskets for my patterns I think. Or a Palo Alto Gadget bag. I've been meaning to make one for so long.
Well - better get moving. School run time!
Have a great week,

Geranium Dress

So it took me a while to get back to my sewing machine. But I did it. For a special little girl whose birthday is coming up in less than a week.
I wanted to make her a pretty little dress and thought straight away of Rae's Geranium Dress.
I used Anna Maria Horners gorgeous Field Study fabric. The outside is Sinister swarm in Flour.
I decided to use snaps for the closure on the back.
I used pretty pearl ones from Snap Source.
And for the lining - Anna Maria Horners Field Study again. This time Sundials in Happy. I think that would be a great print for the front of the dress too. So cute.

I hope she likes it.

What are you creating lately?

Not such a great week

So last week was a shocker. Up early every morning for class.
Waiting for rides home. As the parking was so ridiculous I had to get hubby to drop me there every day.
Then I got news that my mum was back in hospital with an infection after surgery. Awesome.
And my sweet kitty handsome had been sick all week. So Friday night we made the heartbreaking decision to put him down. It was awful. But I couldn't leave him by himself. I had to be there with him.
He was my chatter box. I miss hearing him. I miss seeing him. He was my little buddy.
This little sweetpea is missing her buddy too. She's taken to sleeping with me at night. And I don't mind one bit!

This week I need some happy. Mum might be coming home today. If all her results are good. And I want to do some sewing. I had planned to start a bag yesterday but got sidetracked. Maybe today.
Hope you are having a much better week!

Another Juice Box

All done.
Just finished attaching the binding. Now I just need to wash it and it'll be ready for the bubba. I used the Juice Box pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew.
I made a scrappy binding out of the leftover bits of fabric.
And for the back some chevron flannel.

I've filled the basket ready to give to the mumma-to-be.
 Pretty cute huh!

Got a busy week this week - so I'm super happy I've finished it all.
Have a great week,
