Recently I was commissioned by a good client of mine to make some pillows for a friend of hers. She explained that her friend lost her 10 year old daughter to cancer, and that her daughter’s favorite things were unicorns and rainbows. She saw my Pegasus pillow and asked if I was up for the […]

Today, Layla and I took some time out to do some responsibility-free, no strings attached sewing. I’ve been working so hard to supplement the income just so we can scrape by, that I’ve not given much time to sewing just for fun. Not that any sewing isn’t fun, because I LOVE every bit of it. But […]

    That’s beautiful! She is so talented and has a great eye for arranging colors just like mama. Such special memories you’re making with her! Can’t wait to sew with my girls when they get old enough!ReplyCancel

  • My girl is the same way about soft things. I can highly recommend a minky or flannel backing for a happy customer!ReplyCancel

  • Donna Lee

    Wonderful! You both should be proud! That is a lot of sewing for both of you and I can imagine took patience on both your parts. She will remember this forever, even when the quilt has been loved to pieces.ReplyCancel

  • What a great way to spend some time together. It is a beautiful quilt and I am sure she will cherish it for a long time along with the memories of making it.ReplyCancel

    Meredith,
    The First thing I opened this morning, while the house is still quiet, was a Newsletter from Hawthorne Thread. They are one of my all time Favorites and have never been disappointed with anything I have found or purchased. I was absolutely the happiest person around! There they were, your “Shifting Beauties”! I have been trying to try some patterns that I have never tried before, and what better time than now! I have some very special people in my Family, Actually…lol…all of them, that I want to have something special! I get so busy making gifts for other’s or gifts that family member’s want for others, that they have received the short end. They, of all people deserve my best, full of Love and Hope for a wonderful, well, everything! Life doesn’t always comply with such wishes, and if I’m not there in person to give Hugs, they should have a part of me to Wrap Them in a Hug! I can’t wait to get started. I’m warming up my stiff fingers and will be ready to go! Thank you for bringing something a bit fresh and different, for me and those I deeply love!ReplyCancel

    • Your comment is such an encouragement. Yes! Family are the most important, but it’s easy to deprioritize those who we feel we “have time” time to make for. I think you’ll love this pattern, and it’s a quick sew too! :) ReplyCancel

Did anyone wonder what happened to me? I have spent every spare moment working on a commissioned queen size quilt for one of my most favorite clients! She had a vision of a bold, Anthro-esque quilt. We went back and forth on the fabrics and decided on our palette. She has excellent taste! The quilt […]
