EyeGlass Cases

I've been whipping out a bunch of these.  I LOVE THEM!  I'm making myself one of each to keep, just so I always match! :)

The tops have metal strips on each side, so it snaps open and closed. Here are some colors I made them in :D

I'm a bag making monster

Bags bags bags!  I've been making some coin purses, makeup bags, and more makeup bags!! :)  Below are some pictures of my quilted makeup bags, so you can see outside and insides.  I love the pink bags, I am debating keeping them all for me, but I don't think I can fill that many up! :D

7x8 finished size.

Coin Purse - 3.5x5.5 finished size.

WIP - My Sisters Yellow Gray Quilt

I've had these quilt blocks cut out for about a week now, and I've been too nervous to start sewing them together.  Tonight I sat down, and powered through the WHOLE quilt top in about 2 hours.  I really like how it turned out.  Now I need to cut some borders, sew them on, and the biggest dilemma...How to quilt the top.  Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I'm flip flopping between straight lines/diagonals and an all over meander/stipple.

Table Covers

So, my MIL, DH and I were shopping at my local quilt shop, and found some charm packs that we ALL loved. Origins, by basic grey for Moda.  So, we grabbed 3 of em, and some extra yardage for backing, and I whipped up some table covers for the living room.  A long one for the coffee table, and 2 smaller ones for end tables.  Still need to do 3 more, but decided to show you all.  I really really like the colors in this collection!!

I even made the backs reversible.

Why my sewing and blogging has been slow...

I've been babysitting for a friend of ours.  So...with two little ones (and the occasional 5 year old), my sewing time is cut down. :)

Sewing with Friends

It's always fun to sew with friends!  You can goof, help each other, and motivate each other! My friend Lori stopped by this afternoon - we got a good amount of stuff done.  Lots of giggles and lots of sewing!

I might have a new sewing addiction - coasters.  I've seen "mug rugs" on a couple blogs I follow, so I think I might look into em.  but they are super cute, and super simple, and then you quilt it and have this amazing looking rug to use everyday! <3
