Froggy Tova by jenib320

I've been bit! By the clothing bug! When Ashley was de-stashing some of this Far Far Away frog print by Heather Ross last weekend, I knew I had to have it for a top! It's double gauze, so I think it will be the perfect weight for summer.  It's not super fun to sew with, but I'm happy with how it turned out! It's such a nice color of Lilac!

I used the Tova pattern by Wiksten again, pattern can be found here.

I manged to snatch up some voile on clearance for a steal from last week, and decided to make another pair of pajama pants with it! They come together so fast and easy, and oh my, these are so soft! I can't wait to wear them!

Fabric is Prince Charming by Tula Pink, pattern is from Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross.

Between sewing, I managed to pull fabrics for a new quilt this weekend. This pretty palette of pinks and purples came together very late Friday night! Sometimes I do okay half-asleep, hehe! I'll be stitching up Aneela Hoey's Bloom quilt!  You can find the pattern here!

I finally got to plant in my garden this weekend! It looks a bit bare at the moment, I still need to plant a few more things. I'm growing a few flowers and herbs and lots of veggies!
