New Baby Quilt

This is going out in the mail today for my friend Meghan's newborn niece. I actually started and finished it all in one day and was prepared to mail it in time to arrive for the baby shower on Saturday. Just as I was about to finish, I checked my email and found out that mom and baby were on the way to the hospital. Sure enough, when I finally get something done on time, it is still late because baby decided to come early. The Baby arrived yesterday weighing in at 6lbs 6 ounces. I think this quilt weighs more than she does!! Anyway, I think it turned out cute. Meghan picked all the fabrics and just handed me the sack. So, Meghan, this is how it turned out. I hope you and new mom and baby like it!!

FBC - Zavalla - Trunk or Treat 09

Here I am with my mom and that's my sister in the pilgrim outfit above. We parked in our church lot and gave candy from our trunks. Everyone that participated did great jobs decorating up their vehicle. Mom and I are dressed as beauty pageant contestants. You can't tell from the picture, but mom is Miss Understood, and I am Miss Demeanor. The weather was perfect and we all had a great time. Lots of kids came by to get candy and several parties on hayrides. Can't wait to decide what to do for next year!

Pretty Little Purse

Yesterday I was looking through my favorite craft blog, and I found this purse shown with a free pattern so I downloaded and made it all in the same day. Whoo Hoo! That's a first for me! The designer is Lazy Girl designs and you can find it here: I will definitely be making more of these and experimenting with different fabrics. The website has a free download of the pattern. It is called the Noriko Handbag. Anyway, super fast to make and requires very little fabric. A great way to use up my stash!
