Ninja power

Hopefully two new mascots for my youth camp team. :) The first one I tried to sew was so pathetic looking, I'm not going to even show you. I think these are pretty good. They're complete with shuriken and ninja weapons.
The thing on his leg is not a bandage its a weapon holder. 
a little bag for holding all the cool stuff ninja need. The ribbon loops on the back of them is so I can hook them on my backpack.

trying to be stealthy.

New Quilt

A sneak peak at the new quilt I'm working on. I am loving this one. (pats herself on the back) I found that I like to use very busy fabric for the stuff I sew. I wanted to make a quilt but not have it hurt anyone's eyes to look at it. So I decided to make a modified coin quilt with lots of white fabric so that I could still use all the fabrics I love, without it looking jumbled. Phew! Long sentence. 
close up :)

Oh, and guess what I found? Heather Ross fat quarter packs! Autumn  did a post on how she found Heather Ross packs at Jo ann's. I didn't really think the Jo ann's near me would have them, but lo and behold they did!

Cabin blocks

I started making cabin blocks this week and I can't stop! I've always loved the look of them, but I thought they looked too complicated to make. Then I realized it's really quite simple! I really want my next quilt to be all cabin blocks. Making them helps me use up a lot of my scraps too. 
I tried to use kind of a color theme for this one...sort of
This is just a crazy one 
I made another zippy pouch and I incorporated an embroidery I did of a tape. I seem to be loving anything tape-themed thing these days....

close up of the embroidery, I have a second one I'm working on too.

Things from my (not very far) travels

Some japanese fabric from shop in Lancaster. Love the bunny's. I can't wait to make another quilt.  :D A new notebook from Borders for doodles and the like. Also I got a bunch of yellow legal pads from Staples. I know that doesn't sound very exciting, but these are great for doodling and decoupage.
