Good Friday

Where has the time gone?  Seems like just yesterday it was Ash Wednesday!  We're going to have pancakes for dinner tonight.  What are you having?
I just posted a few new items in my selling blog, RaggyAnne, and noticed I have just a few followers.  Won't you be my follower?
I'm working on another raggy quilt for our Senior Center.  I'm happy to report that three out of the five I made for them has sold.  We're also working on cosmetic bags to sell for the Center also.
Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend.

Crown Royal Raggy Quilt

Good Morning!  Wonder what the weather will be today?  For the last few days, it's been a little chilly; DH & I even wore our windbreakers.  I believe it's usually warmer this time of year in Texas.
My latest project has been a Crown Royal Raggy Quilt.  It was a custom order; my customer gave me the Crown Royal bags -- they weren't fun to cut up, lol.  Of course, it was done in the raggy style.  But I'm proud of the way it came out.  This is truly a OOAK (one of a kind).  So now, I've made several Memory Quilts and one Crown Royal Quilt; I hope to make a T-Shirt Quilt soon.  Let me know what type of custom quilt you would like me to make for you......

A Beautiful Sunday!

It's another beautiful day here in Southeast Texas.  Today is the last day of our Festival; I'm sure the newspaper will report record breaking crowds.  Yesterday I had a chance to walk thru the vendor booths -- such nice items!
I'm been sewing again.  This time, I made cosmestic bags, which can also be used as "anything" bags.  I've just listed two on etsy; will continue making them and listing them for sale.
Pictured is the 1st one I completed.  Not too shabby for the 1st time I've done a zipper in about 20 years, lol.  E-mail me when you would like your own.  I can do whatever color choice you have.

Pretty day here in Texas!

Today is the beginning of our annual Heritage Festival and it was a beautiful day.  The rest of the week is going to be pretty; I'm so glad; we've had too many rainy days in the last few years.
I'm finally posting a photo of the D9P raggy quilt I made for our Senior Center.  I enjoyed making it.......

Good Morning!

Where does the time go?  I'm still busy sewing; trying some new small projects.  Though I am still doing raggy quilts for the Senior Center.  I finished a D9P last week; am working on a simple square one this week.  I also finished some cat play mats; they're so cute! 
Our DGD, Maddie, was at our house for about 3 weeks while her mother was recuperating from surgery.  We loved having her; thank goodness her dad took over when he returned from work.  I believe God gave us kids when we are younger for a reason, lol.  Oh, while I was making cat toys for a Relay for Life team, she came to check them out.  So, of course, I had to make one for her cat.
