in the works...

I'm planning on being a busy bee these next few days. I even have a plan, and a list. Well, I make lists all the time, to tell the truth, but I never stick to them :( 

This time, however, there are only three things on my list and I'm beyond excited about each of them.

My number one priority arrived in the mail yesterday. Seriously, how cute is this skeleton??? Must, must, must work on it tonight.

I also had the sudden need to turn leftover blocks from my Pink Bricks quilt (which I made way back in April) into a baby quilt. I don't know what the rush in my head is since these blocks were happily sitting around for months, but when the idea strikes, one must listen, right?

Penny Patch Quilt-Along

And then there's Rachel's new Penny Patch quilt along. OK, so the quilt along is for the beginners, but I really love her quilt and can't wait to make my own. 

I started pulling some fabric from my stash, these two quilts being my main color inspiration, but I still need to tweak this pile and definitely add a lot more low volume fabrics. I'm hoping to achieve a nice vintage look, any suggestions?

Wishing you all a very lovely rest of the day. Svetlana


  1. this all looks like delicious stuff. That skeleton - Adorable!!!

  2. Those quilting ideas can get really loud, right? They are hard to ignore sometimes so you just have to go with it.

  3. Oh that skeleton looks so adorable. Can't wait to see it finished.

  4. This skeleton looks adorable! I'm trying to sneak in some Halloween sewing this week, too!

  5. That skeleton looks like a fun project!

  6. The skeleton is seriously cute!

    I can't wait to see what you choose for the quilt along. I am going to post my fabrics later today. The quilt looks easy but will be pretty and I love to see what everyone chooses and how it plays out in the finished quilt.

  7. Looks like some fun sewing is ahead! Enjoy...

  8. the beginner, simpler quilts are the best! Love your fabric pull. Maybe some small ditsy florals and calicos for the vintage feel? Can't wait to see it!

  9. Svetlanko, mas krasne ukoly :) Koukám, že se také pouštíš do nového quiltu :) Krásné látky sis připravila!

  10. Oh yes, when the fabric calls you have to listen, or you might scare your sewjo away... ;o) Love the projects anyway :o)

  11. well if you have good bed then you must have a good pull over on it.
