Sewing with Mom

So I thought I would share with you some pics of what I was working on with my mom during my parents visit to see me.

My mom's next great quilt is one for her church in Espanola, Ontario.  Here is some fabric she bought for the quilt. The Church group is called "The Lighthouse" and she plans to appliqué a lighthouse with the water, sky etc. She embroidered a lot of panels that will be blocks in the quilt. Here are some of her ideas and fabrics:

She is going to use the rocks as part of the appliquéd lighthouse and fussy cut the rocks for the scene.

Remember my faux suede projects? Well I had a lot of fabric left over and my mom has never used it before so she made my niece a jacket, scarf and hat:


I also finished our jeans and with the whole teal theme we had going on we did a mani/pedi in such colors!

I'd say we got a lot of sewing done in a short amount of time. What do you think?
