Back to the t-shirt quilt
It is the end of February already! Where did the month go? I am now back to working on the t-shirt quilt for my niece. I just need to finish stitching her Girl Scout sash and Brownie vest on to the back of the quilt. Get a label on it and the quilt will be done.

1st quilt finish for 2023
Geeze!! It sure took me long enough to get my first quilt finish for 2023! Not that I haven't been busy. I forgot to measure this, but it's a good size and will be useful still when the baby becomes a toddler.

My nephew who is the musician, stopped over last night and brought me some projects that need my expertise. Two of his keyboard cases need repaired. Fixing this zipper should not be a problem.

Fabric and latest cross stitch project
I have to quit looking at fabric, but when you find a good deal out comes the credit card! LOL!! I saw this fabric and I just had to buy some. I actually thought the background was white when I saw it online, but it is arrived it is a light gray. The fabric has a beautiful hand. I bought 3 yards and even with shipping it comes out to about $6.50 a yard which is a great deal.

Wound bobbins and got started on quilting that chevron baby quilt. The baby is due March 9th, but I would like to have it finished by the end of the month.

Tote bags, boxy pouch, pockets - the sewing machine got a workout!
What a weekend! First, I had to do some cleaning before my friend came over on Saturday. We worked on tote bags. I had a lot of bags already cut out, so she did the pressing and I did the sewing. She then cut some bags out of fabric that was given to me. We ended up getting 16 done. I kept at the bags on Saturday and Sunday and ended up with 31 finished. I am now caught up with my goal of 10 bags every Sunday.

A new project, a finish, and it's the weekend!
A co-worker asked if I could add a pocket to some flannel shirts for her mother. Her Mom had a stroke last year. She gets cold easily and cannot use her left arm very well. She has a couple other shirts that have a pocket so she can carry a fork to the dinner table or carry her phone, but she has four with no pockets so she won't wear them. I found some solid colored flannel to match the shirts so I plan on getting pockets sewn on these this weekend.

I got the Vintage Buttons small done this morning before work - YEAH! I will hand it off on Saturday when my friend comes over. We will find some fabric out of my stash for the back, and I will give her some stuffing and ground walnut shells. Her sister will supply the buttons.
