The Orchard Quilters started are group with this project . We all had a month and a block. For some reason I only have 8 blocks completed. I am now doing a 9th one so I can put this quilt together. I think it's time to finish it!! I think I am setting it with the rose and blue print in the center front block. I only have 10 yards or so of it. I must have liked it at the time or it was a very good sale! I am doing a simple friendship star to get it finished. I will set it on point. So wish me luck maybe by Friday?
In the mean time keep quilting! Flicsha

I am off to Omaha Sunday to pickup my DGD Kristin she is coming home from Seattle. She is a high school English teacher there. It will be good to see her.
It's late so keep sewing and stay warm! Flicsha
I finished the top bag Wednesday and got it in the mail.
I did the other 2 yesterday.
I also got the rest of my mug rugs done last night.
I got some things wrapped. I used the shopper adds. I did use metallic cored to tie them. When you live in a town of 300 and some and 25 miles to a town that would have wrapping paper you get creative. repurpose and reuse.
Keep warm and keep sewing!

I had a quiet Sunday. My DS Kelsey and his girlfriend came for breakfast. That was a nice surprise. Then the rest of the day was mine.
It's all ways a challenge to just use what you have. Zippers are hard to come by when you live 65 miles from the closest fabric store. I had to make a call or 2 for help from friends. To get some that would go with the fabrics.
It's time for bed.
So keep sewing and quilting. Flicsha
I got the fabric 2 years ago this Christmas to make her something and
NOW was the time.
I had some of the quilted fabric left so I made a coin purse. I an not happy with the quilting but it's done . Some times things just don't turn out like you thank they will. I finished it Friday night.
Stay warm, Merry Christmas and most of all keep sewing!!

I got my new Jewelry Armour 2 weeks ago Monday At the Salvation Army bin store.
My D Son took me. They throw every thing in big laundry carts or bins. They open the isle and let everyone have at it. It's a free for all! It was like a bunch of Purana's!(not sure of the spelling)
I wasn't brave and went looking at the other things the had sitting around. And there it was sitting all by it's self. It had a handle missing . I opened the drawer and there it was. Where the fabric is was empty. The mirror was brock out and the lid was brock and coming apart. There were scratches on it. But the inside is like new.
It came home to live at my house. It has been sitting in my living room were we sat it.( With the help of DD Jennie. )It's very heavy.
Today was the day I started to work on it. Fixed the lid put some fabric that matched the mauve lining. glued the handle that was off. I also filled in the scratches. It looks great. Now to get some one to help me move it to my bedroom. Then to fill it with my things.
I have made other gifts but the ones I made them for read my blog. So I can't post them.

Below was my first one I don't know what I was thinking. Or maybe I wasn't? The pockets are facing down when the caddy is closed the cars will fall out!
There is a zipper down the center width of this on. It will still hold cars but not well thought out. Some little boy will love it any way.
Stay warm and keep sewing!!
