Having a storm in the Gulf does make folks around here sit up and take notice. I've felt that invisible energy that generates when people are thinking about what they need to do. Well, we are spared this time, but maybe I'd better stock up on Spam just to be sure. And batteries. Maybe some water, too.

Not being much of a traditional quilter, I first thought that I'd never be able to construct such a complicated block. Well, with lots of patience and a nearby seam ripper, I managed to get one done. I've also been doing some BOM blocks from one of my favorite shops - FabricsnQuilts - and that's given me more confidence and practice in piecing blocks. Since the first ribbon block, I've assembled two more and it gets a bit easier with each one. I admit that I'm spatially challenged and have to really look at the pictures and compare them with the pieces that I have. It's been fun and gives me a great sense of accomplishment when my block closely resembles the pictures.
Please stay tuned for details on the charity auction. All of the proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation as they have in our previous auctions.

I used some of my favorite fabric in the whole world, "Rose Garden Tea", to make this little bag. The lining is a pink, green and cream windowpane plaid. Go check out my Etsy listing for more details and pics http://www.etsy.com/listing/48649997/rose-garden-small-zipper-bag-with-beaded

This bag is the perfect size for sewing supplies, cosmetics, lingerie or whatever. I think it would make a cute gift bag to fill with wonderful goodies for a special friend. It has a velcro closure and a cute floral button.
If you would like one in a special fabric, just let me know. I can make them from strips or from one piece of fabric.
