|First up is this little owlie bag that started out as a quilt block|
which you can check out here
Last night I decided that it was going to be a bag,so set about
making that happen.
The inside is a dark brown herb fabric,I know that herbs and owl's
have nothing in common,but that was the only dark brown fabric
in my stash. There is also a pocket inside,that will hold a cell
phone or keys or whatever.
This would make a great bag for taking a smaller craft/sewing
project with you on the go :)
|Next up,something that has been on my "want to make"list for|
a while now.
Love how both this and the one below turned out :)
Although I still have plenty of room for improvement in the
That being said,I am improving.

|Friday,yesterday,was one week since he came to live with us :)|
When we let him out of the carrier he bolted for the nearest hiding
place! Which was behind the furnace,when he finally ventured out
he then darted behind the refrigerator.
|However,he decides when,and then jumps down and runs and|
He is a little cutie tho,and I am sure that he will eventually
stop running and hiding!

I made last night. It turned out better than the first one,below.

This one will be going to live with my daughter soon.
So Sweetie,act surprised when you get it! Wink,Wink ;)

We still have about 4 or 5 left from last year to use up before
we dig into these.

|If you are a regular follower of my blog you probably know that|
I joined the Sew Bee Blissful quilting Bee.
October is my month to be the queen bee!
(excited & nervous about that)
Anyway I have been going bug-eyed looking at quilt blocks
trying to decide what block to have my bee mates make for me.
The owl block above is the one that I am leaning toward. I found a
free tutorial at Buzzing and Bumbling for it!
Sew,what do you think?
I had to piece this first one together as I didn't quite understand
the instructions completely. Then realized my mistake after cutting
out the pieces,that should have been one piece!
My next block will be correct :) I didn't want to throw away
fabric,so decided to piece this one.
Now I just have to figure out how much fabric to send each of my bee mates!

|A friend of mine brought me a bath towel a couple|
weeks ago,and asked me to make her a curtain for
her back door window.

of the towel to add a little pizazz!
She was quite happy with it.
My still have the weekend to enter my giveaway !
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend :)
