So, as mentioned in my last post, my husband is out of town.  For me, this means cleaning and organizing.  And, today is just one of those days where I am energetic and raring to go.  The combination of these two things has led to superproductivity!

I present to you:

Cloth pad modeled after a Glad Rags liner, but really, these things are simple.  Cut a few oval-y shapes, sew, add a snap, and you’re done.   I’ve never made one before, and it was a breeze!


It’s not the most beautiful thing ever, or perfectly sewn, but it’s not like it needs to look pretty to do it’s job!  😀

 Next up, a bracelet that got a bit too long for my wrist, and might be a necklace instead.  It’s not finished yet, since I don’t know what it is.




Well, I need to get to work, so that’s all for now, but stay tuned because I’m sure there will be more ‘missing my husband’ projects to share.

Quilt Blocks in Progress

Here are a few quilt blocks I’ve made lately.


I’m new at this, so they are a bit wonky, but I like them that way! They are, however, not quite as wonky as they look in these pictures.


I was never interested in quilting due to the careful measuring and piecing, and the major potential for messing the whole thing up. My method of quilting is ‘throw a bunch of stuff together haphazardly’. I think it pains my very methodical and lovely quilter friend.


I can’t wait until I have enough blocks for an entire quilt. I plan to use an old blanket as the batting. Any advice as to whether that’s a good or bad idea would be appreciated.
