Now... I love prints. I rarely work in solids, unless for an accent or border or lining or something like that. Well, I changed my mind yesterday.

I worked in solids! Crazy! And I love it.

And I decided to let my machine decide where the quilting lines go. I'm okay with that.

But I did work in some prints...for the lining. Sis Boom, you helped me out!

Doing one in red, pink, and gray right now. Let's see.

At the produce market today...found Kumato...a type of tomato I guess from Europe and Canada. Gang, It is good. And beautiful. Great tomato flavor. Very meaty, holds up well. I am in love!

In a yummy tomato salad right now. Can't wait to top the Baguette with them!

Sewing Frenzy...

A couple of new bags I just wrapped up tonight! My friend Grayson and I were discussing our love of gray and yellow today so I got inspired. Rushed to the fabric store and found some gray/black/yellows I liked. Quilted it in gray. Loves the results.

Front. This is the best button I own. Totally vintage, totally hot. It pained me to sew it on this bag. Just pained me. Oh, I love it.


Before quilting/bagging.

I just finished this green one too. I love it so much. Vintage button. fun scraps of fabrics.

Back. The lady fabric I got a couple of years ago in Oklahoma City. Kinda Mad Men-esque huh?


Also, my friend John at Quilt Dad is celebrating a Blogiversary!!! He is having a great big giant giveaway and I offered one of my bags to giveaway. Get over there and enter to win!

Hey Gang,
Listen...what is wrong with me? I've let time get away from me with blogging. I've said it do you blog and work and live and all that stuff? I'm terrible at it. But I'll give you a rundown on what's been going on...

1. I played a bear...Papa Bear to be clear. It was great fun! Super fun! And I love my Mrs. Garrett wig! Jazz Hands!

I also costumed a show for Playfest! at Orlando Shakes. It was fun too. No pics yet, but maybe soon.

And I've been sewing a lot lately. And my friend John at QuiltDad is celebrating his 2 year blogiversary and I told him I wanted to help with his giveaway. Look at what I made for him!

First pic after sewing my scraps together. All pinks and greens and yellows. I really like them.

Finished bag. All quilted and delish. With a vintage button.

The bag in back. I love it! Stay tuned to find out how you can win it!
love love
