These five bracelets are now re-strung and ready for wearing (or they will be once the glue dries and I trim the elastic). Hooray for a colorful wrist! And here is where this fun started: https://ponderingitall.blog/2018/07/16/2018-resolutions-part-3/
My sweet granddaughter was born last month. Her quilt is done and ready for tummy time. It turned out pretty cute, if I do say so myself. The pattern is Sprinkles from Jaybird Quilts. Her patterns are so easy to make, I highly recommend them. And the fabric all came from Quilt Addicts… Continue reading Baby Quilt

This was finished over 24 hours before it was gifted. That may be a personal best for me! As you may recall from my commitment post: https://ponderingitall.blog/2018/04/13/2018-resolutions-part-2/ I made this for a religious leader from fabric used at an event some years back. My strategy was to sew “border” fabrics onto each strip and… Continue reading Flip and Sew Success!
