Constellations

This awesome tapestry is only $39 at Urban Outfitters. My dad left me with an affinity for all things astronomical. On seeing this I immediately started trying to figure out where it should go in my home. Once I puzzle that put, it’s mine!

Ruffled Goodness

I’d never knit a baby gift before – but when the occasion arose, it was time to find the perfect quick, easy and (most importantly) cute baby bonnet for the soon-to-be-born babe.

Elspeth’s Quilt

Elspeth’s quilt is finished. The big thing I learned: using Singer brand machine quilting thread on Singer brand bobbins and as the upper thread on. Singer 9960 machine (optimized for quilting) doesn’t work. If I’ve ever used crappier thread in my life I can’t recall it. Gutermann from now on -always!
