I got a little etsy crazed this week but all for good reason! a little something for a planned baby quilt (pattern STILL to be determined) and a few somethings for me! don't worry, it's not just going to sit around. I have 8 other fabrics from this line, but the pattern I plan to use needs 12. and it is actually something for me that I am excited to get working on. so now I'll be powering through my "to do" list so I can get to my "for funzies" list.
nowhere to be today or tomorrow, so you'll likely find me bouncing around between my sewing machine & my laptop. happy saturday, y'all!

fabric, fat cats & @falloutboy #pandora station.
no plans once I'm off work tonight, so I'll be bouncing all over between sewing, tshirt painting & tutu making.
happy friday!

yes, I know @falloutboy had a mega announcement today (and yes, I just preordered the album to get the presale info) but I can't help but be nostalgic and jam to the album that made me fall in love with their music.
the new song is a little out there, and a lot different, but believers never die.

here's the full quilt from yesterday's sneak peek! I used @thimbleblossoms' #swoon16 pattern and just used a chunk of it to make the perfect baby sized quilt. fabric is the #tigerlily line by heather ross, and it was just perfect for the former ballerina momma to be. if I'm still teaching dance classes in 2 years, I expect to see the little one in my class ;)

another week, another quilt top done! usually I cram to get these donation quilts done the week of, but inspiration hit last tuesday and I knocked it out in a combined total of two days (last tuesday & today)
now it gets to hang for a month until my long arm rental date. on to the next, but only after open house tomorrow night. oy.

got my wimpy 7 hour paycheck last night, so I went to the quilt shop and spent a third of it. who needs food when you can buy fabric?

I hung out at @meissnersewingandvacuum last night for my second #makermonday and finished this fun project up! @ohsewangelina had a sew together for the #sewingdatetraveler that I just couldn't pass up. I used fabrics from the cotton & steel black and white line and of course my new "solid" color love, moda grunge fabrics. I ran home to sew the binding the rest of the way last night. now to fill it up to take on some dates. sewing dates, that is ;)

as promised, here are the final quilt tops! I suppose it was never mentioned on here as to what we were doing. @sew_l1sa and I spent last week sewing together to make these #twindogsinsweatersquilts to give our dad's for their birthday this june. we coordinated them to "match their blankies" so that's why my dad's has the yellow sweaters and hers has blue with star wars ships.
in other news, I had to block my dad's instagram account in the event that he decided to lurk. I'll be quilting mine in about a month, and can't wait to reveal them to our dad's in june!

coming home from vacation has got me like...
spending my last day of freedom cleaning. keep telling myself if I clean now, I can get back to sewing sooner. it will be lonely sewing, but still sewing.

my week in colorado.
don't act surprised that it consists of sewing, taco bell & a cat. I'll post our final quilt tops tomorrow so you can go to sleep full of anticipation.
or you can sneak over to @52quilters and see it there. I'll be making our goodbye post from there tonight. It has been a fun week for sure!
