Making Progress...

Thought I'd show some of what I've been doing lately.  My Mom's Birthday was a couple of weeks ago, so of course my sisters and I took her out to lunch and I presented her with these little beauties:





Mom's stitching room is yellow and her favorite color is blue, and I made this gift completely from my stash.  Boy does that feel good.  Get an idea, start and finish without leaving the house.  I say "stitching room" rather than sewing room because she hand-pieces and hand quilts everything.  She makes some beautiful quilts.  I'll have to bring my camera over and take some pictures to show.

I found the tutorial for the cubes at Crazy Mom Quilts.  I'm sure I will be making more of these.  I love Amandajean's tutorials.  They are always easy to read and well pictured.  If you haven't been to her blog yet you can check it out here.

I've been working on my first tutorial, a small project, which is almost done.  Man!  I never realized how much work they are and I now have a renewed appreciation for them.  Here's a peek:



Saturday I was able to dust off the embroidery unit for my machine.  I'm thinkin' these diaper cloths came out pretty cute.  I have coordinating fabric to go with each design.  I'm not sure what's going on with the panda there....his belly doesn't look like that in person.



Feels good to make progress on your WIPs!

Don't forget about my giveaway!  It's my very first so check it out here.  Drawing will be Friday.

Have a great week!

Until Next Time,
