I really love 3 out 5.
2 of them were Hoffman's. Metallic prints . Love glitz and sparkle.
The vote is not in on the top one yet? Land and sea prints aren't my thing but most of them will work with other things I have.
This is my valentine. I had a tin from Christmas and used it. The red print was the only thing I had big enough to cover the top.( I have used up most all my Valentine prints) The fabric was from a medley I got about 4 years ago from K.S.Q. I love a good Mystery.
I will use it to keep special little things in.
I am trying to use what I have and scraps from my DD Jennie's projects, So when I got the bag in the mail it was like Christmas to me.
Keep making and creating. Flicsha

I still have to put the other scrappy shamrock together. Maybe tomorrow.
I am going to use this on the coffee table.
Right now it's full of quilt magazines. I have a green candle that will look good on it.
Another nice day about +55. If only it would say that way!
Keep sewing and quilting. Flicsha

We all made shamrock blocks at the meeting this month. It was a 12 " block. It will be interesting to see what everyone dose with it.
From right to left is Linda's mat/ center piece, My wall hanging, DD Jennie's wall hanging. I think we think a lot a like?
We meet at the Public Library meeting room. It's closed on Wednesday so we have it to are selves. You will see everything is mixed up in the order of the photos. I tried to load the shamrock 3 times and it would disappear every time I would try to move it. so I am going to leave it the way it is this time.
The bag was made by Janie.
Luann was the hostess this month . She made the best raspberry desert.
This is Luann's X's and O's or hugs and kisses quilt.
It's +45 today it's a tropical heat wave!! Keep quilting. Flicsha

This is what I have been working on . DD Jennie brought me a pattern and fabric to make a sample for the quilt shop. Well for 2 one is done. I did it yesterday. The other pattern is pieced. They are both in a pattern from Thimbleberries by Lynette Jensen called Basket Block Runners.
I plan to get the other one done by the weekend.
When making samples it's all about the fabrics and patterns at the shop. Not what I like.
It's a good thing I love my DD Jennie because I don't do things unless I like the fabrics and pattern as a rule.
The runner turned out very nice. They do a good job at Thimbleberries with their patterns.
We are having our monthly Orchard Quilt meeting today so I have to pack up 1/2 the house to go.
We are having a heat wave it's +22 and only 10:30 AM.
It's so nice in here. My feet aren't freezing this morning.
Stay happy and quilt something! Flicsha

I made some Mug Rugs for valentine's Day gifts. I don't spend a lot of $$ on cards.( It's cheaper than a card) I use that $$ on postage to send friends and family a Valentine they will keep. I made 12 in all but some went out in the mail yesterday. They cost very little as I used scraps for other projects. Even the binding comes from left overs. I keep my scrap binding in a big zipper plastic blanket bag. When I need small amounts of binding it's where I go before making new.
I had to make pink one for my D Sister Sue.
I worked on embroidering my DS Kelsey's name on his work shirts . He only had 8 of them. Then I put names and dates on 2 baby quilts for His girlfriend Jamie. They are at that age, all the friends and family are having babies.
Then I got to sewing on the mug rugs. I finished them all yesterday. My Dear friend Janie came and needed help with a small wall hanging. She worked on it and got it put together while I worked on things.
Best of all we had BLT's for lunch.
We are trying to think Summer and warm weather!
Stay warm and Make something! Flicsha

Finish it up Friday
I finished my Skinny Pinny trade.
I hope she likes it?
In it is the Skinny, a mug rug/candle mat, small Fairy scissors, emery strawberry, Scissor keeper, Micro wave hot pad and pattern/kit.
It will go in the mail Monday.
This is how the scissor keeper works. The scissors are mine. They are great for take a long and packing to take with you . Your scissors aren't pocking things or you!
Still cold and not much hope for at least a week. It was -5 last night or early this morning. (1:30 AM) before I went to bed. The high today is about +18. A regular heat wave!
Stayy warm and stay in side and sew! Flicsha

I used a 6" circle cut it in 1/2 =2 strawberry's
sew up the side seam, gather it around the top and fill. I used 2 layers of fabric wonder under together. Took pinking shears and free hand cut the top leaves . Put a thread in the top . then a little glue between the berry and the leaves.
It took me the longest to fill them all!
I think they will be a great June gift. If you don't want to put pins in them you can use them to hold down paper or maybe a pattern.
Now it is good night! Sleep warm and safe. Flicsha
I think they will be nice for when you take your scissors with you . They will not poke or cut things when packed in a bag or basket.
Now to decide on the one for my trade partner ? I hope to get it in the mail to her on Monday.
Baby it's cold out side!!! I am looking forward to Spring. Warmer weather would be so nice.
Keep sewing and quilting. Flicsha

DD Jennie has made it into kits for the shop so it's even faster for the quilters to get it done. It was on my kitchen table for a few days . I miss it!! I think I need one? You all know it's in my colors! GREEN
Jennie typed up a pattern and I took a photo of it . When I started to print the patterns the yellow cartridge is not working very well. They are kind of blueish-green when they printed out. Not good for ST. Pat's Day.
I hate to toss the new yellow ink but I may have to?
We have a snow day it's been coming down in big flakes this morning. It's covered every thing and not much going on in town. It's not a nice day out side my window. I live on Main St. on highway 20. I have not got a front yard but a side walk. I may have to shovel that if the snow stops?
I hope you all stay warm and safe and have a good day ! Keep sewing . Flicsha
