I really enjoyed stitching this "Blessings Angel" by Michelle Ridgeway. It would make a beautiful gift, made into anything. Right now I am focusing on doing the stitcheries, not turning them into anything. CD in picture for size reference.

My favorite website was having a sale so I picked up these tiny 2.5" mini charms. Here is my new potholder. I think it is ugly. I am a terrible quilter. However, I m still quite proud of it. I love it and will smile a little more in the kitchen while using it.

A quick baby gift. All super cuddly soft- a burpie and two bamboo and flannel wash cloths.

I really love taking small projects on the go.

This is a hopeful layout. I hope to sew them together and get better lighting shots this month.

Fast and easy pinwheels

I had planned on adding a hand embroidery design to this one, but after stitching it I realized it didn't quite match. I'll still just use it as is for some random project.

When snapping this shot, I realized how often I don't get pics of the things I make. There were a couple of these, but the other one was so cute it went into use right away.

This pattern, slightly enlarged to make the most of my 17" zips.

A couple more of these redwork squares are done. So far, this is the BEST crafty book I've used in a long time.

Jelly Roll Race

The kids and I have been watching this youtube every night before bed for weeks. They love the funny speedy part of the video. I'm no quilter, but I thought I could try this out- especially after seeing it so many times. Turns out, it took me 1 hour 30 minutes. Still impressive considering it was my first try and I had a broken bobbin issue.

After searching pinterest for ideas, I figured out an idea for a thread holder. Since I'm rarely sewing anymore with the machine, I wanted a way to store just a few spools. Most of these are for handwork. Luckily there was a five year old handy for the sawing, sanding, and hammering involved in this project.

O+S is still one of my favorite pattern designers. This is a size 3T Teaparty Sundress.

A project folder shown with an 8" hoop. I love the reds in the fabrics and the buttons. For years I've used my machine to sew on buttons, so this was a bit more challenging.
