My First Tammy Bags


Oh, where exactly does the time fly?
I have been helping my kiddos finish up
their semester work, helping them study and
squeezing a few hours in of sewing.
I have a few special little girlies who I
did get a couple presents completed for.

It is my very first Tammy Bag. 
Isn't it so cute? 
I just love this Riley Blake material. 
So appropriate for a little girl.
I also finished up another
If you can guess what the recipient of this loves?
Hard to figure out, right?
My niece picked out the material a
couple months back and I was waiting to
work up one of these adorable bags up with it.
I used Aurifil 12 wt. to sew the frame onto
the purse.  It worked like a charm.
Plus the colors that I had used for
my hexagon quilt matched beautiful.
I plan to add a couple lip glosses
and maybe a finger nail polish to each of them.
A great little gift for any age girl.
I know that I will have to make myself
one to put my make-up in.
The pattern was super easy and only took a little
more than a couple hours to whip up. 
The hand sewing took the longest.
(I, of course, cheated a bit
and only hand sewed the purse frame)
They were well worth the time.


Only 18 days left!!!
Back to the Workshop.

Let's Boogie



So glad that you stopped by on this the last day of the Black Tie Boogie!! 
 Thanks to the fabulous Vickie
and the Queen of the Coop Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt
for another great hop! 
 I hope you didn't have your fill of turkey and chickens for Thanksgiving!
How about a little bit more of both?


I found the pattern for the rooster Here.  I made
them pincushions as opposed to the egg
cozies.  They are great
size to set next to my chair
while I do a little hand sewing.



I also decided to crochet a few
place mats for Thanksgiving.  




They were a great addition to our table setting.
You can find the pattern for the turkey Here.
Thanks for stopping by and go
check out these other coop
creations.

The Final Day of For the Boys Hop!! & Giveaway


 I have had nothing but fun during this hop


http://www.sewwequilt.com/


and being your head cheerleader. 


When, I heard that I was going to
cheer this hop, I got busy
right away.


 My boys all love to cook.  So, I decided
that they needed some
nice towels to have for
their kitchen when they get older.


I finished all seven of them.
  I used Aunt Martha's iron on
transfers. 



Then, I decided, I just couldn't stop there. 
 I needed to quilt something up.


I had difficulty just finding the material
that fit the design I had in my head.  
Even the white material
at the quilt shop had bows and flowers in it.
Yuck!!!
All types of little boy and gobs of girl material,
but a very small selection that screamed
 boy teen / tween.
But after an hour of searching,
my son and I had picked
out the material for his
quilt.
 It is another one of my larger quilts that
I have finished.  Measuring
around 80"x 90".  


My son calls it
The Highway to You Know Where Quilt!!
(His exact words)
I guess it depends on which
way the arrow is pointing.
 Hahaha!
I used some straight line quilting with Aurifil
variegated grey #4670.  It blended so well
into the dirty grey looking background.



Well, that is all I finished here, so

super talented ladies and if you missed the other days
