Shamrock Finished!

“May the dreams you hold dearest be those which come true, and the kindness you spread keep returning to you.” — Irish blessing


Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!  

Remember this project?

Shamrock Stem

I finished it up with a simple cross hatch using the walking foot, and it now resides on my dining table.

Quilt On!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand. -Irish Blessing

Clam Shell Purses

The Clam Shell Accessories Case Clover pattern reminded me of my childhood days when I had a rubber coin purse.  Squeeze the purse to reveal an opening for the coins.  

I thought it would be fun to use the scraps left over from sewing aprons for my grandaughters and make a couple of these cases. 

I’m embellishing with embroidery, beads and buttons.  The plain one obviously still needs embellishment, but I wanted to show the difference.  You can certainly be very creative with these cases!

I’m making the largest size; there is alot of room in there!  Of course, I’m going on a treasure hunt for trinkets that little girls would like, but these would make very nice sewing kits.

They are quite durable and fun.
