New Book

My husband heard about this book and knew that I wanted it. I couldn't find it anywhere but the other night he came home and had a copy for me!

I'm excited to get started with my own pattern designing. I think the first thing I need to do is make myself a dress form....

Love Birds

So, I recently found some wedding cake toppers online at Etsy and thought they were darling, but then I went to my friend Beth's wedding and she had these on her cake.

A friend of the bride and groom made these for them, she did a fantastic job! I'm so jealous that I didn't think of this for my wedding. If you're looking for cute cake toppers check out the following sellers on Etsy....SO CUTE!!

Bridal Gifts

Summer is the time for weddings. It's a great opportunity to try new things and make cute stuff for the bride-to-be. I find that I love my Denise Schmidt Quilt Book more and more. So far I've made a quilt, oven mitt and slipper from it. In preparation for my friend Beth's bridal shower I made another oven mitt and the apron.  The patterns were easy and quick. The fabric was from a fat quarter pack of Hello Betty by Moda.  I love, love, love this fabric! I've used it on so many projects. I wanted to get more yardage just to add to my stash but by the time I discovered that I loved it it was already gone.

Here are a few pictures of my bridal shower gift...
