Catch Up

As promissed, here's a little catch up post of some items I've completed recently...

I showed this outfit earlier, but here's a shot of Megan in the outfit she wore to the Dog Show:
(Patterns: CarlaC's A-Line, Easy Fit Pants, and Patchwork Bucket Hat from

I found a 1/2 yard of this fabric stashed away and was going to use it for more burp cloths, but thought I'd see if there was enough for a top. And there was!
(Pattern: New Look 6906)

This top was made for a trip to the Downtown Aquarium:
And Megan and Daddy looking at the fish:

I love finding remnants at Hobby Lobby! This one was almost a full yard and was just perfect for trying out a new pattern.

Felt Letters - I plan to make a travel felt board that Megan can take in the car.

Disappearing 9-Patch - finally finished the top! Now to find time to quilt it.

And finally... here's a peek at the 60+ yards of fabric that came into the house during July. Now to be completly fair, a few pieces were probably bought in June and a couple are from August. I finally got around to folding everything and thought I'd snap a quick picture when done. Wow - the stack looks like it could topple over!

I have plans for some of the fabrics... the 4 Jelly Rolls will be quilts; the FQ stack along with 2 1-yard pieces from the same line (Heather Peterson) will be a quilt of some sorts; the Patty Young (green) will probably be a bag for me and an outfit for Megan; the Amy Butler Lotus and Full Moon Dot (along with a couple of other pieces) will be an outfit for Megan; the Jennifer Paganelli (green and white) may be a top for me; and some of the Heather Bailey will be a bag for me and some an outfit for Megan.

Any ideas for the rest of the fabrics?

Very pretty outfits and your dd is just adorable!

You should try a tunic or peasant from Carla and Jennifer...we have them in the Etsy store now! That green and white is great!
