I’ve been slowly working on a Halloween quilt. My friend Jessee came up with a coffin dresden pattern
and since I could not leave well enough alone I had to try and use paper piecing to create little windows in the coffins. She now has included my little hack with her pattern incase you’d like to make occupied coffins too. Hopefully I’ll get my quilt finished before Halloween!
I made a fabric bento box, using my bento box fabric
. I used a pattern from the book Stash Happy: Patchwork
by Cynthia Shaffer. Lark books had posted the project for free online here
. I made a few changes to the pattern by lengthening the handles and not adding a patchwork flap. I am planning to use it to store bento supplies. I tried it out with some of my washi tape, markers, and little wrapped candy, it holds quite a bit more then I expected.
I think it would make such a cute gift for someone filled with your favorite asian candies like Pocky
, Matcha Kit Kat
, or my favorite Konpeito

Today I wanted to share with you a quick and easy cross stitch design that I made. I’ve been wanting to do some cross stitching in the evenings when Tom is home and we are watching a movie, so I made this little design because I am excited about Spring. I’ve ordered all my garden seeds, and printed out my planting schedule. Now it’s just about waiting.
I stitched up my girl on 32 count linen (over 2
) but you can stitch her on 16 count aida cloth
if you prefer.
Finished she measures about 5×5.5 inches. Please remember this pattern is for personal use only.

Working on those New Year resolutions…..still adding a few more coordinating fabrics, but so far here are four new designs that I am waiting to proof. Vintage toys for everyone!
I’ve been working on some silly new fabric patterns, trying to add loads of crazy little things going on in each. I realized when I’ve been sewing lately that some of my favorite fabrics to use have all kinds of things happening, so I wanted to try it in my fabric. I’ve ordered proofs and will post again when they come in. I do have a new set of library inspired fabrics
already up for sale over at Spoonflower, but I never posted photos!
The middle one is just in the beginning stages, but will be all about baking.
