|This is my first finished project for Stashtactular|
I have been so busy trying to get my Knotted
Squares quilt top finished up so that I would
maybe have time to do some of the tutorials
This bag tutorial is posted over at Blue Bird Sews
fly on over there and check it out! It was super
easy and quick too.
|I made it up this evening after work :)|
Here is the bag all folded up into the pocket that you
attach to the outside of the bag!
Its great because you can toss it into your
purse,so you have it whenever you need it.

Thank you sooo much Stephanie :)
It is way too cute and I love it :0)

|Every month Annie over at Rubby Slipperz hosts a giveaway|
called FYPC (finish your project challenge)
Imagine my surprise when she emailed me to say that I was the
winner for the month of June!
What I won was a $30.00 gift card to Crazyquiltgirl fabric shop :)
The only problem,I took a pledge Not to purchase Any Fabric during
the stashtactular month long event!!!
So instead of waiting to use my gift card I purchased the above patterns
instead. (so I can use up some of the fabric I already own)
|In May I joined up with FairyFace Designs to do a summer|
projects list. Here is my Mid-Summer update.
These are the apple squares that I planned to make coasters
out of,all finished.
|Sprocket pillows were another project on my list.|
Here they are all finished. These were very fun to make
and I plan on making more in the future.
|Next is my Max & Whiskers quilt.|
| I wanted to take a picture of|
it outside today,but it was raining. So here is a close-up of part
|This is the last finished project.|
The Zippy Strippy bags/pouches.
These were also fun to make,except for adding the zipper!
I also finished a whole lot more that was not on my list. If you remember
that I recently had a booth at a craft sale. Most of the things that I
took to sell I made this last month also!
The only thing that was on my original "List" that I haven't yet
finished is the Abby Bag. So not to shabby for only being Mid way
Guess I need to make another List for the remainder of the summer :)
Coming up soon!
Linking up to FairyFace Designs Mid-Summer check in.

|Remember the fabric in my giveaway?|
Well today was the day to pick a winner...
And the Winner is...
Kitten With a Whiplash
Thank you to everyone who entered :)
|So here is my test sunflower.|
Not to bad for a first try,however my steam a seam is 12 inches
wide and my sunflower is 16 inches from tip to tip. Also the center
is to small.
