Under Construction

While doing a little construction, giving my blog a new look. I came across these vintage "Sewing machine trading cards" on the web! I LOVE the look on this little girls face. This is what I feel like every time I sit down at my machine.

Beasley Bed

Mr. Incredible requested a knock-off beasley bed for his
side kick Mr. Comfortable for Christmas.
I'm obviously forgiven for being late :)

FYI i did not take a picture of the inside but lets just say an old pool noodle and 2 discarded comforters (been saving for a while) + 50% off coupon at JoAnns let me do this on the cheap. I put a zipper in the back so I can wash the berber covering and a nice little reversable quilted pad for more frequent washes.

Baby Quilt

I'm going to have a new nephew soon! I want to get this quilt done BEFORE he arrives. It was supposed to be done by Christmas but a nasty little cold decided not to let that happen. So now my goal is to have it done before the end of January. Not a tradition pattern, but I'm in *Love* with modern quilt patterns right now. My daughter and I picked the fabrics so that Mom AND Baby could enjoy the quilt. Very much my daughters idea to incorporate a little something femanine/elegant in the quilt, also seen here in another baby quilt we made. The camel is pulled from an image on the back of the quilt which I did not get a picture of yet, but lime green flannel animal print and all baby :) can't wait to put on the brown/spot binding and give it a snuggle. But first I have to go talk sweet to the Green Machine so she will do some flawless quilting for me.
