Better pictures


Add a pair of shorts to the done pile

Kris wanted a pair of lounge shorts. So. 
She picked two different fabrics. This side is planets and
This side is a galaxy sparkle print. There cute on her. I know bad pictures lighting sucked


Two sewing projects done

I cut these out months ago and they have been sitting on my extra chair since. Mj asked for them and when we picked fabric he said I should make myself a pair too
I am talking about pj pants

I did discover something sewing his together. Late at night is not the time to cut fabric. 
His TARDISs are upside down. Rookie mistake. He doesn't care. Sweet thing he is.

I can see this as something addicting

It took me over two hours to undo my boo boo last night. I did manage to pin it the right way and start sewing today. Quilting it will take some time but the end is with in sight. 

I also finished the hexagons and sewed them together. 
Mug rug - basically a mini quilt in oversized coaster form. Big enough for a mug and a snack (like cookies)

I will machine see the first half of the binding on then hand sew the rest.

Proof that I am not perfect


When it comes to crafting my children think I don't make mistakes. Of course I do, all the time in fact. I have just become good at fixing or covering them. 

This time there really is no way to fix other the take apart and redo. I have to take out about 25 feet of machine sewing. I layered MJs quilt in the wrong order. I'm doing a bind less quilt and I had the quilt top on top to measure and for some reason didn't reorder before I pinned. Genius I am. 
My view for most likely the next hour :(

The year of the funk

That's what it seems to be. I am seriously still in a crafting funk. Nothing really interests me. I have been doing a little, and I mean little, here and there but nothing really completely finished. 

It took months to do this. It's MJs new quilt since he is in a twin bed (for about a year). It's waiting for quilting and then it will be done. Then the other kids are next. I have 2 already planned and drawn out and I am about 80% with a third. No idea for Codys. 

Another thing I have started
Hexies. Basically turning scraps into something. These will become a mug rug hopefully. They are fast so maybe that's what I need. 

Usually these funks only last a little bit but this is almost 6 months!!  I am even bored with reading!?!?!?! Crazy pants I know. 

Fingers crossed the end is near. There are things I want to do just can't get my self moving
