Grandma has been very busy sewing since last week. I completed another of the Sampler bags....

Two of the hipster bags........

Strip quilt

This is a quilt that I taught at Pink Florida Threads a few months back. It is a basic quilt using strips of fabric that might have been left from another project, or that you purchased in a blend of colors specifically for this project. It can take on so many different looks by how the strips are sewn together. I decided to embellish a bit further and added the applique flowers.

This will be added to the collection for sale in Maggie Valley in October.

Have a GREAT day :-)

Pink Firetruck

Special order is my speciality.....

A baby is on the way and her daddy is a fire-fighter.
She will be coming home in style with this cute
PINK Firetruck diaper bag to carry all her special items.

The pink stripe fabric is complimented with denim bottom and handles and the inside of bag has my trademark pockets all around, snap closure and key fob.

See you in a few days with yet another fun bag.

Princess or Little Slugger

A princess can be a little slugger too...or just maybe the parents are BIG Boston Red Sox fans. Either way, cute diaper bag to hold all the necessitites and show support for your favorite team all at the same time.

Since it is impossible to find "pink" Red Sox fabric or any baseball fabric as far as that goes.....we must go to the design board and create our own. This cute pink stripe fabric is the background for the hot pink appliqued letters
" R E D S O X".
The baseball is cut from a themed fabric and stitched on. As with all my bags, pockets are a must and the inside is loaded with them....along with a key fob and snap closure tab.

Welcome little Red Sox Princess :-)

Where does the time go?

I just checked the date on my last blog and it tells me that I have had a very busy month.

The second month of retirement for Wes and we have been doing lots of things, including remodeling a house...phew, not as young as I once was...LOL

About the only thing I sewed in the last several weeks is the top to a stool for the boys and a couple pillows for Michelle.

Things are settling down a bit and I can get back to the sewing machine. I have a few bags to make for some lovely ladies....first on deck is a cute little diaper bag with a baseball theme....come back in a day or so to see the picture of that one.

Hope you are having a great weekend and if you are in Florida...hope you are staying's a scorcher out there.
