A day of appliqué

To celebrate Canada Day I spent the entire afternoon and evening in the sewing room. I am so happy to have my sewing mojo back. :)

I borrowed the book Applique Delights from our quilt guild for the summer and attempted my first NON-fusible appliqué project(needle turn hand stitched). It is really fun, and rewarding. I love the folk-art quality of hand stitching pieces to the background. Beautiful! If I do say so myself. I will definitely be using this technique again. I'm sure I still have a lot to learn.

This is little quilt # 1 of what I hope to be a whole wall of quilted wonders.

We did get ice cream last night and drive out to see fireworks. Happy Birthday Canada!

The Dress

I've been focusing on wedding stuff lately, making invitations, bookings, shopping...not crafting as much. I have however made some wedding progress and ordered THE dress.

I'm excited for the long weekend and getting some baby quilts done for a friend. She has ordered two. They are the perfect size and oh so fun. I will post pics when they are finished.

In the mean time...check out my pink dress. Ignore my less than thrilled expression. :)

THE Dress - yes it is pink!

i've caught the wave

The whole ripple blanket craze has caught me in the wave. I started near the end of February and have about 2.5-3 feet completed. Very fun, very therapeutic, and also very addictive.

I'm back on Etsy

Just a sneak peak or some of my wares up on Esty. I'm doing well with my New Year's Resolutions. :D

My store is:

Our Dear Benny Dog

Benny Dog

On the 14th of December, two days before my birthday, we lost our dear Benny dog. He lived a great life and was a constant comfort and source of enjoyment for our family. I don't live at home anymore so I didn't get to see him as often as I would have liked but when I was home, his company and spirit was unmatched.

I've made a little shrine/memorial of my favorite picture of him, an included his favorite things, walks, dog bones, squirrels/chippies, car rides, snow etc. I'm sure he would be proud. He will be missed dearly.
