For me, Nikki's new Panel Bag Pattern and some hardware. I have great plans to make this up for a national corporate team meeting for work in a couple of weeks.
I thought this book would also go well in the collection, Design it Yourself Clothes by Cal Patch
Matt and the kids bought me a new Nikon point and shoot camera that I am also pretty excited about. I have the best intentions to read the manual and learn heaps, but I have taken it to the kids swimming lessons twice and have not made it very far at all.
And Ayden's braces came off - hooray!

Because I am running so behind I thought I could show where I am up to on the Ice Cream Social Sew-a-long. Lots of inspiration. Yoke stage finished on the Oliver + S Icecream Dress.
Thanks for hosting Amy and Kate!

This weekend it's been miserable at wet, so wet that I have caught up on some sewing and Matt has been cooking. Nice! I don't think I have been late for Around the Block month before and I hate to miss deadlines, so I am very happy to have completed these blocks for Annie and Becky.
The top two blocks are for Annie's circle theme. Black fabric is a challenge for me, and circles something a bit different. I ended up tea dying the fabric on the flying geese block after a small disaster and no having any more of Annies backgound fabric. Can't wait to see your quilt Annie!
Becky requested wonky blocks for her little boy's big bed - when he gets there. I love making wonky blocks and it was such a shame to have to wait to start on these. The theme was wonky, quirky and fun. More to see on Around the Block here.
