Hey ...
My father-in-law needed a new tool case for his wrench set.

Here's the old one and the new one:

Sewing on Sunday

  So you inspired me to actually work on some projects. I have five wedding quilts to work on so I guess I should get moving.  We started work on Oralee's project and it's looking good.  Here's some pics of some recent finishes.
This is Doug and Colleen's wedding quilt for July.  Doug's a friend of Mr. Her from university.  It's the strawberry marmalade tutorial that I had on my list from last year and it's made of scraps from Tenille's quilt.
    Next, are a couple of iphone cozies that I crocheted to keep iphones from getting dirty in your purse.
  Finally , there's a learning experience that I think will be an ugly car quilt.  The front wasn't what I wanted so I just backed it on some fleece (which stretched- of course).

    Can't wait to see more of your Barn Dance quilt.

Barn Dance

I haven't done much sewing today but I did get a second star made:

Sewing on Saturday!!

So instead of finishing one of the many started projects I have sitting in the to do pile, I started another today!! I started 'Barn Dance' by Vanessa Christenson!

I'm using up all of the Hometown fabric scraps that I have to make it!

Here's what I've got done so far:

This is the top left hand square on the quilt.  I'm going to work on the right hand top corner next!! I sure am glad I bought the Wonder Cut Ruler.  It's so easy to make half square triangles now and quick too!!

I found another pattern that I really like:
I love the colours in it!  It's made with Moda solids.  It would be great using almost any colours or as a scrap quilt!!  I might have to order this when it comes out in the April/May magazine!!

What have you been up to lately?

Another cowl...

I finished another cowl! It's from a pattern on Ravelry called the black hole cowl. It was really easy and quick to make.

I like this Bernat Softee Chunky yarn that I got at Wal-Mart. This is the second colour choice that I've used and really like! I may have to search online to see what other colours I can find!

What have you been up to lately??

I need to work on self portraits!!
