A Whole Lot of Fun…

That is what has been going on around here…FUN!

Working through my list of Works or Projects in Progress… Willow Weave is a flimsy and I love it.  As a reminder, this was a sew-along hosted by Doreen from Aunt Reen’s Place.

I’m hoping to pick up the backing fabric and take it to the long arm quilter’s next weekend.  Can't decide if this will be my summer picnic quilt or a cuddle quilt...hmmm.


I moved on to the list of new projects I wanted to try...

New towels for my daughter's bathroom.

These are from the same design set from Anita Goodesign that I used to make her throw pillows for her new bed.  

Not sure why the color is so different here


I have somewhat of a rooster theme in my kitchen so I test-stitched a rooster design on flour sack material.  I love the design but will either use different colors on the white fabric or use a different color towel.

This is also from Anita Goodesign.


My best friend and I have been hanging out.  Below is a cosmetic bag like the ones I've made several times before.  For whatever reason, my machine has decided it no longer wants to create these fun and easy bags.  So, my friend made this one and I made the little tissue case to match.

The cosmetic bag is from Anita Goodesign and the tissue case is from Pickle Pie.


Speaking of Pickle Pie designs, my best friend and I made her granddaughters each a little 'back-to-school' purse in their favorite colors.  These little bags are completely made 'in the hoop' of the machine embroidery unit and are relatively fast.  I've only made two projects from Pickle Pie but they seem to be well digitized.

What fun have you been having lately?

Willow Weave is beautiful however you decide to use it. It's certainly not too late for picnics and if the weather isn't nice outside...how about an indoor carpet picnic. :o) Machine embroidery really personalizes gifts/projects for friends and family. I love the chicken.

JoAnne said...

I've actually made a few nine-patches! Yeah, I'm sewing again.

Vicky Hunt said...

I would be creating constantly if I had a machine that would do these things! I love ALL your projects. You have been busy my friend. Such a cool idea to personalize the towels...love it! Have a wonderful week.

Blessings, Vicky

Those are lots of fun projects! The quilt is so pretty. It would be great to use up scraps. The blue and white quilt is gorgeous and the quilting is amazing! I love the embroidery pouches. Such pretty projects.

You have been SO busy! creating beautiful gifts. The quilt top is lovely and my mother in law would die for that rooster. I always love seeing what you have been up to.

Your sewing machine and you have been quite busy :) I love those cosmetic bags - very cute. I'm sorry to hear your machine no longer wants to make them :(

And the pillows and towels are fabulous. Enjoy your week, sweet lady!

Yes, I remember that sew along with Doreen. Your quilt is very pretty.
The towels and pillows are so pretty.
I just love the quilt too. Gorgeous!
Great looking rooster too. Amazing what those embroidery machines can do.

Willow Weave is gorgeous, Jeanna! I say picnic quilt! You're getting so good with your embroidery machine, too. The rooster is gorgeous and he's the best kind - he doesn't crow!

You have been a very busy lady. Love how your daughters room is so coordinated. Great job on the towels.

Hi Jeanna! First of all, thank you for visiting me! Next, let me say I love your blog name...made me smile.
Your projects are so cool. Love the rooster as I have a chicken theme too. The tissue holder bag is too cute.

Hello Jeanna, it is so nice to meet you and tour your lovely blog. I found you from a comment that you left on Carl Cook's blog Art and Sand. Carol and I have been blogging sisters for quite a while. I love your embroidery work, your bags and your quilt. We have a lot in common. Please come visit. I am your newest follower, maybe you will decide to follow me back.
Have a wonderful day and like I said, it is great to meet you.
