Sew Retro Kitchen .... is Sew Fun !
Today, I got to sew and have some fun in my sunroom. Ahh... moments of sunshine, stitches and bliss.
Earlier this year, Kristy designed these delicious blocks, and they are currently available in her Craftsy store.

I had such fun picking out fabric for this new block.
I wanted to make the top -half background look like "wallpaper", and then I only had to pull out my turquoise and red fabrics.

I just loved making this block! It is fun to make, and you could split up the rolling pin from the mixing bowl, for separate projects! Look for it soon on Kristy's blog. And check out her other patterns, too!
Fabrics used: Michael Miller : Mini Mike Dot -N-Square
Mini Mike Dot Duo Red
Mini Mike Tiny Gingham Cherry

I will be making March's And Sew On BoM block next week.....
Second Project: A Bow Clutch purse for my daughter
When my daughter , "C", was home over Christmas, she requested that I make a Bow Clutch bag for her. She saw the bow clutch purse that I made in June.

My daughter wanted her bow clutch to be in rust colors and if possible, in a houndstooth print. I said, " I'll do what I can..." I then looked around on the internet, and finally found these rust fabrics at Fabric.com ! Whew!!
