What I'm working on...

I'm finally working on quilting a quilt top I've had done forever!!



I'm half way done!! I want to keep working but my arms and shoulders are SORE!

Maybe one day I will own a long arm machine and won't have to quilt this way! Linking to:Sarah and Amanda.

Envelopes

I picked up a book at the library the other day.



I have over 5 years worth of Family Fun magazines so I spent this morning making some envelopes.

A hat



I made my youngest a hat.

But then I couldn't stop at just one.



This little boy loves his hats.

Getting my fabric scraps organized!!

I completed 2 boxes from the book Sunday Morning Quilts.

A pink one..



And an I spy one.(For novelty fabrics)



My colored boxes. They make me so happy!!



I still need an orange one, a black, white, brown, and maybe gray... I just need more fabrics in those colors.

After I complete my cat quilt, I plan on cutting up these scraps into the following sizes: 2", 2.5", 3.5" and 5".



I'm thinking this would be a fun quilt to use up all my colored scraps from the cat quilt on.

Mother's Day Gift

My mom has been asking for an apron for a while so I finally made her one for Mother's day.



My oldest daughter now thinks she needs one.

To go with it I made a Recipe binder.



She loves it! The only thing is the directions called for a 1 1/2" binder and my cover wouldn't fit into a 1 1/2" binder, but it fit into a 1" binder. (Maybe I made mine too short!)

May's Goals

Over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Sarah asked us what are goals for May are.

I want to continue working on The Splendid Sampler .



Continue working on these little cat blocks.





I also want to finish at least one of these two quilts.



I think these would be done if I had a long arm machine. I'm working on piecing the backing for the gray/pink/purple quilt.

I would also love to get some time in for scrapbooking.
