Christinas wall hanging

I went fabric shopping with Christina. she fell in love with the bucks. 

I immediately thought about this wall hanging. 

I told her to grab 3 fat quarters and made this up for her in a couple hours. 

maybe should have made the middle a little smaller. 
and the side triangles I cut wrong- but didn't notice til I was done. so now it draws your eyes around the quilt. 

quilted around the middle buck

and a piece from my stash for the back and a hanging sleeve

my 34th birthday quilt

for my 34th birthday my friend Rachel threw me a surprise birthday party!

I had no clue that it was being planned. They disguised it as a planning meeting for the Operation Christmas Child boxes.

Dave was out of town and Courtney even came down for the party. She offered to take the kids to get some groceries while i went to the meeting. She was there with the kids and all my friends.

Rachel knew my favourite colour was yellow and was trying to get me something people could write on for a quilt top and got a jelly roll. (fabric strips)

I later found this charm pack and bought it. there are 2 of each pattern - sort of a fun game to match them up.

I used the well wishes as the sashing.




you should be able to click on the pictures to see them bigger and then scroll through them.









I then backed it in camera fabric. 


added a label



now I just need to add a hanging sleeve and find a place to hang it in my room.

moms computer bag

Mom asked me to make her a computer sleeve for her computer they just got. 

It evolved from a simple zip bag to one with handles to a messenger bag

pretty little applique 

pockets. the one has a velcro closure. 

velcro closure for the whole thing 

computer, cord and mouse

I think mom likes it

oh- and i added two handles. long and short

Sehorn twin's quilts

Friends of ours moved away just under a year ago. Shortly afterwards we found out they were pregnant. 
Their two kids were excited to have a baby, which then turned out to be twins!!

They had baby boys a couple weeks ago and I sent them these matching quilts. 




I used the same pattern and the same backing but changed the fabrics on the front. 


Dave helping by holding them and turning them around. 


one is more blue and the other more green


both signed as per usual

the kids decorated the boxes



and here they are using it with their big brother.
