Friday Fun

During the worst of my concussion recovery last fall, I was feeling really sorry for self.  So, I asked a friend to pick up an IKEA sewing machine for me.  Anything sewing is just the panacea, isn't it!!  Unfortunately, the machine was a lemon.   Mr.O'Quilts and I took a ride yesterday to return it.  This resulted in a lovely orange IKEA store debit card for $69 immediately burning a hole in my pocket...hmmm   Sharing here... pictures of my finds...


 Very large orange polkadots..
 Of course, I didn't catch my breath before taking part in the  Fat Quarter Shop Sale.  I am a dot lover...
My mother has been loosing a lot of friends lately.  She thinks that these little coin purses make good bereavement gifts.  I am whipping them out  like potholders.  Somehow, they do make folks happy.  I cut these out last night and made them up today.

I love IKEA and I need to go in the next 2 months since I will be in TX. I have passed the fabric but my bin was full and I said next time. This will be the next.

Your coin purses are just too wonderful.
