Project To Do list and Sofi update!

Here is a list of the projects that I want to do throughout this next year. Not all of them are crafts, but the majority are.

  • Finish Sofi's Onezie quilt. (By 9/10/12)
  • Finish Great-Grandma's quilt project. It's a really nice on-point nine-patch quilt that she put together as a quilting kit for my sister and I ended up taking it over. Will post pictures later!
  • Set up sewing room. (ASAP once I get back home)
  • Mend blue Easter dress.
  • Mend Matt's orange shirt.
  • Make Camille's elephant.
  • Make Sofi some skirts. (She has a bunch of really cute tights that she hasn't gotten a chance to wear yet!)
  • Do something with old clothes (I am really wanting to re-purpose my old clothes into something. aybe some new clothes!)
On a completely different Subject, look who's started eating!

Sewing projects, as of lately.

Here's some completed (and not so completed) sewing projects that I have been working on lately. Mostly for my senior project, but also just for fun.

A couple of patches of a quilt that I am working on for Sofi, made from her old onezies.

A bag that I made out of an old skirt and head scarf. I need to either reinforce the straps or create a stronger shoulder strap because right now, it can't carry much weight.

A stuffed elephant that I made for my older sister, Michelle. He's supposed to be the first doctor from Doctor Who. But he still needs his tailcoat!
You can find the pattern for this cute little elephant here:

Generations Meet

So, the daily blog thing obviously hasn't been working out. At this point, I'm hoping for at least twice a week! Here's Sofia being held by her Great Grandpa for the first time.

Happy New Year!

My New Year's Resolution was to start a blog. And since it's already the 8th, I figured that I might as well start. This blog will just be a documentation of my life and photography skills. Here are some pictures of my daughter that I've taken this year so far. (Expect a lot of pictures of her, she's a great subject!"
