sewing again

so i've been sewing again. a whole quilt which i had my first go at free motion quilting. and while its not perfect, it looks like. i found th epattern i used on janelle winds blog first. a link she shared. the quilt is easy and i love the scrappy look of it. heres the link. http://www.cluckclucksew.com/2009/12/raw-edge-circle-quilt-tutorial.html
i will share pics of mine later, its not a nice day here for pics today. i did add a boarder to mine. but i found the whole thing easy and quick. i had it complete in less than a week to use. its currently the rug we take to little athletics on a friday night.

today i woke with the urge to sew clothes. god knows why. i came across the link to this dress on one pretty thing. http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2010/08/solar-dress-free-pattern.html
the dress is easy to sew and i had it in less than an hour. way less. and emily loves it, it gives good twirl, very important in four year old world. the pattern has multi sizes and im thinking it would also look great as a top, which i think i will make for lilly so their clothes are just a little different.

the back, emily is in the four/five size of the pattern. its a little big on her, but i hope she gets to wear it next year as well.

and this one is just cause she is so damn cute..:)
