Holy #@)! I made something!

It's been a long drought, ladies, with my sewing room sitting empty and sad (except for the piles of fabric waiting, waiting, waiting and taunting me everytime I walked in there. But yesterday was the day -- in honor of our fair Erica's birthday, I busted it out.

First of all, I have to tell you how much I love my new purchase. Joann's had cutting tables on sale, and my goodness -- what a different THAT makes! It's higher than a regular table so there's no stooping, and much much bigger than any other table I own so there's no sliding pulling messing everything up shenanigans. Best of all, it folds down so I can stash it in a corner when I'm done.
Thus empowered, I pulled all my piles out and I spent the whole day skipping around from one project to another. AND I actually finished a variety of things, only a few of which I can post -- but I made a skirt (it actually fits, after no small amount of fussing)-- and a special treat for Mr. Oliver's Halloween - a festive car seat/buggy blanket. Yay for breaking the drought!


Erica, I hope you had a beautiful birthday yesterday. I missed you! Please post all the wonderful things I know you bought at Stitches!

Look at you go! The skirt is sooo pretty! Will you wear ir with boots, as in cowboy?

Love the Halloween blankie and I know a special someone who will REALLY love it!

I'm so thrilled that you sewed in my honor! And what great things you made! I love the skirt and the blanket's quite cute, too.

I had a great birthday, which I'll blog about soon. Stitches was good, but I have to say, though I'm sure that this is some sort of heresy, that I like the MD Sheep and Wool Fest better. So put the first weekend in May on your calendars, ladies!

oh my goodness that would be so fun because we can bring a mini-malootian with us then!!!

And yes -- definately boots. Perhaps cowboy. PErhaps patent leather. Depends on my mood!

Might as well get the mini-maloot used to crafty things early!

So when I click on the skirt picture, it looks like the pattern is a lot of circles??? Is that true, or is it a figment of the pixelation? I love it regardless.
