dear blog…

I’m not ignoring you.  I promise.  I’ve just slipped into a little slump of easy distraction and busy time that doesn’t involve sewing.  I have been doing some plotting and planning to sew, so there’s that.

I’ve got a little Superman quilt up on my planning wall right now.  It’s for a very special little friend of mine named Caleb.  He’s the sweetest little boy.  Without going into a whole lot of details, he’s in a wheelchair and always has a blanket in his lap.  I know how much he loves Superman, so I’m making this little Superman a blanket.


I’ve recently gotten a doll dress frame for American Girl dolls, and I’m trying to make something that will fit it.  It’s a little harder than I imagined.  My mom is coming up this weekend and I’m hoping to show her some sewing things, and she wants to sew doll clothes to sell on eBay.  She has an American Girl doll, and we’re going to put our heads together this weekend and see what we can make.

I’ve also gathered some of my leftover squares from the chevron quilt and put together how I can make a  baby blanket.  (yes, I had that many leftover squares!)  I still need to quilt the big brown blanket, finish the rainbow blanket top, and some other small projects.  And since I have so much on my sewing agenda, I’ve decided to make October Sew-tober!  I’m going to sew something every day.  Maybe I won’t complete a project every day, but I will work on something every day.  I’m hoping to get a couple of hours in each day, hopefully I can do it!  It’s a little difficult to find time when you work 40 hours a week, but I have hope.

Anyhow, I hope everyone has a lovely Oct…I mean Sewtober!
