Some Goodies

I had finally finished and delivered my mom's disappearing 9 patch table runner.

Made with a Simple Abundance Charm Pack

It looks great on the antique pub table! 

Also, this week at our Modern Quilt Guild meeting we had a sew-in and pincushion swap.  Once again, I forgot to take a picture of the item I made for the swap.  But I do have pictures of the amazing pincushion I received.  It was made in a tin with a lid...great for a paranoid person with a dog and a baby on the way!!  The creator did a beautiful job making it and is really talented.

New Bag!

I finally made my Amy Butler Birdie Sling bag!  It is perfect for the end of summer and fall season and I am very excited about it!

I used some of my Amy Butler Love stash for this bag.  I used Sunspots for the bands and handle and Paradise Garden for the outside and the lining is made with Cypress Paisley all in the wine colorway. 

This bag is a great bag for beginners.  The pattern was super easy to follow and very detailed.  It's not at all as difficult as Amy Butler patterns are rumored to be.  This was her first pattern that I have used and I would definitely try another one of her patterns.
