If you are a fan of hand embroidery as I am, then you have to check out The Painted Quilt. Each first friday of the month she is doing a free embroidery pattern, and they are super cute. I can't wait to start Halloween Hauntings!
You will find her free patterns on the right hand side bar!
I found a couple fabulous tutorials on some blogs and had stashed them away in my "to do vault". I decided to do these for my sister-in-law for her birthday. Here is a very easy fabric flower that I made into a pin. You can find this tutorial here.
Here are some silhouettes of my nieces and nephew. I found this tutorial on Jessica's blog. You should check it out, she has lots of cool stuff!!!
Well I finally got the last piece to my armoire! I put it together yesterday after 5 whopping hours...I was tired to say the least. I hope this helps me finish lots of W.I.P.'s! I plan to put all my current project fabrics on the shelves so they can all stare me in the face each time I open the doors, or sit down to sew!!
I wish I could have blogged about all the wonderful things I have been getting done in my new workspace, but that's not going to happen. After picking up my armoire packages from Menards we found that one side of the unit was all cracked and damaged, so it may be 2 more weeks before I get my new piece....such a bummer! I am so eager to jump back on the quilting wagon!!
Last weekend Max and I took a trip with my aunt, grandma, and grandpa. We went to New Ulm, MN for Oktoberfest. It was a ton of fun and such great memories were made there! Here are some pictures from that trip...
