For my eldest

My oldest daughter and I have the same taste in fabrics (mostly), so I made her a cosmetic bag with some material I was hoarding for myself! I LOVE the way it turned out!


This is a pattern from Crafty Gemini (the UTUBE video) that I have used a hundred times! But it still takes me about an hour to make since I quilt my own fabrics together!


Selfish Sewing

Put all projects on hold to make myself a new composition book cover for work! I haven't had a new one since Valentine's Day:

Now replaced with an everyday fabric! And of course I timed myself!


Yah me! I bet work will be a lot more fun now......not!



My Daughter Cracks Me Up

Text from Amanda:

She has the best sense of humor! I guess she gets bored at the car wash!

Friday and Saturday Projects

Tried to get caught up on some projects:

2 dog beds:

Cover for the heating pad (cuz hubby hurt his back bad):

And I made a purse from a "Dog Under My Desk" pattern. So complex, glad I made it once, turned out pretty proessional looking if I do say so myself. Wish I had made it for myself, but my sister, Jana will be very excited and appreciative to get a "LA KINGs" purse.


Received in the mail today: Monsters Inc fabric to finish a quilt for my friend's daughter! Front is YOYOGABAGABA! It is the next to,go on my Longarm! I still have been procrastinating finishing the donation quilt that is on it now....maybe tomorrow....

I also WON this pattern and fabric from Sandy's giveaway. I will be using this pattern and material to make a quilt for the ALS foundation!

Love that girl!


Wednesday Doings

I'm getting behind on "promised" items, trying to catch up! There's a pretty good chance that I will soon be working 4 days a week---Mon, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday! 10 hour days, but still, an extra day off, yah!

Made a reversible Tablerunner tonight for my brother, Jeff: note he has the same black lab as in the material:



And a reversible one for my daughter who requested "wine fabric":


My table (with runner made two years ago):
