Last week I had a customer who loved my previous Lipgloss Girls bag and wanted to buy it... well, here is my new one...which I love even more! I sewed the whole of Thursday and Friday (my mom did the embroidery of the lips and glasses). The lace I used is from the rummage sale my mom and I visited in March and the braid I bought in Holland in 2010 - I am so glad I had a opportunity to use it. This is the end result of last weeks post on Mistakes we make... well, how does the saying go : all is well that ends well!
I also managed to finish this mini quilt - my plan was to hand quilt this little one, but the classes are on a Thursday afternoon and I can't make it! So I stitched in the ditch and cross hatched it finished the binding on Friday evening. I wanted it done for Saturday as it was our quarterly Quilters Guild meeting and since I want to present it as a workshop, my example had to be done. I LOVE these feedsack prints!
Well, my prize from OPAM 2012 arrived in the mail on Saturday - thanks Peg! I am in need of a bookmark, as my current one is the pamphlet of how to use Mandy wax strips! The bag has three beautiful stitcheries, another OPAM in the making???
Finally, I quilted this quilt yesterday. My mom and I made it in December for a friend of ours who is turning 60 soon. She bought a lot of fabric a few years ago but never got into quilting, so we decided to make her a quilt from all her own fabric. All that we bought was the outside border. Now my mom just needs to do the binding.
What I didn't mention was: as I was finishing off this quilt this morning, I sewed RIGHT through my finger - broke the needle in 3 pieces... not once but TWICE! Is there any excuses for being blond????
