DD Jennie's Hearts

 Here are 4 of my DD Jennie's hearts she made for  I Found A Quilted Heart.
She did them this afternoon while sewing with me.

I Found A Quilted Heart!

 DD Jennie found a sight called I Found A Quilted Heart.  It is a concept of placing quilted hearts in public places to be found by random strangers.
So for my play time Sunday project I made 16 hearts for some strip pieced scraps from one of Jennie's projects.
I sewed them all together until I had a rectangle. Quilted it and cut hearts out of it. I used left over fluffy quilt batting form quilt trimmings.
Now is the fun part of putting them out in the world for people to find and keep.
It will be interesting to see if they get reported as found.
I am keeping one of them. So it's 15 to go out to be found.
For now Keep having fun with your sewing!  Flicsha

Pen Pal package.

It's time to send a package to my Pen Pal .
This is the collection of things for this month.
That's a spool pin doily I made for her sewing machine in the hexie fabric dish.
The framed saying is one of my favorite. I think she will like it also. She loves things about tea. She collects tea pots so I made a tea cozy for a tea pot and a mug rug for her tea cup. the saying is from Peter Pan.
She also collects pin C. so in went one I made.
And there has to be fabric. So in went some of my Orchid fabric with my name on the salvage. I won a bolt some years ago and use it very little. Someday it will be quilts for my DD Jennie and my 2 G-Daughters and my self.
Last is some pin fabric I got at the state quilt convention this week. Just because I liked it!
 I think she will enjoy getting this package as much as I enjoyed making the things in it.
For now stay cool and keep stitching!   Flicsha

Mug Bag

This is the Quick Quilt Saturday project for this week. It will carry your mug , tea, sugar and a mug rug .
Now you can carry your cup and tea with you to work or where ever you like.
It has a pocket for your tea bag and sugar or sweetener . You just fold the mug rug and put it in by the mug holder.
Keep sewing and quilting.  Flicsha

My Pen Pal surprise Box

What a nice surprise I got from my Quilt Pen Pal today. It felt like Christmas .
 Tried the chip and Salsa  right way.  Pretty darn good!
I love green and batiks so they are just perfect
Everything will be put to good use. This was a very thoughtful package.
Love it all. It's so nice to have a Pen Pal to talk about things we love . Fabric , sewing. and quilt. Life in general.
Not so hat today but the humidity was just to much!
Keep creating and sewing. Flicsha
