Lately



 -I've been kind of getting into dress making. Just testing the water. One wearable darling ranges muslin down, the real one to follow this week. And then proper pics. I promise!








 -I got some superfunhappytime mail for a Fat Quarterly Designer Challenge. Haven't decided what it will be yet. But I'm thinking I might upcycle some old pillow cases and make them pretty with these lovely prints...? 



 -I got to play with some lovely lovely Heather Ross for Jo's Brit Bee blocks. Her theme was circles, so I made one giant dresden, and an appliqu├ęd fussy cut one.





 -Oh yeah, and I painted my nails. 




So, a pretty standard week :o)
