Tacos tonight and the chipmunks are back!


Made this Black Bean Salad for tonight's Taco dinner. Got the recipe from Pinterest: http://homecooking.about.com/od/blackbeansrecipes/r/Black-Bean-Salad-Recipe-blsalad82.htm

I can prepare at my kitchen counter and look out the window to view the bird feeders. The chipmunks have come out of hibernation and this one was filling her cheeks! They must be hungry after all that sleeping. The lake is still ice-covered but the temps are warning up!
Have a great weekend!

Had a basic bag class today but no one showed up, so I just sewed this bag by myself. The fabric is leftovers from a pillow I made for a friend a few years ago, the button is from my Grandma Diver's button box. This will be on it's way to Nevada for my Cowgirl sister!

Finally finished the Travel Sewing Kit. Good pattern to use up scraps of my vintage tablecloths for the outside and other scraps for the inside, too! Here's the link to the Tutorial: http://lotsofpinkhere.blogspot.com/2011/10/12-gifts-of-christmas-blog-hop.html

Scrappy bag in progress


The 2 sides of a bag in progress...scrappy, quilt-as-you-go. I think it's fun!

So, I finished up this tote today- another great vintage tablecloth! I think it will be perfect for Farmer's Market tote! It is now for sale in the Green Lake Town Square Corner Store, Green Lake WI. It has been turned into an Artist's Co-op and you can see my spot above. We have the Grand Opening this Saturday along with the indoor Farmer's Market, too! Can't wait!

Recent projects...




A few of the projects lately...I'm mostly sewing curtains for the Green Lake Town Square Ballroom- panels of crinkled poly- very full of static electricity- may hair may be curly by the time I am done- haha! It's boring sewing but  I am glad to do this for this great community place.
You can see it here: http://www.greenlaketownsquare.com/
I'm ready to get back to fun sewing!!!

So, I have joined a group on Flickr- the Gypsy Wife Quilt- A -Long. Here is the link to the pattern:
http://jenkingwelldesigns.blogspot.com/. I thought this would be a fun project that would help use up the large amount of scraps I have. I just started with whatever tickled my fancy! I guess I am into the happy, bright fabrics now- maybe the time of the year has something to do with this?
Anyway- I am all caught up and it was fun making these blocks! This will be one bright, happy quilt when it is finished.
