The Week in Pictures


I’ve been busy sewing for Quilt Market, which takes place at the end of October, so I don’t have too much to show you now. But here are a few photos that I posted on Instagram in the last week. Above you can see a big stack of my Garden collection and a peek at what I’m sewing for my booth.

I also worked with my third grader’s Brownie troop on their scarecrow to display at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, which was such a fun project. The girls used Mod Podge to paste photos of themselves to a plastic pumpkin head, then I added (many) layers of polyurethane to make it waterproof. The girls made fake badges, which we laminated and sewed onto a vest. The girls wrapped dowel rods in yarn to create colorful arms, then we added flowers growing out of the concrete base and “planted” the scarecrow in a terracotta pot. I hope it will survive a month outdoors!
