New Camo Dress, Gardening, Embroidery, Sashiko & Quilting!!

Whew, we've been busy! Between trying to get my son finished with his home schooling for the year, our little backyard garden project (which I admit The Bald Man has taken over!) going into work at our business twice a week and ofcourse working out like a crazy person... I have still found time to sew... a little...
Check out our back yard garden... its coming along!! I saw a tiny squash yesterday... And picked my first batch of lettuce from my deck garden...
Here's one of the embroidery projects I did a couple of weeks ago... I couldn't post them till now because they were part of my moms Mothers day present... coffee themed kitchen towels... cute!
I fancied them up after the embroidery with some lace...


This week I made some of my quilt... here's the fabrics up close... I love mermaids!


Its a very simple quilt project... its my first real quilt...a queen size!! I have all the squares sewn together... I have to find something for the borders... then it'll be off to mom's for the quilting part.. because she has a big long arm fancy quilt machine (a machine I don't have... yet... heehee!)



A wall hanging ! All stitching done with my babylock sashiko machine!



This dress was made a couple of weeks ago and I forgot to post it!!! It was supposed to be a shirt but it came out sooooo long I decided why waste all that fabric by cutting it off... I do love a mini dress... Its made from pattern M6034... I know I just made a camo dress with this same fabric... but it was different... I don't think I can have to many pink camo outfits anyways!!




See much different than the last one... its sleeveless and has pleats all down the sides ...



Also, this week I started another sashiko wall hanging, and made 2 purses... embroidered a camisole top (turned out so nice even with the mistakes I made) And I finally finished the animal print chiffon I was distressing on my felting machine!
More later!
God bless and have a great weekend!!!

Yes, you have been busy. Congratulations on the garden! That is another thing that can become addictive. All of your projects look great. The mini dress looks planned and looks terrific on you.
