I've had a rough month with a lot of things going on....some really personal that I'd rather not delve into quite yet...but I'm really trying to hold my head up and keep a smile on my face. Sewing helps me do that. It's my escape from reality, my addiction, my drug....whatever you want to call it. I figure as long as it's an outlet, and not illegal it's okay, right? :-)
Let's see....what to show you first???? Hmmmm....
Here are the block I made for my "Hive mates" for the 3x6 Sampler Bee. I was in Hive E (Excellent Paper Piecing)!!! I chose to make a star from the Lucky Stars BOM by Elizabeth Dackson of Don't Call Me Betsy. And if you want to join the BOM you still can!!!! You end up getting 26 (I think) paper pieced patterns for only $15!!!! Just sayin.....
That bottom one was my "practice block" which just so happened to be in my chosen color scheme (a scrappy rainbow), so ya know...it's a nice addition to all of the other blocks I've received! *note to self: TAKE A PICTURE OF ALL THE BLOCKS YOU'VE GOTTEN!!!!* I love the block, it's sooo easy to make, and comes together really fast!
Here is what I made for my Partner for the Modernista Swap. We just finished round 3 "Spicing Up the Bedroom". I had a really rough time deciding what to make for my Partner, but I hope she likes what I did make! (She should be getting it in the mail any day now)
I made her a couple patchwork buckets (You can find the tutorial for those here on Ayumi's blog!) and a cute little mug rug to top it all off. (I threw in some extra goodies too but forgot to take a pic before packing it all up! Sorry!)
Here's all her handmade goodies! I really hope she likes it!
Let's see....what else have I been up to?
I got all my charms cut for the Low Volume Charm Swap that I'm in!!! I love me some low volume, and have a quilt planned as soon as I gather enough fabrics.....
*Be still my heart*
This shot I was just messing around...I'm trying to learn how to take manual pics....I think this one turned out okay....maybe?!?
But that about wraps it up for now.....
OH WAIT!!! I have to tell you, this week coming up my baby (Jordyn) is starting Kindergarten!!!! *tear* I swear it doesn't seem like she should be starting school yet!?!?! Where has the time gone? She is soooo excited though, we got to meet her teacher yesterday. She seems really nice, I'm hoping for a great school year!
See what I mean? She's still just a baby!!!!! (yeah right, I know she's getting big but I don't have to admit it, do I?)
~Hope y'all are having a GREAT DAY!!!!~
