EAL Block and I WON!

First up is the next block for the Early American Life quilt that Karen and I are working on.  Mine is a simpler version.  




Next...I entered a giveaway at Crafty Ashley B.



It is a beautiful tote bag with lots of pockets, a zippered bag to go with it and 3 patterns.  The patterns are by Simplicity.  The first pattern if for tote bags and zippered bags in multiple sizes.  The second pattern is for Organizer bins and the third is for some really classy tote...more like purses.  She also sent me three FQ's.  You should stop on over and check out her blog.

Well in my last post I told you I woke up to snow.  The next morning it snowed and then the temps got up to 56 degrees.  Yesterday was so beautiful...Spring had finally sprung.  Last night it rained.  This morning was beautiful again.  Gray clouds have moved in and it is supposed to rain.  Looks like the nice weather has left us and cooler temps and rain are in our future.  Not all bad...it makes for good sewing time.

I finished quilting the wedding quilt and have sewn the binding on the quilt.  Tonight I will had sew the binding down.   I made a really cute quilt label and will show you it later.

Have a good weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

Karen said...

Ah yes, your tulip is simpler but still much like the one from the pattern.

Good that spring is on its way up to you. It certainly has been a strange winter all around.
