Managed some more sewing

 well today I got to make a cell phone case and then I got the bag  by Pink Penguin made, it is a lunch bag on her tutorial. But it reminds me of the  hair roller bags we used to buy years ago. so cute thought. I will use it for something.I will see if I have picture of the both of them
Cell phone case is a iron on interfacing panel from Quilt Smart.You get three of them  does not fit the larger I phones  but the ones from last year and such are fine. I am sure I can alter the size.  we shall see. I like them both.I think I will make the Samsung tote next from Quilt Smart/ cool stuff they have.
I am giving the phone case a dear friend who lives in Washington state Will mail it out tomorrow to her.

A tad of sewing

I am doing the Sew Along with Lori Holt and the  day before the sew along she gave directions for us to make a pin cushion using a block from her new book Farm Girl Vintage. I have been pretty sick all week and really wanted to sew but had to do this in a few minutes at a time. Been to nauseated to move around very long. I like it and it is finished. Maybe tomorrow i can sit long enough to make the first two blocks. I also bought her fat quarter bundle to make the blocks in the book. She has used a polka dot for background different colors but I think I will use Kona Snow or  Bella White. I spent 3/4 of the month of April in Washington visiting my son  and seeing my grand daughters. they are so fun. They are thinking of moving back to the Ohio area but he would rather go to AZ it is much warmer year around there. He told the Honey they could come here for a year at least a winter and then she may change her mind due to how long and cold most of the winters are.
 I took some photos and videos of the girls jumping and playing and singing.. Gosh they have grown so fast. below is a photo of my pincushion. sure came out nice.
I will upload the pics and videos from phone and then post them in a day or so  so come on back and take a look them. thanks everyone.
