Mini Swap Quilt

I don't participate in swaps often but sometimes I just need something to get me sewing due to my busy schedule. I joined Schnitzel and Boo's mini quilt swap on Instagram and let me say, it was so much fun. I might have to do it again. These are the beautiful items that I received from my partner.
Those pincushions are so pretty. How fun are those fruit ones? I also have a needle book which I really needed but never got around to making. The hexagon piecing is awesome.

Halloween Sewing

It seems like every year my girls choose a character that is hard to find a costume for or not available at all like this year. They were not able to shop for the materials with me until the week of the Halloween party. Here's the aftermath of 2 days worth of sewing and 2 1/2 hours of sleep total.

Mini Quilt Swap

I haven't had much time sewing as of late but I did join some swaps. It really pushed me to create and it was just what I needed. I bought some charm packs of Bonnie & Camille's new line called Hello Darling. I love the beautiful prints and colors are so cheery.

I have been squeezing in a bit of time here and there to work on this shirt. The pattern is by New Look #6232. At first it was pretty easy to just mark all the darts and pleats then sew the shirt together until I got to the front plackets and sleeve plackets.
