and one of you is a winner too.
allison... lucky number 11... is the winner of the weepies, be my thrill.
i hope you love it as much as i do!!
(i love giving away little prizes... so much fun.
email me at email@example.com and give me your address!!)
now on to crafting. (or maybe i should say sewing?)
i'm not sure what has gotten into me.
but i'm going a little crazy with the desire to make things.
here is my list so far:
1. a quilt for elliot's bed.
inspired by this fabric that i just found at bolt on alberta in portland:
wish i could get some of this too:
this site has given me TONS of inspiration to make the quilt... fresh lemon quilts.
she has so many to see and love.
specifically, i love this one:
something simple and modern and super fun.
maybe, just maybe, i might actually pull this thing off.
though, i'll be honest.
it does overwhelm me a little.
and i did have a hard time going to sleep last night because i was afraid of cutting fabric in a way that i'd regret. (i know that is a really lame thing to be restless over.)
my friend keri just came to portland and i bought all the other fabrics i'd need. (thanks!)
now i just need the confidence to go for it!
2. a wreath for my front door.
and maybe another for inside somewhere.
can someone explain why wreaths are so awesome?
i mean, i really love what i see, but wonder why i do.
it's a circle.
with stuff glued or wrapped or stuck on it. why do they look so cute?! and welcoming?
here are the wreaths i'm wanting to make:
first from delia creates:
another from pretty poppy:
i have no idea what color to do this in... i have a black front door... with some funky green accents on my porch. i think red would be beautiful for christmas. but for fall... hmmmm.
and just when i was getting comfortable with a little rosie wreath, i see this from celebrate yellow made:
a wreath made with acorns:
all things thrifty:
the funny thing is that i got on this wreath kick because of another sewing project i'd like to try.
3. my friend liz has made this for her daughter.
and i asked her for the directions. again from celebrate yellow made:
a shirt dress tutorial.
