It has been a very busy weekend here! But I stayed up late sewing Friday night and had about three hours all to my self Saturday afternoon to try a little more improv. yay! After the wonderful reaction I received from my first improv piece, I realize that's going to be a tough one to top! I want to make a mini quilt, something much more simple and fun for Valentine's Day, to hang where our advent calendar used to be.
What do you think?
I was inspired by Rachel to try my first curve! And, I used some scraps left over from a little Valentine's Day pillow I made on Friday with this pretty stack of reds and pinks.
Here it is -- my first finished Valentine's Day project! I have a few more ideas, too. We had a lot of fun last year with this holiday! Since we moved just a few short days after Christmas last year and didn't take the time to do much decorating, once February came along, the kiddos were all about it! Paper hearts and garland everywhere, little hearts to keep us warm, and I can never forget that celery stamp project!
If you'd be interested in a little tutorial for this pillow, just let me know! I took lots of pictures hoping someone will say, yes!
In other news, I just received a package of Daisy Janie's Tilly and I have to say, I am seriously in love with this fabric!! I was happy to make a few things for Jan's Quilt Market booth back in October, and as a gift she sent me two gorgeous bundles. One for me and one that I'll be offering in a giveaway here soon! The yellow floral is my absolute favorite...
I also received these new notebooks. Aren't they pretty? One of my goals is to be much more organized with my orders, ideas for projects, and ideas for this blog this year.
The first thing on my list is to turn all of my hanging wips, into some exciting new finishes!! I guess I better stay busy, there's a lot of them!
