Bad Blogger ;-(

I have been a very bad blogger.......I need to try to update at least once a week. (New Goal)
But, I have been busy making lots of things to blog about.....just can't seem to do both. LOL
My daughter designed this placemat and I made 4 of them for her. Isn't it cute? The only time consuming thing was all the quilting. But my walking foot and guide made it easy.

Then I made a little notepad holder to keep in my purse. The fabric is "Park Slope" by Erin of my favorite fabrics this year.I made a quilt top using 2 1/2 strips.....I will show it after I get it quilted.

I hope that everyone is doing well and was able to get some sewing in this weekend.
Take care,


  1. Cute placemat! Very fun. I love the Park Slope fabric. I bought a piece in another colorway. I've always resisted these contemporary fabrics, but I'm liking them more and more.

  2. Cathy...definitely NOT a fan of spiders and webs...but OH. MY. GOSH. That placemat is the cutest EVER!!! The notepad the fabric, love the idea! You ROCK!
