fussy xmas

I completely forgot to share my make for the August birthday girl Cinda. She mentioned she would like some Christmas pillows etc. I of course, went with a Christmas fussy square pillow. I think it turned out pretty cute! Unfortunately, I only have the picture that Cinda took on Instagram. I’ve been having all kinds of technical difficulties lately. Sigh.

Busy bee over here :) I’ve been cleaning out my sewing room a bit. Our house just feels too full of stuff lately. We’re having a neighborhood garage sale next month and I can’t wait to unload some crap. haha So, I decided to get rid of some sewing “stuff” that has been sitting around too long. I usually do this via Instagram and the #thegreatfabricdestash.  Anyway, all this is to say I’m clearing off a lot from my Future project list. Yay! Exciting stuff, huh? :)

I sewed up a grouchy kitty for my #kittyminiswap partner. I hope she likes it! I think he will become a pillow.

I’ve been chugging along with my teeny tiny hexies. Can you spot the world’s tiniest thong?

I’ve combed my stash for fun Halloween fabrics for the round 10 Halloween theme fussy square swap. I may or may not have just ordered some more cute Halloween prints on IG. It’s a problem.

And, just for the sake of finishing something. I made this cute drawstring bag using In color order’s tutorial. I will make more of these!

I finished up my Stash Bee Aug block. What a fun block to make. Don’t  your bookshelves end up with random toys stuck on them too?

I also finished piecing this plus quilt. I’ve got quite a few quilt tops waiting on backs and the rest of the treatment. Hopefully I’ll have some finishes to share once I get Fancy back from the spa.
