Last night I needed a relaxing project, something that I didn't have to work on. After seeing Megan's valentine's mini quilt and Ali's progress on a valentine's day project, I was itching to make something festive, but nothing too complicated. I pulled out my red and pink scraps and just started playing. Piecing, trimming, cutting and piecing back together. I had a lot of fun digging through my scraps and making a dent in my white and off white solid scraps to finish it off. It was nice to just let go and sew. And, now I have a cute valentine-y mini to hang up! :)
Tova pattern last night! I am very excited to be using this Habitat dot by Jay McCarroll for this one. I had originally purchased it for a skirt, but since I almost never wear them, I decided it would be better used for a top! I hope to make some more progress on it tonight! To see my first Tova top, and quick review of the pattern, see here.

Fat Quarter Shop last week!
(Fabrics are Girl's World Vibe by Jennifer Paganelli, Lush by Patty Young, Good Fortune by Kate Spain, Weekend Clubhouse by Michael Miller, and It's a Girl thing by Michael Miller)
Deedee's scrappy garland last summer! I used the finished side hems and strips that get trimmed off from vintage sheets when I'm cutting fat quarters and simply knotted them directly to the existing curtain rods!
the shop is absoutely bursting with vintage-y goodness! These are just a few of my favorite patterns currently in stock!
I am yet again, behind on answering emails! I am hoping to get organized and back on track for February so I can get back to replying to your comments!
