More odds and ends today. I have several projects that are ready for quilting and binding and will get those posted one of these days.... you know how that goes.
This is a little zipper bag that I made for a birthday gift last month. My friend likes anything pink.
This is a little fabric basket that I made this afternoon. It's a free Craftsy pattern called 1 Hour Basket Tutorial. I'm thinking it took me an hour and a half...but then I'm pretty slow. It was quite easy and once you've made one, the next ones probably would be easily completed in one hour. This is a great size to hold a bunch of FQ's.
A little stash acquisition. These yummy fabrics came from Missouri Quilt Company. If you haven't already signed up.... they have a daily deal that is pretty inexpensive. I don't remember now, but this charm pack was probably $1 or $2. The catch is... and this isn't much of a catch.... they have a flat rate shipping cost of $5. This still brings it in much less than the normal price of a charm pack, plus you can add other fabrics and goodies to this same shipping price. They have fabulous service.
More stash acquisition.... This time from Shabby Fabrics, another one of my favorite shops. They had a wonderful sale of Tim Holtz fabrics for $5 a yard. I just love his style and picked up several fabrics. This is another shop with fabulous service and products!
And lastly..... and the best.... I picked up this little lady on Ebay. As always, I was looking for a bargain and I found one. Not sure why I was the only bidder but I was thrilled to win this sweet children's machine. It came with the original instructions as well as the table clamp. And this may make you wince.... it came with the original box too.... but I tossed it. I know.. you always keep the original box but this one was in horrible shape. One side was almost completely chewed off by some sort of rodent and the other sides weren't much better. It had to go!
So there's a little update to let you all know that I'm still out here. I'm not sewing as much as I would like, but I am nipping away at one thing or another. Stay tuned.......
