A Cake Walk Finish!

Such a joy to get the opportunity to make a quilt for someone...
especially something that you hope will be with them for some time to come...


 This one...as they are all, will be missed...
But hopefully really loved in it's new home...
 
That's my finish this week...anyone else have one to share?

It's a Cake Walk...

It's rare that I get an ENTIRE weekend to sew...
But I did this past weekend!






I started a new baby quilt and I must say, it was sooo easy-peasy!
It's a pattern from a book called Fast Fat Quarter Quilts, and the pattern
is called 
Cocoa Cakewalk...


 
I just changed to the colors I wanted
and here is my offering for today...
 


I will quilt and bind it tonight, so check back or watch on Instagram for the
finished quilt!
 
Happy Monday All!!!

Things on a list...






I think that everyone growing up had a Christmas "wish list", I know I did...
But when I became a grown up...
I lost that list...did you?
Have you seen yours lately?
 
Well, this week...
I received an unexpected, sweet phone call
that reminded me that I not only should find that list,
but that I should put it up all around me so I could see it!
 
Sound strange? Maybe.
Now that I am officially back in the empty-nester world, 
I think I should drag that list out, dust it off
and remember that everyone should dream!
 
And here's my dream...
 

 
You are looking at the Aussie Sewing Cabinet  by Kangaroo Kabinets in White Ash...


 
Wow...I would have a drawer!!!!

 
 
Just sit and soak that in...will you...
(all puns intended!)
Man.
I know....right???
The cabinet even folds up so when I have company
I can keep little fingers out of danger!
 
 
You see, I have a heavy sewing machine
just sitting on a $35 Wal-Mart folding table...
and don't get me wrong, I am so THANKFUL to have it!
 
 
But I sew slower so I don't bounce my machine onto the floor
and topple myself over in the process!!!
 
Sew there... that is my wish list...
there are only two items on it, but
wishes just the same.
 
 
 
What's on your list?
Inquiring minds want to know...
 
 
Happy Thursday!
