Special Request Purse #1

This Christmas Poinsettia purse was a special request by a friend.
I shipped it out yesterday.



Two more special orders and then on to Christmas projects.

Enjoying this beautiful weather - hope you are too!

Pumpkin Patch is empty......

This pumpkin was a special order for a friend at work.
She provided some of the fabrics.
The picture doesn't show it but the black blocks with
pumpkins and candy corn contains glitter.
Love the special added touch of the sparkle.

2 pumpkins were made and added to 
2 leftover from the craft sale to make a set of 4.   


These will be shipped to Florida tomorrow. 

Of course, I kept the first pumpkin I made for myself.

Now on to some special request purses and 
finally to Christmas projects!

Enjoy your day!

Pumpkin mini-quilts

Yes, I've gone a little crazy with the pumpkin mini-quilts.
These measure approx. 18" X 15".
Just the right size to display on a table, door or wall.





The back of each mini-quilt is pre-quilted muslin.
The free-motion quilting shows up nicely.


Back to the sewing machine :)

4 Bags and a Pumpkin Mini-Quilt

This weeks work resulted in 4 bags for the missions fundraiser.

Smallish purple and gray chevron bag with snap closure 
and detachable rolled rose detail.

Gray, black and wine plaid bag is a little bigger than the chevron 
and also has a snap closure.


 This large tote bag is very sturdy and reversible. 
Great for an overnight bag, kid stuff, needlework or even office work

Another large, sturdy tote bag.  
It stands alone nicely so has lots of potential.

The sunset shown in the blog banner was 
the inspiration I needed to kick this project in gear.
I'm really loving the result so will probably keep it for myself.
This quilted pumpkin mat is the size of a large placemat. 

I'd love to make more of these, but don't have many scraps in these colors.
If time permits, I know I can do one more, but I'm trying to eek out 2.

This project was a nice diversion since I have depleated most of the
essential supplies needed in bag making and I'm waiting to get a good deal
at a local fabric store this weekend.



Stay tuned....this cooler, wet weather is great for sewing.
