September fun!

 I made a quilt with this fabric from a jelly roll and had some leftovers. I put together this little baby blanket and I really like it. I am thinking of doing a craft fair in a month or so, not sure, but this would be a nice little one to sell.
I should have taken a close up of this one. The center blocks have pink elephants in and it just turned out so cute! I have a shower next wekend and this new little baby girl is getting this one.
I'm almost done with this top. It just needs some borders to make it a little bigger. It's only about 34 inches wide and I think I would like it a little bigger. I made this pattern many years ago. Its fun and very quick. Not sure how I will quilt it though and thinking about how to use some girl colors and make it again. I also made the centers of 2 more quilts and I will show those when they are done. Helloooo weekend!

Just for Fun!

I am so blessed to have 3 wonderful Girls. My oldest has the baby and she is always doing a little something fun! For the baby's birthday Party she made this really cute chalkboard that sat on the mantle with flowers and a picture. It was way too cute and I thought it would be fun to show it.
My Youngest daughter is now employed and living and working from home. An old chair was transformed by her this afternoon in just about an hour and I love it. Way to go girl!

Oh what crazy days I have had! The school year start has been a bit crazy and I have managed to sew almost very day but only a little. My blogging,,,not so much. But, I am ever so grateful I have my sewing to help those crazy days come to a small little stop while I piece a few fabrics together and feel calm and happy. I have pieced together and quilted this cute little lap quilt. I bought the fabric on sale in Ohio and am pleased with how it came together. The thread I used to quilt it matched and blended so well I had trouble seeing where I had been. The mistakes were made because I couldn't tell where I had already sewn! I just need to add the binding Yay!

I made up a few flannel blankets as well. They will be passed out as gifts this month.
My adorable grand daughter turned 1 and had a little party at my house with just family and I had some fun making some koozies for a final swim party. They turned out pretty cute. The guests liked them too and took them home.
I should have taken pictures of them around the water, beer and soda!! They look better there!
