mario1The Mario quilt is finally done after a serious case of slacking!
I’m very pleased with how it turned out and so is my friend :)
I just need to wash it and give him the quilt.

My aunt offered me a spot at her craft table if I wanted to sell some baby quilts. I think I’m going to do that, I just need to make sure not to slack LOL. But it doesn’t really matter for those ones because there’s no deadline.  I was thinking of doing pinwheels, they seem simple enough. I hope.

If anyone wants the pattern for the Mario quilt, leave a comment!

Thanks for reading so far,

Another Mario update

Hey there, just another quick update.

I’ve got the front of the binding attached after fussing with it and getting frustrated (I so know what I want for Christmas this year—a walking foot) and I just need to attach it to the back by hand.

I’m thinking of just doing that part tomorrow. It’s raining today and I just feel like staying in bed surfing the net. Might work on it later when the boyfriend comes home.

Just a quick little update.

I've got most of the blanket quilted, there's just a little bit left to do and then I have to add the border!
I'm excited! :D

Got the top done!  Woohoo! I  was kinda just playing around today and spaced the day out instead of sitting down and sewing for a straight 5 hours or more.  I don't have the backing fabric yet but I'm thinking of just using the same sky blue that's on the front..

I think it would look pretty good.  I really want to make one for myself now haha.

Sorry for the poor lighting and angle.  I took the photo around 6:45pm and the sunlight's not shining through the living room window anymore.  I had to stand on the couch to take photo with my iphone.

I'm pretty happy with how the quilt turned out.  There are a few spots where the blocks don't line up exactly, but I'm not perfect (and no one is!) and I'm still happy with it.

I so want to make one for myself now LOL!  But I'm thinking of maybe doing a True Blood themed quilt after I finish the fighter quilt.

Mario Quilt

So this is the progress of the Mario quilt so far:
I'm pretty excited. I think I will get it done by July 24th but still no guarantees.
You can tell where I haven't ironed yet haha.  But I'm getting an ironing board this weekend! I have to get a cover for it though, I don't really have time to make one yet.

I recently painted my Dollfie Dream head again...
I like it better than the old faceup but I'm still not happy with the eyes :/
I like the blushing a lot better this time around though.

<-- Old faceup

She's a DDH03 on a DDDY body :)
Yes she has a wig but it's not very good quality so I need to order a new one soon.

It's A Me, Mario!

Well, not really.

But I AM starting a raccoon Mario for a friend's son's birthday gift. Gotta be done by July 24th so I better get to it lol

Shouldn't be too hard it's all squares and I'm gonna sew like a mad woman.

Update when I can! :)

Well I never got very far in the 8bit quilt seeing as my mother's sewing machine died, but I bought my own recently and I've made quite a bit of progress.

I'm going to try and keep the blog updated for my own personal sake.

Anyway, I've been growing a balcony garden as well, but I think I planted too much in the container...
Oh well everything seems to be doing well and they're all healthy.

If you're wondering how I water them, well, it's a "self-watering" container. I followed a quick guide here and made my own. There's a pipe hiding behind the tomato plants that goes into a reservoir.

Ciao for now~Miranda

I've been working on that final fantasy quilt. I've got 7 rows done, it's just going to be an 8-bit fighter. I know, really simple but I tend to like simple :)
