Sew Cute Tuesday

Happy Valentine's Day and Sew Cute Tuesday! Like I mentioned in my Catching Up post, it has been a whirlwind past couple of weeks, and I need a huge cup of coffee or a nap! ๐Ÿ˜ Little Sam had his 4 month well check yesterday and he's in the 80th percentile for his weight and height!

I haven't done a ton of sewing recently, but I did finally mail my blocks to the January queen for the #rockinblockbee. The queen requested flying geese with bright colors and low volume, so I dug in my stash and found these pretties! I think my favorite is the butterfly print. 

Here are some of the pretty projects shared at the last Sew Cute Tuesday:

Cรฉline of Accroquilt made this awesome Star Wars quilt! Her grandson is a lucky boy! 

Micki of 2 Dogs Studios finished this beautiful quilt made from upcycled shirts! Love that the blocks were a leader/ender project. 

Anja Quilts created this super useful First Aid zipper pouch! I really need to make one of these since William is quite clumsy and also loves band-aids for even the tiniest of boo-boos. 

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 I can see what you're working on!

Sunday Stash

One of my final purchases before I cut myself off of fabric buying, was yardage of the Robert Kaufman Color of the Year, Kona Pink Flamingo + last year's color Highlight! I don't work with solids often, but I am a sucker for the color pink. My bedroom was painted almost this exact color when I was in high school!
Now I just need to find the perfect project to make. I love the two colors together, so I think whatever it is it'll involve both shades! Thank you Circa 15 Fabric Studio for being awesome!

Catching Up

Hello friends! I have been super MIA recently and I apologize. The past couple weeks have been so busy, and I have barely been able to keep my head above water between working, and being mommy & wifey. Wearing so many hats can be quite exhausting, especially with a 4 month old who seems to be always hungry, and a 5 year old who is scared to sleep in his own room. Needless to say mommy has been living on coffee and strategically hidden candy that the 5 year old can't find!
I'll be watching my newest Craftsy class while folding said humongous pile of laundry ๐Ÿ˜‰ *All new classes at Craftsy are currently only $20! I recently grabbed Christa Watson's new class, "The Quilter's Path: Plan It, Stitch It, Quilt It" and it is all about quilting on your domestic sewing machine. I've only made it through the beginning of the lessons, but I can already tell that I'm going to learn a ton from the class! I might finally branch out from basic meandering and straight line quilting.

I'll be back to my regularly scheduled posting starting on Sunday with #SundayStash. I'm back to no buying, but I have a couple pretties that came in on the tail end of my final purchases of the year. 

*I get a tiny kickback from any purchases made when you follow the links I have in this post :) hints the tiny wording lol
