Merry and Bright

That is the name of this fabric from Moda...Merry and Bright. I got this fabric on a fun trip this summer to visit my friend Kathy in Maggie Valley. The cutest little quilt shop just drew us in.
We both bought the fabric and decided it would be our project for this winter. I just finished mine up this week.....using my new "free motion" skill to quilt it.
Check out the is made from sewing all the scraps together to make a long strip.

Not sure who said this first, but: Quilts are soooooo comforting :-)

How in the world does a week pass and I didn't notice???

Check out this cutie for the cat lovers out there. The outside is sophisticated enough to carry to the office or wherever your heart desires. The lining is so whimsical it is sure to give you a smile every time you open your bag :-) The cute tie can be changed to suit your mood and/or occasion with the black/white stripe tie or purple tie. This bag is my medium size and also has a zipper.

And....accesories are totally in. The eyeglass pouch, cell phone holder and credit card holder compliement the set.

How do you like it???

Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday.......

shoulder bag

I was able to get back to creating the last couple of days and have a new style purse. Love the tropical fabric and woven handles. It has a snap closure, inside pocket and outside pocket and matching eye glass case and credit card holder.

Baby Shower

This is the large tote (diaper bag) that was our gift to a lovely lady today for her Baby shower/Birthday Party.

Was so good to see so many wonderful friends. We all just don't get to see each other enough. Do we?

The bag is made from a cute Debbie Mumm nursery print with a deco solid blue fabric for bottom and handles. The lining is baby blue with mint green pockets complimented by the stripe fabric.

I hope that our little Mommy will enjoy using it as much as I did making it. Hugs Rebecca :-)

Tribute to a loved one

Our clothing surely tells our story and gives our family a memory forever. I was so honored when this family asked me to put together this tribute quilt to honor the memory of their loved one.

This is the same type quilt that I made with my son's high school t-shirts and will be presenting to him in the very near future......

Hope you are enjoying your week.

Take care......will be back soon :-)
