Tote bag fabric, floss, and t-shirts

No progress on the odds and ends quilt; I had a hair appointment after work so I didnt' get home until after 7. What I do have to show is a box that arrived
One of my blog readers sent me this box of fabric she no longer had a use for so I could use it for tote bags. It will make some very cool bags!
She also sent me this cute cross stitch chart! I can't wait to stitch it!
On my way home from the salon, I did stop at Michael's and get the floss I needed to finish the Irish Blessing piece. I also picked up two more skeins of black for the deer cushion cover. I have used almost two skeins of floss already and I am not even close to being halfway done. Since I am doing the design again in a varigated thread I picked up two more skeins of that too.
Here is the progress I have made on the deer cushion cover - the where I was last time I posted picture and where I am now.
I was handed a bag of shirts for the next commission t-shirt quilt. The way the fellow had talked I though he would have a big bag of shirts. Instead it was a little bag of little shirts! I will be making a twin sized quilt out of these shirts and a pair of kids camouflaged overalls.

Those fabrics are going to make a lot of tote bags! The prints are perfect for bags.

Yay! The box arrived safe and sound. Sounds like you can use it all so that is GREAT!! I thought you might like the cross stitch....glad I sent it along as an LS (little surprise). It will fun to see the newest commission develop as I suspect it will have a different look with the smaller t-shirts/jerseys.

Some people have no concept of how much fabric it takes to make a quilt. The guy probably thought that was a lot of shirts.
