I've been busy

I can't believe it's been a month and a half since I last posted. Time flies when your busy with life. Aside from taking care of my three boys I have found some time to get some sewing done, I have actually been sewing fairly consistently two to three days a week for a few hours.

I wish I had more pictures to show you all the things I've been sewing but you will have to just wait or live without.

These first few pictures are of a wall hanging that I made to complement some other pieces that I have been making for a client. This wall hanging is the last piece to complete a guest room and bathroom.
I cut out the flowers from a different fabric, laid them out and sewed them on to the back round.
The check is like the picture frame. I love how this is turning out. The picture below is sideways (sorry). I'm considering putting a bird in the corner that doesn't have any flowers in it. What do you think?

My friend was having a girls night PJ party a few weeks ago so I decided to make myself some new pajamas. I picked up the fabric at Joanne's. It's knit fabric, the cream is rib knit.
I haven't worked with knits a whole lot, but they are in hot competition to become one of my favorite fabrics to work with. I know pajama pants are so easy, a little trickier with a knit but still easy. I wanted to make it a bit more of a challenge so I decided to make a shirt too.
I think they turned out great! I didn't have any puckering or stretching as I sewed and I haven't had any popped seams since I've been wearing them either. Oh and they are SOOO comfy!

What kinds of things have you been making lately?

This reminded me of making matching pj bottoms for Colby and I that one time. Remember that? We still have them. HA HA! Cute PjS!
