On a Roll!

This week, I've been ignoring everything else and just sitting at my sewing machine (basically) :). I'm treating this as a well-deserved break, though next week I have to get back on track and start reading tons of books and articles for my internship. But anyway... while I can't show Christmas presents just yet still, I'm working on two other things...

I made a pincushion with this handy, very easy-to-follow tutorial. This should hold me over until I can make a big owl pincushion... it's on the to-do list!

Then, I started making a baby quilt for the most adorable four-day-old newborn I have ever seen, our neighbor. I'm getting there and I plan on getting a lot done tomorrow. Some "Dream On" charms, some Valerie Wells, and fairies...

Giveaway alert - Retromummy is giving away 20 gorgeous fat quarters of Flower Sugar - imagine everything you could make with all that fabric! Woo! You can enter here:

Christmas post is going to be on Christmas Eve day. :) Hope everyone is getting their sewing done!


  1. I am strolling along the Blog Roll at Holly Jolly Blog Bingo and you were first on the list today. Congrats on making sewing time for yourself. Your pincushion is adorable and that baby quilt is going to be delicious.
    Happy Holidays.

  2. I'm visiting from HJ Bingo. It is such a nice time of the year to sit at the sewing machine and have some fun. What a pleasant Christmas present -- a new baby!!!!

  3. Hello, I am a new follower. I hopped over here from the Bingo. Nice to meet you.
