Two weeks to go!

The countdown is ON. The studio tour starts two weeks from tomorrow, so the clock is definately ticking. I feel like I'm almost ready though. I made 14 pillowcases last week, and a bunch of ornaments this week. Everything is priced and packed, so if i have time to make more things great - if not, it's not a problem. Hopefully Nellie and I can get into the building next week to start putting up tables and display racks. That will make set-up day much easier. Check out the brochure for the studio tour at:
We are at studio #8.
Hope some of you will be able to visit!

Make-up bags!!

I still have lots of batik scraps left over, so now I am making make-up bags. I think they will be a nice addition to the Studio Tour line up! I think I will make more in other scraps as well. My friends and I all LOVE batiks, but there may be people out there who don't. I hope I have enough room to display everything!

The Purse Quilt

After Nellie and I had finsihed making all of the quilts for Camelot Fabrics in the spring, we had LOTS of the Lulu fabric left over. I REALLY wanted to make a purse wallhanging using those fabrics, so while I was in Florida last March I stitched up this wallhanging. I just now finished quilting and binding it.

I went to a garage sale in the summer and bought some fancy rhinestone broaches to use as embellishment.

I really love the way it turned out, but I'm not too sure what to do with it. It doesn't fit anywhere in my house and I don't know if I want to make a pattern out of it. Perhaps I'll sell it at the Studio Tour.
