Sometimes You Know...

Sometimes you know that a project is going to turn out so cute that you might as well just make two to begin with...that's the way it was when I set out to make a couple of friendship bags from Simple Abundance using the tutorial by Rachel of PS I Quilt.


After making the bags I decided one would be perfect to go along with the gifts I was making to send to my Stitcher's Angel...across the ocean...(I hope she likes Simple Abundance)!

My gifts from my stitcher's Angel recently arrived. I received a wonderful tote bag, "Sweet" needle case, luggage tags (I really, really needed these) and lovely soaps from Marie. Everything is beautiful...thank you Marie!

I've just finished the tenth block in the Tisket a Tasket quilt designed by Anne...just in time for block eleven to be released next week...only two blocks to go!


Sinta and I are getting ready for the next Year of Schnibbles parade! I've seen some great finishes in the last few days...and can't wait to share the November Schnibbles pattern with you. I finished mine last week and absolutely love it! Hope you have a wonderful day!
Here is a new blog for you to visit...I've been waiting (not so patiently) for this blog debut since I love the Where Women Create book and magazine!

The little bags are "two" cute. And what perfect amenities to go in them.

Looks like the "across the ocean" goodie bag was "sweet".
