I have so many wonderful projects to show you that I finished this weekend:) That's what I love about three day weekends....especially this one where I had not a single committment, except for church yesterday morning. I had time to clean, organize, play with Miss S, hang out with hubby, and craft to my little heart's content...other than that blasted headache that I had yesterday. But I worked through the pain and have lots to show off!! And probably a record number of posts in one day:)
A fresh pile of tissue holders. I love to have these on hand for little gifts and goodies.
I'm going a little doll quilt crazy. Though mostly cause I'm trying to use what I have and not necessarily that I am jumping on the doll quilt bandwagon:) In 1999 I participated in a Y2K swap where you sent 25 - 2.5 x 2.5 inch squares to enough partners until you had 2000 different squares. These squares have been sitting in a beautiful Longaberger basket ever since:) I had grand plans for a huge quilt that showcased them all but I know that will never happen so I've decided to make a bunch (and I mean a whole bunch) of little quilts with them. These ones will all be presents for various loved ones.
I am SO pleased with how this little friendship one turned out - I had been told by several people that you can't print fabric on a laser printer. After a little more research it turns out that you CAN print fabric on a laser - it just is not washable. Well, this is going to be a wall hanging so it doesn't need to be washable. I love the look of the "honor" that I embroidered above, but I love the laser printed "friendship" too - there are so many possiblities for both! I have 4 more tops pieced and ready to be finished.
And what's Memorial Day without a little slip n slide action with Miss S trying out her new swimsuit:)
