Remember the present I said I was working on for our Miss Ellie's 2nd birthday?  Well....this isn't a super picture, but isn't it stinkin' cute?  The fabric is Riley Blake's Ladybug Garden and the pattern is from Kwik Sew.  Don't rush in tomorrow to buy the pattern because I sold the last one yesterday!  But, I do have some more on their way....it'll just take a few days to get them.  The hat isn't completely done ~ there's Velcro that goes on the chin strap and the opening in the lining where I pulled it right sides out needs to be stitched shut.  Now....I'm thinking at the very least some really fun sunglasses to go with this.  Maybe a sundress?  Hmmmm......can't wait until the end of the month and I can see if she'll put it on for Grandma and we'll update this with her cute two year old face!

How's your Sunday?  My goodness, what a difference a week made in the Pacific Northwest!  I think it's 20 degrees cooler this Sunday and really wet compared to Easter Sunday.  But, you know what that means!  Great sewing weather!  I have all the hexagon blocks laid out on my design wall to get sewn together, but a funny thing happened on the way.....this book came in last week "The Blue and the Gray ~ Quilt Patterns Using Civil War Fabrics".  Okay, I don't have lots of Civil War Fabrics, but there was a runner in the book that looked like something fun to make.  It's hourglasses.  I grabbed some French General fabrics and have been making hourglass blocks in between bookwork, laundry, pork chops and a few other various and sundry activities.  Going to finish squaring them up at the shop tomorrow and lay it out on the design wall. 

This week?  Well, I need to get a Shop Hop block sent to In the Beginning by the end of the week, sew that will be something I need to focus on right away.  Otherwise, it's the usual fun with fabric @ Fab-Etc.  Hope you've had a lovely weekend!
