Busy Busy!

When did it get to be October already?! Lots of crafty projects have been under way since then. First there was Hannah's Halloween costume... she found some green fabric with black sparkly velvet spiders that she couldn't live without, so she's going to be a spider fairy. Here's what we've got:

I also made a green and black tutu, but apparently I didn't take pictures of that yet. Then we had an order for a yellow and black baby quilt for a former co-worker's new baby. I'm so happy with the way the quilt turned out - I just love the colors together! The blocks are a mix of cotton, flannel, linen, and corduroy, and the back is yellow minky.

And yesterday Hannah and I made this wreath:

I was inspired by a wreath in the Williams Sonoma catalog that was $90 - definitely not something we could afford right now! So we made a trip to Michael's, where all of their fall floral decor was 50% off and whipped up this baby! Again, pretty happy with the way it turned out! Finally, I started a quilt for Hannah for her birthday which is coming up at the end of the month. As usual, I had WAY more help than was really necessary while I was laying out the blocks! Monkay has to get her two cents in wherever she can...
This is similar to a quilt I have listed in my Etsy shop, but I chose a few different fabrics for this one, as well as special butterfly fabric for the back. I haven't gotten any sewing done on this one yet; it's sitting in pieces on my dining room table. I have several items to add to my shop, so hopefully I can get to that before the weekend's over.
