Thanks for all of your nice comments on my quilts this week. It feels fancy to share two quilts in one week! I'll have another to share (this one) as soon as pictures are taken.

Finishing a blouse

Today, I am finishing up a new garment, from New Look pattern 0134. I picked up this purple plaid last year sometime from Hart's Fabric. All I lack is the hem and snaps (instead of buttons!). There are already plans for a second one, because the fit is nice.

Then, I'm hoping to finish up my Madrona Road challenge for the Modern Quilt Guild. I'm making a baby quilt; the top is done!

more and more

And I hope to get back to my true love, x & + blocks. I'm sure you've heard about the informal -along that Katy and Brenda put together, right?

Speaking of Brenda, Pink Castle is having a sale on all precuts and bundles, using BUNDLE25.

A pile of unfinished, and Olias

My pile of unfinished projects never seems to get smaller, although I have been sewing away!
But Olias does need a place to sleep, so no complaints here.


  1. I'm really interested to hear your thoughts on the New Look pattern. I have stayed away from them for years because i've found that they add way too much ease to their patterns. but perhaps they've gotten better over the years.

  2. can't wait to see which version of the blouse you make! and, as always, i heart olias!

  3. Count me in on the "can't wait to see the new top" list! I'll be back in Houston the week after next so hopefully I can see it in person :)

  4. I hadn't heard about the informal quilt along-thanks! Off to check it out now...

  5. Looking forward to seeing your know how interested I am in garment sewing. I can't say for certainty but if you are like me, you add more to your WIP pile in the way of new projects than you finish up. It's math. ;)


I appreciate your comments and questions! I try to respond to every comment. If you are a no-reply blogger and would like a response, please leave an email address in your comment. Thanks!
