It’s nice to see my “stuff” being used

Jelly Roll Quilt Along Update

I decided to join the Jelly Roll Quilt Along over at Moose on the Porch.  I blogged about blocks 1 and 2  here.   Well, I finally finished blocks 3 and 4.



I’m not crazy about the fabric but I bought the jelly roll for a project that never happened.  I’m trying to use it up.  I think in the end this will be  a nice quilt.

Baby Shower Presents for Andrea

I’ve had most of these items done for a while but couldn’t post for fear that Andrea would see them.  We had a shower for her last week at work.  Most of what I gave was handmade.  A diaper bag featuring some Amy Butler fabric:


This bag is great.  It’s large, roomy, and has lots of pockets.  There are 2 pockets on either side on the outside of the bag.  Both of these have elastic on top.  2 more pockets on the front and a few more inside.  She really liked this!   Next up is a pair of booties that I crocheted.  I added glass vintage buttons for closures.  Please hand wash Andrea!


Andrea is having a boy.  I struggle with boy things but I think these booties look pretty macho.  I like doing machine applique so I decided to decorate a onesie.


Of course no New England baby can live without New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox bibs and matching burp cloths.


And lastly (and perhaps my favorite) stuffed binky buddies made from felt.

Project updates

I made another posh pillowcase.  This one was for Lisa’s daughter Rebecca.


This one wasn’t as fun to make because the yarn I used for the crochet edge was constantly worming.  The color was perfect so I kept on.  I already have more fabric washed and ready to go for a few more of these.  Totally addicting!

I recently decided to join the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along over at Moose on the Porch.  I had purchased a jelly roll a while back for a particular project that never came to be.  I figured this would be a great use for this fabric.  Here are blocks 1 and 2:



The fabric is Hushabye by Tula Pink.  Not my favorite colors but I’m hoping that the finished product will be pretty.

Apron club update…3 more blocks completed.  Yeah.  I’m desperately trying to keep up.  I’m afraid that the blocks will get tossed aside if I fall behind.



Once again I’m a little disappointed with the contrast between the background fabric and the apron fabric on the top one.  It actually looks better in person than the picture.   I should receive the next block some time this week.   That’s really the most fun with these BOM’s…getting surprises in the mail.

We have 2 little tables with glass fronts in our kitchen.  We stick all sorts of things in there and it was getting a little unsightly.  I took some of my favorite Anna Maria Horner fabric from her new Good Folks collection and lined the inside doors with it.  What a difference.  I love the way it looks now. 


Until next time.
