2012 Finish-A-Long Second Quarter

After a not-so-stellar rate of finishing my UFOs last quarter, I am determined to get more done in the next three months.  In fact, I have promised myself that I will not purchase fabrics for new projects until I finish the old!  (Except for shop items, of course.) It seems to me that UFOs must…

2012 Finish-A-Long

One of my goals for the new year is to finish up some of the UFOs (unfinished objects) laying around my sewing room.  (if you read my other blog, you might remember that I had the same goal for last year and well….life and new projects happened.)  So here I am, ready to give it…

Sewing Challenge – Winner!

I can hardly believe it, but I’ve won the Extreme Makeover sewing challenge!  I was up against some pretty talented ladies!  Thanks to everyone for your support over the last six weeks! (well….seven weeks….we had two weeks for this last challenge.)  I definitely think I’ve stretched myself as a seamstress and I am so happy with…

Pretty in Pink Completed!

Don’t you love that feeling when you finish a big project?  Especially when you love the way everything looks when it is finished? That’s the way I feel about this pretty in pink set.  You might remember seeing this quilt in progress.  Here it is, all quilted and ready for its new home.  The quilting…

One UFO Flies Away….

   I have completed my first UFO of the year!  I had grand plans to finish one of the big quilts this month, but after opening the shop and then making the top and the dress, I found the month was quickly getting away from me!  So I chose a small UFO to finish.  It…

UFOs – Stopping the Invasion

Just about anyone with a crafty hobby knows what UFOs are (and no, I am not referring to an extraterrestrial invasion!).  They are the unfinished objects that were started and then abandoned in favour of newer, more exciting, more pressing, or easier (!) projects.  They lurk in hidden corners of the sewing or craft room,…

Another Quilt Finished!

At the moment I have a few too many quilts laying half-finished on my sewing room floor.  And a backlog of other projects that were put on hold during the back-to-school, harvest-the-garden rush.  But now that things are back to normal their usual level of  craziness, I have found a few minutes here and there…

Sew Fun Feature!

I was featured on the Sew Fun blog today!   Eek!  You can check it out here.  And while you are there, be sure to check out the great Sew Fun patterns.  I have sewn them all and highly recommend them.  The directions are easy to follow and I have always been more than happy with…

Oddysea Quilt Finished!

My charm square quilt is finally finished!  Of course, I had to make a trip to the fabric store before I could complete it because despite my large stash of fabric I had nothing suitable for the back and binding.  In the end I really love the way the  dark teal sets off all of…
