Let’s start off with the most fun topic…my great niece! She’s 9 weeks old and her parents just posted these pics. Awwwww, my heart is so full for this little red-haired cutie pie ❤
She was only 18 days old the last time I held that little bundle…hopefully I can get back up there soon.
I’ve been doing a little sewing this week – I finally completed the last block I needed for The Honeypot Bee, this is from November. There were multiple block options each month but sometimes I didn’t make either and other times I made both…I ended up with a total of 21 blocks.
I put them up on my design wall this week just to get an idea of what I had and where I was going to need some sashing and/or fillers. This is not my final layout but you can see I still have my work cut out for me to make this cohesive :-s
We also had a winter weather event here last week…we got about 2-3″ of snow and it stuck around for a few days until the temps finally climbed back to normal yesterday. I enjoyed watching it come down since I work from home and didn’t have to worry about going out in it, but down here in SC most people just stay home anyway when this happens.
I did get a few orders for bowl cozies after I posted pics on FB & IG of the ones I made last week. Here’s one set for a neighbor:
That same neighbor took the other cozies to her work and not only sold those but one of her co-workers asked for more in specific colors. These are almost done, just need to top-stitch around the outside.
I did make a very little bit of progress on a new tshirt quilt commission. This is for a different neighbor whose daughter turned 12 recently. She’s provided shirts from baby to pre-teen sizes and a few gymnastics leotards too. This is going to be interesting!! Here are the few shirts I’ve cut so far
And lastly, I’ve also taken another new commission – this one is going to be very tricky for me. Yet another neighbor asked me to take her wedding dress and make two small quilts out of it for her two daughters (one in college the other in high school). She was quite adamant that she does not want either of her daughters to wear her dress but wants to use it to give them a memento…so…I’ve been scouring Google and Pinterest for ideas. Here’s the front & back of the dress
There’s plenty of fabric to work with but I’ve NEVER worked with this fabric before…so if you have any pointers or suggestions, PLEASE help a girl out!! 😀
That’s about it for now…I’ll be watching football later today – here are my pics:
