I, for one, can not believe it's May 1st. But I have to say that I'm elated that it's May 1st! It means that it's that much closer until Travis comes home. I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel! About 7 more weeks and he'll be home.
Over the past weeks, I have finished a couple projects...some I can't show pictures of just yet. :) Here are a few that I can share with you though:
These zipper bags were made for four ladies that helped me with the planning of our recent Protestant Women of the Chapel retreat. I filled them with goodies like lip balm, flower seeds, coffee gift cards, and of course, candy!
Two weeks ago, I went on the Southern Idaho Quilt Shop Hop. We visited 16 shops in three days...three of the shops were in western Oregon and the rest were in Southwest Idaho. I found this cute tote bag pattern at one of the shops. The fabric is from Moda's new "Frolic" line. I love it!
This is an OLD UFO...it's the 2007 Thimbleberries Club quilt...with a slight modification. I didn't add the final borders and made it lap size instead. I'm giving it to a great friend that has been an incredible encourager to me this year...I hope she enjoys it!
I thought I'd share a pic of the back. I love to piece the backs out of fabric from my stash. It feels like such an accomplishment to "use up" that stash! LOL These were extra club fabrics not used in the final borders.
I have a few more things -almost- finished, so I might have a couple more pictures later this week.
Another great thing about May...it's the BPF Quilting Retreat in Indiana! This will be my 3rd year to attend and absolutely just can't wait!! Only 10 more days til I leave!
A crazy thing about this first day of May in Idaho...it only reached 51 degrees today. Ugh...when is the warm weather going to arrive?
