More news to follow soon. 😀

These two weeks!

I already have made such headway on sewing this week!  I’m so tickled!

This past weekend (omg weekend before last!) my guild went on a shop hop!!!  It was entirely too much fun.  We went all around Nashville and went to really neat shops (and one…that are a little urban legend-y) and we were greeted so pleasantly and had such a fun day!  I found some REALLY adorable origami animals fabric that well, I couldn’t leave without.  I also stocked up on more (because I needed them!!!) fat quarters and a book that I’ve been looking forward to getting, Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt.  I absolutely love all of these sweet blocks in this book!  Eventually, I’ll actually get to make something that’s in there!  I saw another book while we were on the hop, Another Bite of Schnibbles by Carrie Nelson, but I decided to get that on my Nook.

This weekend I went down to Tuscaloosa for my  nephew’s birthday party.  I wish my birthday parties would have been so cool at 6!  Everyone had a blast running all around the Children’s Hands On Museum (CHOM) “learning and playing” and maybe goofing around.  I also was told there is a “big slide” that I needed to see.  I had no idea that it was a Hunger Games trial esq giant slide!  I carefully scaled this behemoth and came down in 6 minutes.  I may have taken a little less time but a girl in front of me got all the way to the top, got scared, wouldn’t move, then almost kicked me in the head on her way down.  It was my fault really, I told her “hey I’m right here, be careful!”  Also…when I got to the top my phone fell out of my pocket, so I couldn’t even get a picture from way up there.  It was also about 80,000 degrees, so the faster I got down that slide the better.

I finished up the Big Love heart quilt top, but I think I want to add something more to it.  It just doesn’t seem big enough to me.  I FINALLY got to cut into those Michael Miller The Littles fabrics.  I’ve actually almost got that quilt top complete, too!  Needless to say, I’ve had some serious sew-jo going lately.

So what have you been up to lately?  That’s all for me…well mostly but I’ll save something for another post. 😉

Until next time!  Happy sewing!

Craft show weekend is Upon us…

*insert alarm horns*

WEE WOO WEE WOO!!!

weewoo

We’re at defcon 2 people!

Okay so maybe that’s all a little dramatic.  I am nervous though.  I keep telling myself, honestly, what is the worst that can happen…but then I do think of a few things and it’s not helping.  Probably not going to die, someone might actually buy something from me, also it’ll get my shop’s name out there at higher level.

Most importantly, probably not going to die.  Probably.

I only have a few more things I want to do before I’m saying “that’s the best it’s going to get, done” so I’m planning on getting those done tonight.  I was going to put the Al’s Pals in the basket as shown below, but they’re so short and the basket is SO deep!  They have to sit on a bundle of fabric, and that basket takes up so much room on the table.  I instead decided to make an Hour Basket (Pattern by KelbySews) which turned out GREAT!  And now I just need one more for the rest of the Pals.  I meant to make one last night, but I fell asleep at 7:30 (thanks fitness and the gym.)

I’ll whip the new one out tonight before taking everything to the garage to test run set up everything.  Ugh!!!  That’s probably going to make things real.  Getting real REAL FAST.

I’ll have most of the things in my shop, my bags and wallets, my quilt and other baby things.  I’ll probably leave a few things behind that I don’t think will move right now, like scarves because honestly it’s too hot to think about scarves.

If you want to come see me, I’ll be at 123 S 11th Street in Nashville from 4 – 9 pm, it’s in 5 points down the street from I dream of weenie.  Yes that’s a real place, yes it’s a hot dog van, and yes it’s adorable.  I’ll be in the back, and my mom’s going to be with me, so be nice! 😀  There will also be around 17 other vendors out there, so there’s going to be a lot going on!

This weekend!!!!!!! :D

                           This weekend!!!!!!! 😀

Until next time, happy sewing!

What a week!

It’s been a busy one over here.  A week of getting things done that I’ve been putting off!

First, I have been eyeing this quilt I saw on…you guessed…the devil’s website.  I had the layer cake ready to go, and I finally got around to getting it cut up and placed!  And man, do I feel better!  Now…I just need to piece it!

The second thing I’ve gotten done was making this great craft fair apron…also from the devil.  I felt like the only thing missing was a zipper pocket, so I sort of managed one in there.  It resulted in one messier seam than I would have liked, but it’ll be alright.

I also got these little guys made and listed, just in time for the craft fair!!!  They are designed to match the red wallets in my shop right now.

Also!!!  Just in time for the craft fair!!!  My husband, the ever handy man he is, fancied me up a pegboard display!

To say I’ve been busy would be an understatement. 😀  Well, that’s all for now, I hope you all have a safe and fun 4th of July!  Woo!!  Red white and BOOM it up!

Until next time!  Happy sewing!!

And the 5 bloggers I nominate are…
My 5 questions from Katie are:
1. What are you reading right now? 
I feel like I will forever be reading The Wizard of Oz collection.  I wish I had more time for reading, but it’s sadly been falling to the wayside!

Dax and Opal ❤
4. What do you like most about your favorite hobby?
I enjoy how amazed people are by the things I make.  I don’t know if they didn’t know I had it in me, or what, but the reaction is always great.
5. If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?
I’d be in a creative think tank.  Helping solve problems, simplifying current tedious tasks, and creating cool ideas for a range of things (video games, quilt patterns, you name it)

My Questions (I’m sticking with 5 as well!)
1. Why did you start doing what you’re doing now for a hobby?
2. What is your favorite part of every day?
3. Who do you need to communicate or see every day or you don’t feel right?
