I made a bib

Here it is:

Amazing, am I right?  It's a starter bib.  Flannel front, terry cloth back, simple top stitching around the edge.  Fun. Simple. Cute. Pulled out my old sewing machine to try zig zag stitching, only to find it minus one pressed foot. Drag. to the rescue. A new one will be shipped to me in - wait for it - 10-22 days. Awesome.

Also, sliding:

Itty Bitty Elephants


Sorry for that outburst.  But they are.  And they are my new pattern on Pieces of Candy Crafts.  Woo.

Oh and I finished a quilt for a Bayside Teammate.  Shower tomorrow.  Very excited.  Need daylight and my taller roommate to hold it up so I can take a final photo.

The Woman who Mistook Her Friday Night for a Hat

So this happened tonight.  In a few weeks I will be participating in the Jingle All the Way 8k. A group of us have decided to dress as characters from A Charlie Brown Christmas. I chose Linus because I have the perfect blue blanket. The other key to his costume is the green pompom hat. I couldn't find a suitable one for purchase, so found this pattern online. It knitted up super quickly and minus the pompom was completed in under two hours. However, i do wish I'd had the patience to actually test my gauge because it's a tad on the tight side. But still cute as hell.

My Shoulder Hurts

Free motion quilting is tough on the muscles. But it's done. Another stippling success. Each time I do it I become a little bit more in control I what I want the thing to actually do. It's like practice makes... something something. 

In other news, Halloween happened. 

And we went to the farm.
