Blue and Pink fabric finds

I’m glad I didn’t decide to blog every day this month, because this week I’ve been under a rock of work, so much so my own creativity has suffered and this blog was left alone for most of the time. All I managed, except making layouts for a magazine I work for, was sending out […]

I love having friends (and sometimes one or two small friends) over in my studio. It is super fun to share from my stash, sometimes papers and sometimes other materials. This was a sewing day.

The fab fabrics I got in the Fabulous Fabric Swap became a Quilted Laptop Bag! A quilt-as-you-go-bag! And QAYG is indeed an abbreviation to remember.
