Friday Finishes

Granted these were new projects, and not very big ones, but they still count :)

Heidi at Fabric Mutt is hosting the Girl Friday Sews Blog Hop.  While I'm not actually part of the hop, I though it was a great excuse to make myself a new mug rug.  The one that I had was my very first "prototype" and not really my style.  My poor office was in desperate need of some decorating.  The boss has been saying that we're moving for about 4 years so I've never bothered to hang anything on the walls, or do much of anything I'm told that it really will happen.  And within the next 60 days!  I can't wait to see my new space and start making it my own!  I used some Heather Ross scraps in a sort of log cabin type pattern and straight line quilting.  I'm loving it!

I signed up for a monthly charm pack club and although the Happy Tones that I received last month is a cute collection, it's not something I see myself making a quilt or large project with.  I decided to play around and see if I could make some tiny open wide pouches (4.25" x 4" x 1.75") using the tutorial from Noodlehead.  I think they're kind of idea what I'll do with them, but still :)

Joining in the fun at TGIFF with Quokka Quilts.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. I am guilty of not decorating my office for a similar reason -- they keep telling up they are going to paint but out office is the only department in the building that has not been painted yet. Now we are coming up on a potential move so alas I sit in my stark white room staring at colorful things online.

  2. oooh heather ross!!! love that fishy! cute bags :)
