DGS June

Stitch that Stash! blocks.

Simplicity 1616
This is a grey knit, fold-over waist skirt.  It's a little body hugging at this size.  I guess I need the next size up in order for it to be comfortable like it's supposed to be.  I have a friend that it should fit well though, so not all is lost!

I also made Simplicity 1693, which you can see on Instagram (@kristananne).  I will post about it here when I take better photos.

Pile of fabric for garment sewing (it seems I have become obsessed!).  Some for me, some for my boy.

A little car organizer in the works.  Just a little hanging pouch to hold my phone and get it out of the cup holder so I have a place to put my iced tea!  Pattern is Simplicity 2553.

I haven't touched the quilts I was working on.  I had planned on quilting and binding my Marcelle Medallion quilt this week, but I forgot to buy more spray baste.  I've lost momentum on the Ohio Star quilt and the Inside Out quilt, but I'm sure I'll pick them up soon.
