New MBS!

Just thought I'd share these lovely fabrics that came in the mail last week from Moda!  These will magically turn into my next Moda Bake Shop project (hopefully soon!)  Of course they are like the most girly fabrics ever and all I can think about is having a little boy!!  Ya'll should definitely buy some of this fabric line, it's so pretty and did you see that houndstooth?? LOVE!

And I don't know about you, but don't you like sleeping in scrap bins?  LOL!!!  I'm sewing and look to my right and see this pretty girl laying in the yellow scrap bin!  Izzy decided that it was too full so she pushed some out and then layed in it!  Looks comfortable right? HA!  What would I do without these crazy cats?!?!

New Dress!

What does an old tank top, a yardish of fabric and some elastic equal????   A cute new maternity dress!  I'm pretty sure I can wear this after baby too!!  I love how this turned out!  I don't normally make clothes but I was kinda in the mood today; what do ya'll think??

It's a..................


I know it's the same photo as before but oh well!! I just wanted to let everyone know that Jon and I are having a BOY!!!  We are so excited and can't wait to meet our little man!  Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes!  Pregnancy is going well and everything looked good at the ultrasound!  Now it's time to get sewing :)

I have a few custom quilts coming up that I need to make by Thanksgiving and today I went fabric shopping!!!  I was there for a while and came home with all of these lovelies!!

The first three photos are for custom quilts I will be working on and the last photo is of a couple awesomes that I had to get for myself.  Who goes fabric shopping and doesn't buy for their stash right?? :) 

Enjoy the fabric porn!!

MMM Swap

I participated in the Make Mine Modern Swap again!!  Today was the deadline to send and I made it just in time!  I highly recommend participating in this swap, it's always super fun and inspiring!
Here is what I made for my partner!  She hasn't received it yet so I can't say too much about it because I don't want to give it away!   I forgot to take a photo of all the goodies so hopefully she will when she gets them!  I made her this pillow that was inspired by a quilt made by the amazing Tula Pink!!  What do ya'll think??

Rip Rip Rip Challenge

Two meetings ago at the STLMQG we were presented with the Rip, Rip, Rip Challenge.

Here were the official rules: You must make something (quilt, table runner, market bag, etc) that is bigger then a placement using 4 of the 5 fabrics that you received during the Ripping game. You can add any additional fabrics that you choose, just make sure that each of the 4 fabrics are clearly represented somewhere in the project. You may be asked to point them out, so be prepared. The finished item must be brought to the August 13th meeting, in order for you to be eligible for any prizes.
Think creatively and have fun!!

This was a super fun challenge and here is what I came up with!  I started with least lovely fabrics:

I brought the dots on the left and came home with the rest!

Here is what I came up with:

A cathedral windows pillow!!!  I used all 5 of the fabrics I received plus I added the white solid to tone it down a bit and really love how this pillow turned out!!  What do ya'll think? 
Here is the back of the pillow!!

Man, does it feel good to be sewing again!!! YEAH!!

And I'm back!!

Hey ya'll,
I know it's been awhile and I'm sorry!  The hubby and I are pretty much all moved in to our 1st house and we couldn't be more excited!! It's everything we've always wanted and we just LOVE our house!!  Once I finish organizing my sewing room (yep I have a large sewing room that is amazing) I will post some photos!  First, I thought I'd give you an update on our little one!  I will be 16 weeks tomorrow and this pregnancy has been wonderful!  The first trimester was great, I did not have any morning sickness or throw up ever (still thanking God for that!!) the only thing was that I was SUPER tired all of the time!! That was an adjustment going from a super hyper person to being dead tired! But now I'm into the second trimester and have my energy back!! Woo hoo just in time to sew sew sew!!  We find out what this little nuggest is on the 25th and I can't wait!  Of course I'm making all of the nursery decor so I can't wait to find out so I can get going on that while I still can!  I haven't sewn too much lately because of the move.  I did make some felt food for my nephews birthday!  I'll share photos of that later this week!  For now I will leave ya'll with this photo of my belly!  Yes, those are maternity shorts and if you're wondering, AMAZING, it's like wearing jammies all day long and not looking like a slob!  :)  I'm so excited to be back in blogland...I've missed it!!
