Custom Orders

 Over the last 6 months or so I've had some custom orders on Etsy. I had a request for a Iron man inspired jellyfish complete with an apple. (heaven knows why) I also had someone request a purple jellyfish with orange eyes. Which turned out super adorable.
Below is a knightly dinosaur complete with sword ready to fight deadly foes.
Kudos to the girl who asked for the dino, tons of creative idea points go to her. 

A lavender top hat wearing octopus was requested as well, cause why not?

Vintage Cross Quilt

 My best friend is getting married this summer and this is the wedding quilt I made for her. I used kona solids and a variety of vintage sheets.

      Cross stitch of their wedding date

Giant Octopus!

 Had someone contact me on Etsy and ask for a custom GIANT octopus. This was a ridiculously big project for me, but I love the end result. Hands down the biggest plushie I've ever made!
 Now just to ship this beast!

Finished Cross Stitch

I finished this cross stitch last December but (cough) never posted it. These are lyrics from one of my favorite worship songs. As you can see I made a few (maybe a lot ) of mistakes in this piece. In my defense it was my first large cross stitch project. Now to find a frame to fit it.

Solid Log Cabin Quilt

 I saw this quilt block on pinterest awhile ago and knew right away I wanted to make a quilt with this design. I made this particular quilt for a friends birthday, but I am determined to make another one for myself. It just came out so pretty!
 The back was made up from scraps and a couple blocks I made from leftover solids. I am particularly fond of the pixel-ish block on the left.
 *sigh* So pretty.

Erik's Geektastic Quilt

 This past Christmas I made my little brother a geek quilt incorporating Star Wars, Marvel, Star Trek and DC. I used a variation of a "Shoo fly" block.
 The back is mostly from leftover yardage and a bit of scrap patchwork in the middle.

Jace's Baby Quilt

 Quilt for my nephew who's due in December. My sister asked for a pretty simplistic quilt, so solid colors and herringbone was the result

 Embroidered his name on the back.

Meagan's Circle Quilt

 A birthday/housewarming for a good friend of mine. Used a UFO (unfinished object) I had lying around for part of the back. This one from way back then.

Diamond Wedding Quilt

 A good friend of mine is getting married this Sunday and this is the wedding quilt I made for her and her husband to be. Love this pattern, love the colors. LOVE how fast this went.
I just pieced together odds and ends for the back. Pay no attention to the weird puckering.

I won't lie, I was sorely tempted to keep this one. I am glad that it's found a nice home now.

Mini Hexagons

This is one of those "I feel suddenly inspired to finish off some old projects!" These hexagon pieces have been lying in my workbasket longer than I'd like to admit. Now they are quilted, binded and ready to be used.

 This one is using smaller hexagons, which makes it more time consuming, but I think the end result is lovely. This one is definitely staying with me.
I used a mixture of vintage scraps and quilting fabric leftovers for the hexagons and binding.

 If you have ever been to a library book sale I'm sure you'll be able to relate to the drawing above.
 Sulky boy is sulky. The motif is inspired by Mucha. Thank goodness I don't have to say that out loud. I was at a con once and commented that a drawing looked Mucha inspired. Feeling very proud of myself for being able to remember an artist and recognize their style, she then replied that yes it was and "It's pronounced MucHA" I don't reference artists anymore.

Sun Power 2x

 It wasn't too long after I posted my first sun plushie on Etsy, that I got a request for two suns. The woman ordering them asked if one of the suns could be more girly and the other more boyish, as she was purchasing them for her son and daughter.
 Here's the end result
All made up and ready to be loved and squished

Mushroom Rattle

The plethora of baby showers happening in my church sparked a need for a new baby item. My mom knit a lovely baby sweater and asked if I could make a mushroom rattle to go with it. The rattle was well received at the shower and lo, requests for baby rattles are coming in. I'll soon have a listing for the rattle in my shop available in four colors, so stay posted.

Doodles

 So not too long ago my family and I re-watched the original series and thus, this doodle came into   existence. As you can see, Kirk has already filled his shirt-ripping quota for this episode.
 Also some older doodles from when Spiderman first came out.
 Oh and when I read Fahrenheit 451 I got super inspired and came up with their logo

Sherlock Embroidery

 I had a Sherlock Embroidery idea come to me last week, so I sketched out a design and transferred it to  fabric.
Hand-stiched on cotton and framed

          Here's my original sketch. The embroidery is now available in my Etsy
