She Loves Her Some Purple!

This week went by really fast and I didn't get too much accomplished.  Two things that I started were non-finishes, as they were not turning out as I wanted.  That is always a disappointment for me.  ~sigh~

But, I did get a 24" pillow cover done for sister Joyce.  I wrote a post a bit ago talking about how we chose the fabrics via FaceTime...Joyce in Maryland with me here in Wisconsin.  Click here to see that post.

It's bright, so put your sunglasses on!  


I finished the backing with a zipper's there hiding under the little flap where the purple butterflies join the lime green.  Very easy to do that type of closure...will do it more often.

I had a little bit of leftover fabric, so made some Kleenex cozies for Joyce.  I am sure there are some in Maryland who do not yet have one.  ~grin~

The package arrived at Joyce's house today...she is very pleased with her new pillow cover and excited to have more Kleenex cozies, too!  

I have been trying to develop something new, but am having a bit of difficulty with it right now.  I really want it to work out, so I'll keep working at it.  In the meantime, there are more projects waiting to be completed.

For those of you in need of a Tag fix...

Tag and I spent a lovely morning in bed one day this week.  For no particular reason.  Tag snoozed while I read.  (oh look!  Four quilts on the bed.)   

Have a great Sunday!

Mmmm... a day in bed reading sounds soooooo relaxing! Tag looks like he agrees too! :-)
The pillow cover and cozies are pretty!

Lots of beautiful quilts and nice gifts for the family. I fell short this year, so planning on working all year, this year;) I love the star quilt, is that a buggy barn pattern? I know I have star quilt patterns and I have flannels I want to use, might be a good idea to piece them.

Oh I love seeing Tag. He just brings such a smile to my face. I hope he's feeling much better now. He is so sweet. The best thing in the world is sleeping a little late in the morning with your best friend! Bruno and I do that too. Just love these boys!!!
