Yet another one......

I just can't stop creating with this fabric! I just finished this tote today with the jolly packs I bought from here and I already have another idea in my head.

Also the design group I belong to on ebay is having a launch this week so go check out all the super cute "button" inspired items the Chicks have listed!

Have a wonderful night! Meg

Hump Day

Wow I can't believe it is Wednesday already!
Here are a few peeks of what I have been working on
This quilt block has fabrics from theMix & Mingle collection by Sandy Garvis I think I am going to make a tote with it.

This fun bag is for the Flickr Group Bag Ladies Swap, this months theme is Shopping Bags and I found this fun tutorial such a great idea. I added a few of my own revisions & touches and I love how it turned out! Hopefully my partner will love it too! I am going to make myself one as well!

And to save the best for last here is my new Ginger Blossom fabrics (well my first order still a few more to come :) This great collection is by Sandi Henderson of PortabelloPixie this fabrics is just beautiful, even more so in person. My mind is already spinning in the projects I want to complete with this fabric! But for now I will just stare at it.

Have a great evening! Meg

Think Spring!!!!

Ben had lots of fun with his daddy plowing the snow he has been begging to do so all winter and it finally snowed enough to get the plow out!

I on the other hand can't wait for Spring being in the house all day yesterday prompted me to be Betty Crocker and make a batch of strawberry jelly, 9 dozen cookies and a some pink peppermint marshmellows (which were quite yummy!) I need sunshine!

So today I felt inspired to think spring!
Here is my new Flutter Tote I love the bright colors and pretty butterflies. The flap has a color block path down the center and the butterflies have button accents. The exterior is in a denim woven with tiny silver threads. I think it turned out quite cheery!

Have a happy Valentines Day!

My New "Little" Project

Okay mabye not so little!
My grandmother passed a book on to me she has had for 28yrs it is called Quilt in a Day, I am certain the author did not have 3, 4yr olds running around her feet all day! The book is based upon the log cabing quilt square, I have always loved the geometric look though I am not following the traditional color/scheme layout. I choose all of my favorite fabrics and started sewing my plan was to incorporate the blocks in a tote bag now I love them so much I have decided I want to make a quilt for my bed. I have my first 4 squares done the measure 11" x 11", yea only 84 more to go! Wish me luck! Meg
