HEY!!!! Remember ME??

Yep, I am still around and all is well. I simply had a lot of committments all at the same time.  The organizing project got put on hold while I played roulette with everything else. Finished up one project of making gifts for the Moms at church for Mother's day and everyone loved them.  Not too many in my church group do sewing or other crafts but they enjoy what we do. Here's some pics of what we made.  Had lots of fun with it.

Click on any pic to make it bigger than use back button to return here.
Coasters in sets of four

Both the potholders and the coaster sets are made with Pat's CrissCross pattern.
Another thing I have been involved in is making baby quilts to send to Marilyn who will then get them on into Japan for the children there.  We sent our first 20 out last week and will have another 30 this week...late this week.  And I will post some pictures later on all those.

One good thing about these projects is that they are busting fabric stash so that is good for the organizing.  I am going to add a few things to the giveaway...remember I said while I was organizing and until the box was are such a patient bunch! LOL  So......................
Let's add some textures to the GIVEAWAY box.  An eclectic lot here of rough, super soft, scratchy, slinky, super slick or smooth.  Some would be great for roof tops, some for pathways or ground cover, maybe tree trunks or rock surfaces.  Great for fabric postcards or other picture projects.
Textures of the eclectic sort.

So that's the pic for the addition to the box today.  Here's the "now ain't that just the way it always goes." for this organizing extravaganza.  When I started hunting  gathering fabric for the coasters, potholders and baby quilts, I put the giveaway box up so that it wouldn't get mixed in with these new projects and now I can't find it.   It's here, I know it's here and I'll find it. The info on the giveaway starts here.
Stay tuned.

You're a wonder sewing woman! It's great that you've made so many things for the church and charities. Using up your fabrics, organizing your collection and adding to your giveaway bag--all very worthwhile things to do.
I'm glad you posted today in Lib-Quilters.

Wow, you have been super busy. It is always so nice to give something you've made to someone and just know that they really appreciate it and will enjoy using it.

You have certainly been busy! Glad I'm not the only one who finds the perfect spot to put something and then can't remember it!
