Happy Bunny Day!!

Ir's Easter Sunday and here in Indiana the sun is finally shining. Maybe the Easter Bunny is bringing a basket full of spring!

There's a herd of new photos posted on the photo site. I had two really great days of sewing this week and finished up a few projects.

I did 18 9 patch blocks for the block swap. That's the 16 I need plus 2 extras...just in case someone else signs up. They are done in some left over Thimbleberries fabrics. I want to try the disappearing 9 patch quilt when I get mine back.

I also sashed up the large orphan blocks and they are ready for batting and quilting. The large ones will become table mats or candle mats and the smaller ones will become placemats. The little pinwheel orphan blocks will become hot pot mats and potholders...I have lots of insulbright!!

I finished up my spring Miranda Bag and Towne Purse. Both of these patterns are by Lazy Girl Designs. I also did up a Lazy accessory set... 2 Wonder Wallets, 2 pouches, and a check book cover. This time I made a large trifold quilted wallet. It's not a Lazy Girl pattern. It took me 5 hours to make the wallet... it's nice... it has a zippered pocket, a regular pocket, credit card slots and a clear viny ID card slot. The credit card piece lifts up and theres 2 more vinyl pockets and a checkbook/coupon pocket and pen holder. It also has a pocket on the back.
It only took me 1b 1/2 hours to cut and sew the complete accessory set!!

I also finished up a purple Log Cabin Star for a friend at work. Just need to hand stitch the binding. I'll post that after the binding is completed.

There won't be much sewing today.... it's March Madness and it's hit West Lafayette! The Purdue Women's Basketball team is playing tonite in the first round NCAA games. There are four sets of games today and I"ll probably go watch'em all!!

Tuesday is the next set of games and if all goes well today... we'll play tuesday nite for our shot at the Sweet Sixteen.... so keep your fingers crossed and think Black and Gold!!

For those playing along on the 25 Weeks... April goals will be posted next week and currently I have a few openings available in the yahoo group. April 1st I'm closing membership again til June so if you are interested, please sign up. You can see the group here

Til next week
Think Spring
