Raegan's Baby Quilt and other cute stuff...

Even though we have the house for sale and I have to keep it clean, I am still working in my craft room (I just try to keep the mess contained). My newest project is a baby quilt for my dear friend Raegan who is having her first girl. I love how the quilt is turning out so far. This has to be some of the cutest fabric I have worked with. Not sure what is going on with the back yet but I have some ideas.

I also finished my Heather Ross Mini quilt for the swap. We are also including a little handmade item. I made a little zipper key chain pouch. I hope my swap partner likes it.

Today in the mail I received a package of material to make a block for my first quilting be. The fabric is so cute and I can't wait to start!
Back to cleaning the house. We have a showing tonight! Keep your fingers crossed....

Good News and a Stacked Coin Quilt

So the good news is - My husband just accepted a job in Fort Worth, Tx! We are so excited to be moving but will miss the friends we have made here in PA ( I will not miss the winters!). Now for the fun part of selling our house. So if anybody knows of anybody wanting to move to beautiful Nazareth, PA, we have a house to sell them. Now I will have to keep my sewing room clean!

I did finish a project last week that has been sitting around the house for about a year. I finally got the binding on my stacked coin quilt! I love how it turned out and it is perfect for this fall!

I have also opened up my Etsy store. I have a few items in it and will be adding more soon. I was planning to have a "grand- opening" and a give-away but with all the moving excitement I haven't had time. But I promise a give-away is coming soon!

I will leave you with a little sneak-peak of one of the blocks of my Heather Ross mini-quilt. The Quilt is almost finished. Only one side of the binding left to do!

Happy Munki Munki Day!

I hit the Munki Munki pajama jackpot at Marshall's today! I am so excited! For those of you who quilt, you know why I am so excited. For those of you who don't let me explain.... Munki Munki is a brand of PJ's. You can find them at some small boutiques and on-line. One of my favorite fabric designers, Heather Ross, designed some of the cutest fabrics that they have used for their PJ's. This fabric has now become very hard to find! The PJ's run around $80 (Ouch!) on line and go for higher than that on ebay. So when I found out that they are selling the PJ's at Marshall's for a lot less ($17 Wow!) I had to go and see what they had!

I got lucky! They had the aliens, sushi & cats. I don't know which is my favorite! I bought some to wear (cause they are so cute), some to cut up to use and to swap.

Oh, and the day just got even better when I checked the mail. I got materials to make Key Fob's for my Etsy store which I hope to open very, very soon. So stay tuned!!

Another Project Finished!!

I finally finished my mini-quilt for the Good Ol' Summertime mini-quilt swap. I love it so much that I almost want to keep it but I know it is going to a good home. I hope my swap partner likes it as much as I do. 

I have all of the buttercup bags made for my Etsy store! Now all I need to do is take photos and open for business. My goal is to have it up by mid next week.
Now for the rest of my projects:
 - Finish Heather Ross Mini-Quilt for swap (it is soo cute!)
 - Make a little extra something for the Heather Ross Mini-Quilt swap
 - Start on Reagans Baby Quilt
 - Start on my Orange & White Quilt (finally something for me!)

Whew!! I am tired just thinking about it. Well back to sewing!
