Old Tobacco Road

I have my fabric cut! I am going to use these plain homespun fabrics. I cut muslin to go with them but didn't like how bla they looked.

So I picked out some more plaid homespun to go with them. I think I like this a lot better. Sorry about the flash in the photo. I'm not sure if I'm going to put the browns/earth tones with them or something else for the 3 1/2" strips. After tonight I will be behind on the mystery so I might wait and see what the other color is used for before I decide. If you are doing the mystery leave me a comment so I can get your link to follow your progress on your blog. If your aren't doing the mystery you can still leave me a comment. I love to read all the comments you leave me.

Pond Visitor

Look at this cute pond visitor that came to visit my pond. I like this visitor a lot better than the two water snakes that came to visit earlier this year. No pictures of the water snakes I don't get close enough to them for pictures.

Hello Kitty Tote

I couldn't stop with just one! I made another one today. This one is going to DD so I should be able to keep the poka dot one now. At 18 she is still a big Hello Kitty fan.

I do have the binding on the Carolina crossroads quilt and I will be taking it to Quilt club Monday night to start the hand stitching to the back. I promise to get a picture of the completed quilt soon.

Summer Tote

I took a break from quilting and made this tote. It was made from a Lazy Girl Designs pattern #122 Summer Tote. It was very quick and easy to make. I did all the cutting and sewing today! The fabric I used was an outdoor type canvas so it is very sturdy. I hope to get it filled up with some of my stuff before DD takes possession of it.

I did finish quilting my Carolina Crossroads and I'm hoping to get the binding added tommorrow.
