Weekend of Finishes

Sandra, you signed up for the Stitchery Swap today and I tried to send you an email twice and it bounced back. Please send me your snail mail address so I can include you on the list.

I had a weekend of finishes. Yesterday I finished the binding on my Pink Finity Quilt. Today I finished the binding on my last Pay It Forward gift. They will be going out in the mail this week.


I finished the stiching on my F is for Fairy block from Bobby Socks this morning. This is the first month I'll be able to start the block for that month. I have the G is for Gingerbread block prepped and ready so I can start working on it tomorrow morning on the way to work.


Since I've had 5 finishes on projects this past week I treated myself to a quick project and made myself a small purse using some of the charms from one of the Connecting Threads new fabric packs. I liked working with the fabric. It's soft, sews up nice and looks wicked cool as a purse.


The purse got a quick workout tonight. I think it needs a closure of some kind. DH, being the smart man he is, says I need to find a magnetic snap for it. So now I have an excuse to go to Joanne's this week.

Only nine more work days and one weekend left before vacation. I'm getting so excited. I can't wait to get to Oregon!

Nicely done on your finished. The pink quilt looks lovely. Your Fairy block is sweet and I like the purse. I was wondering about CT's fabrics. Seems like they're coming out with a lot of their own thing. Thanks for sharing!

Great bag! I agree with your DH - magnetic snaps... I only seem to upend my bag when it is one that doesn't close! You are really getting alot of projects done! Love your BIG quilts and the doll quilt was really cute too!

Cheers!

Lots of great finishes. Love the fairy. I have to do a stitchery this month, and I might pick that one. Wouldn't it look cute in a variegated thread?
