Flickr Winner!

Hey there all, I’m sorry about the delay in announcing the winner of the November Flickr prize! It’s been quite a crazy week here and things got a bit away from me. We’re here now, so let’s draw that prize!

 

Tree Trimming

 

The November winner is Amber Lowery!

Amber wins a a free PDF copy of Tree Trimming for sharing photos with the Sewhooked Flickr Group

This is an especially fun one for me because in addition to making projects from many of my patterns just for fun, Amber was also my pattern tester on Paper Piecing Vintage! Congratulations and thank you for not only making oodles of goodies from my patterns, but sharing your phots. 😀

 

Be sure to keep sharing those photos for a chance to win future prizes! All winners chosen using Random.org.

Rose!
For those of you anxiously awaiting the name of our newest furry family member, I’d like to introduce Rose! Her name is inspired by four of our family’s favorite fandoms: The Lord of the Rings (Samwise’s wife, Rose Cotton), Harry Potter (Rose Weasley), Doctor Who (Rose Tyler), and Homestuck (Rose Lalonde). We’ve pretty much covered all bases for all two-legged family members! Also, and most importantly, she just looks like a Rose. 🙂
See you tomorrow with Paper Piecing Vintage: April!

2013 Finishes and other Fabulous Things

Vacation 2013

After all the UFO shenanigans going on around here, I really wanted to share some of the 2013 things that happened completely apart from my ever-growing to do list.

It was a big year filled with lots of projects, oodles of new patterns, vacation, graduation, college and the loss of a special furry loved one.

Here are a few photos to share some of my 2013 with you!

Doctor Who Quilt 2013

In 2013, I organized and designed for The Doctor Who Quilt Along on Fandom in Stitches.

This is the Doctor Who quilt I made for my daughter to take to college. This project was a balm to my aching mommy heart.

Tackett, 1997 - 2013

Last, but not least, a bittersweet end. We said goodbye to Tackett, the TTMT kitty, in June.  He was my best furry friend and I miss him dearly.

Some Friday Things.

Bottle Organ

It’s awfully hard to share crafty goodness this time of year.

Among my usual drafting and scheming for future projects, I’ve been working on some gifts for people in my life. Obviously, I can’t show you that, so I thought a quick tour through some of my Instragram photos might be fun!

The Coke bottles you see above are part of a bottle organ created by my son and and his friends. Among other things, they played the Tetris theme song. Who says kids are only interested in video games? 😉

No idea what I’m talking about? Check out The Bottle Boys on YouTube. You’ll be entertained, I promise!

Scrappy binding cut for my Harry Potter alphabet quilt!

During the course of this past week, I worked on the binding for my Harry Potter alphabet quilt. I started with scrappy binding after a discussion with my trusty bee friends. Sadly, the awesome swirly purple didn’t make it in, but the rest of the lovely fabrics did!Binding in progress! Getting there. #binding

I worked on the quilt a little each night this week while hanging out with my husband and son, or as I call them around here, “my boys.”

Done! #binding

Here it is, binding all done! I finished up last night while I caught up on Big Bang Theory.

Look for photos of the quilt itself when it stops raining or on Talk To Me Tuesday…whichever comes first!

Wait, what’s that in the background? Yep, the bottle organ is still on my kitchen table!

Time to repair the buttons on my favorite coat. #mending Much better! #mending

Also this week, I mended the buttons on my favorite coat. This is a lovely double breasted jacket I found in a consignment shop years ago. The buttons were just looking sad, so I searched my thread for the perfect color and, wallah, good as new!
