Sewing is difficult for me these last few days. I am going through a lot of emotional turmoil and sewing is difficult for me. Just can’t focus.

However, before this all started, I managed to somewhat complete my January challenge for the 2015 Inspiration and Design Challenge. I was inspired by Continue reading 2015 Inspiration and Design Challenge – January

One of the sibling quilts is done!

Jelly Roll Quilt

Do you remember my sibling quilt tops? Well, last week I got around to finishing the first top. It was my first quilt in three years and oh boy…it shows. Lots of puckering (up close) and other issues. So about half way in, I decided to make this quilt a practice piece (aka not a gift) and vowed to be more diligent with the second one.

Sorry I was MIA over the holidays. I was sleeping a lot and tried to keep the boat that is this family afloat. Something almost magical (call it a Christmas miracle) happened on the 24th. We were celebrating with friends and as gifts I had made them a tree skirt and stockings. As soon as we entered their house, my friend apologized that they did not have a tree skirt or stockings because she could not find the box she stored them in.
