Why we aren't making progress on the Lily

The state fair is coming soon, so that means I had to get my projects done if I wanted to enter anything in the fair. What's interesting about the Tanana Valley State Fair is that every year they have a new theme for it. Better yet, the themes are puns. I really like this year's theme, which is, "Salmonchanted Evening." Last year's theme was "The Age of Asparagus." 

I didn't enter anything that had to do with the theme last year, but I will this year. Here are some of the things I've decided to enter:

This pillow that I made is supposed to go with the fair theme. It's called "Salmonchanted Pillow."

This tunic-like shirt has a tie that ties in the back. My mom is thinking of making a dress for my niece out of the same pattern and fabric.


  1. Hannah has really become a good seamstress! She also has such a great eye for colors. Her sawtooth star pillow was her first attempt at piecing triangles. Her shirt involved facings and interfacing. I am so proud of my creative daughter!

  2. And I am proud of my creative and accomplished niece! Nice job on your pillow and shirt, Hannah. Sometimes it's nice to get sidetracked and get to engage in other creative projects. I love getting to see what you are working on.

    Love to you,
    Ayi Chris

  3. That is so awesome! I wish I could sew like that. You did an incredible job. I love the green tie on the shirt. It's just beautiful with the pattern.

  4. Hi Hannah! Your quilted pillow is so Professional looking and I am soooo impressed with your sewing skills! I love the way the shirt fits and it looks stylish as well as very comfortable. You are a good super-model too! Great work well- done, and I wish the all the best with your entries at " Salmonnchached Evening" That is just too cute!


  5. If you are sewing then I am definitely a fan of yours. The pillow looks great and would you believe am working on a top like that as well. Glad Ruth encourage me to stop by.
