Not enough sewing going on. =(

It's getting nice outside and that means less time to spend inside sewing.  

A few Saturdays ago, I did manage to complete all of the blocks on my Elephant Parade, but I think I want to re-do the blue flowers and make them in the style of the red ones.  I like the scale of those better.

What I'm able to do rain or shine is enhance my stash!  Yesterday I stopped by The Sewcial Lounge and picked up some goodies AND did a super quick Make-n-Take Infinity Scarf.  They had the fabric cut and pinned.  All I needed to do were 2 seams and small amount of topstitching.  The fabric is silky soft!

Somehow I stumbled across these scissors on Amazon a few weeks ago.  I was looking for inexpensive snips to take on a plane.  These are sold by different companies and are listed as different sizes, but they are IDENTICAL!  Crazy!  What else is crazy is how much I love them!  I'm tempted to buy several more (they were $5 each).

The last stash addition is courtesy of MassDrop.  One.Hundred.Needles!!!  I will have no excuse to not change my needle more frequently. =O

Another thing that doesn't stop because of nice weather is dreaming about new projects.  I'm very, very, very tempted to join in (late as usual) the Hillside Houses Quilt Along.  Check out Pretty Little Quilts and see how cool this pattern is.  I think I have almost enough stash to make this?



  1. Pretty new fabrics! The scissors really are cute. I love your elephant parade quilt, it's such a great design!

  2. Fun take on the Elephant Parade.. it's so nice and bright with that yellow background!

  3. I love your elephants! I'm having the same problem...not enough time to sew once I get the yard work done.
