the babys quilt


i decided that it is impossible for me to name a baby before it has arrived. i know some people can do it and it works out well, i can't.

i CAN, however make a quilt before i meet him : ) it was really fun to design but the quilting that i ended up doing was not so much. it took me WAY to long because of all the starting and stopping. i really like the way it turned out though and the minky on the back just adds to the soft and warm feel of it.

hope he likes it!

left overs...

no... not the kind you eat. i'm talking about the kind that you sew.

** FABRIC **

when your buying fabric and making quilts do you find that you ALWAYS have fabric left over. i'm not talking scrap pieces, i'm talking pieces that are large enough to make another project or 2 out of.

i thinks it's inevitable.

i've only had one exception to this rule, and that was with my Deer Valley Quilt i'm currently working on. i ran out of fabric and i only needed a couple more 2 1/2" strips to complete it. (thank goodness my sister is a fabric hoarder and i was able to get some scrap pieces from her! thanks Jill)

WHAT do you do with your left overs??? do you make another quilt? a pillow? do you add them to your scraps???

here's what i made with some of my left overs.
i am in LOVE with these fabrics! they are so cute together.

and check out how the quilting turned out!

it's in the shop!

PROJECT laundry room **PART 2**

the wood wall is up!
this was our FIRST wood project so i thought we should make it an easy one.

AND it was. we LOVE it!

we used pine tung and groove wood for this project.
it was the least expensive with the look that we wanted. the total cost was $70.00.

NOW we just have to put a finish on it... you'll have to wait for those pic's ; )

hope everyone had a good weekend!
