Throwback Thursday: Christmas Jaimesyn plus another Whistler

Howdy howdy!

Dang, I’ve been on a posting spree lately.  Don’t worry, I’ll lose my gumption soon enough again.  Ha!  The call of the sewing is always louder than the call of the blogging.  But I do love being able to look back and see all of the things I’ve made.

Which brings us to today’s Throwback Thursday, which is only throwing back about four months, but since these garments aren’t quite seasonal any longer:  here are Simple Life Pattern Co’s Baby Jaimesyn and another Love Notions Whistler.

Tales From Christmas Past: Oh Deer Me

Christmas is lonnnnng gone, but I’ve got a to-be-blogged backlog of 2018 makes a mile long.  I may lose steam on showing you all of them (but I’m hoping to share at least one a month on Throwback Thursday!), but I couldn’t not blog the holiday clothes I made for us last year…they’re just too cute.

End of Year Plans!

It’s been eons since I’ve done a planning post, and I have so many ideas rolling around in my head that I thought it was high time for another!

We have lots of fun stuff coming up as the year comes to an end, so I have quite the sewing schedule planned.  I’ll have a chance of getting a good portion of it done if I actually sew after the kids go to bed instead of falling asleep on the couch…we’ll see what I finish!  Here they are in order of priority:

UFO Quilt Update #2

Lord almighty, it’s been quite the couple of weeks.  I’m really glad I went hard and heavy working on the Christmas quilt earlier this month, because without my nose to the grindstone there would have been no hope of finishing by the UFO contest’s February 4th deadline.

Here’s what it looked like last time I updated.

And here’s the backing I chose!  I loved the poinsettia option, but it was just too pricey for my cheap ass.

So, what’s happened with the quilt, and life, in the last two weeks?  If you have a weak stomach, proceed with caution.  You have been warned.
