A Little Elephant Pouch Gift

For the holidays I really enjoyed making handmade gifts for family. I do enjoy a nice quick ‘er’ project than a full quilt every now and then! This project was a bunch of new! A new pattern, times two, altering a paper pieced pattern, sewing with cork and new quilting pattern. The pattern is by […]

Improv Flower Pillow. Done. Finally.

WAYYYYYY Back in 2017 I took a fun little class to make one Improv Flower Block with Mr. Domestic. And I made the block. Right then! I had these grand plans to hand quilt it. But it just sat there and got moved around my sewing room for literally years… Then last month, I was […]

A Couple of Cross Stitch Ornaments

OK, one more Christmas post. Just bear with me! I contemplated saving this until next Christmas, but no! I love these little guys too much! Over the last couple of years, I’ve really loved getting back into cross stitch. I love walking to the book store at lunch way too often, to see if the […]

A New Christmas Tree Skirt

I finished with a day to spare! I started this project in January. I started it but then put it away to work on other things. The thought was to start back up after the early in the year so that it would be ready in plenty of time for Christmas. Well, that didn’t happen! […]
