A quilt for Cora

 
Hi all..so pardon the HUGE picture.....I don't know how to resize it!! This is Cora...
 
She is the daughter of one of my co-workers,
she is absolutely darling and I
just feel a connection to this little beautiful person...
So, I made her a quilt!!
 


Her mommy is very "HIP" and "Reggae type" person...she is a fantastic ER nurse
and she has the best attitude ever!
 I simply adore this gal, my day at work gets better when I see she is there.  Shes one of those people who are beautiful from the inside out!!
 
So, I absolutely had to make these wonky stars
 with Batiks...its so "up their alley"....funky and colorful...and fun like them!
 

 
 
I think shes gonna love it!

My first Zippered Pouches!

 
 
Well I finally tried my hand at making a zippered pouch!
 
For the one on the left, I used two scrappy
 mug rugs that I had quilted but hadn't
put the binding on them yet, it turned
out to be a nice big size pouch.
 

 
The one on the right was made from some
scraps from my bag of browns...
I am going to give it to my friend Anna...its a bit small, but a good purse size.
 
 
 
I want to make more of these for an
upcoming craft fair...I think they would
sell well...now I just need to have some home
alone downtime and peace and quiet to
get them done! 
 
If you are a chicken like me and haven't tried
 making a pouch...you should, its isn't as bad as I thought it would be!!

that sack is darn near empty!
