Checkin' off the list...

A friend asked me to make her this grommet bag a year ago...I'm so happy I finally have it complete!!!



One more project checked off the list...how does the list get so long?!!! (There are so many fun things I want to make!) I'm so thankful for people who have inspired and encouraged me to sew - true gems!

Random fun stuff...

I was just looking over my blog and realized it's been forever since I've posted anything! I have been having loads of fun...some sewing, some traveling, some eating, and lots of brainstorming...

This is sewing!!! Finished my quilt top called "2+ Two" by Colleen Blackwood. Pattern can be found at Stash. This pattern calls for 2 jelly rolls and 2 yards of fabric. I love how this Sweetwater fabric "sun-kissed" turned out with the pattern. It's now all layered together and ready for quilting...can't wait to have some better pics to share!!

Completed a purse...

Travelled to Georgia and North Carolina to see friends and eat some fantastic food at 12 Bones in Asheville, NC.....wow....amazing ribs (and I don't usually eat ribs)! The corn pudding and sweet mashed potatoes were so YUMMY!!!! And I loved cheerwine. Tried sweet tea in Georgia...the waitress thought it was crazy that I'd never tasted sweet tea before!

This is brainstorming....

And yesterday I had the pleasure of trying snow shoeing. I LOVE it! Can't wait to get a pair!!

And the best news...I'm going to Quilt Market in Salt Lake City in May!!! So excited!

Creamed eggs over toast was thoroughly enjoyed this morning with my family. May you and yours have a splendid rest of a wonderful day! Happy Easter...
