Carafting


I'm learning to use a sewing machine, and it's exciting! I like to share about my adventures in sewing, and show anyone who’s interested how my projects turn out. I'm a self taught novice and I appreciate instruction and encouragement from those with more sewing experience.

Sewing is not the only crafty thing I do. For instance, I am an avid friendship bracelet maker, and for some reason I can't stop making envelopes out of everything I can get my hands on. (p.s. I love mail!)

Okay, and I cook and I bake too. Yum!

Happy Carafting!


I got a new pillow today, and made a fanceh pillow case for it!

A friend of mine is moving to another state tomorrow, so I made her a sparkle punch quilted pillow sham for a going away present. I’d call this a success. Hope she likes it.
Next, I want to make a regular pillowcase for myself.

I loved the block I made for #AstroBlockChallenge so much that I made 6 more. This is about 18”x27”. I love this, but I’m not sure what I want to do with it. Where should I go from here?

Last night I made this wonky star quilt block. I absolutely love how it turned out. I made it for the Astronomical Quilts! Block Challenge. Astronaut Karen Nyberg made a quilt block in space, and now all are welcomed to make their own star-themed quilt blocks. Send in your block and it will be combined with everyone else’s (including Nyberg’s) to make one great big astronomical quilt!

Spring semester finally over! Which means maybe I’ll start sewing things again. Oh, I already have. Fiiiinally finished this potholder—my first! Happy summer everyone!

I haven’t posted in forever. I haven’t done much sewing lately. It’s been sad, dark times. But I’ve been doing about a manicure a week to keep the creative juices flowing.
Here’s my latest and greatest.
Yuri’s Night is thus Saturday. Have a Nominal Yuri’s Night!
