Look what i made! :o)

I have been so busy sewing that I forgot to mention that I figured out the problem with my new sewing machine....it was the thread! I got a 14 pack of gutermann thread on clearance. My machine didn't like the brown I guess...the other colors work fine! I have worked on several little things. I made a very simple skirt, I have been promising a certain 4yo I would make her kitty nightgown...we purchased the fabric back in the summer. But the main thing I have been working on is a quilted bag. I like how it turned out. :o) watch for more bags in the near future! dh is making me a website, I am going to start selling my quilted items. The embroidered chickadee on this bag is exclusive to this bag only! :o) it was given to me by a friend especially for this bag.

also...i am looking for ideas for a lighthouse quilt. I have an order for one, Joann's doesn't have any lighthouse fabric right now...or quilt books.

Ooo, so cute! I have to get to my machine now. I'm so behind in stuff I want to sew. Keep us updated on the bags and your website.
