urban couture

I bought this charm pack before Christmas. It was my first charm pack so I didn't know what to expect so I decided to cut the 5" squares into triangles and sew them that way. Well I realize that if I want to make any type of halfway decent size quilt I need to buy a few more charm packs. I really love the colors and designs in this line so I need to order a few more packs and I'll have a nice size lap quilt. This is probably measuring about 2x2 right now so not sure how many more packs to buy 3-4 I think?

well it is something

I was out yesterday and found a easter basket for Presley. I found it for $6.99...much better price than pottery barn for kids $40+ bucks for their baskets. On the other side it came with this cute easter egg embroidery. I knew I wanted to embroider her name on it and knew it would fit good on this basket. Decided to do a green instead of a matching pink. I love pink and green together. This is one of my fav fonts it is called curlz.
I love all their embroideries and they have sales all the time. I got this alphabet font for 50% off before christmas and did some pillowcases for my family. Now we are all set for the easter bunny. Maybe I should sew up a big bunny costume for greg to wear.....

I have not been doing any sewing. I have plenty to finish and hopefully in the next few days I'll be able to get a little time at the machine. I am starting to have some withdrawl from not being able to get any time to sew. I think the biggest thing right now is to get my room organized and cleaned up because it is a disaster area and when it is that messy I just can't stand being in there. I think that is my first goal....clean tomorrow and then maybe the creative juices will start flowing. I hope to have something for you guys soon
