One-zee conversion

                                       I made this little dress from a one-zee for my sweet granddaughter.
                                 It is a pattern from Vanilla House start with a one-zee
                                and make the skirt.  I found this great cupcake material and made this in
                                an afternoon.  Its wrapped and boxed up so I can mail it to Lily tomorrow.

                                           "Christmas Lights"

Christmas Lights with Tonya,s freestyle letters

.                             This is another Bonnie Hunter mystery.
                              I used her colors suggestions then seeing how all the quilts were looking
                              alike on her chat group I decided to liberate it a bit.  So I went to Tonya's
                              inspiring tutorials and came up with the message " Merry Christmas" complete with
                              snowflakes......or are they wrapped gifts like my friend Debby saw.
                              This quilt is an example of using scraps... bits and of this and that...shirts are included too.
                              And even though the letters are very wonky it all works to come together to a pretty
                              cute quilt.  I'm gonna back this with flannel and send it to my nephew to snuggle
                              under with his girls.

table runner for gift exchange

This is a gift exchange for Carol Doak's paper piecing yahoo group. We exchanged a fat quarter and then made a gift from the swapmates fabric adding some of our own. I'm pleased with how this came out and will be mailing it this week.
