I’m late to the party but have decided on my fabric for the #sugarskullqal hosted by @birdieanddotfabrics I’m going with #libselliotttattooed and moda grunge as the background. I’m excited to get started this evening!
Here is my “test block” for the #siennaburstqal ... and a picture of myself and my littles 😊(we are waiting for swimming lessons). My block isn’t perfect as it’s not matching up.. I thought I was super duper careful in cutting and sewing but something is off... this will most likely still make it into the quilt as time is scarce. If my skills have improved with the next 15 blocks, maybe I’ll remake it 🤷🏻♀️ these blocks are definitely a test of accuracy... cutting, sewing, trimming all have to be perfect. I’ve already learned something new from @thencamejune 😄😄 Thanks for this QAL! #libselliotttattooed @libselliott
Day 22 of #qpbestyearever2018 Color
Who can pick just one favorite color with a rainbow like this? FINALLY got my hands on this smidgen of rainbow goodness 😍. I don't have much of each color so I'll have to he extra picky when I use them! #libselliotttattooed
This is a shitty Christmas. I know it could absolutely be worse, but I'm working through my own family issues on so many levels. This is the 9th year I've asked Santa to bring us a baby and he has a less than stellar track record. My dad is still working his way through chemo. My mom is still not a part of our family. It's gotten so bad that instead of spending Christmas with my family we're leaving the province. But my brain is still in the same grooves that it always has been, so I got it in my head that I was making a mug rug for my mom. I realized as I was sitting there trying to force myself to work on it that it is just not worth my sanity. I stopped. I'm not making anything for her for Christmas. And I feel so much better. But then I finished FOR MYSELF because I appreciate the things that a make. I feel triumphant. And strong. Because I am. And because it's not my fault that she can't be. #mugrug#starsandsunshinepattern#libselliotttattooed
My favourite #sewminime is my otter brothers pillow made with my extended version of @tartankiwi's #otterlyadorable pattern, using #libselliotttruelove and #libselliotttattooed . I love how they turned out, I love the goofy mustache I quilted on one of the otters, and I LOVED fussy cutting all the cool motifs from the background print. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, @gogokim and @sewsweetness while I'm #missingmarket !
