We're back in business!

So My laptop decided to die on me as well as all my patterns on it!!! Ahhhh! Well, I was FINALLY able to retrieve everything! I'm using the hubs lappy until we decide to get a nice desktop or another lappy...or both.

I'm happy to report that all is going well and we're doing good! I've really missed blogging! My kids have really taken over so that's where all my energy (literally) has been. I can say that I've been extremely busy sewing too! Not selfish sewing or sewing even just for fun....I've been so busy making wallets. It's been crazy around here with orders! (Feel free to drop me a line if you're interested in one)

I've had very little participation in swaps and such. I vowed to not join any swaps until after the new year.....or at least had a due date after the new year. So far, the only thing I've signed up for is the Disney Mini Quilt Swap on Instagram. I've been tempted to sign up for the other awesome swaps I see on IG but realistically I just don't have time right now. Too many things going on with the kids, family, hubs work, and well...Life.

Here are some fun things I've made over the recent past. Sorry for the bad pics...these are all from my phone.

This cute birthday cake mini for Leona's birthday! - Birthday Bash Swap

This fun and modern foldover clutch for Mara's birthday - Birthday Bash Swap

This beautiful wallet for Renee's birthday - Birthday Bash Swap

Some fabulous circle blocks for Michelle - Scrapbeelicous bee...which has ended. I can't wait to receive the rest of my blocks in the mail and put my quilt together!!!

See you again soon...hopefully :) post signature

Makin' it cute with FQS again!

I'm need to first apologize for my absence. Life has been pretty hectic and stressful lately. I've been feeling pretty overwhelmed with some things and haven't been sewing. Life just takes over sometimes and you have to take a step back to catch a breather. Anyways.....

I did have a chance to try Me and My Sister Designs new Makin' It Cute templates from Fat Quarter Shop though. They are so fun! I'm in love with the butterfly pack! So cute! My model was pretty excited about them too :)


I bet if you head over to the Jolly Jabber, they might have a list of more bloggers with their cute creations and perhaps a giveaway!
