WOW!! I just sold a quilt!! One of the volleyball moms saw a quilt I was using at a tournament and said she really liked it and before I knew it offered to purchase it. I will post pictures but it is a pink/gray quilt that I made using the pattern from Oh,Fransson's site-ohfransson.com.It is the modern quilt pattern-she had a quilt along that I missed but I did make the quilt. In fact I have made two using the same pattern and I am not crazy about either one of them. I love the pink and gray fabric but do not like how it is machine quilted and do not like the rust fabric that I picked for the other one at all. Do not know what I was thinking.
I don't sell very much so when I do have a sale it is cause for celebration! It gives you that boost of confidence to keep creating.

Tooth Fairy Bag

I am listing these sweet little tooth fairy bags on my etsy site-fabricfriend. My BFF Cindy make these for a show we sere hoping to get into last fall. The show ran out of spaces so here they are. Not sure were the pattern came from or if she thought it all up on her own but they are CUTE!!!

They are hand-stitched and made of felt. The top has a small casing for the all natural cotton drawstring. The little tooth on the front is just big enough to hold a small tooth. The tooth fairy comes along,takes the tooth and leaves a little something extra behind. Great way to start a new tradition in your family or in the family of someone you love. Makes a great shower gift!

I love the colors of these fabrics. The solids are Kona and the prints are Kate Spain.

These are the fabrics for the filmstrip quilt I started and made Friday. I did not use all the fabrics so I will need to make something else. I really love the mushroom looking trees. I will post pictures before to long

New Quilt

This is the quilt that I finished for my oldest niece for Christmas. Yes-I am ahead of the game but I have three to make so one down and two to go. this is a Chinese coin quilt and I will be shipping it off to have it machine quilted at Stover Quality Quilting.

Flea Market Finds

Here are a few pictures of goodies I found while I was out.

The red box has a place to put pencils-I'm pretty sure I am going to paint it white and the blue box looks like a wood shop project-also painting it white. The bird picture is for my May Day swap partner and I love Pyrex. the Saint Candle is a nice addition to my collection and a sewing basket with a built in thread holder!!!
