Well, don't call them just yet…I did finish some things this week! and I want to share them with you.

First of all, I'm featured on Stephanie's Unfinished Sewing Projects Blog today!! Someone tell mom I actually finished something! yipeee!!!

Here's the mini quilt I did and submitted to her this week:

Here's what I did first:

I just made these little mini quilts out of fabric strips I had left over from one of my Angel quilts. The fabric is from Joanna's Whimsy collection(Fig Tree & Co for Moda) and Kaari's Rural Jardin collection (French General for Moda)  (the hanger strip is from Joanna's Fresh Cottons…yum!!) 

So hop on over to Stephanie's blog and see how I made it! and the detailed pics! 

Keep Checking the ETSY store for when I load it there for sale!

Soooo, last weekend I went to a darling friend's baby shower. I wanted to make her something really fun and unique…something special for her third child – her first girlie!!

I tweeted (follow me here!) to my peeps asking for baby ideas…ohhh I got some fun ideas – handmade baby shoes, a peek-a-boo jar, a infant-cover for a shopping cart…

       But I was looking all around my craft studio for some inspiration and came upon my pile of pink minky dimple dot fabric!! yummmmmy…

I grabbed a stash of ribbons I have, some Moda fabric, and I created a ribbon blankie (like a taggie)… 

Here are some fun close-ups!

So those are real dumdum wrappers…

I sewed them onto a piece of muslin then washed it in the washing machine (to get all the sugar ants to go away!! I recommend cleaning and spraying the wrappers first!!!!).

P7295923b

One last shout out…

I joined a new online community yesterday called

the Creative Empire!

It's super cool…and has caused me to do some business thinking…okay, a LOT of thinking about everything. What is your passion? What drives you? Why are you doing what you are doing? 

One of the challenges they threw out there was to do something everyday…something having to do with your passion. My passion is creating, so I'm challenging myself to create everyday, and for extra accountability, I'm hoping to blog everyday to share what I've done! Doesn't that sound fun?

One thing I'm going to use, especially this next week while Mr Gorgeous and I go to a pastor's conference in Pennsylvania is this:

my new sketchbook

with the Sketchbook Project

P7215768
This is the awesomest!!!

I even have my own Brooklyn Art Library card!!

P7215770
P7215771
my theme is "It's gonna be fun, i swear"…so I'm going to have fun sketching, art journaling, painting, collecting quotes and scriptures…ohhhh I can't wait. I've already drawn out the first page. I'll share that soon!!    

So don't forget…I've got a new mini kit coming out on Sunday!! I can't wait to see what you can do with it! 

And if you want anything custom made that you've seen here, let me know…

thanks for supporting Sally's Angelworks!!
