A Sewing Day, and maybe a little jewelry

I have several sewing projects I need to work on. A quilt that has been waiting patiently on my little long arm for weeks. The all important 8th birthday shirt to make for Ian's upcoming birthday. It's really hard to think he will be 8 very soon. My sister brought me this cute Avenger fabric and his Hulk green t shirt. It's always fun to deliver these shirts to Ian he's always so excited and appreciative. 


 This has been on my machine for too long and I need to start this today.
This is for a friend and her mom made the top years ago. 
Her mom was an avid seamstress and made the girls clothes. 
This quilt of many colors was made from the scraps.


 Over on the bench is a free form wire cuff I started last night and I'm eager to get back to. I've been really into using this black wire lately with copper. The black wire is steel and really good for using as a foundation to wrap. There is a lot more to do on this cuff, but I enjoy this type of wire work. 
This will have a chain and toggle closure so it can be adjusted to fit. 

Last week I took a selection of jewelry to a local shop to sell there. 
This is the cutest shop too, she has her Easter stuff out
and it's just too darn cute in there. 

Quite a few of my friends are into racing and I'm clueless about the majority of sports stuff. I found it quite funny that my sister's new kitten is watching the races. Angel said she sat there for almost 30 min! My dogs never paid any attention to the TV unless they heard other dogs barking on there then they would run to the front door thinking the intruder dogs were on the front porch. They were cute but not real bright.

I am curious about your "quilter" Is it a regular long arm or a sit down machine?
