Quite suddenly I realized the pillow I'd made for Mia's bassinet is now ridiculously too small. She's moved to a mini-crib (very convenient when you're crammed into a tiny house like ours) and her head has, like, doubled in size ~ definitely time for a new pillow. I stitched up this pillowcase (and the pillow) one afternoon when Mia took a nice loooooooong nap.
Right now, at this very moment while I'm writing this post, she's having sweet dreams on that pillow. I'm back to working on Olivia's quilt top using this, and this. With the scraps from the quilt top, I've been paper piecing some diamonds for a doll quilt...
And that little grey basket up there? I got it from Target a long time ago, from the dollar spot. It was plain and grey ~ I gave it some top-stitching, a patch, a button, and a strawberry pin cushion made of wool. It's a useful little basket (I always bring it in the car to hold my paper piecing stuff), but now it's pretty!
And yes, I love the woolen strawberry (made with Heather Bailey's pattern.)
And I love all the new fabric I just got from Sew Deerly Loved. This, above, is the new 2013 line of Lecien's "Old New 30's".
Pretty prints by Atsuko Matsuyama.
"Hill Farm" by Brenda Riddle for Lecien.
Can't forget the hexagon cheater prints from the "Old New 30's" line...
And these adorable prints are from Tasha Horsley's new line with Riley Blake, "Little Red Riding Hood."
And now I absolutely must stop buying fabric. I figured one last stop at Sew Deerly Loved would be a happy way to go out.
