Quilty Wednesday

In the past week, I have quilted two quilts. It is so much fun on my new machine. There's this pedal-free mode where all I have to do is just press start and sew a straight seam. Love! Here is Meri-Sue's vintage quilt top - just needs a finished binding.

Here is my "Royal Squares," a pattern from Craftsy. Craftsy is a great place to find, patterns, inspiration and online workshops about all things crafting. There are baking, sewing, quilting, jewelry making, knitting classes, just to name a few.

Would you believe that I have another bag and a half of scraps? Off to look for inspiration from my newest favorite quilting magazine: Quilty.

Anybody have a need for fabric scraps?

Tuesday's Spin

Today's Tuesday Spin comes from Eleanor Thomas of Spin Culture. It's called "The Scream" and is a perfect blend of golden yellows, oranges, indigo and black. My goal is to 2-ply it and make a hat for Vincent. My spinning is getting more and more consistent with each batt. So exciting!

While the kids were swimming, I worked in my summer art journal. One of my summer goals is to blog more consistently, even if it is just a paragraph or two. Summer is my crazy craft period - it's where I really get to work my skills. Here are my plans, err goals.

It's sort of a summer bucket list. I plan on making a bucket list with the kids. What are your plans for summer?
