But What Have You Done Lately?

I am terrible at this blogging thing. Lately I have not been sewing very much, too busy. Last weekend I went to the Esty Rain event in Seattle at the Intiman Theatre and now I'm all inspired for Christmas.

My current project is an Advent Calendar Quilt. The pattern is from SewMamaSew, I saw it last year and just never got around to the project.  I picked up a fat quarter pack of Robert Kaufman's Sparkle All the Way and Groove Holiday collection and I knew it would be perfect for this project.

It's still a work in progress, but I think it's going to be fantastic.

Each square is a actually a little pocket where you can store a little treat or something special!

This is the first time I've done any machine embroidery, kind of a challenge but I'm beginning to figure it out.
