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.

<--New faceup

<-- 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
