Bits and Pieces


A little bit of everything happening...

organizing and project planning.

Hubby found this cute and creative looking guy on his work travels and bought him home.  He's a turtle made out of shells!  I think he looks pretty cool!

I knitted my very first pair of socks!  I think I did very well, for a first time sock knitter!  The pattern I used is Fishnet Anklets from the Purl Bee!

About four months ago, I attempted to piece a hexagon quilt.  I did not have triangle rulers needed for cutting, so I tried measuring and cutting without.  This did not go well.  So, Hubby treated me to a package of 3 Equilateral Triangle rulers from American Jane.  Talk about speedy service, he ordered on Friday before the 4th of July and we received that Tuesday after the holiday!  WOW!  I was so impressed and will definitely order from them again!  Now, I can re-cut the triangles properly and continue on with my hexagon quilt!

I'm starting on a two baby quilts.  One for my dear cousin's first baby due in October; and one for a friend who's baby has arrived!  Here's the pattern I'm using from Melissa Mortenson for Moda Bake Shop!  I love her blog, 'The Polkadot Chair'!  Check it out here.

Completed a skirt for a friend!  I sewed the buttons on last night!


I'm sewing a skirt for moi!

until next time...HAPPY SEWING!
