Sewing projects that are heading my way

I went from being almost done to having a plate full.
I love it!!

I still need to finish quilting a quilt that has taken me far too long. Sometimes when you have a big project, you lose interest and need a break. I am betting two years was too long a break. LOL
The quilt is off the rack and all basted; I just need to get my machine in fabulous working order first. 

I also have a baby quilt top that could use some 'sandwiching' and quilting.

I am making some baby bibs and possibly a bath time apron or two for a friend's dot and dil baby showers. She's getting girls this time around!!

I am starting another wedding dress. A strapless bubble hem dress with a flowing, fluffy, grand, bridal-y over-skirt that will come off after the pics and the ceremony. It's the new thing...convertible bridal gowns.
The mullet of the bridal on the top and a party underneath! LOL.

I also joined another apron swap. Like I don't have twenty already....but it's so much fun and I do LOVE me a good apron!!

And I have two felt weenie dog pincushions to get into the mail.

I am planning my 'Craft-it-Forward' projects too!

Last, but not least, I am joining  a jeans sew along May 2nd  It's been forever since I made pants and I've only ever made one fly front.  And jeans that fit.....OOOMMMMGGGGG.......... that sounds like a slice of heaven!

On the not sewing side of life....the boy's truck died (goodbye money) and I need to suck it up and finish the taxes and my pfaff needs to go in for a tune-up and timing adjustment so I can quilt the quilt (my little janome aqs probably could do it, but it's so small I don't want to fiddle with the fabric all that, the pfaff is all set up for free motion and junk)


What's on your creative agenda???? Do tell.................



  1. Wow! You're going to be busy for a while aren't ya!
    Chris is working late (again) this week so I am going to attempt to cut out the quilt square pieces.

  2. Very nice Ms. Gena. I didn't see any mention of anything on your agenda in July....hmmmmm. Anyhoo....can't wait to see all the fun stuff you are working on :) I'm keeping busy with 2 baby showers, 3 birthdays, 1 apron swap and who knows what else I'll get myself into :)

  3. Trouble, that's what, trouble!!
