February is going to be HUGE!

Let me dust off this little blog of mine and get right to the biz!  I have some projects to share that need some recognition as they have been sitting around for a while waiting for their special debut.

I did a test block for Kristy at Quiet Play recently.  Then decided this would be a very good pillow for that blondie of mine:):):)

I AM BATMAN!  I used Katy's excellent and FUN tutorial for making an envelope backed pillow and it was sooo easy!  Thanks Katy!

Kona Blue solid and Brooklyn Heights by Kitty Yoshida

Easy echo quilting and Viola!  a brand new 16" pillow ready for my Ayden!

I made a skirt too WITHOUT a pattern.  First time.  Turned out better than I expected!!  Hip,hip Hooray!  Kudos to my sewing buddy, Brittany;)  She showed me how to do it all from start to finish.

The other day I had a wonderful surprise email from my friend Pam telling me I won some Happy Go Lucky fabric!!!!  Made this girl's day complete.

Isn't it pretty?!

Well we are leaving next week Friday and I am very tickled pink to be going up to see family, some that I haven't seen in years and 1 new family member that was born last month.  My niece, Natalia!!  I will be getting pics of all her cuteness and with her quilt I made her.

Now you are probably wondering what the title of this post entails.  Hmmm.....

Thinking I should make ya'll guess!!

So much more fun that way:)

Guess away.......

your paper piecing looks fabulous, and I'm sure your little guy will love it! I'm so impressed with your skirt- I am a sewing chicken when it comes to something other than quilts, haha!

Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!

Congrats on the skirt! That is quite impressive. :)

I have a guess, but I refuse to guess that on people so I'll just have to wait and see what you tell us.

The skirt is too cute! I'm just entering into the world of upcycle clothing and am excited at sewing sans pattern. Your skirt turned out cute.

What a great pillow, I love it!

Freda Fields Alley said...

I'm sure your little blondie is loving that pillow... it turned out great!

Hope you have a wonderful family vacation... safe travels!

Like Susan Owenby, I don't guess what I'm thinking your news might be about folks unless I know they're past menopause.

Wow, cool skirt, and without a pattern--love it! Love the pillow, too. I wish I'd thought of making something like that when my kids were growing up. Thanks for sharing!
