Brand New Bag

When I saw this 1/2 yard Alexander Henry Kleo fabric remnant at Joann Fabric for on $1.35(!) I had to buy it! It quickly turned into a bag in my mind and I spent quite a bit of time last week cutting pieces for it and putting it together.

I used this pleated tote pattern as the basis for the bag, but didn't follow everything precisely. I am very pleased with how it turned out and love being able to make myself a new purse that I love for very little money!

First Quilting Attempt

Look What Arrived Today!

Our first fabric since Lent started! Looking forward to making this into pillows, runners, bag holders, and more!!

Odds and Ends

I hope that everyone had a great Easter! We ended up having a nice day at my grandfather's home. Good dinner, Easter egg hunt, and the little one ended up being able to go! She came down with a cold on Saturday, so we weren't sure whether we'd get to go. We did, and I am so glad we did since my grandpa had to go in to the hospital today for some tests. (We knew he had to go in today.)

I got one of these cute little "chocolate" bunnies from PA Country Crafts. I just love it! My daughter loves it too...she had taken it off the piano where it was displayed and put it in with her toys.

I am enjoying Quilting Month II at Sew, Mama, Sew. Using a charm pack we already had, I have been attempting my first quilted project. It is not perfect (at all), but I am really enjoying it. I'll show the finished product (the front at least!) when I get finished.

We have a new plastic grocery bag holder listed in the shop. Mom and I are working on these together, which i…
