Jenn has already started on stitching up some gifts, her "famous" totes... I say famous because when she makes one friend a bag, she gets "can you make ME one? Pretty pleaseeeeee" questions.... and well, she's getting pretty good at the pattern with all the requests. Her totes and bags are pretty and very handy. Lisa also makes totes, cosmetic bags and purses so she will be helping out with the sewing. They both have very different styles so we'll have a nice variety.
I think I'll make some aprons. I found a site yesterday for a cute vintage Polka Dot Utility Apron that I just love. It's so nice of this site to offer these!
When I was at the quilt shop yesterday I bought this new fabric.. it's perfect for this project.
I love the retro kitchen tools plus the background of the fabric is light blue, the utensils are gray and black with the old-fashioned red wood handles. HOW CUTE!
Okay, so that's project one for today.
Project two is to continue working on my Happy Mochi Yum Yum Star Sampler quilt.... boy that's a mouthful. I made a few more blocks in the last couple of days and have three two go.
This blue one turned out nice considering there are pieces from three different jelly roll strips in it.
The pink blocks are still my favorite... I want this quilt to be girly... think I might use one of the pinks for the backing and binding.
SOO, the third thing I have to do today is work on my civil war English paper pieced quilt. When I was shopping yesterday, I picked up a piece of fabric for my next border. It has a beige gray background and little dark red flowers on it. It'll go well with the gray that I have surrounding my spools. Picture coming soon on that one. It's going to be a pattern also so I have lots of details to work out.
