Hello all you wonderfully crafty people out there!! For some reason, I'm feeling extra sassy today. Maybe because it's so beautiful outside or maybe it's cuz I'm wearing a new dress today. Whatever it's fabulous!!

Initially I thought the Ad-Sense thing was a good idea.....putting some advertising on my blog. But I think it's a pain in the neck!! I don't like having to dig through a page to find what I'm looking for. So I took it off.

Anyhoo, I've had a tote of UFO projects for what seems like FOREVER! I needed the space for new UFOs so I finally finished a few of the wall hangings........................

The hearts don't go with this.....I just hung them there till I find a better home for them.

I'm hoping to work on more UFOs this weekend but the weeds in my backyard have decided they want to take over my garden. That may be my weekend project instead. Sigh.

Projects Completed!!

Somehow I found the time to finish three tops, two bags and a wristlet this the heck did that happen? Well, however it happened........YIPPEE!!! Now I can add some new projects to my list of stuff to do.

I raided my stash for this one. I got the pattern from Quick Quilts.....not sure if I'm going to put the outer border on it or not. I kinda like it the way it is.

I bought this blue/brown fabric from Joann's the other day. I didn't have a project in mind but thought it was really pretty (doesn't everyone buy fabric that way?). If you look closely, the dark brown fabric swirls actually say 'coffee'. This will make a super cute table topper.

Last, but not least, it this top from 'Hooked on Charms 2'. Originally I was going to use multiple charm packs to make a bigger top but I didn't pay attention when I was cutting and ended up making it smaller than the pattern. Oh-me-oh-my why do I do such things?
But I did have a couple extra squares so I made this little hot pad (or whatever).
This little bag and wristlet went together super quick.
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Post-Holiday!

I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend. Ours was very relaxing. Our neighbor's had a block party on the fourth so we walked over in the evening to watch the fireworks. They really do a fantastic job!

I didn't get a whole lot done last week.....but I did get the tent scrubbed for our camping trip. It was a mess!! And I did get our camping t-shirts finished!! Woo-hoo!! We started creating family camping t-shirts a couple of years back and everyone seems to like the idea. Someday, when I have enough of them, I'm going to make a t-shirt quilt. I haven't made one and I've seen some really creative ones so I'm excited to make one of my own. Anyway, this year's shirts were a big hit.
Last night I worked on some UFO's. I'm on a bag-craze right now. They're super fun and super quick to make!! I'll try to get some pics up soon of them.
Toodles for today! Thanks for stopping by!

Back from Vacation

It's been a while since I posted (what else is new) but I have a really good reason.....I went on vacation for 10 days!!! And it was absolutely glorious! Our base site was a funky little campground in Lewiston, CA. We had six RV sites for all of us and only one other RV showed up while we were there so we had the run of the place. The weather was absolutely beautiful and the riding was spectacular!!

This is me waving to the camera.....I wonder.....are they many other quilting gals out there that ride also? Maybe we should start a club!!

Me and Big Foot hangin' out.
I even got to visit two quilt shops.....the first was Textile Traditions in Weaverville, CA. A really cute shop but unfortunately the owner was packing up to head to a quilt show so the place was a little bare. The next was The Sewing Room in Redding, Ca. They have a crafter's mall there also but again, a really cute shop. You need to take some serious time to go through this place. There's tons to see!
I finished my quilt for our RV.......I LOVE this fabric! And it looks adorable with the pillow cases I finished a couple of weeks ago.

I'm still waiting for Scott's Crown Royal quilt to come back from the quilter. I'll post those pics when I get it back and put the binding on.
Guess that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by!
