Me Mondays: Baby Girls Room (300)

What a delightful post number 300 is all about London’s room and how much sewing I’ve been doing – not a lot of projects mind you but alot of sewing…here’s what I’ve been working on.

It all started with London’s room being a bit cold with our dipping temperatures, and she likes it really dark when she sleeps, so I picked up block out material also.

I wanted the dots to be larger – so I found a good template, nothing like a Christmas plate to brighten any job.

Pink, of course

good paid of paper scissors and fabric scissors – 40 circles later

all randomly appliqued in place with an iron, then by machine. I got it down to sewing 10 dots on a panel (there is 4 panels) to 1 panel in 1 hour – all while she slept.

Super cute!!

Pastimes Online Presents…(258)

our newest and youngest employee…London Jean born August 28. Shes ready to take orders and cut kits and star in the next educational video…when she wakes up from her nap!


So since this new little beauty has come into the Moss house I now can make things for her as well as everyone else and it’s been so fun…

First I did these name plates:

start with a canvas board that you can buy at Michaels,

pick your shapes, square, round, rectangle and then pick your size…I varied the sizes

Next: pick your font I chose something uplifting and fun. You want one letter per 8.5 x 11″ sheet of paper. Change your print settings to print outline instead of solid – just to save ink:)

Next: pick your fabrics. I wanted her name to coordinate with A Kitens Tale bom which will be hanging in her room soon…so that’s the fabrics I chose to work with. If I didn’t have a big enough piece in the colours I wanted I just pieced it… 

Now play with placement of the letters on your boards, floss in different colours and have fun!

then just staple it to your borads, nice and tight making sure you have the letter in the front straight..enjoy!

I love to personalize things for people, so I bought this kit (shhhhh don’t tell anyone) and modified (of course) it with her name…


So until next time, thanks for visiting, asking me where I’ve been and how I’ve been doing…

remember to stay happy and creative everyday!



Quilting with Pretty Stitches & Yo-Yo’s (172)

Okay so I finally finished this quilt top, got it layered and now onto the quilting. This one is for ME and only ME…well maybe Tig can have a snooze once in a while on it too 😉

I’ve wanted a log cabin as long as I can remember and when our guild decided to do a Pizza Box Challenge (you do a block, add 1 meter of your FAV fabric from the block as extra then it gets passed from friend to friend 9 times so you have 9 blocks). Since I wanted a log cabin, I had each of the gals do a log cabin block for me…it worked out PERFECTLY!! I then proceeded to make a million more log cabin blocks…

I decided to have fun with some of my decorative stitches

and more stitches

Which stitch is your favourite? Once I’m done the blue side I’ll move on the cream side because I have cream variegated threads to match that side also 🙂 

I’ve also been playing with yo-yo’s and ALOT of them too…96 I’ll need in total and I’m almost halfway, YES!!

to give you perspective on size, yes that is my actual bobbin for my Janome

can you say teeny tiny adorable yo-yos that I love each and every one of them…
