A finish


I hope you all are having a great end of summer weekend.  School starts for my son on Wednesday.  His Senior year.  Yikes!  I will be posting a picture of him soon.

The quilt show at the local library was a success!  Lots of great comments.  Can't wait to put some new ones up in the Spring.  I have not done a lot of sewing lately as I have been dealing with an ill parent.  I think some things are settling down now and I can pick up the sewing again.  I do have a finish to show you.  I was gifted a puzzle of buttons last Christmas.  I don't have room or time for that but my friend's niece loves to do them and is putting it together for me.  I will pay her of course because we are going to frame it, but I wanted to make her something too.  I found this pattern- Lined-drawstring bag by Jeni Baker.  It was so easy to do I can't wait to make more.

That's all I have to show for today.  Look for another post in the next day or two.  I am going to the Quilt Expo and will have the honor of meeting a fellow blogger.  I will post that information and a little more about her in my next post.

Hi friends!

Hope you are all enjoying the last few weeks of summer break.  My friends in Arizona have already sent their kids back to school.  My son doesn't start until September 3.  His senior year! Yikes!

I have decided that I need to get some WIPs done.  I have too many things and I need to finish them up and sell them.  My crafting area is too small to hold on to so much.  I guess a picture of my craft area would look pretty good on here so you all can see it.  But until I can organize and clean a little that is not going to happen.

So here is my to do list in no particular order:

Quilt tops to quilt, bind, label and wash:
           Cherries Jubilee
           Ragged Squares Quilt
           Baby Boy Scrappy Trip Quilt
           Nordika Quilt

Finish all started tablerunners

Empty craft bin of items to make-potholder/towels, santa hat purses, misc.

Well I am going to stop there for now until I can go through and make a complete list.  It may not look like a lot now but it is and it's overwhelming sometimes.  I just need to clean my sewing area and start tackling some of these.

Wish me luck!

What are you working on?
