Finishes...

I made a few things last week but wasn't able to show them before now.  They were received today...gifts to my sisters. 

First up...I made a double-zipper bag (it's actually the LOVE Zipper Bag by Sweetwater) for my sister, Joyce.  Gave it to her as a thank you gift.  She flew to Colorado (from Maryland) to play nurse to Jill, my baby sister, who had a total knee replacement.  Nurse Joyce will be there for two weeks.  Purple is Joyce's favorite color, so I made it in purple...though I think it shows here as more blue.  The little patch is also from Sweetwater and reads, 'Life is good'... 

Next...more kleenex cozies!  I thought they might make nice little gifts for Jill's PT gal and the visiting nurse.  And, anyone else Joyce and Jill might want to give one to.




It looks like we are going to have some sunshine and warmer temps here this next week.  Hallelujah!  I am so tired of cold and gray days...am so looking forward to Spring.

It is Daylight Saving Time tonight (technically, tomorrow a.m. at 2:00...like I'm gonna get up then and change my clocks?)! 

I hope to work on doll clothes this next week...need to fill up my Etsy shop.  With Spring right around the corner, visions of spring/summer dresses and outfits are running around in my head.  Poor Cassidy Jane...she has been whining about having only one outfit.  Not like the ones I sew will be for her , but at least she'll be able to try them on and model them for me.  ~grin~

Enjoy the weekend.

Stitching On Snow Days...

I am actually following my plan and getting some stitching done in the evenings whilst sitting in front of the tv! 

I told you that there were mostly tree branches that needed to be drawn/extended onto the pieced blocks.  And, that's exactly what I've been drawing...tree branches!  It's much more difficult, though not impossible, to trace these lines through colored fabric than it was to trace through Kona Solid in Bone.  I am getting it done...though stitching lines that I cannot see is definitely a first!  Good thing no one else will know exactly where those stitched lines should be, hey?  ~grin~

It does make a huge difference in the look of this project.

Here is the 'before' photo of block 14...

And, here is the 'after' photo...



I am in love.  Course, I have been since I started this project 4 years ago.  I guess I forgot how much. 

Tomorrow is Friday...according to the weather people, we're in for some warmer (30's+) temps!  woohoo!!
