busy as usual

not much quilting has been happening around here the last few weekends because of other life craziness. The first weekend my niece graduated high school and this past weekend was full of fathers day activities.I am doing some sewing but not much I can show off or tell you about right now.

Schnitzel & Boo Mini is in full swing and I am loving it so much that I am very tempted to keep it. All I have left to do is add my extras and then I will be shipping out in a very short 2 weeks. You can expect a full post about this lovely soon. 
I am trying to get a pattern test completed but it's a little tricky and so far my test pieces are not up to my level of satisfaction so I may not be showing that one off for a while.
The spiderwebs top is completed and ready for basting. 
My sewing has been a bit slow recently because I have been having trouble with my feet, so on the non quilting front, I have been working on a crochet kitty. The tricky part with this guy is all the pieces and as anyone that knits or crochets knows the size of the yarn greatly effects the size of the finished project -- well, when I decided to start this project I didn't really think about that and the resulting kitty will be about a foot tall when seated. (Awesome!!)
I am still pondering to Miller Challenge fabrics and have an idea in my head -- and need to push that one closer to reality.

I also received an inquiry about 2 more custom quilts -- that would mean that I would have 6 customs to finish in the next 6 months. How exciting and nerve racking at the same time.

I really hope this weekend is not so busy so that I can get some of these goals wrapped up. Happy Quilting everyone. 


  1. I really like the Wee Wanderer fabric. So cute.

  2. I love that first quilt you have pictured. The way you laid it out is just stunning! I look forward to see what you do with it.

  3. Love those Spiderwebs! And those fussy cuts from Wee Wander? Too cute!

  4. Wow! Your spiderwebs quilt looks great! And love your crochet kitty.

  5. I am totally in love with your spider web. Cannot wait to see how you quilt your mini!
