A Week in Photos

Happy Sunday peeps! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I know I am.

The weeks seem to be flying by now that I have started school. School days are long but somehow I manage to get some sewing in here and there.

Farmer's Wife Quilt A-Long Week 7.
Calico Puzzle (Block 16) and Buzzard's Roost (Block 15)

I love lavender sachets and had this idea to make some kitty sachets using my scraps. Here they are! I love the fact that I can use scraps to make them, and that each one is unique. I embroidered their faces using DMC floss.

I have fallen for hexagons. LOL I can't stop making them! After I add some more to these I plan on using them to make a pillow. I am loving the stash busting, and the fact that I can sit on the couch and stitch these while watching a movie.

I caught a snapshot of Tex basking in the late afternoon sun.

Lola loves rolling around with her toy fox!

Alas, the weekend is almost over and I have a long school day coming up tomorrow.
What's coming up for you next week?

Oh, my! What a delight to the eye! Kitty sachets?! Amazing idea! I also love the fabric with the chickens and of course, the pic of Tex! ;)

Have a great week, Laura! ;D

Laura said...

Thanks Miki! Fortunately, sewing keeps me sane ;) LOL
School is so busy that I find that on days I don't have school, I am driven to create as much as I can!

Rosy has the same fox and loves it! It shakes so nicely.

What a super cute idea ~ turning sachets into kitten shapes! Too adorable! Glad to be catching up again with all my friends here in the blogosphere. I have enjoyed my time here admiring the cheery color combos you've been using in your sewing projects. Happy crafting!
