Saying goodbye!

It's time to say goodbye to an old friend!
 I think I made about 8 or 10 of these little must have been 12 or 15 years ago. They travelled all over the country making their way to some friends and family! For myself, I kept a blue bag and a brown bag. The blue bag was gone years ago and now it's time to say goodbye to the brown one.
It's had a good life though! It's carried quilting things, library books and lunches and it's travelled allover by car and air...and so I say goodbye to my faithful bag companion and ...
..I realize this gives my the perfect reason to make a new bag!!!
I finished my snowman! He is so cute. I'm hoping to make a few more before Christmas!
And, another quilt top is finished! I am happy with the results but I am REALLY tired of brown!
I know have a backlog of three quilt tops to machine quilt so I better start collecting backings.
Happy Stitching!

Oh No!

Although I've been busy quilting away on my applique quilt, I am NOT going to get it done for the quilt show at the end of April...especially now...a finger injury... on my thimble finger..
I've just started the borders and there is a lot more work than I thought!
And I would rather enjoy the process than rush through it.
There is always another quilt show...
I have been working on a few other things as well. I am needle punching this cute snowman for a Christmas gift (yes, I am already making presents) Don't look to close - it's the back and I am MESSY! The fun thing about needle punch is that you can get something done fast.
And this quilt is ready to start putting the rows together.
After this is done I am ready for a challenge.
And a weird thing happened. I dropped my scissors and this is how they landed!
Now that just doesn't happen every day so I thought I'd better record it in history!
Happy Stitching!
