Keeping Busy!

I made a fun sewing machine cover for my dear friend Suzanne as a birthday present!


She asked for bright fabrics, so bright fabrics she got!!


Both outside and inside!!  Really fun to make!!


Next, I pulled out a quilt kit I bought over a year ago from Connecting Threads.


I love this simple little quilt made of super easy half-square triangle blocks. 


I think you could use just about any fabric and it would be such a dynamic quilt!!


A great scrap buster, right?!!


I found a fun multicolored fabric in my stash for the backing!  YAY!!


Then I used the super cool Waterloque app to turn this photo…


into this cool watercolor!!


Today I started on this month’s Schnibble,  Hook!


I’m just waiting for the background fabric I ordered from Etsy today to get here!!


What are you working on?  Has spring arrived in your town yet??? (image below from Google) 

We are soooo yearning for  it here in northern Virginia!!

  4. Beautiful projects - especially that HST quilt with the black - just makes the colors pop. Clever sewing machine cover design with the tie sides.

    Spring is here temporarily in SD but we know it won't last. But the idea of a sunny 50 degree day today has me positively giddy!

  5. Wow, I love all of the brights. I saw the Pinterest Friendly Blog button and followed the link to get one of my own, thanks.
