From the left overs!

I made this tote, a key fob and a coin purse from the left overs from my large bag . It's all box up to send to Jennie so I don't have to carry it all on the plane the May 3. It will be nice to see all my quilt friends at the quilt meeting in Orchard. I am looking forward to seeing their projects.

Josh the oldest grandchild is graduating the 7th of May. They all are growing up to fast to suit me!!

Jennie's callenge is done!!!

This is the back of my bag I made for Jennie's challenge she sent me. It was a 1/2 a sweatshirt panel she sent me and gave the quilt group members back in Orchard.
I used instructions and all that was on the panel.

If you look and see the woman's eyes and parts of her on the front here.

It will hold my lap top or something just fine.

What is it?

This is a challenge Jennie sent me. She sent me a pre-print panel for a quilted sweat shirt . From the late 80's or early 90's? Not my kind of thing it was mostly blue. So I pulled 4 other patriotic fabrics and cut them in strips and pin weaved them together. Now I am sewing red metallic cord over the seams that join. You can see the 2 rows I have done on the bottom. I think it will be a bag to put in the car for a carry all.

Love flowers in the yard!

Linda a DF and I stopped at a nursery and we had to buy these pretty little flowers. It's a Iceplant . Used mostly for ground cover.
In time it will fill in very nicely. I wanted something easy to care for here in the high desert. It likes the dry heat.
I got going on a new cloths line bowl . I got the strips for the free stuff at the Fiber Arts Studio.
We are having a festival in the middle of may. I will be in NE. but I will donate things for the ticket drawing. This bowl is up for grabs if you are in the Bisbee area on May 14th at the Festival.
