Trail Tote handbag- beginning

Good morning everyone. Pictured above is the beginnings of a cute handbag made from a pattern by: Noodlehead. The pattern is the Trail Tote, and it can be made in a small or a large size. If you haven't looked at Noodlehead's patterns, you really should. They are just too cute! So far, the exterior, lining and piping are sewn. I will be finishing this bag very soon, so stay tuned for the reveal. There is a surprise as to the front of my bag! To see a photo of the lining, follow the link below my signature.

Constellations QAL: September

Talk about being behind... Here is my star for the RSC. September's color is orange. This block is called Rob Peter to Pay Paul (lol), and is for the monthly Constellations QAL going on over at: The Academic Quilter. I absolutely love the color orange, the whole colorway. Be sure to check out the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) as well as the Constellations QAL. Prim quilting blessings.

Happy Grandparents Day!

Good morning everyone. Sending happy Grandparents Day blessings to you all. What a pleasure to have those grands to watch grow up. I am so very thankful for both of my grandchildren. As of 2003, I have no grandparents surviving. They are all remembered and loved always. Happy day to you all.

Hurricane Harvey Pillowcase Drive

Everyone is so worried for the Hurricane Harvey victims. It really is such a terrible tragedy. In addition to helping with local collections, how about helping with the Pillowcase Drive over at: Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Sarah is always organizing a helpful event, and this is her latest. All of the info is on her blog. These three pillowcases finished at 30"X19", and have French seams. Sarah also has a link to a pillowcase tutorial on her post. Bless all people who were/are affected by this hurricane.

Everything is so cute Becky, thank you so much. To see what items I sent to Becky, follow the link below my signature.

Yankee Diary QAL: July block

Pictured above is my July block for the:Yankee Diary QAL over at Civil War Quilts Blog. This block is named A Valentine for Noah Clarke's Brother. Per the suggestion, I chose the reverse applique method for the center heart. Have you ever done this? It is fun and also adds some interest to the quilt block. It is not too late to join in on this QAL. Yes, I am so behind, lol. The August block will soon be available. Have you been sewing any blocks/quilting any lately?
