Art & Espresso

The store held another Art and Espresso last weekend, and this time I was actually prepared! Here are some photos of my table.

That pink tree is Tonya's with all of the cute ornaments she made. But I will be needing one because it looked so good on the table.

Two of the main things I made were once again using Keyka Lou patterns. I whipped out several of her camera wristlets and laptop cases, and I think they turned out adorable.

I also managed to make taggie blankets, crayon rolls, tissue holders, baby blankets, and jewelry.

And here is my new jewelry display.... Jennifer gave me the idea a long time ago and I haven't been able able to get it out of my head. Thanks Jennifer!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Little Apples Quilt

It's done! And I love it. The fabric is Little Apples by Aneela Hoey through Moda. I love her fabrics and can't wait for her next one to come out. Sadly The last line didn't go over too well in the store (I think I bought most of it) but hopefully this one will do better.

The pattern is called "A Penny For Your Thoughts" by The Teachers Pet, I think (it may be vice versa). The Pattern has the same 3 or 4 fabrics used all throughout but I was able to squeeze everything out a single layer cake with a couple yards of sashing.

This last photo of it hanging up ready to help sell this awesome line in the store.

Ditty Bag and Apples

A while back Beth kindly hinted towards wanting a hot pink mermaid make-up bag. To prove that sometimes and I can be nice I made her one.

Now i'm really jealous of it. The pattern is by keyka lou and if you haven't already bought from her I highly recommend you do. Her patterns are easy to read, you can sell your finished projects, and they're cheap.

The fabric is Mendocino by Heather Ross with some basic blue polka dots. And just because I threw on a crystal and a little octopus charm.

Today my day looks a lot like this if things go well. Hot Chocolate, The Middle, and sewing up some Little Apples finally. I'll show you the finished quilt soon (as in the top part...)

Also I'm going to try really hard to start blogging again, and commenting on everyone else's posts. Sorry about being the silent stalker for the past forever. Oh, and email everyone I owe emails to!
