Sew Cute Tuesday

It's time for another Sew Cute Tuesday! I hope everyone here in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. My brother is visiting from Pennsylvania, so we're spending the week in Austin with my parents. It has been fun spending time with everyone, and I brought all of my cross-stitch WIPs to work on while away from my sewing machine!




I did a small amount of Black Friday/Small Business Saturday shopping to support some local shops in my area. I picked up fabric to make a quilt for my husband, he's a computer engineer so the circuit board fabric is perfect! And I also snagged some aida and linen fabric for a few more cross-stitch projects I want to do.

Here are a few of the great projects shared last week: 

Johanna from Stuff I Made Last Week made this awesome pillow with Tula Pink fabrics! I love how she quilted it!

Celine from Espritpatch finished this super cute quilt top! I love the fair isle theme.

Last but not least is this awesome triangle quilt by Daniela of block M quilts! The pop of orange combined with the purple is so cool!

Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope that your day is filled with turkey and all the wonderful pies you can imagine! My favorite is pumpkin, followed closely by apple. 

Today, and everyday, I am thankful for my wonderful husband, our two perfect little boys, my amazing Aurifil work family, and of course coffee & sewing. This past year has been filled with unexpected but wonderful changes, and I feel so blessed.

Oh Hey It's Sew Cute Tuesday

I promise one of these days I'm going to post Sew Cute Tuesday at a normal time of day 😉 This past week has been the most relaxing yet because Sam is sleeping for 4 hours at a time! It's a tiny victory that has actually allowed me enough time to do some sewing.


I've been working on my #100days100blocks project again and I am getting so excited about being almost done with all 100 blocks.

Here are a few of the awesome projects shared last week: 

Cynthia of Quilting is More Fun than Housework is making this courthouse steps project out of solids and it is looking wonderful!  

Patty of Elm Street Quilts shared a tutorial for this binding kit, and it looks like a super handy bag to have when binding on the go. 

Last but not least, DonnaleeQ shared her completed Craftsy Block of the Month quilt and it is beautiful!

Now it is time to link up your finishes or works in progress from the previous week! You can link up directly from Instagram as well - be sure to tag #SewCuteTuesday and @youngtexanmama on IG so we can see what you're working on!
