Two Finishes This Week!

 Linking up again this week to 
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

 I have been very productive this week--I think the hormones have aligned to create clarity, focus and energy--a rare treat in my world :)

So 'Ellie's Garden' is finished! I decided to save myself $100 and a week of waiting and quilt it myself (remember the hormones). It took me about 6 hours total to meander stitch this.



A little use of sashing scraps on the back....


 I added the label on Sunday morning with a little help from Google.....






 And I gave it to Ellie after church!  She loves it! It is going to go to the hospital with her this week when she starts Chemo. I have added her blog to the sidebar--it is called 'Counting My Blessings'--if you want to follow along on her journey through cancer--I think you will be inspired--she is a very neat lady!

I finished the safe delivery kits for Craft Hope project number #11.
I made two more little receiving blankets...

and divided everything up....
boxed it up and sent it out!  Feels good to have that done!



Project number three is a birthday quilt for Dallas.  It is peace themed--read more about it here


The good news is that the pillow is done--huh?  Why in the world did I make a pillow yesterday? Hormones.

Happy Sewing all!
