Just in time for the Superbowl!

When our super snuggly and soft flannel basics arrived, I knew I wanted to create something with them, but was a little hesitant on doing a larger project as I have never worked with flannel before. I wanted a simpler project that would give me the experience that I needed, but also a finished product. The perfect solution for this was the Rookie Quarterback Baby Quilt by the Robinson Pattern Company. While I'm not a huge football fan, I know plenty of people who are so this will make a great gift when the time comes. Or, I'll just hold on to it for the next time the Buffalo Bills make it to the Superbowl (ha!). I might be holding on to it for a while if that's the case...

This past weekend I decided to make a cute Pumpkin Spice Table Topper as a holiday project. I spent a rainy weekend hand sewing while watching a British miniseries on my computer. Heaven! I haven’t done much embroidery in recent years so it was a fun to brush up on my backstitch.

Teddy & Frosty Gift Tags

I’m a sucker for tags…all sorts of tags.  So when I saw the Teddy and Frosty Gift Tags Pattern Download by Sipiweske Quilt Designs I fell in love.  They are incredibly adorable and several people in the office have been eyeing them, so I have to be on guard to make sure they don’t mysteriously disappear!

Fly With Me Baby Quilt Kit

My stash of kid’s quilts expanded once again when I saw Kristin’s fun design and had to sew it up.  I love how the lightning bolts from our adorable Soaked collection frame the quilt, adding some drama to the scene, while the airplanes are safely circling around through the rain clouds.
