My pillow for the PTS9 (Pillow Talk Swap) is finally finished and out the door today to its recipient. I title it “Edgar the Poe Pillow”. I have liked the sort of freaky works of Poe since I was a little girl. I enjoy the traditional dresden mixed up a bit. I especially love hand […]

Nevermore

October 8, 2012

I did it. Joined round 9 of The Pillow Talk {Swap} I was creatively stumped for a bit. …While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,… I decided to do a Dresden Block but mix it up a bit. This is what I have so far. …Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad […]

Hexen Blitzen

July 10, 2012

I’m loving Basic Grey’s new “Blitzen” fabric. Look at me making something months ahead… soooo not my nature. Tried out this fabric with just a Charm Pack to see if I would like it. I am not a huge fan of holiday-ish fabrics. I don’t do cutesy. I really like this line! Not much more […]

June 11, 2012

Just a Sample

March 14, 2012

This is just a few pics of my recent fabric purchases. I need to get busy and M A K E something. I have a few Bee blocks to do for Do.Good.Stitches and I’ve been busy making Kongko Cycling Gear hats. This is a very special-request-funky-customized cycling cap. It was fun to create. I am […]

I recently returned from a road trip. Before I left I went a little crazy sewing bags. I made a few with clasp frames and the classy Gathered Clutch from Noodlehead
