Lindsey’s College Quilt

I am so excited!  I found enough time to rock and roll on the sewing machine yesterday!  Everyone was gone, and I finished Lindsey’s quilt that she will take to Samford.  I snapped these pictures before I take it to the longarm quilter.  I can’t wait to see how it looks all quilted and cozy!  Something a little ironic about making a quilt when it is 107 outside!  Yes, it was THAT hot here yesterday afternoon! …

Top Knot Bag in Brown and Lime

I don’t think I have ever shown off this bag that I made when I went on the retreat this past spring.  I showed you most of the other projects (I think) but I can’t find where I blogged about this one.  This bag is FOR SALE for $30 if you are interested.  It is fully reversible and the fabrics are so fun and spring-y! There is a cute little pocket on the outside, as…

Pretty {Little} Pouch Swap

Today’s post is all about one of my recent sewing endeavors.  Hope you will smile along with me!  About a year and a half ago, I discovered the online quilting community — the HUGE online quilting community!  I had NO idea how vast it really is!  I am still learning, in fact.  I quickly learned that you have to set up a Flickr account (online photo gallery, if you haven’t heard of this) and then…

Double Sided Fabric Headbands

Sorry that I just now realized the photos were NOT on the post!  Not sure what happened!  They were there on Saturday! Another little project that I was eager to try!  Adorable fabric headbands that are reversible.  Check out the tutorial HERE! I pulled out some bright prints that I had purchased in a Fat Quarter stack, and went to work.  These are quick and easy and the teenagers love them!   I’ve made these 4…

Ruffled Linen Tote

Can you handle another post or two with sewing projects?  I hope so……because I actually have several more things to show off, and I have had NO TIME to stamp anything.  I still have baskets from Stamp Club last week on my desk!  Yikes! This is a beautiful gray linen that I purchased at JoAnn’s.  The lining material is a Denyse Schmidt print from JoAnn’s also.  I found the tutorial for this bag HERE and it is also…

  This is my newest purse — A Ruffled Messenger Bag.  I love how it turned out!  I will definitely make more from this pattern!  You can FIND IT HERE if you want to sew one yourself.  Or, contact me and I’ll be happy to make one for you!  This one is also for sale…….and if it doesn’t sell, it will become mine! Ha!  It is a gorgeous brown linen material paired up with a floral…

Tag Along Baby Quilt

This baby quilt is still in progress, but I completed the top when we went to Three Mountain Retreat two weeks ago.  It is now “sandwiched” together with the batting and some chocolate brown flannel on the back.  I hope to get busy quilting it this week and have it ready for a special baby boy that was born last week.  I will take it as a gift to the “Sip and See” that is…

Layer Cake Quilt

On Friday,  Allyson and I went to McKinney to visit my mom and my sister-in-law.  I had not gotten to see my SIL and exchange gifts with her and Allyson wanted to see both of them before she goes back to college.  We had a great day that included lunch at Chili’s and some shopping!  We went to Hobby Lobby and 2 of my favorite Quilt Shops.  If you are looking for any FANTASTIC shops…

Hand-made with love……from Deborah~

So, I’m a few days late, but I wanted to show you this precious cuptowel that my friend Deborah made for me!  I was squealing with delight when I unwrapped it!  It is perfect for me and she embroidered it with lots of love!  Thank you so, so much, Deborah!  You did such a good job and I’m thrilled to have it hanging in my kitchen.  I’m not sure I can pack it away after…

Hand-made with love…

There’s something in me that just loves making things for others.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy BUYING things for others.  But there’s never enough money to do all the buying, and it just seems so much more special when I can make it with my hands.  I think nothing less of those who DO NOT make things, sew things, stamp things, or create things.  But in our home, we are really into the “hand-made…
