Sew Grateful..

Well as the work week winds down, I just wanted to show you a few things I have been up to.  First thing, I made another Amy Butler Coin Keeper: In the background you will see the cathedral quilt that I wrote about here.  Patiently I have completed 2 rows.  Maybe I will do 2 more this weekend?

Late in the afternoon, I thought to myself that I wanted to make a little blouse, so I put together the Colette Sorbetto, a free downloadable pattern.  This is the second thing I sewed and it is a real easy sew, you can change it up to express your own individual style!  Here’s what I put together:

I used a fabric that I purchased from Joann’s Fabrics.  (By the way did you know that there is a Joann’s Fabrics App?  It is really awesome and lets you keep your coupons in your phone and use them when you are checking out at the register).

This is a Lisette fabric and is so soft!  I was really surprised!  Joann’s had a large selection of all sorts of Lisette fabrics.  I had a really hard time making a decision.

A close-up shot reveals the detail of the fabric and also the bias tape I made out of a gingham black and white cotton.  I will be wearing this today!

So as I close this week of sew grateful,here is another thing that I am grateful for:

PEEK-A-BOO! (that’s our dogs’ name- the other one is Ruby

Have a great weekend!
