My granddaughter Lucy needed a new bag for her gymnastic programs.  So mommy and Lucy went fabric shopping and picked out two fabrics that coordinated. They settled on a paisley and a animal print that worked very well together. Lucy gave me some design ideas and this is what we ended up with. We had a few scraps left and made a little zippered bag to match. It was a fun project.
Not sure why this when sideways but this is a picture of Lucy at her Gymnastic meet with her new bag.

This was a fun lattice table runner to make. It would even be a great quilt. The runner was for my daughter-in-law Sarah's birthday...who isn't having birthdays anymore. ;D

What a cold snowy January this year in Ohio. What better time to quilt. I decided on a Five and Dime quilt as done in the tutorials on Missouri Star Quilts. I had some great assistants, Lucy and Paige, granddaughters who helped me arrange the fabrics. One of the best things I did was back it with flannel, it just stays there and doesn't move or shift. Very cozy!

Kayden, my Grandson, has had patience while I worked on his quilt. He picked the quilt out last winter and we did a few blocks together so he could be involved. I just gave him this for his birthday this winter. He said he remembered working on it and he put it on his bed immediately, along with a big smile. This is a little larger than a twin, which I think it too small anyway for kids. They need room to grow.

Lucy decided on a quilt for her day bed. She found a picture and sent it to me. I think I made this mostly from my stash of orange and yellows.

This is the latest purse, it was made specifically for a gift and their favorite color is purple and lavender. I hope this works!

I spotted this purse pattern while on vacation this past summer in Mankato Minn. I gave it a Western or Cowgirl flair with this fabric. It is loaded with pockets and a large front pocket with the slanted cover. The interior is made to hold a tablet along with ample room.
