Deja Vu

Here we are again with Monday's post but this time with the photos. Fingers crossed!

We had a good weekend... it all ends to soon though! I was able to lock myself up in my sewing room on Sunday and get some things done or at least put a dent in my special assignment! Since I can't show you that... I thought I would show you this! This is what I need to get finished.

Just the quilting left to do, and binding. I am so intimidated by doing the actual quilting though... I get anxiety from it. Anyway, this is going to be a shop sample, very soon, fingers crossed! The fabrics are from the Wonderland group and the pattern (which uses the same fabrics) is from Abbey Lane Quilts. I recently stubled upon their patterns. They are really simple and cute!






I cut this pattern out and need to get it made up. You know I need another little purse, right?

Amy Butler has a zillion purse patterns; and I would like to make every one of them... okay maybe just a dozen of them:)



I thought I would snap a quick photo of my apron "de jur". Sorry, the spelling might be off on that:) Anyway, I think it is a sweet little daisy apron from my collection. Sally, the wire form, is also wearing my mother's faux pearls! I want to start showing some of the aprons from my collection, but I am not sure how I want to slip them in. Any ideas?




Okay, and before I forget to mention it(especially to Sharon) , it is Loser Monday and I am down 2 1/2#'s. Little by little, inch by inch! I have no hopes of having a waist like Sally's but maybe by the end of summer I will be able to wear a bathing suit? At least swimwear would be on sale then!

You go girl! 2.5 lbs down. I wish I was going in that direction. Keep it up! The apron is very cute too. I like how you've displayed it for us to see.

Definitely worth the wait to see the pictures! I LOVE the first quilt...I think I might have to make that...with the same fabrics! What is the name of the pattern? Oh and the Amy purse will be great...I love all her patterns as well, and I understand a CD will be coming out with many of them soon!

Wow, you did a wonderful job on your quilt. I enjoy putting quilts together, it's like painting a picture. But, I do not like binding the quilt or the quilting. It's nice to pay a little extra and have a quilting machine quilt it.
Hope you have a great day!
