A New Way to Wrap!

While I was studying, I had a great idea of how to wrap a book with fabric! Anyone that has received a present from me within about hte last year or so knows that I have tried to give up paper wrapping and paper bag wrapping and have started making all my gift bags. Hopefully, these bags will get reused by the next person… Have to throw out a thanks to my pal Kerry for inspiring this obsession! :) Well, I don’t like my bags for flat things like books. So during my crazy studying I came up with a new idea…  It was super easy and fast. It’s a fold over pouch with ribbons! I think it took about a half hour or so.   I was so excited with how it turned out. Yes, I get way too excited over my gift bags….

(and I don’t want to hear anything about the wrinkles!)

Quilting Again…

I don’ t have any finished project to write about, but I’m just so excited to be crafting rather than studying I had to write something!!! Our family is such a happier family when I’m being crafty versus studying…

Here’s a sneak peek of what I have been working on since I took that exam.

I’m trying out the stitch in the ditch quilting method. They make special feet just for this, but I said no, I don’t need that! Now I know why they have it and why I’d like to have one! It would make quilting this way easier…

I still can’t show the whole thing, since it’s a present and I don’t want them to see it until it’s complete…. :)
