brown bag quilt swap

Brown Baggin’ It….cont’d (again ;) )

So, I’ve made progress this week!  Amid racking my brain for my business, taking orders, and working on orders, I’ve saved my late nights for my Brown Bag quilt.  This weekend I’m gonna be taking some naps for sure! 

I sliced up some fabric and made some strip sets, laid them out here so you could see how they work together. ๐Ÿ™‚

No basket weaves here, people.  Just seeing how it works together, and making sure the black makes enough of a statement.  Next order of duty, cut these babies up!

Aaaannnnddddd sew them back together again! ๐Ÿ™‚

How am I able to do this at night, when the house is quiet, and no one is calling, “Momma?”
Say hello to my friend….

Yeah, baby!   I’m starting to piece the blocks now, just have to decide how to set them, may have to ask for some help from someone with an analytical mind. ๐Ÿ˜‰  Later, gator!

Brown Baggin’ It cont’d…..

Here’s what I’ve got completed so far.

My lovely half square triangles.  Hoping the black will read like more of solid, after it all comes together.  I pulled the black with fall leaves from my stash, it was Sweet Memory’s.

And, now…. It’s time to slice the ham!

Hehehe. ;))  Hope that’s not too offensive to all you piggy lovers and collectors.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Brown Baggin’ It

It feels great to be back to “normal,” whatever that is. ๐Ÿ˜‰ For the last two weeks our lives have been consumed with…

So, none of you knew I got a sweet package in the mail last week! ๐Ÿ˜‰  It was from Amanda, in New York.   My kids are amazed that someone I do not know would send me something in the mail. 
With this lovely card, that she made, and she sells on etsy, her shop is here.

Now, if you haven’t signed up for the Brown Bag Quilt Swap, yet, there’s still time! ๐Ÿ™‚  Just click on the button, it’ll take you where you need to go.
Wanna see what was in the box? Well, here it is.

And, of course, there’s always a ringer…pigs, pink pigs. Lol!

Just a little to bright for me, so I gave them a bath.  After all, who has ever seen clean pigs? So first I got them wet.  Then, I put them into a bath of… Yep, that’s right, coffee.

Just enough to take a little of the brightness out. Yeah, I added one tea bag just for good measure. ๐Ÿ™‚
Then out they came, just a little more subtle.  Whatta ya think?

I’m already working on my quilt, working late into the night, last night.  All the while playing Words…with Friends.  ๐Ÿ˜‰  
More to come…stay tuned.
