For Jennie

 Jennie liked my other flag mini so I made her one today.

Red , White, & Blue

 I made this for a challenge in one of my on line groups. It will be over to night so I thought it would be safe to post it now for the 4th. We had to use this pattern . I used what I had on hand. It is now DD Jennie's. It lives at her house.
I am sure that she will have it out for the 4th of July get to gather they are having.
Have a great 4th of July!   Flicsha

This and that.

 Had a challenge in a quilt group to make a 9x11 mug rug / mini quilt. Swiped DD Jennie's scraps and did this this morning. It's a little artsy but it conveys the thought.
 Monday was make something for Jennie day. I embroidered the hanging quilts and made a pink batik pinnie for her.
 I did 2 more pencil cases yesterday. I found the scraps from another project so it's cut it up use it up.
We also worked on pillow case dresses / night gowns. I think we got 5 or 6 done.
I also got out a UFO quilt out and sorted through it. I got it ready to work on . Maybe I will get it done ? I hope sooner than later .
Keep smiling and sewing!  Flicsha

Sunday morning project.

I made 2 of these sewing machine pad/pockets for gifts to quilt friends. They are good for reducing vibration and noise.
They also hold small things you need at the machine while sewing.
Keep happy and quilting.  Flicsha

Friends and quilters.

I finally got my wall hanging done from quilt group. We all did blocks with our name and a saying on it for each other.
I kind of didn't get it finished until yesterday. I put the binding on last night.
One more UFO finished.
Now where to hang it ?
For now have a good Sunday and keep stitching!   Flicsha

Pencil bags or cases ?

DD Jennie and I made pencil bags this afternoon . 10 in all . We had fun finding  zippers and thread to match. I embroidered them while she cut them out and put zippers in them .
They will go to the Pine Ridge  Indian Reservation. Jennie saw it on the internet.  We thought we should do a few. We used a pair of stretch jeans . WE will not do that again !! It goes wonky . It's hard to work with.
I don't think the kids will mind wonky.
It's all ways nice to sew with my dear Jennie.
Keep making and sewing even if it's not perfect!!  Flicsha

My Sunday.

 In My Art quilt group the project was to use the 3 component's Bars ,1/2 sq. triangles, and  a framed sq.  This is my Sunday morning play with the challenge. It's only 9" sq.
 Needed a couple of gifts for quilters. I made little arm chair caddy's to hold  pins ,tread, small scissors, thimble or what ever they need. 
I also made 12 lanyards for  thread snips, keys or what ever you want to keep handy.
My day was full DD Jennie came for a while to sew and DF Janie came to visit and show use what  she has been working on. We all had a nice visit.
Keep creating and quilting! Flicsha
