FNSI Finishes…My Friend Joan The Wrapper and My Friend Carol The Tree Maker

For me Friday Night Sew In started in the afternoon.  002  Two tree mats (buttons sewed on even!!!) and a pouch to be mailed off to a friend today.  The trees not only are my Christmas finishes for the month, but will count as my Sew It’s Finished projects.  They were started at quilt camp in November…..so a twofer….YIPEEEEEE!

Later Friday night I made this Bookkeeper..pattern by Kim Walus with a link here.  It was so quick and easy to make.  It can hold a Kindle, IPAD, paperback or as Kim suggested, would make a cute sewing pouch.  I will definitely be making more of these!!

So my friend Joan is a wrapper…..a fabric wrapping rope wrapper :-)!!  She makes the most wonderful baskets and mats, and this past Wednesday at our friendship group this is what she made for me004 …… stinkin’ cute, and the flower is the perfect touch!  Maybe I did a bit of whining the week before when she made one for another friend….hmmm, I’m thinking the whining definitely paid off!!  I love it Joan..thanks so much!

My friend Carol made this cute quilt001 using the new Lorax fabric…and if you know the story, the trees are the perfect touch……60 trees to be exact!!  It’s her original design too!!

This coming Monday is tutorial Monday, and I have a list of wonderful tuts all set to share with you.

Happy Weekend everyone!

You have been a sewing maniac. Love the projects! I might just have to make myself a new case for my nook. Really cute. I'd whine for that basket, too. DARLING.

What a great FNSI you had! I love your iPad pouch. Mine is INCHING closer to finished. The Lorax quilt is adorable. Thank you for sharing!

I love that bookkeeper pouch and the trees turned out cute. When I was younger, the Lorax was one of my favorite Dr. Seuss stories.

Everything looks wonderful! I've wanted to try that wrapped rope stuff but I still haven't done it, and I think I used up the rope I bought for it! LOL
