Just a couple of photos of a quilt I finished last month. The fabric was bought in a fat quarter bundle with a panel included 2 years ago on vacation in Chicago. I held on to it not sure what style of quilt I wanted to make. I find it hard to work with panels because I never want to cut them up so I try to work around them you know. I really like how this turned out even though I was very unhappy with it while quilting it. My machine was giving me such fits. Lots of skipped stitches and snapping thread constantly. After this quilt was done I replaced the bobbin case and the problem seems to be solved. The bobbin case was pretty beat up and worn. Anyways, the blueish green fabric in this quilt I dyed myself and I also used that to back it and bind it. This quilt was made for Alec. I'll have to take a photo of him using it. Its so cute how he climbs onto the couch and covers up with it when he's tired. I even have enough blocks leftover for a baby or toddler quilt which I think I will put together and sell. Makes me nervous to think of selling my work but people seem to love it so why not right. I'll leave you with a photo of Easter cuteness from this year. At our towns local egg hunt Alec was much more interested in filling his bucket with the rocks from the playground than finding the eggs. Bye!

Well I came on with good intentions to update with all of my projects and what I've been working on. I uploaded my photos from my camera and realized darn! I've been taking all the photos with my phone and putting them on instagram! Seriously, instagram is addicting, like really addicting. It has put me in touch with so many wonderful, crafty people who do such beautiful work and its such a pleasure to see their work and process and it's great to get to talk to them about it as well. So if you'd like to see my daily photos of what I'm working on and doing follow me on instagram. My id is jaayimee. And I promise I will make a point of taking more photos with my regular camera too. I do have a before photo to share with you. Remember me saying I needed to clean out my sewing room closet but it was going to have to wait until after Christmas? Well I took the before photos so you can see how bad it really is. Some time this year it will get all torn out and stuff will be gotten rid of and it will be organized and cleaned up. I did clean it up a bit yesterday and toss a few things but that is because I was looking for some thing (that I never found I might add) but I will be doing a major clean out this year. Before...
