The Daily Improv

I’ve said it other years, but this is my year of cleaning out my WIPS! I’m doing a good job of it, now to get them photographed and blogged about! This is my first quilt I finished this year! It’s not one of my oldest WIPs, but it was sitting there just waiting! All the […]

Flamingo Pouch

My mom recently had a flamingo themed birthday party, so when I saw the flamingo pattern by Quiet Play, I knew I had to make her something using the flamingo pattern! And I’m totally in love with these 3D Flamingos! ha! I also used them on her party invites. The pattern is for a 12″ […]

Improv Mini Quilts for Curated Quilts Issue 5

I used to post 2 to 3 times a week, every week… Life has gotten in the way of that. Now with my haphazardly posting routine, I just realized I never posted my mini quilts for the Improv Issue of Curated Quilts!   Yes, Issue 5 was released by in 2018… But I still love […]

Koala Cross Stitch Storage Bin

I actually made a cross stitch project and turned it into something all in less than a year! Maybe even less than a month start to finish! Remember back when we were worried about the fires in Australia? It seems like a lifetime ago with everything going on in the world these days. Way back […]

Quilted Music Pouch

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 […]

We Made Masks

Honestly, I didn’t want to, but we did. Here’s my quick soap box… I don’t feel like in a country like ours there should be a shortage of any health care PPE. Not in this day and age. Hospitals should not have to worry about getting PPE to protect our healthcare workers. We live in […]

Winter Friend Pillows

I’m enjoying making other people’s projects these days! Like these Winter Friend Pillows! I really love these little throw pillows. They were intended to be Christmas presents, but they were a little late. The green ones are staying at our house while the red ones found a new home. I’m calling them winter pillows, not […]
