So, let's see what I have been sewing on this week.
I finished Rae Ann's order and I just love how it turned out. This Stu was tricky because it is actually 2 Stu totes. A DCU one and a BDU one inside. This was a pretty thick bag to quilt on, but the results are fine, if I do say so myself. I also made her another smaller bag (below somewhere) because she has always been so sweet and wonderful. And so very patient! Thank you Rae Ann for your wonderful business!
I sorted my boxes of scraps into 2 gallon Ziploc bags that I had to go to Walmart to find. My friend Jennifer swears by the 2 gallon zip lock bag. So I decided to give them a try too. My scraps are now organized my color family and I am pretty happy about it.
I sorted them to get ready for my little sewing class that I had on Thursday. We made quilted pillow case covers out of scrap fabric. It sounded like a sweat shop in here. All these lovely little sewing machines purring away. I really like doing the classes. I hope I can find some friends to sew with at our next duty station.
After the ladies went home to meet their kiddos after school, I walked up to take Ethan to a little play date with his new friend, Luke. His mom and I had a pretty great time ourselves by exploring the basement and attic of an empty dwelling here on post. I am not going to say WHERE it was, just that it was pretty fun and REALLY creepy! I have a big bruise on my bottom from my very ungraceful climb through the attic window. I don't think I have a future as a cat burglar, especially since I was laughing so hard I almost wet my britches. Break ins with Tia! Good times.
This is the doll quilt I have decided to swap this go round on DQS8. I am having a great time quilting it. I am pretty wild for this design and I think I will do a tutorial on how I made these blocks. I love a quilt block tutorial and I don't know why I don't do more of them. I am fine with parting with this quilt because I think I am going to ask my Row10 quilting bee gang to do crosses for my month.
