Houston Quilt Show

I'm going to the Houston Quilt show! It will be my first one, I am so excited. I wish I would have known that they had a meet and greet for bloggers this last weekend earlier so I could have gone to that too but maybe next year. I'll let you know how it is.

Sewing is slow these days

It seems that I have been busy doing lots of things but have no finished projects to show for it. So I will show you all pictures of the finished top and back to a quilt I'm making for my youngest son. He is really into cars and trucks.

Nursing cover

I have been waiting to post about this until I got this blog up and running so here it is. I was teaching a small basic sewing class and this was one of our first projects, (most of the students were young mothers). Here are the fabrics I used. The darker fabric is for the back.
Here is the completed cover all rolled up and ready to go into a diaper bag.

Here is the strap that goes around the mothers neck, it is adjustable which I love.
This is the whole cover, the pattern I used was for a one sided cover but I wanted it to look nice from either side and I also wanted it to be a little larger because I know babies like to wiggle a lot.

It's great to be created!

Hello all this is the new blog for just my crafting whims and anything else I want to talk about. Welcome Please leave a comment so I know you have been here.
