not quite what your grandma used to make...

Some news and some sewing.

Well May has come and gone and even with a large amount of rainy days here in Portland it's really beginning to feel like summer. Everything is blooming, the apple blossoms that line my street smelled amazing, and now the city smells like ocean and lilacs (my favorite smell) and I've already had one terrible sunburn! And I ended the month with my 28th birthday - celebrated with fabulous friends, a show at the Empire, and dancing into the wee hours.  All in all it's been a pretty good spring.

Also in May  - A Retro Remedy was the featured blog over at Making Jewelry   They have some great blog suggestions - not to mention the shop itself.

I have some orders coming up to work on next - tea towels, toddler pillows, pressed flower cards - as well as some gifts to work on. But for now I'm finishing up unfinished projects and filling up the Etsy shop.

The latest project was inspired by the material itself.  Sometimes when I'm just perusing the bins of fabric ends and remnants, with no planned project i'll just see something that needs to be made .

So I found this super soft, adorable flannel fabric - one piece was pink with white polka dots, another a marbled pink, and the 3rd (perfect for the edging) was stripe of pink, green, and white.  So they became a little throw/ baby blanket embroidered with "sugar and spice" and a big cupcake topped with a cherry. 

Once a take some finished pictures it's heading right to the Etsy shop.  

Until next time - have a great June!
