WOW! What a fun treat to come home too! A belated Birthday gift arrived in the mail today from Shelly! Her mother and her collaborated on this mini quilt for me, the BIRD being one of mine from my "Birds of paradise" embroidery pattern.
I LOVE the blue and mossy green palette and the bits of BRIGHT in the fabrics and the stitching are FABULOUS! Thank you so much, you TWO very special women! Wahoo! I love it!
LOVE the stitching too.... check out the nice big flowers... gorgeous...
I took a break from QUILTS the last two days and made a TOTE bag for myself out of
SILVER VINYL! Isn't it fun? I get a bit sparkly when I use it... as some of the sparkle flakes off, but it's work it... ;-) I also made the wrap jacket I have on... I made it copying a knit wrap sweater I have, ( and have had for 16 years!) and wanted another one... I took two colors of T-Shirt knit and made it reversible, and then I am doing some hand stitching on it, and reverse applique like the Alabama Stitches books... I figure it will be a good travel project as I can WEAR it and take it off and sew on it!

Looks fun right?? I'm loving it! Above is the stitching and below is the crazy silver vinyl I used to make the tote.
I wasn't the only one who got into PROJECTS at the sewing machine... A tween Birthday party gift... I made a tote and Boo made the cat pillow.... All is well in the universe!
What projects are you working on today or this weekend?
