New Stuff Made

I have been really, really busy sewing up a storm. My mojo is back! Here are a few things I've made. I have wanted to make stockings for forever and finally made some. Now I'm over that. I've made five and one for the guild. So here you go....
A "Winter Swap" I am in. My stipple quilting is improving.

The delivery one (second from right) is for my guild. Donated fabric and I made the stocking. Last month I made two sets of pillowcases and drawstring bags from it.

Table runner for my sister. The quilt is a throw and I love the colors in it. Don't know the recipient yet. I am making another one using men's shirts and I incorporated the label from the shirts into the quilt. It is in the binding process now. Pictures soon.

I made some much needed pillowcases for my bed. My daughter thinks they are garish, but I like them and that's all that matters. I made two of the purple chair bags, one of each daughter. The other cross-stitched strawberries is a gift, and just in case she reads my blog...going to her.
So not to bore you off to make some cat pillowcases for my granddaughters.

Letty's Bag and Little Zippered Pouch

This is called "Letty's Bag" a pattern by Robin Gallagher. It is huge! You could carry a small child in there. I used Amy Butler for the outside and Kaffe Fasset on the inside. I am going to put this on my Etsy shop as I have no use for it. Check out if you want to purchase.
A gift for someone special going through breast cancer. I found a breast cancer ribbon for the zipper pull. Very easy little bag.

At last - this is what happens when you don't pay attention to what kind of soap you are putting in the dishwasher. DUH!! What a mess. Have a great day!
