Using the pedal on my sewing machine hasn't been a piece of cake since my knee surgery. I wish I could be more comfortable using my left leg. But I can't seem to get it to work out. So my finish this week consisted of sewing on binding.
A scrappy peanuts quilt I started pre broken leg.
I need to figure out why my pictures look blurry when I post them. They look fine when I take them. Hmmm.

It was a start a long time ago as a leader/ender project. From scraps too!
The other plan I had was to finish the little guy's room. On this front I had lots of help. I wish I had of taken a before picture
We channeled our inner pintrest fanatic and repainted this previously white furniture. It was discolored and ugly. I'm so happy with the way it turned out.
I also managed to do a fun banner thing on the windows and a pillow too.
Poor Molly is very confused, between everyone returning to school and missing her long morning walk she's particularly needy
I'm crossing my fingers that I can have a productive weekend.Wishing everyone a happy weekend!

We've had some changes around here and spent the past couple of weeks redoing a bedroom for the little guy. I haven't been able to take too many pictures. Hopefully next week I can share more. But for right now I can share this quilt which is finally hanging up
I also have these guys back out. Hopefully I'll be up and around soon.

A few weeks ago I came across this fabric
It's the Italian alphabet. I wanted to make an Italian quilt for my daughter who traveled to Italy for a study abroad semester last year. Did you know there are lots of Paris themed fabrics but after much looking this is the only Italy fabric I could find. It's a Michael Miller print. I also found this

week playing with laminated cotton fabric. I made the little guy a new bag for daycare.
Since bags and totes are always a challenge for me I was pleased with this one.
I also finished up some bibs. Now that he's feeding himself, meals are a pretty messy event. I got the patterns from a blog I found via pintrest (see I actually do make things I find on there), JRoxDesigns http://jroxdesigns.wordpress.com/2013/05/14/easy-reversible-bib-pattern-featured-on-craftaholics-anonymous-today/
When I contacted Amber to ask her if I could link to her blog, I found out that she lives about 10 minutes away from me! Small world.
Oh, and one little girl bib.
I love this pattern. Thank you Amber for sharing the tutorial. It's a perfect size for a toddler or a just turned one year old who's toddler sized.
