Sandi's Tote

I didn't think I would be making another tote so soon but 
my cousin asked if I would make one for her.

She said she liked the darker one I made for Kat and her 
favorite color is green, so this is what I came up with.

I love the retro look of this material and had the thought 
that I may want to keep this and make her another one. 
But I didn't, it's on the way Sandi!

Purple Floral

Another new baby in the family! 
A baby girl!

Her nursery has purple so I went through my stash 
and used almost all the purple I had, then added pieces
 of the backing to add another color into the mix.

I  purchased the backing piece last summer just because
 I loved the colors. It goes very well with the front of the quilt.

This quilt was made to share a room with this dragon quilt
Older brother wanted a quilt for his bed so I made 
him this one using the material I had left.

He loved it and actually jumped up and down when I gave it to him.

He is such a sweet little guy and I am so glad I got to see his reaction. 
It made my day!!!

Bow ties

I made these for my son-in-law for Christmas.

He is an English teacher and wears ties to work every day,
 be mentioned that he would like some bow ties so that is what he got. 

My favorite!

His favorite! Also his favorite color.

And brown for those laid back days!
