epic sewing week{end}

school’s out for summer, and i decided to take a week off before starting back up at my other job.

to keep my scatter brained self organized, i made a to list for each day of the week, to try to keep myself on schedule.

i also FINALLY finished rebinding the “lovely little forest” quilted wall hanging i started WAY back last july, for the ho, ho, ho blog hop. i even added cute pockets in the corner for when i actually hang it. yay!

as far as sunday stash goes…

since posting about the pillows i made for my baby sis, i have had two people place orders. one wants a set of purdue pillows just like them, and the other is tori’s best friend, who wants a set of iu (indiana university) ones as similar as can be. i got all the fabric i need for the iu pillows. i got them all washed, cut, and ready…but i can’t post them yet, because she follows me, and wants them to be a surprise 🙂

i got these two ds fabrics on super clearance. (drool)

i got this adorable flannel, and planned to use it for a friend that is expecting, but doesn’t want to find out the sex of the baby. why do you guys do this to me?! grrrr. i think it is too cute, and planned to use teal, black and white, and bind it with red…however, a lot of people are saying it leans more toward girl than boy, and therefore isn’t gender neutral. what do you all think?

and finally, i got this beige faux leather/vinyl on SUPER SUPER clearance! i have never sewn with it before, and didn’t know if my machine would be able to handle it or not, but i have something pretty amazing in the works with it right now, and am really hoping with all of my might that it turns out as cool as i want it to. i am also using this INCREDIBLE (and incredibly expensive) map fabric for the same project. say a prayer for me! if it turns out, i might start selling them, but i am getting way ahead of myself. i know i will for sure come straight home from work tomorrow and finish it right away. i was on a roll today, but had to stop to make father’s day dinner for my daddy.

i also did a crap ton around the house, but i am going to write about that over on my personal blog, if you’d like to follow me there.

feels great to get so many projects completed in such a short amount of time. i guess i really can be productive if i focus and put my mind to it! and after binding so many projects all at once, i feel A LOT more comfortable with the process and think i’ve almost got it down pat…a huge quilting milestone for me! all smiles over here!
