What I've Been Up To
One of my student's Quilt As You Go Baby Quilt
Yesterday, I taught my Quilt As You Go Baby Quilt pattern at Fabric Warehouse in Lakeland, Florida. I truly, truly love teaching sewing and quilting. I have done so many things in my life. I have been a Barber/Stylist, Tupperware Executive Manager, Preschool teacher and of course Stay at Home Mom/Home Educator. I have finally found what I want to do long term, teach sewing and quilting and design patterns. I just love it. The people that you meet are so nice and I just love what I do.
I am still planning my UFO Challenge and looking for the perfect gifts. I promise to get back to you soon about the details.
The inspiration dress for a patchwork dress for my little girl
Now that I am have finished that drapery order. I am planning my next projects. I am still working on my dresden plates quilt and planning some more projects with Dresden Plates. I want to teach a Dresden plates class this summer. I am also wanting to sew for my girls. My youngest is almost 8 years old and I am quickly going to run out of little girls to sew for. I have planned so many dresses in the past that never came to be and I just want to make the time to sew for them more.
I am showing a picture of a dress that I saw in a Children's store last year. The picture is not that great, as I took it with my Iphone. I hope you can see it well enough. It is a patchwork design on the bias and the yoke is made with wide grossgrain ribbon. This is my inspiration for a dress I am planning. I actually went out and bought fabric and ribbon right after I saw this dress. I just need to adapt a pattern to make it work. I think it is going to be fun to make. Well, I guess I should stop blogging and go give the girls their school assignments for the day and get in the studio.
