There are some pretty amazing and kind people in this world and I made this mini as a thank you to one of them.
It's a mini of an Elizabeth Hartmann pattern that we teach as a beginner quilt in store.

Trying some weaving

I have an online friend, Tara Curtis, who is a phenomal fabric weaver. She has even invented weaving needles that you now see in the houses of many quilters.
We did a trade a while back and she sent me some needles and I just needed to find the time to try weaving.
Last night was finally the right time and I really enjoyed it. I'm not sure what will become of this piece but I already have plans to do some more weaving and to turn it into pouches.
You can check Tara and her Wefty needle out here.

A bag and some pouches

I recently made a bag as a thank you gift for a friend of mine. The pattern is the Zip Top Tote from Anna Graham's book Handmade Style. One important note if you are going to make this it to use a purse zipper for the wider tape, I struggled quite a bit.
Last night I sat down to figure out some new pouch dimensions. I wanted something long and low, and after trial and error came up with this. 
And then I made a second one and put them both in my Etsy store. I do plan for several more to be made soon.

Victoria's Quilts #2

My friend Sharyn at Quilting Stitches did a great job on my second quilt top. It looks great and I am happy knowing it will bring some warmth and comfort to someone going through cancer treatment.
