I thought up this design for a couch quilt a while back. I've made a lot of quilts but none of them are very wide, which means the guy on the end of the couch gets cold toes. Solution! Make a really wide quilt! Ta da!!
I went to a closing sale at a fabric store (which is very sad) but luckily I found Momo's "Its a hoot" fabric and I got a few yards for the backing. I love this fabric!

This is a quilt I recently made for a co-worker who just lost a loved one to cancer. I started running out of white fabric so I just grabbed some solids and improvised. I kind of like the result.
I used a charm pack of Momo's "Its a hoot" fabric (if anyone cares) for the pinwheels
I used a polka dot sheet for the backing

New octopi added to the shop! Here we have a angry ninja octopus. Careful! He has a shuriken!
And this is a very shy and quiet ninja octopus, which makes her very stealthy

So I've been trying to explore making other plushies besides octopuses, so I've been experimenting
I was trying to make a bowl of ramen but it turned into a turtle :)
I also made a rather odd looking squid.....

P.S do you like my new logo?

I used part of the pattern from the "I heart patchwork" book. So much easier than having to come up with my own pattern! I tried something different and went with a rounded corner for the binding.

This quilt has been laying dormant for awhile after I shoved it guiltily into the "half done projects" basket a few months ago. (hangs head) I pulled it out recently and decided to finish it. Its based on my great grandmothers quilt we lost in the fire. I really loved that quilt so I wanted to make one that was similar. I used almost all vintage fabrics and the green fabric is almost the same color as my great grandmothers. I decided to hand tie quilt it too.

I went fabric shopping this past weekend with friends, got a lot of good stuff and may have spread the fabric addiction to one of my best friends. :) Found this Amy butler print and decided I was going to try to plunge into sewing clothing and make myself a skirt. It wasn't much of a plunge, because all that it took to make this was some elastic and straight sewing. I used this tutorial and seriously anyone can make this, it took me about 30 minutes in all.
Hope you all are having a good Valentines day!!

Wow, my 100th post...only took me 2 years. :) Above is a patchwork quilt I made in November. I was very cold at the time and wanted another quilt and fast, so I used 7inch squares.
Here is a scarf/shawl I finished recently using super wash merino. I love super wash merino, if I could only use one yarn for the rest of my life, it would be that. The hat below is also merino.
Also I made this striped intarsia hat complete with pom pom. That was a must.

So I've been busy making mushroom-y things. Such as some plushies and I framed a mushroom embroidery I made. I've been making the plushies in the expectancy of opening my shop in the near future.
What can I say? I love mushrooms!

This quilt I made in October for my best friend's birthday. I used the friendship star pattern and she loves blues and greens so I tried to keep it in those colors.
