Happy New Year

Just wanted to share some projects I was working on in the past month.

But first I have to introduce my great nephew, Liam. This is the baby I made the blanket and accessories for a few months ago and my sister’s first grandchild.

I found this from a book my daughter bought me. It was done by paper piecing but I am working on a way without paper piecing the blocks. Below is a close up of one of the blocks and I decided to add a border to finish it off.

Changed blog name

I wasn’t really thrilled with the name I originally chosen and have been thinking on changing it. I came up with sew toni. I hope everybody likes it. Of course I had to play on the word sew and include my name so what else could I choose.

Since it has been awhile since my last post I want to include a couple of things I have been working on.

My nephew and his wife are expecting their first child, a boy, due around Christmas so I made a blanket, a couple of burp cloths, and a bib.

for Liam

I also made a purse from the fabric that was on my wall from my first post.

I have several works in progress which two of my projects are quilts. One for my bed and one for my daughter, pictures later. I also learned paper piecing in the last couple days. I will post some more pictures in a few days and I will try not to wait over a month to post again.

 

keep sewing,

Toni
