What I've Been Up To Lately!

Palace Doors, design and fabric by Amanda Murphy
I have been a busy gal lately, as you may have noticed by fewer tutorials. I was honored to sew a wall hanging for the fabric designer, Amanda Murphy, to help her out before the Houston Quilt Market. Since Market is over, I can mention it now and can show a photo. (My photo was taken very quickly so I could get it to the post office as soon as possible after finishing. It was a windy day, but I couldn't wait for the breeze to die down!) You can see all of Amanda's new fabric designs here.
I've also been participating in quite a few blog hops. They keep me thinking in new directions, like mental exercise. (And I certainly need all of that I can get!) I'll be posting Monday in the U R Priceless Blog Hop. I'll be showing you all the little coin purses I made using a variety of sew-in purse frames. If you are looking for ideas for gifts for the upcoming holidays, be sure and join us for this! I'm surprised at how much variety there can be with such a simple little frame. 
Beside that, I have been trying (along with others) to sew 200 tote bags for a charitable event. I certainly don't have to sew all 200 myself, but that is still a large number even for several of us. We are at about 166 now. We have a couple more weeks before we need to send them off! You can see more about that in this post.  
I'll also be blogging about a few ideas for the holidays very soon!
Until next time....

  1. I love the bright green and blue in that quilt. It caught my eye and I had to read the story. Be well. Lane

  2. Linda this quilt is beautiful. The more I read of your blog and all that you do...the more I am grateful for wonderful people like you! Blessings and Creative Bliss...

  3. Love the quilt! It's gorgeous and and reminds me of spring. Looking forward to the Christmas ideas. I need some to get into the spirit. Usually, at this time of the year I'm all ready to go, but somehow this year I'm lacking it. Have a great weekend.

  4. Linda. That fabric looked SO familiar and then I looked closely and I realized I have the same collection sent to me by Anna Griffin. Amanda Murphy's collection, Bella, is one I requested to sew a few things for my blog posts. I'll let you know when I get the photos up. I sewed two table runners and a beautiful box. Your quilt is beautiful. I'll include a link to this quilt when I post about the Amanda Murphy fabrics (hope next week). Your design is awesome!! Debby

  5. Linda, this is absolutely lovely!! what an honour too...

  6. This is so pretty and love the soft greens and blues!

  7. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the
    expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into
    it? Any help would be really appreciated!
