We’re on a real sugar high over here in Dock land!
Celebrated a few birthdays last night at the best kind of crazy family party. Cake? Check. Pinata? Check. Late summer backyard shenanigans? Check.
I’ve got some sweet new patterns out as well! First, a baby quilt called “Charmed” that’s just right for 2 charm packs. There are kits available over at Craftsy right now, but I’ll also be offering this pattern by itself in my own shop soon.
Craftsy also released my fun little reversible skirt pattern not too long ago, and was hoping to post a link to these kits as well, but they sold out before I even got a chance to! Eek! No worries- if you’re interested in this pattern, I’ll be offering it in my shop at some point in the future as well, so stay tuned.
The size and length are totally customizable, so we went with the long-ish swishy length that my big girl requested. :) She wore it to kindergarten this week (with a pink tie-dyed t-shirt, no less), and the word on the street is it was an eye catcher!
And I can’t forget our monthly sweet- of the Sugar Block variety! This month we’re stitching up a fun take on the classic granny square type block that has grown so popular in the modern quilt community. I was playing around with having some of the side-by-side squares in the same color (as usually I would do this block in color “layers” like a real crocheted granny square)…the first thing Mr. Dock said was “Looks like a propeller.” Hmm. I suppose it does. Airplanes + a dash of the the classiest classic of all time, Frank Sinatra, and I think we’ve got a block- “Come Fly With Me.”
And of course a Sugar Block isn’t a Sugar Block without a sweet treat by it’s side. Cookies made from devils food cake mix? Yes please!
Ahhh! And it’s only the 1st! This month is off to a great start. Wishing you a sweet one as well, my friends.
