All these bags are free hand free motion quilted,the top 3 have zippers and a loop to carry it with. Perfect for all make up,even Mary Kay make-up.
The last 2 can be make up bags or just a small clutch for church or anything nice. This green one was done with fancy stitching from my Janome machine ,I love it!
My oldest daughter Tammy had asked me to make her a small wall hanging for her kitchen to help cover the fuse box . Her theme is roosters so I made her a small one like the table top I made for Samantha but lots smaller .I love the 1 inch squares with this ! Hopefully I have enough fabric left to make a few pot holders too.
I have been saving used coffee filters for about 2 years , after the grounds dried up I would dump them in the compost or flower beds . then brush off the leftover from the filter. I have almost 200 filters folded and twisted on a sarafoam weath then added the fall decorations , Later I will change it out for Christmas .
My grand daughter Chloe said it looks like a Camo weath.
My Grand daughter Kayla Sue had asked me if I would make a small quilt for a friends baby sister from Dora fabric , so this is how it turned out.
It is almost a crib size maybe 12 inches shorter than normal .
I sent it along with other things for her and her Mom. She is now a happy girl!

My sister asked if we could make some really pretty stockings to sell in her daughter's Bridal Shop , The shop is located in the Olde Town Square in Winter Haven ,Florida , The Building is rented out to several different shops ,with the style of the building and etc. the crafts are perfect to sell in a place like this.
We spent lots of time making those and the aprons in just a few days,
So they are for sale at Brandy's Bridal in Winter Haven.
Prices vary. I will show the aprons later.
I have shown pictures of the quilts the last 2 days , today I am showing pictures of the Park where the Quilt Show was held ,They are open year around and have many events planned here as well as a gift shop and camping grounds.
Tower up close
Southern Belle display inside the tower.
Tower from the distance _ I had taken more photo's but they did not turn out good
Museum~ walkway from Auditorium to Museum
Not sure if this is the front entrance or the back, but from the Auditorium we went in this way.
Inside the museum there were several piano's all very old .
There were several window units showing how things worked long ago.
This is a very old chair , I failed to look and see the age , they had straps going a cross it to keep people off it and I was afraid to get too close but this wood carving at the top looks just like George Washington!
A few more quilts
The other side of the museum - we came out a side entrance, this is what you see as you drive into the park area, at the main entrance gate you have to pay to get into the show, not sure about campers and etc.
This is another side view from the museum of a water fountain, there was no water in it this time. There are many very old Oak trees that are huge! A beautiful place to visit.
