WOW – June 11, 2014

This time of year is always so busy with graduations and the end of the school year.  It seems like we are going to something every night of the week. I’m really looking forward to the summer and less on my calendar.  I have been doing quite a bit of sewing between track banquets and band concerts. This first thing I want to show you is the finished quilt for my son’s girlfriend she is graduating from Lynnwood High School.  She is very much into biology and will be going to university to be a veterinarian. I finished this about two weeks ago but just did not get aground to taking any photos.

This is the label of the quilt I named it Megangitis and designed a virus to match the owner. Making quilts like this is my favorite thing to do.  I love when the design is all mine and I’ve captured the recipient this well.
This last week I went crazy making little make up bags.  I have so many birthdays and graduation party to go to I decided to make a little bag for everyone.  They are perfect to hold a gift card or money or just by themselves for a personal gift.

Lastly last night I made chocolate salted caramel cupcakes we will be eating them tonight for my daughters boyfriend’s birthday. She made a big lasagna for dinner so we will be having a feast tonight.

I have the busiest week to come. Friday is my daughter-in –law to be university graduation and Saturday is her party.  Sunday I will be having my family over for Father’s day brunch and then going to Megan’s graduation party.  Well wish me luck with everything.  

Have a wonderful week.

  1. So busy! I love your little bags, especially the foxy one :D And the best quilts are always the quirky personal ones - I never imagined meningitis could look so cute, haha!
