A sewing frenzy!

Today I woke up and just wanted to sew. Awesomeness! I have been so out of it with sewing since the move and my stuff not being organzied but I got my mojo back today and sewed like crazy. First I made a pillow to go in my room to match the quilt I am making.

My Square Pillow

I have my blocks for the quilt on my design wall (aka living room wall) for now. I am just so in love right now it is crazy! These colors are sooooo me.

I did straight line quilting on this one down and across and it is perfect.

Then after that was done I finally gave in to Gwen. She has been begging me like crazy to make a blanket for Pooh. I was hoping she would forget soon since I joined in the Doll Quilt Swap 10 and was hoping for a quilt for her but oh well. I can always use it on my wall in my sewing room and also I bet Gwen will use a billion blankets if she had them.

Gwen picked out all the fabrics and told me that she wanted all colors and it to be a rainbow. We got the top done and went to baste it but found out I am all out of batting pieces that are big enough. Hopefully tomorrow we can go to JoAnn's and buy some because apparently Pooh is FREEZING! So we must hurry :) Oh to be a (almost) 4 year old. On that note I found this super cute sewing machine that I am going to buy her for her Birthday. I just wish it came in blue since that is her favorite color, but oh well. What do you think? Has anyone bought this? How is it?

Super cute machine! I know Monica has a HK machine, I think hers is turquoise. Not sure if it's the same make or model though.
I've just discovered your blog, I like your style!

Ooh, let us know how that machine works out. My daughter would LOVE one.

Hi, linked to your site through my sis who's a reader. :)

To the question though, for a $20 machine, you get what you pay for. I bought this one

and it rocks, big time. My 8yr old is learning how to sew on it, and I feel confident that it will be hers until my 2 year old is big enough to use it.

Oh we bought this sewing machine or one just like it at Joannes...the problem is , it doesn't really sew at all! So if you want her to just kinda pretend to sew and go through the motions than good. But I got it for my son who wanted his own sewing machine that he could actually sew we got him this and just wanted to give you a heads up! :D

I love that pillow - gorgeous colours. You should enter it into the Pillow Parties at Stitched in Colour and SMS.

Great pillow, Darci! A beautiful mix of greens and aqua. Let us know what you decide for your daughter's machine...maybe I should get one for my daughter too.

oh i did the same thing for ruby (my 4 yr old) for christmas ... i got her a machine similar to that (the one from joanns) and it didn't work at all. we ended up taking it back and ruby is happy to wait a bit longer for her OWN machine. til then, she helps in other ways (see my post a few days ago haha).
