Eyeglasses Tray

I love trays of all sorts and I’ve been wanting to sew one for my eyeglasses lately. I got a new nightstand at Ikea. It’s made out of steel and I thought it would preferable to lay my eyeglasses on something a bit more soft while I sleep. So, why not a fabric tray? I […]

Herringbone Quilting

Earlier this summer, I’ve shown you a WIP quilt top made with a rainbow charm pack (see this post). I had mentioned I had to make the quilting for a quilt designed and pieced by my friend Cinzia using the same charm pack. I finished the quilting and gave it back to her last week. […]

Back to School

School started last week. It feels so weird to have some time alone in the house. Weird, but good! Time when I can totally focus on what I’m doing and be more productive. I had some small projects to make before school. My son needed two pencil cases. My younger one asked for one too. […]
