Pincushion and notion caddy for the couch!

Finished my caddy for the couch!  I used to have a end table by the couch but we moved furniture and I don't have one right now - so I made this to hold my scissors and such.

And I used snaps instead of Velcro!

Fun Tea "Bags"

Check out the cute tea wallets I made!   And the best part are the wonderful snaps some told me about!  So much nicer than Velcro!  Snaps from Babyville!

Mixing It Up!!

I've been so bad at posting lately.  Just wanted to let everyone know I"m alive and well.  Just busy!  But I did just finish this Mix it Up quilt top at my Jan retreat!  Isn't it great!  I love it so much!  I can't wait until it is quilted!  I also made just for fun these cute little bags!

And last but not least I'm finally making my sewing machine quilt from a panel I got for a gift a few years ago.

Sorry for the 2 pics sideways - I can't get them to go correctly today!  Oh well!

A few more Christmas Gifts almost done!

On top of a bunch of car garbage bags (I had to make 28 of them), I've been working on this for my great niece for Christmas.  Unfortunately I didn't get it quilted, but I"ll get that done right after christmas.  First is her twin size quilt.
And then I made a travel size pillow, and regular pillow case for her
Along with a small quilt, pillow and throw pillow for her American Girl Doll

I hope she likes them!!!

I"ve done a few things

I forgot how much time doing homework and studying for tests is when you got so school!  I"m telling you - doing this homework for my class is sucking my sewing time away from me!  But I am enjoying the class and learning lots.

I have found time to do a few things.  One of the things I finished recently was a little table runner for a little friend of mine out east.  She asked if I could make a dresser scarf for her dresser.  She has the cutest prettiest hot pink dresser in her room.  But she was sad because Grandma stayed in her room one visit and spilled something on the top that left some ugly marks on the pretty pink.  So she wanted to cover it up.  So I made the above table runner for her.  I washed it up today and tomorrow it will be flying its way to its new home!  I used all I had left of scraps from a quilt I made her a few years ago.  It will be wonderful on that hot pink dresser - don't you think!?

I also managed to finish a quick quilt for my youngest daughter who is graduating from college this coming spring. She already got her Christmas Present for this year - a Sea Kayak.  She wanted one this last summer as she was working for a Kayak Outfitter on Lake Superior and has a job there this coming summer leading Kayak Tours.  So we advanced her some cash to purchase her own kayak - it is bigger than her car!

So when I saw this Kayak Fabric I knew I needed to make her a kayak quilt.  Got that finished and it is quilted and bound, ready for a Christmas Surprise!  (ok I had snapped this on my ipad and I can't get it to turn it right side up - but you get the idea!)

Village Quilters Quilt Show

It has been FOREVER since I've had time to go to a quilt show. Well today I got to go to the Village Quilters Quilt show. What fun! There was so much eye candy I don't know where to start. But I think tonight I"ll share some of the MANY, MANY Bonnie Hunter quilts they had. It was amazing how many of Bonnie's quilts I saw! Enjoy!
