I was wrong..This is not the ugly quilt I thought it was. The backing and the wonderful quilting by Terri has made this quilt a lovely donation to Quilts of Valor http://www.qovf.org/
Although I hate to be wrong, it is nice to be so in a good way. This quilt is now all finished and ready to give to the Guild for donation. The batik backing is perfect!

Still up late, a bit..tiny bit, wired still from the steroids..I decided to make this little bag. I was cleaning up after our Sit and Sew today, when I saw this empty onion bag and started wondering what I could do with it. I took some of the "made" fabric and sewed up this funky bag. It was so much fun to make!

I was going to take a nap today, but I so got into this fun that it didn't happen and now it is 5 o'clock. Going into my bits and pieces last night, I found this orphan block left over from my Grandmother's embroidery. She made these cats from Better Homes and Gardens magazine in the 1970's. I made a quilt from them and this one was left over. After a few years I decided to paint it orange with a Marvy marker. I totally hated it and yet couldn't throw it away cause Grandma embroidered it. You can see that I keep things forever. But, now I see that I no longer have forever. So, I made another block medallion quilt and appliqued a fish in the mouth...It was so much fun that I was driven to enjoy and finished it right now.
