Purses and more purses

Yes, these are more purses.   I can't seem to stop making them.   If you are a dog lover, this little cutie is for you.

I am definitely a dog lover so I created three of these.  Want one?  Let me know.   $15 each.

Here is the next one.  I found this cute fabric at Hobby Lobby in  a fat quarter pack.   This screams my DIL's name so to her it will go this Christmas.

This next one is available if you are interested.

Want something a little more feminine?   How about this cute floral print?

And because this fabric was just too cute for the babies, I created this one for the music lover!

All purses are $15.   Let me know if you want one.  Also, if you have a request, let me know and I will see what I can do.    hugs

It's All About the Quilts

Did I ever mention that I have a lot of strip sets?   Jelly rolls?   Whatever name they go by, I have em.   And alot of them.   Last time I counted, and that was months ago, I had 189 sets/rolls.   Yes, it is an addiction.  So I've decided to try to reduce the number and get some quilts made from these for the nursing homes.  I'm going to do at least one a month.   The above picture is the one I made for the month of April.   And it is quilted and bound and ready to go.

Next I quilted a top for my friend Peggy.   She is not allowing herself to buy any fabric, but to only use what she has on hand.   This quilt is really pretty, don't you think?   All from scraps.

My daughter has a friend who is expecting triplets.  She was told there were two girls and a boy and she wanted to go with a rock and roll theme.   I went on line and found the cutest fabric here.  It came in both blue and pink so I placed my order.  The very next day Brooke called my daughter and said, "wait - they found it's two girls and one boy!"  Wow, I called equilter and they had not yet shipped my order so I was able to get it changed.   These are the quilts we gave to her.

I embroidered their initials into the corner squares.  You know, they must know which one is for which one!
The next photos, show the backs of the quilts.

 I pieced in strips of the colors on the front.   They turned out really cute and Brooke loves them.

Ok, that's it for now.   Off to quilt some more!

More projects and pictures

I'm now on to the next projects completed.   I do LOVE making these little purses!

This one I made for a friend of mine.  She loves green and I was playing around with some strips of fabric I had saved and came up with this.   Cute, huh?  I'm not sure I like the shape so I've since, altered the pattern a bit.

I also got to quilt a top for a friend of mine.   She did a great job piecing this beauty.   And the colors are just gorgeous!

My youngest grandson was baptized and this is a picture of the family.
The next one has my mom and my sister in it.  Wow, four generations!
There is more to come later!

Ages and ages!

I have no real excuse for not posting except a lack of time.   My "free" time has been spent trying to complete projects, which I have been doing.   I'm going to post some now, hopefully the older ones first and then try to post again tomorrow with some new pictures/projects!

Here we go......

My sister called and said "you know, little purses are a big seller on etsy right now.  Why don't you make some?"   So, blue being my favorite color, became this little gem.   It is available for $15.  Just let me know.

While I work away in my studio, my girls wait patiently outside the gate!
Next up was a baby quilt for a couple at church, good friends with my youngest daughter.   The colors they choose ended up perfectly in this panel I had and I love how it turned out.

And lastly, my mom crocheted these embroidered coasters I made.   They are also available for $10.

I have a bunch more to share later.   Thanks for stopping by.
