Good Night

It was such a good night around here.....I made fajitas for dinner, sun was shining and warm, American Idol is on and I got a quilt top almost 100% finished!! I just have a few more pieces of sashing to put on tomorrow and it will be done! Just one more thing on my ever growing "to sew" list completed.

........Pictures to come later.......

Time to go to bed and read, my book is at that don't want to stop reading point!

Potholder Swap

We had a potholder swap at my Modern Quilt Guild meeting this weekend and look what I got!

Jennifer made this fabulous potholder and I just love it! Thanks a bunch!

....and sorry, I forgot to take pictures of my potholder before I gave it away....

Feeling Accomplished

A lot has been done today...and it's not even 1:00 yet!

*Fabric ordered for my quilt block for next months Mod Quild meeting! {yipee I finally figured out what I want to do!} For any of my Knox Mod Quilt gals reading, here's a hint....half-square triangles.

*Finished all 160 hst for a quilt I am making for someone. {hopefully it all gets finished this week, assuming the rest of the fabric I ordered gets here soon!} Pictures to come after the quilt is delivered!

*Planning out a wonderful quilt for a special farmhouse...a quilt that doesn't have to be a wall hanging but a perfect quilt to be snuggled under!

And now it's time to go see Shutter Island...perfect rainy Sunday afternoon!

My Downy Quilt for Kids Quilt is finally finished....I don't know what took me so long to get it done. Now it is all washed and ready to be sent out and given to a sick child in a hospital somewhere!
All it needs now is a name....and I am horrible at coming up with quilt names....leave me a comment with any ideas for a name so I can mail out the quilt...

What's On My Machine

Quilting my Quilt for Kids quilt.......and yes, those are gummy bears on top of my machine....perfect sewing snack!

Spring Tote

I have been wanting a new bag for I made one! This tote is the perfect size for everyday use {especially if you are like me and always have a million things to carry around daily!}
There is a great big pocket on the front and two good size pockets on the inside. Outside fabric is Amy Butler Ginger Bliss and the inside dotties is Anna Maria Horner {don't know the line}

This was my first tote that I was so easy and fun I am already planning on what bag I should make next.........

Bad, Bad Thing

I did a bad, bad thing tonight. I made a super cute new tote last night and I took some really good pictures with my camera. Well I went to upload the pictures and realized hubby still has the cord since he was using the camera for work. Not a problem I think, I will just take the memory card and slide it into the little slot thing on the laptop. Well, my computer ate the memory card. That's right, it ate it. Ate it as in the memory card with all my wonderful pictures is no more. I can't even see the little thing in there! Won't hubby be so happy when he gets home from his meeting. I hope he can figure out how to get it out!
