My friend Paulas birthday!!!

My bestest friend Paula had a birthday this last thursday. I had a gift in the works but hadn't finished it in time so I let her know she would have it by tomorrow. Well I finished it up tonite and really, really like the way it turned out. I used some of the leftover fat quarters of the blacks and reds I used for my nephews wedding quilt. I am posting a pic of it in the hopes she won't see it before I give it to her tomorrow nite. If you do Paula. please act surprised and believe me it looks much better in real life. Hope you like it my good friend.

I will be starting another one of these with some Lila Tuellar fabric that I have. It will be more of a spring oriented fabric. This one will be mine. I really love this pattern and it is so easy. You can find the pattern over at

My granddaughter was a junior bridesmaid at her Uncles wedding and she looks so good in this picture I had to post it. The other one in the picture is her new mama, Melissa. We are busy watching the Academy Awards but I need to get busy and start to work on another of my projects on the list to finish. Next on the list to complete is my sisters autographed wedding quilt.
Take care and have a great week.

Wow, it is beautiful. It is so sweet. I love it in the black red and white. So classic. I know she will love it. I was invited to a baby shower next weekend and the mother doesn't want to know if it is a boy or girl (odd in our day and age) so I'm going to make her a bag like this but a bit bigger and I'll box the corners with bigger pockets. I think I'll use an oilcloth inside too. I think it would make a nice diaper bag. Thanks so much for letting me see your darling bag.
