Charming Hearts Wall Hanging, I love using Charm Packs

This weeks sewing was pretty much limited to working on some alterations, but I did manage to squeeze in one quilting project.  I used one of my remaining Kiss, Kiss charm packs to make this Charming Hearts wall hanging

While I was sewing on the binding I thought I would (finally) try making a video of how I machine sew the binding.  It took a few tries, but I finally got something I was fairly happy with and posted it on Instagram.  It helped that I didn't show myself or talk!  It feels kind of odd to put yourself out there like that, but I am making baby steps in this area.  Anyway, here is the video!

Anyway, I really want to get more quilting in this week, so I suppose it is time to get out my planner and attempt to schedule more time in my days for that.

I got some great news this week - I will be staying on as an Island Batik Ambassador for 2017!  I'm looking forward to the arrival of a new box of fabric soon, along with some new challenges.  I have two quilts that will be in their Spring Summer Catalog along with my patterns!  Woohoo!  I can't wait to show those to you.  I am working on submissions to a couple of different magazines as well.  I really enjoy designing, so am excited to commit to that and work on getting my head full of ideas out and actually see them becoming lovely quilts.

Let me know what you think of my video - maybe next time I will get brave and talk!
