Time in the Sewing Room!

I love my crazy, busy, hectic, and insane dillydally life!
I returned home from California ... celebrated our community Iceworm Festival ... taught a mitten class ... took a scrapbooking class ... and ... worked all week substituting at the high school!
After traveling through Oregon, I was looking forward to spending some time with "Her Majesty" and my sewing supervisor!  We made a huge mess ... such fun!  Notions were flying in every direction!  Flicka stopped momentarily to focus on the new pattern we were using.  How I love my silly quilt kitty!
However ... she is lacking when it comes to safety practices and hazardous circumstances!
Yep ... she needs to reread the section on fabric cutting safely in the "Quilt Kitty Manual"!
I made gifts ... pin cushions shaped like mini handbags!  We had a QBee birthday this week ... sew ...
... I just had to use quilting themed fabric and decided to fussy cut the handle ... too much fun!
I used novelty fabrics for the second one as well!  This fabric makes me giggle ... yep, I love being silly in the sewing room.
Seriously ... this just makes me chuckle!  I hope the recipient smiles each time she uses it!
The third one on the left was made for Girlfriend  DD ... I gave it to her for Valentine's Day ... her first pincushion!  It turned out almost as sweet as she is!
There is a pocket in the back ... honestly ... such fun to make!  I am looking forward to making them for each QBee's birthday!
It felt so good to be back in the sewing room ... our happy place ... where all sorts of shenanigans take place!  It doesn't matter how crazy life gets ... here is where sanity is restored.  Besides ... super crazy busy is the way Flicka and I roll!  ;-)

Do what you love.  Do dillydally
