I made these buckets for my pal Amy for Christmas. I have no idea what the pattern is. Film in the Fridge maybe. I got to use some of my coveted typewriter fabric.
They turned out pretty cute and someday would like to make myself some.
For my friend and boss I made a Russian Nesting Doll. Here is my pile of inspirational bits.
And here she is with her babies, unstuffed.
The finished doll.
I got a bunch of signed by the author books while in Market and am giving a book a day away on "my" other blog. I blog about 3-4 days a week over there and share my work related sewing.
Is is really the end of May? School is out in one week. Another summer. Last year was a write off.
Nuala broke her leg this time last year and was in a wheelchair. Mia broke her arm and I just worked, kept my head down, and forged ahead. I happily kissed 2012 goodbye.
Thankfully 2013 has started off pretty good. I am in love, Mia made High School cheerleading tryouts (I have a high schooler!!), my friends/coworkers just got back from Quilt Market in Portland, and I am getting sprinklers in my yard (no more hauling hoses around my enormous yard!! Life changing). I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease but that still isn't enough to make this year bad.
I'm riding the happy train as long as I can.
