Fun with sewing and fun with Fetzer


Just thought I'd show you my finished book cover.  My co-worker saw another cover I made for a paper back book and ask if I could make one for her Bible.  
Her Birthday was yesterday.  I'm a little late, but I hope she likes it. 



Humm...it fits my Bible too.  Maybe she won't like it. :-) 


I showed you some close ups of another project I was working on a few posts back. 
This is the little pillow/pincushion I made. 
I've been inspired by some lovely things made by my friend Diane Knott, and her daughter, Holly.
You can check out their Etsy shop, HERE

Finally, I thought I'd show you some shots of my boy, Fetzer.  Sometimes he just loves to act goofy and play! 




Well, now you can see what Fetzer has been up to. 
I've been having fun playing more tennis!
What are you doing for fun? 

It's almost the weekend!

Becca - The book cover is so beautiful. I love the colors. I made book covers for each of my kids' baby books, so I know the work involved. I had such a hard time getting them to fit the photo books, but finally did it!!

Love the kitty :-)

I don't think you will get to keep that book cover, I'm sure she will like it. I love the little pincushion you made. And kitty playing makes me smile.

Ummmm, I've been cleaning the house for fun - no...... wait.....blogging, yeah, yeah - I've been blogging for fun!

Hey, I like this bible cover - I really do! I love your style and your textures - that pillow. When I say "love", you know, when I saw them, I though, "ooooooo! I want one!" btw, wait till you see my bible - it could have used a cover but, back in the day, there were only big poofy quilted ones with lace and eyelet - cute enough but not for me, I guess.

I'm twaddling on - sorry!

Love, Katy

Hi Becca!

I am so impressed with your sewing abilities. That book cover is lovely!
The pillow is beautiful!!! I love the old retro looking material you used. It reminds me of those old Sailor valentine pillows. Love it!
Your cat is darling and you managed to get incredible shots of him!! Cats are the BEST!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Beautiful cover Becca! Your sewing/quilting is lovely and the fabric is very nice! And Fetzer is a cutie too - is he named after the wine??? Diane is inspiring me these days as well. I love all the pincushions and yours with the bright colours is really snappy - love it! You have inspired me to go rooting for some bright colours and brighten things up around here as we are having such a dreary Fall; rain, rain and more rain - ugh!!
