KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

Miscellaneous Tuesday


I usually can figure out any pattern and end up with halfway decent results. This was not this case with this zip bag. It was supposed to be more of a pouch but it did not turn out that way.


Once this happened I gave up, ripped out the mess and turned it into a pouch. The strawberry fabric was too cute to waste, not to mention all those Tula Pink ladybugs lined up perfectly.....that will never happen again!


I did also make some more pincushions, I loved fussy cutting these!



Friday my grandson Elliot came over for the day. We played games and did arts and crafts the whole day. We both needed a birthday card and made these colorful little gems.


I am finally able to show you the baby quilt I finished for my niece Jordan who is having a baby in May. We seem to have an endless supply of babies, I love it!

  1. So much fun to make baby quilts. This one is very sweet! You have the skills when it comes to making great looking zip bags. I'm so terrible with anything zippers! Still terrified to try again after all these years.:)
