401st post

I guess I really like to talk, huh? I noticed I had posted the 400th post on Sunday. I wish I had my act together well enough to offer some kind of give-away to celebrate like a lot of other bloggers do. I can barely keep up with what's going on in my real life, much less adding more to my virtual life. I do appreciate all of you who read my blog on a regular basis. I truly do like to do this if only to document what happens in my daily life.

So, here go more pictures. This little makeup purse was made for Judy to carry in her purse. I want to use my embroidery machine more this year, thus, the embroidered "STUFF".
Another pattern found in a magazine I just had to try. This purse is made with dishtowels. It turned out ok. I gave it a client today to give to her daughter who loves purses. I think teenagers especially would like this design, maybe in other colors.
I had two placemat tops made so I decided to make a tote. Most people use four to six placemats so I didn't want to make just two. Looks very summer-y, doesn't it.
I finished this top tonight for a new baby to be born anytime. Judy suggested I tie it, but I think I can quilt it faster.
I have a few more little projects that I finished this weekend, but I can't show them until somebody's birthday is past.

Now I'm working, too, on a BOM (block of the month). You can see the link in the top right corner of this page. I'd like to finish the block each month and either turn each block into a miniature quilt or put them all together at the end of the year. We'll see...

In the meantime, I'm also working on a crocheted blanket to go along with the sweater, booties and hat.
