Heres Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along Block #6

Are we having fun yet? I can say that for me and my sister, who is also doing this, that we are kind of fanatic about the whole thing! The whole quilt along process is really very simple and I still plan on doing another one of these in Christmas fabrics if I can only get my act together and do it. Thinking about doing it with some friends and helping them learn to quilt as we go. You can check on the button to the right side of my screen and start your own. Its not to late to do so.
Now for Mothers Day, my kids, their spouses and my 2 grand-daughters came over. Thought you may be interested in seeing a picture of them. At least I'm interested in showing you! This is Esther and she will be approaching her 2nd birthday soon.

And this Rebekah. Shes zonked out as you can see. She is just about 1 month in a couple of days here. Precious isn't she.

I started to notice that the time I post another blog is getting longer and longer between postings. I guess life is getting busier and busier. I have been doing little bits here and there in between doing side jobs of alterations etc.
But here a few more photos of bags that I have been doing for friends at work. The photos are hard to imagine size in. They are pretty large, usually measuring 18 inches wide by 13 inches deep. Its a rather good size bag for "totes", so I was surprised when a friend asked for a even deeper version. This one is 18" deep. I can see it being a perfect one for traveling. I will be making more of this size.
This black and cream one is the first of this size and lets just say that I like it.

Heres the combo picture of the 6 of them

And a close up of the flower embellishment I attached to some of them.

Since then, I have done the alterations and more projects that I will be viewing later.
