Artist Tote

This tote is for my budding artist, coloring mayven, etc. She will be able to carry her coloring books and sketch pads inside. There are individual pockets on the outside front for crayons. The outside back has pockets for markers and a lined pocket for paints and paintbrushes. The paintbrush pocket has velcro to keep it closed. I'm holding this for her birthday in another couple months but had to get it off my to do list. I have seen these online and decided to make my own. I did it all last night. A very easy pattern to do. The pics are quite yellow, obviously bad lighting. The bag fabric is actually a lime green and just cute as can be. I may have to retake these pics.

okay here is a little bit better photo of the color of the bag.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I have been so busy lately making Christmas projects and gifts. I am making most of the gifts I'm giving away this Christmas. My plan is to have all these completed by November in order to enjoy the holidays. This is the first Schnibble in "A Year of Schnibbles", Winter White. I used mostly Shangri La fabrics so I'm calling it Shangri-La Winter. I rushed through this pattern and I don't know why because it was easy and fun. So I'm not real happy with my geese. I plan on doing it again though. This Minnesota Stars quilt was a kit from Connecting Threads. It's a Christmas gift but I can't say for who. Shhhh!

Here is part 2 of the 3 part Bonnie Hunter/Quiltmaker "Christmas Lights" mystery quilt. I love Bonnie Hunter's patterns and this is no exception. I am so enjoying this and can hardly wait for part 3. It's not too late to get in on the fun. Check out the Quiltmaker site (there is a link on my sidebar) for back issues. Part 2 is on stands now.

Another set of Monkey P.J.s for my niece for Christmas. The pattern is by Oliver + S and so easy. I finished them in one day.

My first tree skirt. This was also very easy and I enjoyed making it. I can't wait to have this under my tree. I machine quilted stars into in.

Feathered Friends block of the month by Cinderberry Stitches. You can click on the link in my sidebar for more information on this one. I love the whimsical birds and beautiful designs in this pattern. This is only a piece of month 1. I have more to show you but have to get the photos uploaded first.

A close up of the birdies.
