I love to sew and I've usually got a project or two in the works! I'll share a few pieces I've made in the last 6 months.

These are some of the samples I've made for the quilt shop I work at.

This is a baby quilt I made for a friend here in Atlanta.

I was asked to test a quilt pattern for a cloth manufacturer. The quilt is hanging up in the quilt shop for the next few months!

My grandmother gave Damien and I this old wicker chair that she had gotten from my great grandma. A bit of the paint is chipping off and the seat cushion has been on there since my great grandma had it. I wanted to update it a bit so I started with recovering the seat cushion! I still need to touch up the paint and make some throw pillows for it, but that's in the works.

Happy 4th of July

This morning we celebrated by renting road bikes and taking a 16.5 mile ride on the Silver Comet Trail. This was the first time I'd been on a road bike and boy was it fun! We were flying down the trail. It was tiring but we had such a great time.

I even got to ride a bike made by my people. (For those who don't know, my maiden name is Bianco. Pretty close to Bianchi. Same country.)
