My Little Penguin Bag

This is a little Penguin Bag I made using a design from Embroidery Garden.  He is made out of a really cool black fabric I found....the white is Minky...the purple is a fur like fabric someone sent me because they know I like purple.  This little guy really turned out cute and I just love him.  He will be on his way to my niece Deanna, this afternoon.  She loves purple also...BUT the really exciting thing is....my little purple penguin ended up being featured on the Embroidery Garden website.  I am so excited and proud to see him there.  Go have a look.


Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving...it was just me and Hubby...so it was nice and quiet.

Happy Monday everyone!

I have something to share

Two posts in one day...a miracle!

I have something totally cool to share.  The above quilt was made by my Granddaughter Michelle.  Now I am sure you are asking yourself what is so special about it....well I am going to tell you.  A couple of month's ago...Michelle decided she wanted to sew....I found a machine for her, sent it to her...sent her some you tube videos...she did some research on her own and ended up making this wonderful quilt, without ever having turned on a machine in her life!  She had lots of trials and tribulations along the way and almost gave up a couple of time....I am so glad she didn't, because look what she created...this is using no pattern...no idea how to cut fabric..how to use a rotary cutter...nothing!  She just went for it and I am so proud of her I could bust! Can anyone see a mistake in it NO!  All I can see is a wonderful quilt that when it is finished....something she can be totally proud of!!!

Great Job Michelle!  You rock!!!

Hope you all leave comments to encourage her to make more wonderful projects like this.

Design Wall Wednesday

I have wanted a Sunbonnet quilt for as long as I can remember and was just to lazy to make one...however I started one sometime ago and it is now almost complete.

Somewhere in my brain I decided to do this on point!  I have no idea what I was thinking, but there you have it.  I am not sure I will ever do another one this way, but then again you never know what the mind will do.  I still have to decide on a final border...I am thinking a solid, but I may just take the border that's on there now off and redo it too.  I may have to consult with my quilt guru (Pat) and see what she has to say.  I want this to fit my queen sized bed so it is going to be a large quilt.  I was going to do the quilting on it, but I am thinking maybe not now.  So as you can see I am very decisive about this quilt!  It was fun...I learned a lot about my skills and hopefully it will be completely finished in the next couple of months.

Later gators...
