Notepads I made

I have been quite busy mostly sewing so haven't posted in a few weeks.  Here are 2 of my recent projects - notepads I sewed using 2 fat quarters.  They hold 1 notepad, pen and cell phone.  Super easy to make.  I used the one that holds 2 phones at work all week to keep everything out of my lab coat pockets.

It is that time of year again - the 5th Annual My Favorite Things Retreat.  Here are the 4 cards we made yesterday afternoon using mostly sponging techniques.  I have been able to attend every retreat and they just get better and better,  Had a great Mexican dinner compliments of Kim the owner of MFT.  Cannot wait to see what else they have in store for us.

Aviation quilt

Here is the aviation themed Slice of Life quilt I finished up in March.  The easiest quilt to put together,  No corners to match.  I put it on the futon in my sewing/quilting/office room.

Dress form Repurposed

I have had this dress form in my craft room full of ribbon but saw this idea today on You Tube.  What a great idea to hold all my good scissors and small rotary cutter,  Looks so cool in my "sewing" room.

Feed Sack bag

I finally finished my first bag ever - a Feed sack bag using part of a jelly roll of fabric.  It is lined inside.  I am sure the next one will be easier to make now that I know what I am doing.

Mini Runners

I whipped up a couple of small runners based on the 15 minute table runner pattern I have used in the past.  These are much smaller  and will brighten up my craft room and only took about 10 minutes each to make.

Pinkerton - Collage Quilting Class

I had such a fun day with Judy at the Collage Quilting class in Plant City.  I will post a few pictures of the day and as I work on my collage quilt over the next few weeks/months.  The dress form is one of the future projects I plan on doing.  The other 2 photos are the beginning of "Pinkerton" my pink flamingo.

Bible Journaling

Do you like to color?  I just finished the inside cover of my Inspire Bible using some inexpensive twist colored pencils.  I am not a fan of the pencils but am happy with the outcome overall.

Inspiration Showcase

I finally finished a project I have been working on from an on-line class called Inspiration Showcase.   The class was taught by Jennifer McGuire and featured multiple techniques to use on cards,  I am so happy with how it turned out,  Each little heart is a different technique,  Such a fun on line class.

Aviation Slice of Life Quilt

It is finally done - my aviation themed Slice of Life Quilt.  This was a kit from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.  The pattern was so easy to do - nothing to match up perfectly.  I plan on doing another quilt with this design soon.
