It's been a busy week! But, thankfully I was able to get caught up on my bee blocks. It always feels good to be caught up! Jen asked for drunk love blocks for the Twice Around the Block Bee. I also finished up my block for the Beebolt charity quilt from The Sewing Summit! :)

Have you guys heard about Stockings for Kids? It's a charity drive being run by Lyanna of Purple Panda Quilts. This is a little sneak peek of the tutorial I'm sharing there on Tuesday! :)

I've been baaad. Fabric candy has been arriving. Snatched up some Prince Charming from my friend Amy's new online shop, The Fabricologist, Outfoxed from Sew Fresh Fabrics, and a stack of stripes and other lovelies from my LQS. Oooops! :)

I got lucky with vintage Pyrex this week! Found these three bowls all in dismal condition, but felt the need to save them. They all cleaned up pretty well. I already have a turquoise set, but it's my favorite so, why not? Hehe.

  1. Good week! The bottom of that left stack looks like sewing machines on white...Metro Market? Show us more! :)

  2. I love that vintage fabric you found! It's amazing!

  3. That cowl looks so dang soft!! Makes me want to learn the skill!

  4. I love how you said "oops" like it's an accident. Sounds like me. I must get that outfoxed. I love the new pearl bracelet colors.

  5. Yes, ooops, I know how quickly these kind of things can happen! :-) I think that hedgehog print is super cute, I'm looking forward to seeing what you'll make! Also, love the vintage fabric and Pyrex!

  6. Love outfoxed, gotta get me some of that! Great going with the cowl too... stitches look nice and even. Im on rav too...laurajane89.

  7. What kind of yarn is that? It has such a pretty sheen to it! Well, you really started something last night with your photos! I wonder if everyone ended up ordering some of those Wee Woodland stripes. :)

  8. So, I showed your sweet George to my husband, and we are in semi-serious talks about getting a rabbit! Has your rabbit ever been around cats? From reading online, it looks like they can get along and become good friends. :)

  9. Ugh!!! Those quilt blocks look disgustingly perfect. I'm convinced you are a robot. :-)

    Yup scored some great Pyrex.

  10. What fun, Jeni! The bee blocks look gorgeous and the knitting looks like it's coming along well. The new fabrics look just beautiful... wish I lived in your sewing room! ;)

  11. Your cowl is coming along nicely; such lovely yarn (I want to go back to Blazing Needles)! That vintage fabric will make the most amazing skirt or dress :)

  12. Congratulations on being a guest tutor!

    Great fabric and thrift finds - you've had a good week it seems!

  13. The cowl is looking good so far! And I'll be sure to track you down on ravelry! I adore that arrow fabric you found. So fun!
