Playing catch up

Hello hello, my poor neglected blog! It’s been too long and I have so much to catch up on! I’ve had a very busy and productive couple months, even if I wasn’t able to keep up with it here on the blog. I did manage to take some pictures along the way though, so for this week’s Finish It Up Friday let’s do a quick recap… let’s see…

Birthday presents were made. Yes, that is totally a guinea pig in purple faux fur. Because, why not? I’m happy to report that he delighted my 8 year old niece.

Late baby quilts were finished for our newest (and last!) addition. This one went right from the dryer on to the baby, so all my pictures are of it in use. Oh well, who doesn’t love chunky babies on their quilts?

My best friend from college welcomed an adorable little boy, and I made my first ever baby quilt for a boy! I’ve been hoarding these fabrics from Birch Fabrics for years now, and I was so glad to put them to good use. I’m particularly proud of the quilting on this one, check out those tiny quilted stars!

And there was this character, who my youngest cousin is entirely smitten with. Actually, I am too. He is now affectionately known as “cousin Melvin.” He was finished in the car enroute to his new home, so please excuse the odd background, haha!

A new pincushion was made… and then my oldest designed a stuffed animal version (pictured right). She had a blast, and those color choices? Hilariously awesome. Plus, that face is pretty priceless 🙂

Another good friend welcomed a baby girl, which was the perfect excuse to use some scraps. You know you love someone (and their child) when you dip into your Heather Ross stash!

Phew, ok, I think those are all my major makes. Feels good to get caught up, thank you!

I also have some fantastic news to share, though I’m going to hold on to it for a bit longer. It will help encourage me to get back into the blogging habit. Update to follow!

Happy Sewing!

    Ok, first of all your stuffies are awesome! I love the purple guinea pig. Secondly, those are some great baby quilts! I think the orange one is my favorite, but it’s hard to choose!
