This skirt was quite an ordeal. I kept buying the wrong size pattern and found out the orginal fabric I wanted to use wasn't enough yardage. Kerfuffle after kerfuffle and months of letting the pattern and fabric hide in the closet I finally got up the courage to make this simplicity skirt (1369). I had to adjust the back seam twice because it came out HUGE. Simplicity right? Isn't this supposed to be simple? Ah well, it's done and I'm okay - ish with it. Points for having pockets and a cute print. Negative points for making me feel like a poofy muffin.

Finished this crazy colorful quilt! It's full of mistakes and quirks but I love it! I was able to use all the scrap triangles from the flying geese to make hst and incorporate them in the quilt. I also had random orphan blocks that I was able to throw in the mix as well. I mostly machine quilted this and then went back over certain sections and hand quilted just for an extra finishing touch.

I've been wanting to recover one of my desk chair pillows and decided to make it from scraps using paper piecing. There's quite a bit of Star Trek fabric in it, which is funny because I finished it the weekend the new movie came out!

Been playing around scraps and enjoying making random words with my new paper piecing alphabet pattern I got off Etsy. I've also been sewing random sizes of diamonds that will hopefully one day be a quilt. I finished a mini quilt for my mom for Mothers Day with her favorite catchphrase "Just Saying". I finished knitting my "Libbey shawl" and my hexagon mini quilt which is now hanging on my wall.

My Niece was born last week! Here's the quilt I made her. I tried to stick to only a couple different fabrics as well as a color theme. It's hard! I just want everything to be multicolored
I used a neon green grid fabric for the back
