Switch in Progress

We're working on moving our blog this weekend...so we may experience some downtime and or bounced e-mails...hopefully everything will be in working order soon!

If our shop link is not working, visit us at: cloverandviolet.bigcartel.com

Thanks for your patience!

More Clothes Sewing

In light of my successful blouse making venture, I am going to sew myself some more clothes {hopefully I will get them done in a reasonable amount of time too!}.  I've stashed some fabric that I think will be perfect for a few new pieces:

Fabrics: Little Folk's Voile Coloring Garden by Anna Maria Horner, Flea Market Fancy Posy by Denyse Schmidt, Echo Moira by Lotta Jansdotter.

I also picked up some more patterns from Serendipity Studio because I was so impressed by the book that I figured they were a great place to start!

Patterns:  Fashion Formula Skirts, Diane Kimono Dress, The Bebe Dress.

A few of you have mentioned or e-mailed that you're interested in learning to sew, as it is a little different from quilting, and we've decided to give a few lessons {my mom is a very talented seamstress, and she is going to share her knowledge, tips, and tricks with us!}. 

So, please let us know what kind of things you'd like to learn: more about patterns? serging/finishing edges? gathering? pinning? marking?

Leave your questions below so that we can get to work on some great tutorials and posts started!

Oh, and just to leave you with a smile for the weekend, look who is getting so grown up:

A Cold and Some Bee Blocks

A cold has kept me down for the past week or so.  The kids got it and recovered quite quickly...so, imagine my dismay when I came down with the same thing and have been slow to mend!  I think it's all the busy-ness of being mama that has kept me under the weather!  But, I did manage to make and mail some bee blocks!

Stash Bee, August {I know, super late!} for Rachel, mammafairy sews.  The block is Starry Night by Faith of Fresh Lemons, which was my first real attempt at foundation paper piecing!  Good thing Faith has amazing directions!

Next up, Modern Stitching Bee, September for Chrissy of Sew Lux {my favorite fabric shop!}, the block is "Four Acres" from Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers.  It was a fun, easy block!

Okay, that's all for now, hopefully this cold will get better and I can get back to work.  Right now I think I need a cup of hot tea with honey some tea in a cup of honey, and to watch a Jane Austen movie on the couch...
