Bag contest entries.....

I made 2 bags to enter in the 5th Annual Fall 2010 Hand Bag Contest at Old Trail Fabric's in Selinsgrove. The rules allow for submitting 3 bags, but my 3rd bag isn't finished yet.

The striped one is a shoulder bag/purse, with a snap closure. The ribbons can be untied to allow the bag to expand.

Lots of pockets inside, 3 slip and 1 zippered....

The purple 'retro' fabric bag is a super-sized tote with rick-rack trim. Big enough for a weekend away....oh how I wish :)

Also with 2 slip pockets and a divider....

The contest ends Saturday, so I'm dropping mine off tomorrow.
Wish me luck!

A Quilt for "Grandma"

My best friend is going to be a Grandma soon. I just had to make her a quilt 'cause that's how I celebrate! :)

This is an extra special quilt, it is made from the scraps of the signature quilt I made for her daughter and son-in-law's (the soon-to-be parents) wedding. The original quilt patches were signed as a guest book and then assembled into a memory quilt. So this new quilt commerates the marriage and the new baby!

(The wedding guest book, memory quilt.)

Thanks for stopping by!
