Hey Guys!

I had a sewing fun-filled weekend!  This saturday I took my first garment class.  I made a tunic!  Here are the pictures:

I used all my brain power making it and was happy to get back to being a Quilter!  LOL  Here is what I worked on this weekend:

Filling up a black “design wall” ….I love that thing! 

So it’s  a new week and I thought I start something new today, here are my weekly goals:

  1. Finish quilting Cloud Song.
  2. Work on Lady’s Stars (more on that later)

That is it for this week!  I hope these goals will keep me honest.  Until next time, Sew Pretty!

I am just a girl trying to be crafty. Well really a woman but my thoughts are girly. I am embarking on a journey. I hope to complete all of my goals, share and learn from others.

  1. Cute tunic!! (I really have a hard time sewing clothes as the patterns never seem to “fit” me properly.) You look great wearing it too.
    Love the green and black combination on Jay’s quilt. Coming together nicely.

  2. I love the black and lime green chevron quilt! I know I try my hand at garments/dresses every once in a while, but love it when I go back to quilting!

  3. cute fabric choice on the tunic!

  4. Love your tunic and the cute quilts! Making clothes is my latest obsession — especially for my daughter. I need to get busy and make some skirts! That tunic looks like a great casual shirt to kick around in this spring. Lovely!

  5. I never dare to make myself clothes, but your tunic looks really nice. I like your idea of putting down goals for the week, I hope they keep you on track!

  6. Very cute! Love your fabrics… It takes me forever to figure out clothes. I’m no seamstress!

  7. You are one talented lady! The quilt is awesome! I’d love to be able to do something that big and to that good of a standard one day. 🙂
    I’m new to wordpress and have just posted about a quilting project I am working on, so if you wouldn’t mind checking it out that’d be great 🙂
