Other sewing

I feel like I only blog about bee blocks and Farmer's Wife sewing now.  But, I have been up to other kinds of trouble with Margene.

This reversible bucket hat comes from the book, Oliver + S Little Things to Sew by Liesel Gibson.  Henry loves the bug fabric and I used Carolina Chambray for the other side.


I have also been working on a picnic quilt made with vintage sheets, some solids and some modern fabrics.  It looks like bright summer sherbet to me.

Now I just have to get back to bee blocks and my Farmer's Wife.
I'm not kidding.
 I'm on a sewing meetup visit with Melissa and those are the only projects I brought along with me. :)

Oh my gosh, those hats are soooo cute! Your quilt looks very summery, great colors :-). Have a good weekend!

I have to admit that I feel the same way, about what I've been blogging. On the other hand, I'm so close to the end of the Farmer's Wife blocks, I can't bring myself to stop!

Totally love the picnic quilt! It's perfect for the season.

I love that pattern - I made about 5 bucket hats last year, and if the sun ever comes out for long enough to need them, I'll make another couple this year too! Yours looks like a magazine sample, it's so neat!

Henry's hat is adorable and I LOVE the picnic quilt! I only wish I was that lucky in my vintage sheet searches.

The bucket hat came out beautifully and that quilt top does indeed remind me of delightful sherbet!

p.s. do you want a vintage sheet for the back, or other project? I got one for a friend, but she said she already had it. And, I don't collect vintage sheets and don't need another thing to collect? Anyway, yours for free if you like. Pic in my photostream.
