Joy's Bean Bag (corn bag?)

Joy sat down at the sewing machine today and sewed this little bean bag with no help at all from me. I did help her fill it with dried corn, just held the bag while she poured the corn in... then I started whip stitching it closed, but she did almost all of that while I held it still for her. I went back over her stitches with a row of running stitches just to be on the safe side (I do that to my own bean bags). I am very proud of her!

Donation Quilts

"Spinning Feathers"  this baby quilt is going to Powerhouse for Kids! 


Sewing projects for others

This is a cape I threw together for one of my friends... turned out better than I thought it would, considering the fact I had to make it in under an hour and with no sewing machine!  (I really really love my friend Tammy and her son Blaze!)
