Sewing ♥ Love!

It's my stop on the "She Who Sews" Blog Hop today!
A big thank you to Madame Samm @ SewWeQuilt for rounding up bundles of prizes to giveaway for this hop featuring "Handmaids" by J. Wecker Frisch.  How to win?  Comment and participate! Carla @ Creatin'intheSticks has organized not only this hop, but a Door Stop hop on alternate days!  THANKS, gals!

So... after my previous post, you would think that I don't hang out in the sewing room much.  But I do. And my dear husband brought home a new space heater last night, the darling man.  So now I can spend even more time down there.  Of course, I have a quilt studio upstairs too, which is where my longarm machine, Ol' Betsy lives.  And I'm commandeering the spare bedroom to display my sew-y goodness today.  All part of my evil plan to take over the house...  Ü

Now on to the projects!


I love this line of fabric.  It's perfect to make more of my Snippets for the Sewing Room!  It reminds me of the Victorian age, Gibson Girls, Mary Poppins, and a little Steam Punk (my daughter likes that - I had to google it!).  

I remembered a little boot similar to this that hung in my Grandmother's back bedroom.  I think it was her mother's, whose name was Mary Malinda.  I've always wanted to make one. 

Mary's Boot Pincushion  << see new pattern.

 Dishtowel Apron  << see pattern.  Top hats and mustaches seem to suit the fabric, too!

A little Sewing Kit: <<see tutorial.

 Oh, look!  A detachable Needlenook! <<see tutorial

Holds all kinds of stuff!

Mustache mints!  I can't tell you how long I have held on to these for the perfect moment!!  ♥♥

Cut & Press Booklet:  << see tutorial


And a Memory Board: << see tutorial.

My sewing room buddies... 16 years ago! ♥♥♥

So... I'm also working on a couple of quilts.  This was an International Round Robin and just seems to go with the whole Victorian/red/black decor!  I am trying to decide if I use blocks from Handmaids to grow this quilt, or just finish it as is.  
Meanwhile... let's take a look at my UFO to Go portable design wall and see what's happening...


I just can't seem to get enough of this fun fabric!  And, can you tell, I like RED?  ♥♥
Free tutorials and patterns are now available for these projects and many others on my Snippets page.  I'd love for you to follow or subscribe so you don't miss out!

Be sure to visit all my other sewing sisters on today's hop ~ Love these gals!

>> Deonn @ Quiltscapes <<

Meanwhile - Win your own panel plus a few odd fat quarters (mustaches, scissors, etc) and other goodies by leaving a comment.  I'll announce a winner on Feb 8th after the hop.  Can you guess what's inside the hat box?

  1. I really like this line.....I think I would make a wall hanging for my quilt room. I actually don't have anything quilty on the walls yet and so this would be perfect. Um.....no idea what is in the hat box but it has got to be something red for sure :) Thanks

  11. You are one creative, talented woman. I love all the projects and the fabric is too cute for words. I can't hazard a guess as to what is in the hat box... common sense says a hat but I doubt if that is the case.

    Thanks for sharing and I'll be back for your tut's.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow-what a great selection of projects. So many things to love. I have to have a space heater in my sewing space too. I used it more this year than any so far.

  15. Omg I LOVE that panel. If I had it I would probably just admire it forever till I got gumption to use it. It's so perfect and right up my alley. Love your projects!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Deonn, you knock it out of the park. I'm a red kind of girl, too. Love that little sewing kit. I think that particular block with the girl in the top hat is my favorite of all the fabric.
    Thanks for hopping you did a great job.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Great projects, love the mustaches with the apron. The memory board is super cute. I'd guess fat quarters are in that red box. Great space to store fabric. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow! This fabulous fabric certainly ispired you!! I love all of your projects. The detachable needle keep is a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow!!! I love them all. What is in that hatbox maybe scraps of fabric that you are going to use for the next project!!!! I cant wait for the tutorials. Thanks for sharing .

    ReplyDelete
  20. Just love everything as usual! The cut and press booklet is my favorite, followed by the UFO wall to go! Brilliant ideas both!

    ReplyDelete
  21. You "WOW"ed me with all your projects!
    I'm guessing thread is in the hat box? (I'm assuming it's not a hat!)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love this line very steam punk! In the hat box well if an empty box was in my sewing room it would be full of scraps!

    ReplyDelete
  23. All of your projects are wonderful--so creative! If I had a hat box in my sewing room, it would be full of scraps--or maybe the selvages I am collecting. Thanks for your inspiration and for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You have been one busy sewing lady. I have 2 hatboxes in my sewing area, one has patterns in and the other has scraps in it. Thanks for a fin giveaway too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow! So many wonderful projects and lots of inspiration. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  26. You are too too clever! I love your sewing case and all its tidbits! And the boot pin cushion is fabulous! All your projects are fabulous actually!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow so many projects by everyone! Love what you made.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Deonn, I am having a hard time deciding which project is my favorite because they are all fantastic! I do keep going back to that sewing kit... I love how the thread is on a line and you can scrunch in the edges like that! I just may have to make one of those! Cute, cute, cute!

    What is in the hatbox? hmmmm... My guess is you are that mysterious customer of mine who buys me out of pearl cotton number 127 every time I restock... it is a beautiful dark purple. She says she has 3 hat boxes full of it now. Open up that hat box and let me see if you are her. lol

    ReplyDelete
  29. So many wonderful projects! The sewing kit is my favorite :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, Deonn, you never cease to amaze me with your talent! I love, love, love all these little sewing accessories and could use them all. That UFO To Go is a great idea! That shoe must have been a popular item in the "olden days" because my mom and grandmother each had one. Hmmm...what's in the hatbox. Photos of all your awesome projects? Spools of thread?

    ReplyDelete

    Happy Friday!

  42. They are all just so wonderful! I can decide which one I like more. The pressing book looks super handy and the little red quilt is adorable. I think that red hat box is filled with the trims you use like ric rac and such.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Great projects, Deonn. I really love all of them. Everything looks sooo pretty. My favorite is the boot pincushion. I would love to make one of these for my sewing room. Thank you for sharing today. (My guess as to what is in the hatbox---favorite sewing items as well as lots of fabric scraps. Thank you for the giveaway.

  45. Wow you are one talented lady! I love red also so I am just naturally drawn to you work. I am definitely going to follow you so that I can see the tutorials on your great projects. I bet you have sewing supplies like ribbons or trims or maybe even buttons stored in that beautiful hat box.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love your projects, especially the boot pin cushion and the sewing kit. I bet there's the makings for a cover in that hat box for that cute little red sewing machine.

    ReplyDelete
  47. You have so many wonderful projects. I really like the cut and press booklet. i was thinking of cutting up an old and partly worn cutting board and doing something like that. did you have a pattern or just made it up yourself. I really enjoyed seeing all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Your projects all look great! I especially like the boot, the sewing kit and the press and cut book. I have a little cutting mat like that too.

    ReplyDelete
  49. You've sure been busy! Great projects! :)

  50. Great projects! I love the Moustache mints!!
    Do you store your hand sewing supplies in the hat box??

    ReplyDelete
  53. My guess would be....a hat? LOL! Love your items!

    ReplyDelete
  54. SO impressive. REALLY. I don't know which I like best. I am quite taken with the boot pincushion. The portable sewing kit is perfect for applique class and the little cut and press booklet would slip right into my applique bag, too. Then, everything else! Did you spend every waking hour doing all these things? WOW.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Wow busy girl! I love everything!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love all your projects.Hard to choose only one favorite!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. OMG They are all so adorable. I think I need to make a sewing kit for when I go to my meetings. That would come is sooo handy. The apron, so cute! Thank you for sharing them all with us.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Deon, your projects were lovely and gave me some great ideas. I did not order my fabric in time to make anything from She Who Sews fabric but I now have it and will be copying some of your projects. That cutting board cover is the best as is that cute little sewing kit with all the little attachments. And Oh, the mustache mints are off the chart in Cute factor. I just loved everything!! Great Job!!
    Hugs

  59. Oh my,such adorableness (is that a word?)! I love each and every project. I'm thinking the cut and press mat is my favorite. Oh wait...the boot pincushion is too cute, too.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Oh my goodness, how prolific your are! And creative! I love everything you made, especially the pincushion (I love Steampunk) and the sewing kit (how cute!) and the cut and press booklet (We all need one of those!) and the memory board (what a great way to showcase the fabric!) and etc. I love your sense of humor too - I enjoyed the post about your sewing room. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do next! I'm guessing the hat box has fabric in it. Or perhaps your secret stash of mustache mints.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I love all of your projects especially the boot. You are such a creative lady and all your work is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Well, I've got in mind a HAT just like the one worn by the handmaid on the front of your sewing kit. Just look at the marvelous style, the button cards, the pincushion, etc. Your are one of the most delightful, creative artist/quilter I know and you could make one as marvelous or better. Your snippets are the best; I'd love to have all of the projects. Deonn, you rock, baby...or is that you steam punk rock?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  78. I'm back with just another question for you. I'm looking for a tut for the Cut & Press booklet. I didn't see one on your website - did I overlook it or perhaps it's not a tut. I love that it's in a booklet form; I can see so many applications for it's use. Thanks for your help.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Red is my favorite color, too. What great projects you came up with. The sewing machine in the center of your red quilt, I made 7 of those blocks this past month. Love that cute, red Featherweight, too!

    ReplyDelete
