My Crafty Side

Yowza! Look what the the magic elves made last night while I was sleeping…

I’m only kidding. This girl made that last night! This project, I tell ya, has been a labor of love. From teaching myself how to sew, to umpteen broken needles to more umpteen nodded spools of thread, I finally got into a good rhythm with my sewing, and picked this puppy back up.

It’s the first of many of these to come, because for some reason, I inherited the “MUST HAVE ALL T-SHIRTS ON PLANET” gene, and I have about 100 more of these to cut, interface, sew together and preserve in t-shirt quilts. But, I really have a lot of fun putting this together. It’s by no means perfect, or beautiful, but I’m really loving it. And granted, it is only one unfinished side, of one quilt. But for me, it’s an accomplishment! This quilt will be junior high and freshmen year of high school. And I go all the way through my four years in a sorority, so I’ll be a quilt making machine all summer!

Any good sewing tips for a rookie?

Inspiration

I know, I know. I said I wasn’t coming back here until after Wednesday, but what would Finals week be without a little Pincrastination via Pinterest? I totally just made up that word…but it’s sooo true.

Anyhoos, hopefully within the next year Jason and I will be buying our first house, so I’ve started the manic obsession pastime of looking for color combos, decorations or inspirations for our imaginary house.

My room at my parents house is a deep blue, and I’ve always loved blue. Most recently, I’ve bought only two colors in shirts: blue and orange/coral. Same with dresses, the last three dresses I’ve bought have been some color combination of those two. I LOVE the contrast between teal and orange, and definitely want some room to be decorated like that.

So here’s a few Pins that I’m loving from my Blue Inspiration board:
