a dozen burp cloths for baby



i finished up a dozen burp cloths for my granbaby

i used my leftover bits of  flannel

i used flannel on both sides for a few and then i decided to try a few w terry towel on the back

terry towel is my favorite..i think they will be more absorbent... i just i bought a 6 pack of bar mop cloths at ross for 2.99 ... inexpensive and i  love the  finish with the soft colors xo


i have been using this pattern for a few years now...so fun to make a dozen for my first granbaby xo

soon to be a gramma sewing xo

i finished up this simple baby quilt in march at my quilt retreat...it was originally started as a graduation quilt but put aside cuz it was too baby....

i machine quilted it yesterday with bellybop

and i used my special where the wild things are flannel for the back...i bought 10 yards on a sale table a few years ago... it was actually nick who spotted it ~  i remember it well cuz that is the one and ONLY  time my husband has ever "found" fabric 

i love how simple it is and i love that simple is definitely a favorite



i made a matching cover for the cradle mattress with double batting

the cradle is a gift from my friend kay ...her father made it for her children forty years ago...

sam and lani  took the cradle home last night ... soon there will be a sweet baby boy rocking in this beautiful cradle xo

washington park


camped at washington park in annacortes on the weekend xo

the spring  wild flowers are here
we walked up to the south bluff preservation ~ my favorite view EVER and we saw seven eagles soaring above the channel

i love that when a tree falls in a park forest it just gets moved aside and continues with nature xo
gifts from the sea ~ glass is always my special find while beach combing

my friend sharon [thank you xo] recommended the majestic inn in annacortes for their 5th floor rooftop restaurant with a view of the san juans ~ it was a chilly beer but they had blankets xo

and there are always a few of these babies around

and the sunsets were great xo
  happy monday ~ back to sewing for granbaby and customer quilting  xo pam

baby baby and then some



finished my first granbaby quilt ....looking so forward to having the first grandchild  in our family next month  xo

love the vintage feel of thirties fabric with muslin...machine quilted with my favorite loop the loop by patricia ritter

i pieced a soft flannel back and machine stitched the binding hoping it will survive through lots of love and many washes

and i am having fun with this improv house block for a friend

and i finished up a custom scrappy log cabin for a surprise wedding gift...


and my re-purposed cutting table is done...nick added adjustable  workshop legs from home depot [forty dollars] onto a table top we had already ~ along with wheels and a bottom shelf ...so thankful for my handy guy ~ i am a HAPPY girl ~ my new sewing room has made sewing so much easier...amazing what a little more space can do.

a second sewing room xo

there has been some rearranging in my crowded work room...i now have this quiet space along with my longarm and it feels so good

i moved all my personal sewing to the spare room just down the hall...thanks to nick i now have a 7' x 8' design wall and soon i will have a cutting table , a BIG ironing board and better lighting...i  love having a separate room for  selfish sewing

moving the STASH was the most work...xo


happy sunday xo pam
