Blogging is Difficult

Apparently, blogging is hard to do…or it seems that way since I never blog!

I’ve been neglecting my blog but working on my Etsy shop. I now have over 100 sales and almost 400 items in my shop! I should have 400 (at least) but there are some items I haven’t even had time to list! Crazy!

Here is some eye candy to show off some things that I have done recently. I just finished my bee blocks for the 4 x 5 Bee:

It was a lot of fun but I’m going to sit out next quarter. I still have to finish my 3 x 6 blocks this week and catch up on some other bee blocks.

I can finally show off the Map of Canada pillow I made for Sylvia for the Make Mine Modern Swap (please excuse the lame iPhone photos, I was too lazy to use my camera):

I saw this awesome map idea in Sylvia’s mosaic and I thought, “OH! I can do that! Canada will be easy!” So, I had my boyfriend help me make applique templates for all the provinces. I figured there’s like a handful compared to all the states we have. Piece of cake, right? NO! They have about 1000 islands up there! Anyway, I didn’t add every single island. I used a different color for each province and free motioned around them to keep them from coming off in the wash (I used Wonder Under to stick them on). I had to learn how to free motion for this project but I think it turned out all right!

Okay, that’s all for now. I should try to sleep…
I’m linking up with Canoe Ridge Creations for Sew Modern Monday 🙂

    Wow, love the map of Canada on the pillow, I spyed it right away on Modern Monday. We live in Nova Scotia, so my girls were happy to see us on the map!

    I know I’ve seen it before, but that pillow is just sweet. 🙂 I’m sure the islands were a real pain!

    I squinted at the thumbnail at Canoe Ridge Creations and said to myself…That looks like Canada! Could it be? And sure enough it was. Brilliant!

    The map was certainly very ambitious. Congratulations.
