A Few of the Things I've Been Working On

These are a few of the things that I've been working on this week...
This is a crocheted bag that really gave me a workout.
I used a size N crochet hook and 2" strips of fabric. It needs some finishing, but overall, I'm pretty happy with the way it truned out. One of my co-workers, a guy, said it was, "very Springy".
I jumped on the band wagon with Amanda Jean and her block-a-day Quilt Along.

This will be a simple quilt, just 9 patch blocks, and we will be making one a day. I will be using fabric that is in my stash, as much as I can. It will be BRIGHT! The perfect Summer Quilt;)

This is a quilt top, minus the borders that I'm working on for one of my granddaughters.

It went together very fast. Now all I have to do is figure out what to use for the borders and the back. I have a couple of blocks, that didn't get used on the front, that will be going into the back of the quilt. I love a pieced back with a little suprise sewn in here and there.
We had a really good rain storm this past Saturday and we're supposed to get another one tonight. I guess this means that we'll have lots and lots of May Flowers;)
I just hope that it doesn't get too hot too fast and the flowers wilt.
Here's to a great week with lots of sewing time worked in;)

Is that Woodland Bloom in that cute pink quilt? Your crocheted bag is really cute. I'm joining Amandajean's quilt-a-long too -- I hope I can keep up!

I love the crocheted bag - your co-worker was right when he said it was springy! How very astute for a man, lol. The quilt top is beautiful too.
