Summer didn't go as exactly as we planned

I've been absent from my blog and from yours. I've been absent from my sewing room. Mainly I think I just haven't had any drive to complete anything. Or talk about sewing. Brady kicked summer off poorly by breaking his arm, 2 hours after the final bell of the year rang. It was a pretty severe break, and he fractured another bone as well. He had surgery, and an 8 inch rod seemed to straighten everything out. 

We still made the best of summer.  We had a nice trip to Chicago. We watched a lot of movies. He's still on total activity restrictions until January, most likely.  He has surgery again in late November. It's hard for a boy to be as careful as he has and watch all of his friends be active.

I. Love. This. Quilt.

Graduation present time...with Buddy getting the flu I wasn't sure I'd get this done in time but I did. I love the Amy Butler prints and the dragonfly quilting on it.
Sorry for the terrible picture. When you wait until the last minute to finish you don't have a lot of time to wait for the perfect light for your shot.  

Happy thoughts

Paper crafting.

I've been making some cards for upcoming weddings and graduations. I really like the neat fold of these cards. I took the ribbon off one so you can see it.

Saturday Sewing

I loved that finished Lorax quilt. I decided to make a mini star quilt out of October Afternoon fabric. I went to reach for the white, but opted to use some linen I had. I like the results. My husband didn't care for the muted tones ... but I do. It isn't my normal.

I whipped up these cute, personalized goodie bag toppers the other day. I thought they turned out very cute!

Paper crafting

Well, I haven't had the sewing itch in sometime, but mom and I have been enjoying making cards. And, I did make some bookmarks for reading month fun. What projects are keeping you busy?
