I have actually been up to a great deal fabric-wise, although not with the actual documenting and posting . . . . So here goes:
T-Shirt Dresses for my nieces, which all looked something like this:
I used the instructions in 'Sew Pretty T-Shirt Dresses', which includes all manner of tips for those of us who don't think we work well in three dimensions, as well as size guidelines for skirts of varying fullness and length up to girls size 8.
I also finally finished by my hand-stitched hexie quilt. Every bit of this is hand-stitched, except for the blind back seam on the binding. I honestly loved the hand-stitching process, but think I may restrict myself to embroidering small patches that will go into something larger, before I tackle something this large again.
The finished quilt is 100 4" hexies, each with quilting stitches 1/4 inch inside each edge. And speaking of embroidery, this quilt includes an embroidered tortoise:
The pattern for the tortoise is a stencil by Pepper Cory, available here.
And finally, something new for my playful pirate kids! In addition to quilts made from flags of famous pirates, I now offer tooth fairy pillows for your favourite pirate lass or lad! These are available for sale in my Etsy shop:
