Happy Birthday to my Boss

The lady that owns the quilt shop that I work in part-time celebrated her birthday on the 19th.  A friend and I decided to make her some gifts since she doesn’t have time to make herself anything.   I made her this card and two little gadget bags that can be used for a multiple of things.


What better image to use but one that has her sewing up a storm.  I just love this Tilda and so did she.


Here is a picture of just the bags…..the vinyl front makes it easy to see what goodies you might have in them.


Thought I’d share a couple of pictures of some other purses and tote bags I’ve made.


This is like the one I made for Janie only bigger…..I carry much to much in my purse.  This next one is called The Mini Professional Tote and I carried it when we went to Florida to visit family.  I has a place in the middle to put your tablet….I have an iPad 2 and it fits perfectly.


Well that’s it for now.  I will share some of the quilts I’ve made at a later date. 

Hope you are having a marvelous week-end.  It’s snowing here….ugh.

Best Friends Birthday

I haven’t posted anything for several months but hope to do better.  I made a card for a grandson-in-law and will post it later.  This card I made for a very  special friend that winters in Arizona and it makes for a long winter with her so far away.  After the winter we’ve had I can’t say I blame her.
I must admit that I’m a sucker for new craft things so it makes it easy for Janie to get me involved in new adventures.  We are into making paper flowers and I’m sure we will both be posting some in the future once we get it sort of mastered.  Any way let me get back to the point I wanted to make…..the  point is she likes Lady Bugs so as you can see there are two on this card.  One is part of the Tilda image and the other is a stamp I had and added it to the sentiment.

A closer look.   Once I finished the card I needed something to go with it and this is what I came up with.
I make a lot of my purses and she always comments on them so decided she needed one.  Think it goes with the card.   She loves flowers and as you can see I had to put a Lady Bug button on a leaf.

Thanks for stopping by it means  a lot to me. May your week-end be a blessed one.
