Happy Half Price Chooolate Day! & some ramblings.

No matter what you celebrate, today is traditionally HALF PRICE Easter chocolate day! This year, of course, it’s a tad different. Yep, still quarantining. Which is good. NOT complaining. Doing our part to flatten the curve. Ontario just announced another full 21 days, so that brings us to…mid-May. I think the biggest realization (and biggest adjustment to make, for me) was how much time and money I would just waste ‘running out’ to just get ‘one thing’ and then be out at the shops for, oh, you know. Like hours.…

Finish it Up Friday!

Friday again! What’s on your FIF list?  My quilt below is a vintage-thrifted sheet & remnants of a costume I wore…it was (shamefully) in my UFO pile since….2014. Eep. Pre finish The soft browns and pinks of the sheet made me happy…even though it’s faded in some spots I didn’t care.The mixed solid pink blocks are from some of my old costumes from the 2000’s which I couldn’t just…scrap. I finally squared it off, fixed the backing & quilted it this past week. The lighting is a bit bright but…

Well, here we are.

Welp. There goes March. And what a March it was. It feels like it was 8000 days long (Thanks, Ken for that joke it’s awesome). Still in quarantine mode and staying at home. Venturing out once a week for groceries; and afternoon walks. Making sure to social distance, of course. In other good news, my bday is next month. Yes! I’ll be 27. (ahem). But what with the quarantining and it falling on Good Friday, I can’t imagine we’ll be doing much to celebrate. Here’s a roundup of some projects…

Are people still reading blogs?

Blogs. Are they still a thing? Or is it all ‘on the ‘gram’ now? I mean, I still have my fav people I follow & read; but a lot of them, like myself; have kinda gone awol from time to time and only post pics on Instagram. I get it. Social media is WORK. And not in the fun kind of werk. Like actual WORK.  By the time I’ve come up with content, added & edited pics, tried to schedule a few posts in advance, and then co-ordinate to pop…

RUFFLE BUSTLES and a Confessional.

I feel like you should say “ruffle bustle” with a mouthful of Peeps….is that just me?!?  LOL New  “Chubby Bunny” challenge for us crafters…. I love bustles and ruffles and all fun things like that.  Sadly, when you wear them in your day to day, you *might* get some odd looks.  However….if you’re feelin’ a little fancy, and wanna put some sashay into your day…tie one of THESE babies on…. ba-BOOM. Detailing the ruffles and lace and sequins! Ruffle bustles have been on my maker’s list for awhile now. But…

Beware the….Cats (!?!?) of March!

LOL So while Spring might be coming to a lot of places, it’s still blustery and coooooold here in my part of Ontario. So, to cheer us up, here are my cats! Because, that’s why the interwebs were created! CATS! Zazi….she’s hiding. Muffin does NOT share her toys. Zazi plays hard to get. And yes, that is an ear-tip. She was one of our former feral cats; you can read about her HERE. I noticed it looks like she’s laying in a big ol’ butt crack LOLOL This is Georgia;…

“Sheroes” Quilt!

  Wonderwoman was my childhood hero. She (and some of her pals from the Justice League) used to be my invisible friends too.  But um, I’m over that now.  Ahem. For the next generation. It was pretty spectacular. I first found this amazing fabric a few years ago; but it languished until I found the ‘right’ idea for it. I’m sure you do that too; that ‘special’ fabric you find and then it sits…sometimes for years….. All the Girls are here. Batgirl, Supergirl, AND Wonderwoman. As always, I use an…

CHANGES!

Cha-cha-chaaanges….♪♫♪….LOL Now I’ve got you humming some David Bowie…….  Here are some BEFORE photos:: My Inspo board. I hung these giant corkboards myself. Didn’t go so well; they aren’t too stable. They’ll be coming down. Super excited. Just before Christmas, we (finally) replaced the old bunk beds in my sewing room with a futon. I know, I know. But we needed something that was compact, that had storage underneath and could still function when we have guests. (And it was on sale, so there was that) I have a ton…

“Heart On” Custom Design Quilt –

I love my friend Heath.  He is smart, and funny, and one of the kindest and most generous men you will ever meet. He also has a very naughty side (don’t we all) and every now and then….well. I had quite a few orders for my “Sheroes” quilt just before Christmas; (post to follow) and in the midst of those I received a VERY hilarious message in the wee hours of the morning. First off; I was like, “Huh. Never thought about that on a quilt.” Then; “I wonder if…
