Work in Progress

Ok, so my sewing project this weekend has taken me longer than expected. It has been so much fun though. I just love, love, love Amy Butler fabrics. Here are some pictures of my work in progress.


Flowers of Inspiration!!

I picked up some colorful flowers for inspiration! I can't wait until spring comes, especially since we just got hit with a huge snow storm last week.

Sewing Project - Oven Mitts!

It's the weekend again! Yay - that means more time for artsy projects. This weekend I'm working on a project using my favorite designer fabrics, Amy Butler Designs!

Today was assembly day. I did all the washing, ironing and cutting for the oven mitt project in Amy Butlers book InStiches. Tomorrow I will finally get to sew!

I went to Fabric Place to get batting and grommets, and ended up with some additional fabrics from the bargain bin! Gotta love the piles of fabric options. So hard to resist!! These were particularly nice. Fabric Place has such a great selection.

What are you doing Sherman!!

New Glass Art Installation!!

A special package arrived for me in the mail today! It was the highly anticipated glass wall sculptures that I commissioned. I discovered this amazing artist a few months back named Darren Goodman. His artistic glass creations are stunning! I immediately fell in love with the vibrant colors and fun designs.

Here are a few pictures of the wall sculptures installed in our living room. We're totally excited!! Now, we just have to keep the cats away!


Did I mention, I'm totally excited!!!
