Playing catch up and Rainbow Fabric Baby Book

Well, it's been super busy around here, without having internet for a couple of days and plenty of sewing (plus - booking our wedding - October 7, 2012!!!)! Here's what I've been up to lately.


My big finish for the week is this rainbow fabric baby book (I talked more about my inspiration here). I'm really happy with it and I'm sending it off to my beautiful 1 year old niece in tomorrow's mail!


I had crazy fun quilting this thing. :) And I loved being spontaneously scrappy! I looked for fabrics that would be bright and cute for kids.


I wanted her to be able to touch/feel/see the colors, and I put batting in between the pieces to make it soft.


I think it's a really unique gift - for any baby. Try it out! You can just use scraps!


Does anyone want a mini-tutorial on this? I'll write one if you let me know!

Made a few new Harry Potter inspired lanyards for the shop. I have a couple of listings waiting in the wings, too. Each one is unique and I absolutely love making them.

Cutting t-shirts for a commissioned t-shirt quilt.

Making a very special t-shirt (don't want to reveal yet in case this person actually does read my blog. :)

Starting knitting my sister's Christmas present - a Slytherin House scarf! (she's in Slytherin like me on Pottermore) - it doesn't look much yet but I realized how much I missed knitting! I'll be working on this at school, when I'm calling alumni at work =P and catching up on How I Met Your Mother...

And now... back to my regularly scheduled midterms and thesis writing =/... 2 more months!
