New Years Resolution

I have a cupboard, that used to be just a shelf in a cupboard, full of plastic bags. And they just keep expanding. I now have stashes beneath just about every sink in the house! I can't just throw them out, or even recycle them because I do use them as trash bags. And who wants to throw out all those free bags! Hmm, I guess that means more stuff coming in than trash going out....must be why the house keeps getting fuller and fuller too!
Yes, I have reusable grocery totes, shopping totes, cute bags I have made, cute bags received as gifts, but do I ever remember to bring them?
My huge goal/resolution: 1 bag in, 5 bags out. That should get my bags back down to one small shelf. I can always hope :)

Dare I start a new quilt?

So Brenda (Dear Jane) and Gay(Sentimental Stitches) are starting a new mystery quilt.
It is red and white-and I've been wanting to make a red and white quilt for a while. And it has over 2000 pieces! Sounds so intriguing!

Finished Skirt

I finished the hand sewing on V's skirt this evening. I started it yesterday-cut out the fabric, and had most of it finished. I made all the seam/edges enclosed so there wouldn't be any fraying.
Next up for V-an apron dress out of soft greens.

Little red bird!

I just joined a yahoo swap group, and one of the ladies had a block with the little red bird fabric. I fell in love with it! I found some on-line, with some of the coordinating fabric, and I am going to make a skirt for V!

More Apple Cozies!

These are so quick and fun to make. The orange is for a girl whose favorite color is-can you guess?-orange!
The pineapple is inspired by a pineapple stuffed animal :)

Button Pin

K sent me this button book for Christmas (last week).
I made the button pin. It was fun and easy. V would like one too :)
