These Boots Aren't Made for Walking

 Practical? No. Darling? Yes. Every girl needs a pair of boots. Or two. Come on, brown and black. I whipped these little cuties up for baby M and she loves them. 
 Well, I am sure she would tell me so if she could talk.

I had an easy little pattern and made a few adjustments. Aside from her huge calves, her feet have a certain chubby height to them (why does no one sell baby shoes for babies with FAT feet, not wide, tall!) 

 And who doesn’t love a little velco when we are talking babies!
Too cute! Okay, back to quilting next week, I am off to Vegas to run the Ragnar. Wish me luck!

Sewing Summit!

This last weekend I went to The Sewing Summit and had a wonderful time. I took some great classes on Mini Quilts, Color, Machine Quilting, Photography, and Improv Quilting. Our guild hosted a dinner one night at Blue Lemon and it was great, we are already planning next years. I am trying to commit more time to sewing and hope to do more bees and swaps. I only wish I had take some pictures. 

 So my first project to cross off my list was my bee block for La Beeda Loca for Brooke.
Next I am pairing this up with some nice red wool felt and I can't wait to show it off when I'm done!
So glad I got to go to the summit, be inspired, meet some fabulous people, take home plenty of fabric and swag, and walk away with an overwhelming sense of community. Where else could you be surrounded by so many people who understand the love of fabric!


I finished some pillows last month that I have been too lazy to post. These are just right for my front room during fall. 

 Plus I get to stare at some of my favorite fabrics all the time!

I made these after seeing them at Cluck Cluck Sew that my friend said she wanted to make so we did them together. She is still working on hers, but I am glad I stayed up and finished, I just love them!
