What I've been up to...

I've kind of been MIA this week in blogland, and I'm sorry about that. But, I have been busy! I had a deadline to meet with my upcoming demo and class at the local quilt store so I've been busy busy busy starting and finishing up my display models.
I thought I would share what projects I've been up to lately, sorry for the very picture heavy post, but I've promised myself to do a better job this year taking pictures of the things I make.
Without further ado - my recent crafting projects (with commentary)

tee-shirt gifts for four of Olivia's friends. They each have their initial on them.

They were well received as all 4 kids ripped off the shirt they were wearing to put these on.
Wrapped up and ready for gift giving.

New word pillows went off in the mail this week for a (get this) professional photoshoot! Love the detail work and I've come up with some new back designs that I love.

I'm working on a shop update (Monday I hope) and these pretties will be in there!

Appliqued onsies is part of my demo at the quilt shop.

This cupcake cutie tee will also be on display at the shop. Olivia can't wait to get it back and actually get to wear it!

And last, but not least is the bag I am going to be teaching. It's from Amy Karol's book, bend-the-rules Sewing. I'm loving this bag and I'm excited to get it back and use it this summer. The chocolate linen is super yummy and I've re-fallen in-love with embroidery.

I've already gotten a custom order just from taking this into Starbuck's on my way to drop it off for display at the quilt store. Can't wait!

If you made it through this entire post, I congratulate you and thanks for indulging me!
Have a wonderful weekend friends!
