Monday making

I have been working on these little appliqué flowers.
This weekend I was able to FINISH all the blocks.
There are 16 in all.

These little diamond shapes were almost all complete
In a little baggie at the thrift store.
I was so happy to find them and give them some life!
I added the circles and the stems.

I will be adding to this quilt this week.
Hoping to add four triangles to each square
To set them ON POINT!
I have unearthed some blues....

I am looking forward to showing you the next step!
Stay tuned.

I have uploaded two videos so far on this project.

Monday making - backpacking and charity quilt

My husband has a backpacking trip scheduled very soon.
He’s trying to collect ALL the things.

One thing he requested :

Yes. I can do that. 

It was fun to figure out how to make it small yet FUNCTIONAL!
 It’s also kind of CUTE.

I also finished a donation quilt.
Quilt blocks. CHECK!
Border.  CHECK!
Quilted and bound. CHECK!

It's always a good feeling to FINISH.

Monday making - this and that

This week I made these SUPER cute potholders.
I used some leftovers....of course!

These were leftover strips from a honeybun package.
Little tiny strips only 1 1/2” wide!

I didn’t have many...
I didn’t NEED many.

I also ended up doing a little sewing at my daughter’s house.
We were visiting her family in Texas 
and I found I had more time on my hands than expected.

With ONLY a sewing machine and NO supplies....
What was I to DO???
Shop at the thrift store!

I found some fabric (shirts and pillowcases)
And got to work!!

Don't cringe TOO MUCH when you see the scissors I'm using.

Video is HERE.
