I'm not one to say no to free fabric, especially from my grandma who buys from quality quilt shops. I struggled for a bit with what to do with this civil war fabric I got a TON of scraps from, but now you're looking at the start to a #hazelhedgehog lap quilt! bodies & faces are cut and now it is on to the spikes. productive monday off work so far :) #quiltersofinstagram #quilter #quilting #wip #progress #civilwarfabric #rainydayoff

not gonna lie. I've been itching to sew all week, but the fact that my hedgehogs are taking 5 years to cut is cramping my mojo. I also don't have background fabric, so that's on monday's I don't have to go to work today to do list!
back in snail land, this batik is one of my favorites in the posse. something about the orange and purple blending together with the print just works for me.

spent #galentinesday with a rainbow infused unicorn & a poetic & noble land mermaid. you decide who is who. #notasnapchatfilter #friends #parksandrec #partyhardy

today was a good friend filled day. surprised sarah with a gathering complete with an amy, met the newest little peanut in town, and chased the little alaskan nugget around. #friends #birthday #surprise #surpriseparty

this week was brutal in day job land, but wrapped up nicely with a sunny saturday that was spent both learning more about free motion quilting & walking the mall with the bff.
this print is one of my favorites in the batik stash I gained, and it just fit so nicely in the shell of this snail fella.
