Embelishment Mania

   I went to the holiday (Labor Day) tent sale at the craft shop like
                       I always do & I only planned to pick up some buttons for a BOM I'm working on.
   But when I started looking in the bin for the right ones, all these other ones were just begging to be picked.
I could not resist.  In my head I had a use for each & every pack I put in my little basket.
Actually I had about twice this many .... then I started to eliminate, it was hard to do, .but I hadn' hit
the fabric shop yet soooooo I only took these 18 packs home.

Next I went down the road a little ways to the fabric shop.  They had a holiday sale as well.
I found these:

Hope to use a few of these in some new blocks I've started.
The gold one is for a long lost UFO I can now finish.

Also found some cute flannels  to make some
cuddly raggedy quilts.

Picked out a raggedy patterns with diamonds and one with stars
to use with these instead of the usual squares.
Now I can't wait to get started .

Baby Bear Quilt

                                          This is the 3rd & last of the baby quilts. At least for now.
                              It was supposed to be a bears on parade quilt, but changed my mind and made my
                              own scrappy pattern.  Baby Jacob is due to enter the world about Sept.19th so I
                              finished just in time. He is the first boy in the family so I used lots of blues.
                                         Now I can work on those UFO's again Or start something new .....
                                              yah...... that sounds like a plan

Dresses for the Wedding

Just finished the granddaughters dresses for My daughters wedding.
So glad they are finally done. Had a bit of a setback trying to find the right color ribbon to match the other brides maid dresses, but finally settled on a color after several other choices. 
Was that darn OCD of mine kicking in again, lol, had to have it right or keep on trying.
The girls look so cute in them. Can't wait for the wedding, only 25 more days.
Will post more pics after the wedding.
