Date, pillows and t-shirts

This weekend was pretty low key for us. We watched a few movies (Gnomio and Juliet gets an A, True Grit a B- b/c I fell asleep, and Pride and Prejudice an A), went on a date, and I got some sewing in.

Went to Red Lobster for dinner b/c we had a gift card. Then we went for dessert and drinks at Bordinos on the patio.

I sewed my first pillows with invisible zippers. Where have these been all my life?! I seriously loved sewing with them and how the finished product looks so professional. I'll definitely be using them again. Another throw pillow tip: stick with down/feather inserts. If you use stuffed filling, they will be flat pillows within a year.

I also finished a t-shirt quilt top. I fixed that wonky looking white one in the middle after I took this picture. These aren't particularly difficult, just time consuming. I learned a couple of lessons that I will definitely refer back to if I make another one.

I've been doing a lot of custom orders for friends and love it! I like these orders because they're personal and they're helping to pay for my Haiti trip.

That's all for now!


  1. I have to comment about your T Shirt Quilt - I have so many of the same ones from my MASC days. Its great to see others have those too!
