It's a bird, It's a plane, no it's "man"

I made my youngest a masks a couple weeks ago, he loves to put it on and says "me Man". So yesterday I decided to make him a reversible cape. I looked around a pinterest for ideas. And made "man" a cape.

I've also decided to restart my pinterest 101 challenge since I have over 5000 pins. So this will be #1.

I got my ribbon and trims all sorted by color!

This should help me when I need a certain color for a project, whether it be for scrapbooking or sewing.

I got to thinking that I didn't finish a single sewing project last month. I spent a lot of time on a couple of my bigger quilts. Than I realized I had made 2 pillowcases.

Getting there..

I spent the weekend, (between chasing kids) sewing the shadow setting to My Splendid Sampler Quilt.

I have around 76 blocks completed. I have plans to do some more. I'm so excited to see this quilt finally starting to take shape!
