Two little ornaments....

I made these two ornaments using a pattern I have 
in the Art to Heart book called Sew Necessary.

The pattern is for scissor fobs.
I thought I would using them as ornaments.
Cute eh!
I will use one as a teacher gift.
But the other one I'm keeping.
I was sick yesterday and part of today.
But, I'm feeling better now.
Back to work tomorrow and Sunday.
Have a great weekend.

I have a finished flimsy!!! Yeah!!!

Okay, so after having gone a month without sewing,
I finally got my sewing mojo back this weekend.

I finished my Broken Dishes quilt top.
I'm so happy with this quilt top.
I love the fabrics that I chose.
It's Bar Harbor with some other Minick & Simpson prints.
This is a lap size quilt.
I hope you like it.
It feels good to get sewing again.
Now I have to figure out how I will quilt it.

Here's a sneak peak of what you will get to see that night.

I made something!!!!

Hi everyone,

I know it's been a while.
I've been in a rut.
I just couldn't get myself to make anything for a while.
I don't know if any of you have ever been through that. 
I have all these quilts that need to be finished.
But, I just couldn't get motivated to do any sewing.
I've been so, so busy lately.
I've just been too tired and not motivated.

But, today, I went to visit my crafty sister Michele.
I woke her up this morning!!!
Sorry, Michele!!!!

I had brought some of my Christmas Scrapbooking paper,
And I made some ornaments for my Christmas tree.
We will be putting our Christmas tree tomorrow.
It was fun to finally get something made for the holidays.
I will try to show up here a bit more often.
