Taking it Easy

I've been working, but not at the rapid pace that I usually go with. And I haven't been very good at all about posting pics of my work. Here's a little snippit of something I've been working on for Kiki: Truth is, I need to take it easy. That's what summer is for anyway, right? I think it's time to loosen up my work ethic and take a cue from the kids (that is, naptime is essential):

No More Stitch in the Ditch

Since I started quilting, I've been a bit intimidated by free-motion quilting. But I decided to give it a shot today and it turned out great! This is a pot holder, but hopefully I can work myself up to something a bit bigger: All I did was lower my feed dogs and strap on a special quilting foot. I'll probably buy a stencil to use next time since I overlapped a couple of times. This is awesome!

I've been a bit busy, so I had to take a small break from blogging, but I haven't breaked from sewing, that's sure! Between a new car, selling my old car, picking up hours at work, and my sewing projects (can't share yet, they are a surprise for someone) I haven't had as much time to sit at the computer.
First, I snapped a couple of pics of Kiki in her new headwear: Goofy face:
And here's a little look at something I made this week. My friend Nicolette made Finn a crayon roll last year and I've always thought it was the cutest thing. So, I made one up for a birthday party last weekend. I need to put this in my store:

Fourth of July Leftovers

Well, I had the intention of making a lot of Fourth of July yo-yo's to decorate a front door wreath. However, it is now July 3rd and I have yet to put it together. I won't completely rule it out, but for now my craft table looks like this: I didn't want my work to be completely wasted, so I put a couple together to make a hair clip:
And I picked up a headband and made another yo-yo hair piece:

This were originally for Kiki, but I'm starting to think they work well for me too! I should get started on some for Halloween and put them in my store!

Yikes! I've been on a bit of a blogging whirlwind lately, and it seems I've fallen behind this week. But with good reason! We've been a bit busy.
We celebrated Father's Day:
Then we took a short vacation to visit family. And I forgot my camera! So frustrating.
I have still been sewing. Here's the tote bag I made for my mother:

And a quilted birthday card (LOVE these!):

And we spent a little time celebrating my mom's birthday:

Last but not least, we bought a minivan!
I'm not sure how much I'll get done this weekend since it's a holiday, but I am working on a project for the Fourth (we'll see if I get it done or not). Hopefully I'll be back to my regular blogging schedule soon!
