I know it has been so long, I am so sorry! I have been working on so many projects lately that I can't even keep track of them all! I just recently finished 2 large twin quilts, one for my grandma and one for my father-in-law. That project was really cool because I used the hems of wool pants my grandma had collected in the late 70's early 80's. They turned out amazinly well, considering I had absolutely no pattern and no direction when I started washing the fabric!

And then last night, I finally had a chance to sit down and make the new Liverpool pattern by Amy Butler. I fell in love with this Anna Maria Horner fabric, more with each stitch. The only thing is, I'm not sure it is really a good color for me, I'm still trying to decide. And I think the next time I make the pattern I will use the next size up for a few spots. Otherwise, I feel like it is really cute and I can't wait to get more fabric to make another one, maybe something that looks more like fall and winter!

All in all, just trying to get those Christmas gift projects finished up. I'm starting to get the itch to make more bags, but I'm not quite there yet. I have too many scraps that are asking to be made into something colorful and cute! Let me know what you think about the Liverpool and the quilts!!
