Summer hand bag!

This is my new summer purse! I was cleaning up a hug mess that had made and found this all cut out and waiting for me to sew. I figure I cut it out two years ago.  So in between the business of life I sewed it up. I love it, it is so bright and cheery on a summer that is taking its own sweet time getting cheery and warm.

It's at the quilters!!!!!!!!!

Front and back done!!!! I took it in to the quilter to ask a few last questions and she said I'll take it!!!! SWEET............... Now, when October comes she'll quilt it!
Yes, I said October. This quilter is very good and very popular! So I will wait. She has been great I  asking her all the silly question that came into my head being that I have never taken a guilt to be machine quilted. I have been very nervous, checking out everyones quilting to see how their stitches are and how much care they took with the spacing etc.   I am very at peace with my decision. So now to work on my next project while I wait.
(Sorry the one photo isn't the best the sun was so bright that day I have close the curtains.)

My sons quilt is started!

This is Fabric from the Shabodi Dragon store in Tacoma! Love there selection, I picked this up last year at the Shop Hop 2009 and here I am just now cutting it out two weeks before Shop Hop 2010. The colors were picked for my son who sent me with a list of acceptable print types and colors!  After careful deliberation orange and blue is what I choose.  I officially have it cut out and I started sewing it at sew club Wednesday. I have a wappin 3 squares sewn a 90 rectangles to go!, They make the squares! So many little parts!!!!! They pattern still worries me.

Major Progress!!! It's a quilt back finally!

This is the quilt back to the quilt I started last year with Old Red Barn quilt along last year. I did manage to complete the top of the quilt , but life got in the way of the back.  In my determination to finish up my UFO's I have been going through the pile and its turn has popped up this last week.  After remeasuring to figure out where I was happy to discover that the quilt back was ready to sew!  Two days later we have quilt back!!!! Yea!

It is all ironed and ready to go to the quilters. I need to give the top a super good ironing and anchor the edge seams, but as I can not decide which quilter to  use I have a little time.

Surprise in the mail!

In a day and age where most of us dread the mail for fever of another bill to deal with, it is really nice to open the box and find a package! Thanks to Amy for having Spring festival and thanks to Green Fairy Quilts for sponsoring and offering up this lovely prize!
I Love the three patterns they choose to send I think that layers of love will be the first too get used, but it won't be anytime soon, I'm still working through my UFO's I am determined to get some of this stuff done! Garden party uses applique so that one is interesting, but I'm not into the raw edge style so I need to look closer at the direction, which at a glance looks rather complete!   When I get to these, which at being added to my I want to makes! (IWM)   I'll let you know how they turn out.
