Tote Bag Finished!

John went camping/fishing this weekend with the boys so I decided to get this tote bag done while he was gone! I think I will only be making this one! It called for fusible fleece which I didn't have so I had to use sew in kind which was a pain! I must of ripped this tote bag three times. It's still not perfect! I'm sure I will use it but not right now. I can see the few mistakes I made.

I'm making a few other goodies, but can't show u right now because both sisters birthdays are this weekend and that would spoil the fun! Hope everyone is having a super day!

Flirty Skirty

This is an apron I made this week from The Apron Lady Designs called Flirty Skirty. Love the fabric! My local quilt shop, Cobblestones, had a kit already done with the fabric and pattern.

Now I'm starting on a baby quilt with the pattern Circle Around. It's from the Summer issue of Quilts and More! I have to a some project to work on so I'll stay out of the cookie jar!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Green Fairy Quilts

I just found a blog, Green Fairy Quilts, where they are asking for quilt donations and money donations for an upcoming trip to a Romania orphanage in Sept 2010. The money donations will be used to buy food as the orphanage is also a soup kitchen for the homeless kids. She writes how the kids blow into brown paper bags as that takes the hungry pains away.

So if you want to donate, go to their website and you can donate via paypal. I'm going to sew a quilt for them.

They have a video of their Sept 2009 trip where they are handing out the quilts for the kids and buying toys for them! Very cute kids!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day! We had a great weekend. John and I went out shopping for my gift and then out to lunch! Then yesterday we went to my sisters house for a nice cookout. Below is my Mother's Day gift! Isn't she pretty! I asked for a sewing machine for my birthday (which was last month) and John felt that wasn't a fun gift to give. I think I must of talked about alot since then, lol, so Saturday he said "enough"! We are going to get it! Yahooooo!!! I'm very happy!

Now I just to need to figure out how to use her!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!

Mom & Dad

We went to my Uncle Donald's wedding recently (my Mom's youngest brother) and had a great time seeing all the cousins. It was a nice small ceremony where both bride (Bernie) and groom were radiant. Of course, I didn't get a pic of them because they were too busy! So here's a pic of my parents, Warren & Lee, who will be celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary this June! They both said it went by really fast.

I've finished sewing a Quilts for Kids quilt and I'm now sewing a tote bag. Hope everyone is having a great day!
