I've been a busy girl this week, with not as much time for sewing as I would like. The rain is going to keep me out of the garden for a while it seems, so next week there should be more finishes, I'm hoping. I did manage to get three "sewy" things done to show you:
I've had the pattern for this darling sleep sack cut out and ready to go for a couple of weeks now. Since I was going to see the mommy on Wednesday, the approaching deadline for making my gift for a sweet baby boy kicked me into action and in just a few hours it was completed. I love the Kate Spain Central Park zoo fabric so much, don't you! This is my second try at using this well made pattern and I like the way it turned out as much as the first! You can read my pattern review here. For summer, I did not add a fleece lining this time, but did interface the tab closures.
Last night was the monthly KC Modern Quilt Guild meeting (Shea Henderson, the genius behind Empty Bobbin patterns, was our great speaker!) and I was once again on the wire to get my block finished for a swap I'm in. This time Parthena asked for wonky houses in bright colors. It was a fun little project using my stash fabrics.
Wednesday afternoon, as promised, the resident random generator (my husband) selected a winner in the Cover Up give away. Number 22 is Val who said," I love Shea's patterns - so great and always so detailed (and usually lots of color pictures). I use the hard plastic cover that came with my machine, but I'd love to dress things up a bit! "
Congratulations, your pattern is on it's way, Val!
I wish that I had a lot more patterns to give away because it would seem from the entries and comments that most sewing machines are standing around naked. Oh, my!
