This Week : :

Did this week go by fast for you, too? Holy smokes, it's Thursday already! I spent most of my sewing time this week working on etsy orders, all new versions of items I've already shared here. So today I thought I'd share a few of my favorite photos from the week --

Stitching with Stitch!

Have you seen Betz White's new fabric line Stitch? It's GOTS certified organic and was completely inspired by her love of handwork. It's so lovely and is available in the shop of my sponsor Fat Quarter Shop. I'll be sharing more of this project, along with a Stitch giveaway, soon!

Playing with Lily!

She's either serious, silly, or sleeping. Look at those beautiful blue eyes!

Lily -- so serious!

Vintage finds! More Pyrex --

And, I love the color of this large enamel bowl. I found these two on Monday along with my new quilt.

Thank you all so much for the thrifted quilt help, and for having a good laugh with me on my poor husband's behalf. He thought it was hilarious and I even put together a few more just for him that I may just have to share here, too! Maybe we should all make one and have a linky party or something? A Handmade Husband (or partner) day! It would be so funny!

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for my Poetica giveaway! I wish you all a wonderful day!!

Glad you've been having lots of sewy and thrifty fun this week. I've not been having much fun with a chest infection, but I've been industrious and churned out a quilt top, and about 90% of a couple of small items for my FTLOS partner

I'm really hoping to hit my favorite spots this weekend and find something fabulous! Your husband is such a good sport!

Rebecca said...

Ha Ha, That would be hilarious! Our favourite "in joke" here is "I could make that" or "we could cover that" I absolutely love those colours!!!! I just made a diary cover for my daughter and it ended up all browns turquoise, purples and blues! It looked stunning! Now I want to try a quilt with those colours!

Loved the cat pics. I have a tuxedo cat, too.
I will definitely be back Friday -- LOVE Poetica (and every other fabric Pat Bravo ever designed, I think).

Gorgeous quilt - can't wait to see more. Beautiful cat. And ending with vintage pyrex? Icing on the cake. I have that same casserole dish (with the red and orange birds) in my overly large collection. Truly awesome stuff.
