Another Finish...

Yayyyy!!! I have another finish for March's OPAM. I finished a pincushion for our pincushion swap on Block Central yesterday, and mailed it out today. It's my first "fancy" pincushion and gave me fits several times, but I think it turned out great for only my second pincushion ever. It's supposed to be a hibiscus flower. I'm not sure how true-to-life it is, but it looks like the picture, so I'm hoping ------ likes it. This is the top view
and this is the side view. It looks a little tipsy in the picture, but I think I straightened it out.

I also finally finished my burgundy fall purse that has been cut out for months. I'm using it now and it matches perfectly a jacket my friend, Barb, gave me. I cheated and used pre-quilted fabric, but I love the colors, so had to have it. This is the outside, this is the lining, and this is it all done and stuffed full of my junk! But it has lots of pockets for my "stuff", plus an outside pocket for my phone.

Today was Quilt Club at Joan's and Jane had her version of Burning the Midnight Oil's Fall Fancy all done! She is so fast--and it is gorgeous! She also finished a coffee-themed table topper and mini wallhanging.
But she was busy chatting, so Donna had to show them off for her, lol. Bonnie worked on her crazy chicken block, and Donna showed us her latest two house blocks. That quilt is going to be fabulous when it's all done--she is so meticulous. Ann brought a quilt she long-armed for a lady-Carolina Lily-very pretty. So many pretty things to look at. And today we exchanged secret pal gifts for Easter. I received a pair of Easter Bunny socks (to add to my holiday sock collection) and a darling Debbie Mumm Easter chick towel. I hung the towel right up when I got home and will wear my new socks for Easter Sunday. Plus the Easter card I received had a kitty with bunny ears on that looked like Katie. Too cute! What a fun day it was.

Until next time...
Happy Quilting from Sharon and Katie

Sharon your pincushion turned out great. Don't you hate it when a project gives you fits though. :-) It's beautiful and I am sure it's new owner will absolutely love it. I just finished up the "Crazy Chicken" wall hanging that your friend Bonnie is working on myself. I just love that goofy face!
