Sweet Friday...

May 11, 2012

I am so glad it's Friday!! Russ has been home late all week due to taking a refresher course he is taking on motorcycle safety. The class takes Friday nights off and resumes on Monday. Only a few more late nights to go. =) 

I have no trouble keeping myself busy....I got out my 30's bin and dug around. I had forgotten about these orphan blocks I made with left over HST's last year. After playing around, I settled on this layout and made a small baby/stroller blanket or table topper. All from scraps, which is fun. 

The backing is fabric I bought at an estate sale last year. 

Last week I made a tote bag for a gal at church. It was the first time I put a zippered pocket in a lining for a bag. It was very easy! Don't be afraid to try. You can find a great tutorial on how to do this on Melissa's blog Happy Quilting. 

Please remember to keep Pat and her family in your prayers. This will be a very difficult weekend for them and for the many other mom's who have empty arms due to the loss of a child. 

Thanks, my friends....


  1. Super colors! Does a 30's bin mean that you started them in your 30's or the fabric is from the 30's? You are super motivated, I am so impressed with how fast you are putting things together. I just love the size of this, would be really cute on a table top.

    Happy Weekend!
