Orange Peel Quilt

Due to always seeming to have limited funds, I have always ended up putting most everything I make up for sale. Luckily I have had a lot of good luck with sales, so I have been able to afford even more fabrics. About 6-8 months ago I wanted to do something for myself. I played around with some things and so far love what I have. My goal is to keep adding on until it is big enough to be a comfy blanket. It usually gets put on the back burner, but slowly it is getting done!

New coin purses

For christmas I got a couple small purse patterns from my aunt. I decided to spend my summer in Indiana with my sister, so I packed up my car with my suitcase, dog, and of course sewing machine and drove up. Normally I am not too good at following patterns, but I tried these out and fell in love. I made a little coin purse that I use full time. I have actually retired my purse to use this. I like simplicity and I am able to carry all my important cards, my money and coins and it fits in my pocket. So I decided to make some and add them to my etsy store to share with the world.

I'm back!

I have spent all day trying to figure out how to redign my blog and add a new post...and couldn't not figure it out to save my life! then after many frustrating hours, I figured out that I was signed on as my gmail account, but my blog is under my aol account, therefore it showed I had no blog. duh! So I'm good and ready to jump on and try this thing out!
