June Bag Ladies Swap!

This is for My partner in the June Bag Ladies Swap.
The theme was "Summer fruits & Polka dots"
It is a pattern that I have had for Years & never wanted to go there :o)
I guess I am feeling Quite sure of Myself since that One quilting class(Ha-not really!)
but, I did have Fun with this bag & it was Actually very simple to do!
I want one Just like it for my Very own now! I think I have just enough fabric left to make Me one.
Will I ever do it is the Question!!

Humpty Dumpty Mug!

This is the little Cute mug I found at a Yard sale!
I am Hoping that Someone can tell me a little Something about it.
It is about 3 1/2" tall & on the Front it has Humpty Dumpty sitting on his wall. On the back side it is- Tom, Tom, the piper's son.
I thought it was cute & at $.25 Just couldn't pass it up!
I am wondering if it is Old or not-Not that it matters. It is sitting here in My sewing room with me. I will probably throw buttons or some such in it.
If anyone would like to Comment about it-Please do!

Monkey Business!

This is what I received from My partner! It is such a Cute package & so much Fun!
I love all the Goodies but My Favorites are the Sock Monkey & the Monkey Cup!!

This is One of the items I made to send, it is a Sweet little coin purse!

I plan on Making more of these for Etsy & for Myself!

This is the Inside! I just fell in Love with this fabric when I saw it at the Quilt Shop. I even went back for More! It is a Moda fabric, if anyone is Interested.

Denim Reborn

Another swapbot Swap!
This one was Denim Reborn. We had to use Denim to make Something New & Exciting.
My partner is in Okinawa(military) & she does a Lot of sewing, So I thought I would make her this Fun & Funky Sewing bucket!
The jean/denim is in the Inside so She will get the Use of the pockets for Sewing supplies!
I should have made One for Myself :o)

Sweet Treats!

These are My latest creations! We had Our last Quilt class Tuesday night & I made one of these to give to the Instructor with a little Thank you note.
I am sure She has many Pincushions but, I thought she Might like this Sweet Treat.
I will be listing them on My Etsy soon!
And I have so many Other ideas for Pincushions, I will post Pics as Soon as I can.

Quilt Class Update

I am Very Proud of My quilt,if I do say so Myself!!
The main part of the Quilt is finished. The borders & Corner 9-patch squares are Not sewn.(I assembled the quilt for the pic)
I really Love the Colors I chose.
Everyone's quilt (5 classmates)
is so Different from each others, it is Fun to see the Results!
This was Our 6th class-One more to go.
We will be finishing Our borders & learn to do the Binding.
The quilt will be "Throw" size when Completely finished.
I all ready have another Quilt pattern in Mind for My next one :o)
It looks like a Watermelon but, it is done with the Log Cabin pattern.
I believe the Book the pattern is in is "Black Bear Country"
If I can find a Picture of that pattern, I will post a Pic.
