Wonky House Pillow

Finished the wonky house pillow. I really enjoyed making it. I machine quilted each house, around the bird and the grass. I made an insert pillow by pulling the stuffing out of a new Walmart bed pillow. Much cheaper than a bag of fiberfill. I should have put a zipper in the back, but I took the lazy way out and went with a horizontal envelope back. Next time!

Leaving for Oahu tomorrow to visit my daughter and four grandchildren. Her husband is deployed and could use a break. Grandma to the rescue. Will be gone for two weeks - we have some fun stuff planned.

Wall Hanging & Roxy Shoulder Bag

The bag was made from a PDF I bought and downloaded last year. I was looking for the right lining fabric and coincidentally found it in my stash. You can get the pattern here - it is called "Roxy Shoulder Bag".  Very easy to make - I have enough fabric to make another one.

I wanted to make a wall hanging using words. Free pieced from the book Word Play Quilts, I think. Too lazy to get up and look for it. I also made another Three Stooges cell phone case but forgot to take a photo before I sent it off to the customer.

Down With Shingles

I have been down with shingles. Very painful, if you have not had shingles, I suggest you go and get the shot. It doesn't prevent it, but it won't be as bad. I am into week two of this mess and will be so glad when the horrible outbreak is gone around my ribcage to the front. Itches like crazy. I have been working on a little wall quilt and another quilt as you go lap project for me. Hope you all had a nice Valentine Day!!
