Sew Little Sewing

With the long weekend and ample sunshine my sewing machine was a bit neglected. But I did find a few neat things at the flea market!!  A flowery vintage sheet and a green glass float! 

And yes, that's Sammy's paw in my picture.  She can nearly get up on my desk... growing like a weed and getting so tall.

Crewel Spring Flowers
I have started another flower and am enjoying every stitch!

Star Struck
Star quilt-a-long by Melissa at Happy Quilting.

I finally made my first star last week.  I am using a stack of vintage sheets for the stars and the brown is a mocha flannel.  The combo of soft sheet and flannel is dreamy soft!!  I am so ready to cut and assemble a few more!
Katie Fiber Art
A long neglected project.  I have actually scrapped the past one and started over with a different technique.  Here is a preview of where I am with it, but I am going to write a whole post up to with more details soon!


I am looking froward to getting back to this one, but decided I needed a finish, so this one was put aside. 

Big Blue

Still waiting for one last sashing row to be cut out and attached. 

Still thinking about putting a border on this one as well.

X Marks the Spot

Haven't started quilting this yet. 

I need to clean off my desk and just give this a go!

Woof! Woof! LOVE your Happy HIPPO! Mom was sewing some stuffs for our show this coming weekend n got lots of extra fabrics ... and got an idea (basically she'll teach herself something new ...) can you recommend a good tutorial for "binding" (doing the border around it ... let us know (send us an email)). Golden Thanks. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
