SEW FUN !!!!

Look what came in the mail this week...such LOVELINESS!
I got my two "charm packs" from here.
I bought them for this (below). Thanks for the inspiration, Rachel!
I ordered the pattern here.
But... before I can make that (above), I need to finish this (below).
This is how far I've gotten so far (below). I need to keep pushing through until I complete it. It has been SO fun to make, so far.
The pattern came from this book:
And speaking of sewing, I purchased this darling purse, with small make-up bag, from Cyndi's Re-Creations in her Etsy Shop here.
And a big THANK YOU to Ruth Ann for this Giveaway I won, below. She included lots of extra goodies along with the movie. We finally watched it last night. I was impressed that it had a meaningful message and wasn't just a frivolous romance.

You might also enjoy visiting Ruth Ann's charming Etsy shop here.
Have a good weekend everyone.

I adore quilts! I just don't make them. But I envy you ladies who have the patience and talent to do so. Yours is looking wonderful!

What a beautiful quilt you are working on! Summer goal - make my first quilt - beware sewing machine! Absolutely took my breath away to see your mother's honeymoon picture at the Grand Cannyon! Reminds me of my "clueless" visit there! Another story! Have a wonderful week! E

Your current quilt project is beautiful as well as your soon to start quilt project. Quilting is a beautiful art. It's on my list of items to try soon.

Your header is so cute! Love the quilt you're working on! I really need to get on it - I've been wanting to make a little quilted runner for my dining room table for over a year now but never have the time to sit down and put my fabric together!


Small House said...

WOW...the quilts are wonderful. WOW again.

LUCKY YOU!! to be the winner of such a great give-away. That's always fun. Sounds like it was a good weekend for you.

Have a great day.

I love all your cool creations!

Erin said...

What great fabric. I really need to learn to sew. My mom quilts, and I need to go get a lesson or two from her! Congrats on the give away you won!

Something Marvellous said...

That bag is so cute! Lucky you for winning it!

Kim said...

I love your header on your blog. Such cute Easter decor. I guess I should think about getting mine out. I'm in the middle of projects so thought maybe I wouldn't decorate this year but I have some great things I added to my collection last year that you are inspiring me to get out.

Congrats on winning the giveaway. Lucky you. I never win any.

Amy said...

The quilt you're working on is great! Love the Ava Rose charm packs!

I'm always so impressed by quilters! Looks like your working hard! They're lovely!

Scrap for Joy said...

Your new fabric is beautiful and will make a great quilt. Your basket quilt is a super design. I took a quilting class once...long ago and we did everything by hand, piecing, sewing and quilting. I made 4 pillows learning basic nine patch, curved piecing, applique and trapunto. I never made a big quilt....but I do collect them and have them hanging all over the walls of our house. They truly are beautiful works of art. Can't wait to see your finished masterpiece!

Mimi Sue said...

Such a gorgeous quilt. I love them both. I can't seem to get motivated to do anything crafty or sewy right now. I still have Valentine's stuff up. The two weeks in California kind of threw me off. MUST get going tomorrow!! Looks like you guys had lots of fun at TJ Maxx. Mimi

Samantha said...
