A few fun things

Here are a few fun things I got done this week along with my challenge quilt. First off I made a lunch bag! Holly asked me if I could make one like her grocery bag only smaller for her lunch at school. I thought hers turned out so cute and it was such a great idea I made myself one! Now instead of carrying my lunch down to the lunch room at work I have a cute little bag to carry it in!

And I also got 2 Premie Quilts made for our guild. These are always so much fun to make because you can be creative on a small quilt and see the finished product fast! And I always put a lot of love into them for their new owners.

Those preemie quilts just couldn't be sweeter *s* It's easy to see there is love in every stitch.

I just love these little quilts. Do you have directions or a tutorial for these? I will be checking your blog out. I am just learning to quilt and enjoying it a lot.

great bag.
I should make one of those I am always carrying food with us when we go out shopping if lunch isn't on the list of places to go.
The girls are always hungry as soon as we get there!

Don't 'cha just LOVE paisley? Maybe it is because I flash back to the 60s but I buy every paisley fabric I see.

The preemie quilts are so sweet...and I am sure the moms really appreciate you caring enough to take the time to make them!

Love your preemie quilts...wish my little one could have had one. (she was 1 lb. 8 oz.) Alas, she's all grown up now! And doing great!

Great projects Dawn, and fun to have something simpler to do occasionally instead of the chose, chose, chose and hope it works.
Maybe I will even see some of those vintage fabrics used in Aunt Mary's quilt some day *VBS* Hugs, Finn
