Back to Sewing...

Saturdays seem to be set aside for sewing lately. In the morning I made this cute little number from Puking Pastilles' superhero cape tutorial. Super easy! I'm trying to practice a new sewing skill with each project. This one included machine applique, turning, top stitching and sewing on a velcro closure. I've kinda done some of those things before, but not for anything that needed to look good. Like a gift. ; ) I hope Super Asher likes it!

Mr. Bear came back to model a bit:

I spent the afternoon measuring, cutting, and sewing fusible interfacing to some appliques for my next quilt. I kinda hope to get all the appliques ready and sewn on next Saturday, and since I'm going whole-cloth with this one, I'll be ready to start hand quilting on the next Saturday. I just can't bear to do an entire quilt on my dinky machine. I just can't! Hopefully, I'll be finished around Thanksgiving and I can get started on the next two - I'm insane, I know it. The kicker is that my cousin, Marci, just found out she's having TWINS so the baby quilting insanity has only begun.

We had October/November birthdays at Nanna's house and she had the table set with her new table runner and napkins. Love it! (but I'm biased....)
Reagan can always find a comfy place to sleep around here! He found my quilt bag in my makeshift sewing room in my parents' study. Seems to be his new favorite spot.
