Here is one of SIX placemats that I made for a co-worker's upcoming wedding.
Here is a commission quilt from a co-worker of mine. She was all gung-ho about learning to quilt and when push came to shove, she just didn't have time so she brought me her fabric and said - Can you make this into a quilt? Of course I said SURE! Well, about 4 weeks later, this is how it turned out. I used the Hourglass pattern from Allison over at Cluck Cluck Sew. I just love that girl! Here patterns are super simple to understand and her work is truly amazing! This was such a simple pattern but turned out looking quite complex.

We also managed to enjoy one last dip in the pool as well as some much needed cooler weather yesterday (60's- 80's!!). Haven't seen temps like that in a LONG time. Yesterday the kids and I had a great time at the park playing in the sand.

Then we had the family over and cooked some s'mores! YUM!
Then on her actual birthday night we took her to Medieval Times where she and Malek both got their faces painted.
This one really has nothing to do with Emma's birthday celebration, but I thought it was such a funny picture of Malek showing us his muscles. Something about the faux-hawk that brought out the tough guy in him!
Then Miss Emma had a slumber party with some of her best friends from school. Let's just say - 4 ten year olds and then Malek up in the middle of it all - I'm worn out! We swam, ate too much, watched movies and overall had a great time.
My living room was turned into a slumber party oasis! And of course you see the little mister right up in the middle AGAIN!
Bravely - my mom even joined in on all the fun.
So overall it's been a busy couple of weeks. Not a whole lot of sewing going on, with the exception of Emma's junk food quilt, but did manage to make a few more custom steering wheel covers for some folks here at work. Oh and some super cute Lobster themed placemates and matching coasters. I'll blog those in a separate post, because I'm sure I've overloaded you all on the pictures with this post!

Thanks so much!! Love the colors and look at the quilting - awesome!
And this is the one that I made for Megan! Sweet and simple. She said she loved it - it was hard parting with those colorful scraps though.
Still working on the Lobster placemats and coasters. Hope to finish those up this weekend so I can post a couple of pics. I've also got a couple more special orders for my steering wheel covers! Check them out here in my etsy shop - I do special orders too! Just convo me!

Also on a sad note, my friend whom I made the Mary Engelbreit FRIENDS quilt for on this post, passed away on June 1st after the bravest fight battling a brain tumor. We'll miss you so much Nancy!!
