My quilting comback!

Has it really been 4 months since I posted? whoa. ha. This quilt was commissioned by a friend who has waited diligently for this. Since Aug. I have had to deal with moving twice, a terrible breakup, and losing my job! I kinda lost touch with quilting, but quickly remembered how therapeutic it is for me. Well IM BACK! the quilting queen has returned and is ready to rock n roll! So enjoy the quilt keep an eye out for many more to come!

Mcgruff's New Outfit!

I went to this awesome little shop in Chicago called "tail's in the city" if you are a doggie lover like me I suggest you try to make it there if your in the big windy city! Its soooo totally worth it! :) Mcgruff loves to dress up too. He can put is head and legs in the shirt on his own because he loves it so much...after he is dressed he prances around the houses like hes king! lol He always likes to go bye bye when hes dressed up also because he can show off and get all the treats and attention! ha! :) hes my baby!

My chicago/bachelorette trip!

This past weekend I planned a girls weekend to chicago that turned into my bachelorette party two of my friend flew in from DC, one came from Wisconsin and 1 from Iowa. We met up at the Marriott in Chicago...friday we ordered in the famous chicago pizza and just had ourselves a few drinks ;) lol...saturday was all day downtown where we sorta ended up splitting into two groups cuz we wanted to do some different things. Overall it was a splendid weekend and we all had a blast! :) Here are a few of my favorite pictures!!

Happy Fathers Day

Since I can't be with my dad today I figured I would share some photos of him. Brock and I will be celebrating Fathers Day with him on July 4th instead. Since he lives like 5 hours away, its hard to get away so much. The first picture is of my father when he was in college just a little younger than I am right now. The second picture was taken not to long ago! lol what a change! :)

I know I shouldn't but....

we got some new prints in at our store today....well not exactly new but since we buy fabric in bulk we get extra discounts so sometimes we get TONS of boxes and have to store it upstairs in boxes until we have room, anyways I pulled some of it down today to put online and found some great prints! A total of 9 yards...I used to just get one yard of each print I liked, but I found I always needed more so if I like a print I totally get 2 or more yards of never know what you can use it for! heres what I found! :) enjoy!

So many Sewing Projects!

I've been crazy busy with all my sewing projects lately so I thought I would share what I have been buying/sewing! I couldnt believe all my collections once I got them all out and stacked them up! lol I just finished a park slope and mermaid quilt which I haven't taken pictures of yet but here are my collections and projects in the works! :) enjoy!

This picture is of some of the collections i've recently bought. They include:

1.) in the pink
2.) Twiggy
3.) Neptune
4.) Wildwood
5.) Frosted memories
6.) Arcadia

These fabrics I am doing a dot quilt which I found the in latest american patchwork magazine I believe. It will be my first big attempt at applique. I shot some pictures of the quilt I am going to do also.

The next few pictures are of my black and white quilt, the red is for the binding...which I thought would really make the quilt "pop"! I'm doing the coin stack quilt pattern for this one. The other two are some other projects that I have cut and ready to go just haven't had the time to finish them! lol
