Bringing you handmade, farm-fresh living... without the tractor!

I had such a great time this weekend making projects. I took a holiday on Friday, so I had a nice extended weekend to mess around...
I spent a few hours at the laundromat washing all of the fabrics I had recently bought, and reading on my kindle. Then, I got home, did some ironing & I started by cutting up some squares of the feedsack fabric to make Kinley's blanket. I was super excited, and then & realized I misjudged the sizes. Oops! This is what happens when I think I don't really need to follow a pattern! So, after being a little frustrated, and not knowing how I was going to salvage that project, I set it aside and picked up a new one.
Took some fat quarters I had bought & created this quilttop:
It is the exact size of my table top, so I think I will make this into a sort of placemat/runner!
I set that aside & took a break to make some cupcake goodies for Easter dinner:
Then, I started working on an apron for the hostess. I had found this awesomely cute Campbell's soup fabric on sale:
So, I decided to make an apron/shopping bag duo:
They both turned out great & were so much fun to make!
