Sunday Sew -in Results

Sunday was a cold snowy day sooo.....
I had my own little sew -in Sunday afternoon
and these are what I made.
I got the pattern from Karen (busy fingers)
and I've been wanting to make
them since my crocheted towels
are getting a bit worn looking.
I deceided to put 2 loops on the top
instead of one to make them look
like little aprons.  I like they way they turned out.
They go together so quickly .
Made 8 in one afternoon. I plan to make more when I find more cute towels .
Think I'll try adding buttons to some to  make them  like little sundresses.

Books & Things

Scored some great book deals on the net last week
some for reading on the cold winter nights and
these.......for some sewing ...
The Quilting Shortcuts is an older used book but it
 has some great ideas formaking patterns
 and lots of machine quilting patterns to try.
The Machine Quilting Made Easy has many
 techniques I haven't tried yet  like tying a quilt by machine.
I would really like to try that one.

 I also got a few spools of thread and some DMC
Well.... maybe a little more than a few......
At least I won't run out for a while.
With all my fabric and all this thread...
Oh the possibilities........

Little Black Bag

Finally got around to finishing my little black bag.
It was headed to the UFO pile, but it was rescued.
The pretty vintage lace roses really
make the bag stand out .
I think I like this cotton version better than the denim one I made with this pattern.

Heart Sachets

Made some patch work heart sachets
 to share with my girls.
Most have  Fresh linen scent ,some with
 Ocean breeze and a few are Rose scented.
Need some sweet smells of spring in this
long stretch of winter ....
 Can't wait for spring to come when
 everything wakes up from it's winter sleep.
