I made this quilt for H’s 6th birthday this week, I finished it last week just in time for her big day on Thursday. I used the Lisa the Unicorn pattern from Elizabeth Hartman, and it was phenomenal. Clear directions, and so much fun to make.

We gave H this Hape Puppy Pouch kit for Christmas, and we sewed it up this month. I haven’t seen it available anymore, I’m not sure if it’s just sold out or discontinued. But if you can’t find the puppy, here’s the fox kit.

I did it! I sewed something, and it’s only 13 days in to the new year. I didn’t make much last year, it seemed, but I went back to work full time in July. I was a lot busier. This year, though, is my year of doing and making and reading and having some head space.

H got all of her blocks back from this summer quilting round robin back in September, and we love them. She’d asked for brown and rainbows, and that is what she got. We haven’t had a chance to sew this quilt together yet, but we will. She’s been less interested in sewing this fall, but she did just ask me the other day if we could make something, so I think we’ll pull these blocks out soon.

It’s here! Trick or Treat Day came and went. I was so in the weeds with this Belle costume, which H asked for back in July, and I ended up sewing the whole thing on Friday night. I stayed up all night, it took 11 straight hours of sewing, I binged all 9 episodes of Stranger Things 2 while I did it. But she is so excited, and I love how this gown turned out.

Still haven’t finished her costume! But I did finish this Halloween quilt. Let’s be real here, I’ve cut out the paper pattern but have not cut any fabric or sewn a stitch yet. I’ve been under the weather the past couple of days and haven’t made any more progress, but I will. I am determined to get this costume done by next Saturday, for a costume birthday party for one of H’s classmates.

These pictures aren’t great, but it’s too drizzly a day to lay this quilt top out on the lawn for some photos, and I just realized my camera’s battery is dead. iPhone all the way.

We finished this round robin at the beginning of September, but we haven’t pieced the blocks H received yet. There were actually four blocks we made over the summer, and I just completely forgot to take photos of the third! I can’t believe I did that, but if you check #kidsquiltroundrobin on Instagram you’ll see everyone’s photos.

The big draw, the real reason we were in Italy last week, was to see Venice. I’ve been to Rome, and I did an art librarianship course in Florence in grad school. I love Italy. But I’d never been to Venice.

I started this quilt back in April to get ready for the newest season of Doctor Who, and then life happened and I put aside the finished quilt top for a couple of months. Then when the 13th Doctor was announced, I got inspired to pick it up again. I finished it over the weekend, and here’s a loose tutorial so you can make this one, too!
