Happy Wednesday!

I wanted to show you all a close up of my latest 1 hour FQ Tote that is going to Dawn, the winner of the Sewing Summit Loot giveaway. I really like this one. Frankly, I'm having a little trouble giving it up.  But I said I would, and I will.

I began to use this one to write the tutorial, but had a little glitch and forgot to take pictures of the final couple of steps.  Guess that's what I get for working on it late at night.  If it's not too confusing, when you read the tute, you may see the fabrics change in the final steps.



Here is a view of the inside.  I really like how the fabrics work together without being matchy-matchy.  And it's a great size to carry everywhere.  I use the one I made myself at Sewing Summit a lot.

And look what came in the mail the other day.  I registered for a giveaway from Delish Magazine, an online e-zine, and I won this cute little book.  I have only had a brief chance to flip through the book, but some of these projects look really fun.  I plan to give a few of them a try very soon.

And I have to make a couple of items for the local guild booth at the Arts Festival.  What do you think of this Christmas tree skirt?  It is leftovers from a Flurry jelly roll by Kate Spain.

And I made a pair of stockings to go with it.  The cuff is leftover from BD#2's pillow that we made last New Year's.  Jelly rolls are so amazing.  I am always just blown away by all the things you can do with them.





And since I had the camera out, I finally got around to taking pictures of my new pot holders from Leila in Potholder Pass 9.  The theme was houses, and she stalked me well enough to know that my kitchen is blue and yellow.  Too cool.  Now I can get rid of some of the unsightly things that have been living in the drawer for 20 years - you know, the ones with burn holes and stains?  Yeah, those.

Anyway, that's what's going on today in my neck of the woods.  Thanks for dropping by.
