Patchwork, Pyrex and My Next Project

Lately I have been loving all of the patchwork projects you can find in the online sewing world. My flickr favorites is filled with new images of quilts and smaller projects. I especially love the pouches that Ayumills of the Pink Penguin makes, so I decided to try my hand at one. I loooove my little pouch, especially since I used fabrics that I love, including some which I have been hoarding forever! I'm pretty sure after I made my first quilt that I said I would never make another, but I'm starting to think I could....or maybe I'll just keep making some small patchwork projects!

I had to show off the Pyrex that I scored last week. At some point I will photograph all of my pieces, but check out what I found at the thrift store....

I'll be using this pattern for my next project, it's McCalls 6074. I'm making the shorter version in a storm-blue jersey knit. It's all cut out and my serger is threaded and ready to go, hopefully I'll find some time this week to work on it, this seems like a super-quick and easy pattern, I'm praying it comes out good so I can make up a few of them! Have a great week and happy sewing :)
