Quality crafting time

It has been a good few days, with lots of crafty goodness!

I spent some time catching up on my Sea Breeze Quilts "Chocolate Marshmallow Sampler" quilt along blocks:

blocks 7-10 of the Chocolate Marshmallow Sampler

Blocks 7-10 are now complete, and I am all caught up! Only two blocks to go in this one, I believe.

19 pillowcases packed up and ready to go

I also got all of the pillowcases washed, ironed and packaged for donation.

recent order of four cuts from Gorgeous Fabrics

And I received a fabric order from Gorgeous Fabrics. Yum!!! Remember how I said I wanted to do more garment sewing? My plan at this point: tops from the b/w stripe and the purple, a skirt from the coral stripe, and not sure about the brown. They were actually sold out of the one I originally ordered and I chose this as a replacement, but I'm not sure I like it for the cardigan I had in mind... so it might turn into a skirt. Not sure yet. The next step though is to get them pre-washed, which with long swaths of fabric that need to be air dried, is kind of a process. Hopefully I'll fit them into the laundry cycle here soon.

In addition, I've been working on some party prep for Big Bear's upcoming birthday. He's turning 8! Crazy!


  1. great looking blocks and WOW! you made a lot of pillow cases.

  2. That green and brown is a fun color combination for the Chocolate Marshmallow blocks, yours look like Chocolate Mints.
