Design Wall Monday–April 25, 2016

My friendship group The Cotton Patchers has a birthday block exchange.  At the beginning of the year you decide what you’d like to receive from each of the members.  In return you make a block for others as the year goes on.  Since April is my birthday month I received my blocks last week. 


I asked for ugly Christmas sweater blocks.  I wanted them small so that when I put them together it will make a fairly small wall hanging to hang on my front door.  I know they’re suppose to be ugly Christmas sweaters but they are anything but ugly, they are really, really cute.  I’m still waiting for 2 more then I can start figuring out how to arrange them and start working on the assembly. 

Thank you Cotton Patchers, I love each and every one of them.

Guess Where I’m Going Tomorrow

I had to make a new skirt today so that I’d have it to wear tomorrow.


Can you see??????? Here’s a close-up.


Yup, John and I are headed to Disneyland tomorrow.  It truly is the “Happiest Place on Earth”.  We’re lucky enough to live fairly close so we’re able to take advantage of their Southern California residents pass.  I see a corndog in my future.  Smile

My sister was here last week and spoke at one of my local quilt guilds.  She also taught a hexie class so I thought it was appropriate to share a couple of my hexie projects.

First is a purse I made a while back.  Somehow or another, I had lost the handles for it (they just hooked in to the loops).  I finally got around to buying another set of handles, painting them candy apple red and attaching them.  I also cut out a piece of foam core board to add support and shape to the bottom of the bag.


I’m in the process of making another one and will hopefully be writing a pattern for it. 

I also made a new steering wheel cover.  This is what I made at the hexie class last week and decided my “flower” would look really cute on the front of a steering wheel cover.  The steering wheel cover is also on the to-do list for writing the pattern.

As it told my BFF Marilyn, it turned out really “stinkin” cute.

Design Wall Monday–April 11, 2016

A few weeks ago I showed how I had changed up my Joy Mangano roll-up bag.  I ended up making two of them (so far).  The original became my bathroom accessory bag, holding my comb, brush, tooth brush, etc. while the second one holds my regular sewing supplies.  I love them both.


Are they not the cutest things?
