A few things...

I'm sorry that I've been MIA again, but this time I do have some finishes to share with you...along with a few WIP!!! But first let me just say that I am so HAPPY I have the next 3 days off!!! WAHOO!!! *jumps for joy*
Okay, now that that's out of my system.
Look at what I got done!!! Yep, my first real quilt, basted!!! Now I hope it doesn't take me FOREVER to quilt and bind the thing!!!

I'm so excited to get it finished and see it though!!!!
Now, for some of my other WIP:

This is going to be a pillow once I get it stuffed, for a friend I work with. It goes with:
this quilt. It's 33"x33". It's for her granddaughter. She just wanted a small one!
This is a a pic of it basted!
And quilting it! I haven't finished all of the quilting yet, but I'm working on it! I'm hoping to have this one at least quilted and binded by the end of the weekend! I'm excited about it. I like simple and sweet! I actually got all of the points lined up on this one! I'm proud of myself.
Now, I've been on a kick of simple, fast, and cute....this is what I came up with:
A little clutch type thing.
Cute, huh?
Look at what I did to the needle I was using to sew this button on.....
Don't laugh too hard at me!!! I dunno how I did it, but I did.
This one I made with a pocket....I like it!
I got a Mother's Day gift early from my hubby!!!!
He did good, plus got a GREAT deal on this thing too!

I love the natural look of it! It's such a pretty quilt rack! Anyways, hope you guys enjoyed my post!!!! Oh yeah, I've heard about this "May Giveaway Day" thingy gettin ready to go on, I believe I may join in on it. What do you guys think? I believe it will bring some traffick to my blog. Which would be awesome. I'm sure if I was interesting that would bring some traffic too, but ya know, I'm trying!!! I just get sooooo busy with work, I don't have time to post like I want to!
But thanks to those of you who have stuck with me this far, I hope you enjoy reading along with me!!!!
Hope you all are having a great day!!!!

Great job! Looks like you have been busy. I fully understand about posting. Work, family, sewing. It all takes time!

Think of me. While you are off the next three days, I am working 12 hour nights!

You did so much! How did you do that so fast??!! I love your clutch. I do buttons by hand! Have no idea how to use the machine!! I have to work all day tomorrow. You're so lucky to be off! Enjoy your holiday!!

Can I tell you I drove past a yard salke the other day (on my way somewhere) and it was all I could do NOT to stop because they had a quilt holder out front! Restrain.... restrain!!! LOL
