Finished for Friday! Join the fun

I got a few little things done this week; here's a pair of shopping bags from the fabulous pattern on craftster. These will be a Christmas gift.


A little felt candle mat from the free pattern this month at Bird Brain Designs. I was going to give this as a gift, but I think I might keep it. I'm so selfish. I love their patterns.


Finally here is a simple little baby quilt I made for a special baby who is not yet born. Some kind of record for me, actually finishing a quilt before the baby arrives. I don't know if you can tell, but it's different dog-themed fabrics. All flannel, so very soft.


What have you finished up this week? Link up and tell us about a craft, or a book you've read, or a project of any kind. Let's celebrate the things we do that stay done (unlike laundry and dishes!).

The candle mat is so cute! I vote for keeping it. It's always fun to see your quilts. I didn't finish anything this week. But I did see the latest articles about Caribou Barbie. Interesting stuff. I hope she goes away now and we don't have to hear anymore about her. (I'm thinking I need to go make something right now.)

I love that baby quilt, its gorgeous! I just had a baby boy and my bff gave me a quilt that she knitted and my hubby bought me a gorgeous diamond ring from www.idonowidont.com as a birthing gift.

You're really talented, I love the bag pattern too!

P.S. the birthing gift idea was from the blog we read on that site:

Nice! I don't have anything *finished*, but definite progress made. I'll see if I can take a picture before the end of the day. ;-)

Man, I wish I had something to link to. I'm just so pleased with myself for having a weeks worth of posts! This retreat has given me FOUR weeks of posts actually, start to finish.

But I love this idea and I can't wait until the pre-posted retreat stuff is done and then I will really have to be productive again.

I can't believe all that you've gotten done. That's awesome!

Cheryl Lage said...

ThreeUnder, you are THE most productive person I know! Unbelievable stuff, and all purty.

My contribution this week may not "stay done," but I can hope, can't I?

Have a great weekend!

This is a real "duh" moment for me but.....I never considered quilting with flannel. Your quilt looks great. I will have to think about that for next time. There are so many cute flannels. I got in a flannel PJ pants groove a few years ago and made like 15 pair....just because I could not say no to the fabric.

Alisa said...

You are being super productive! Thanks for the motivation to keep moving. I love your stuff. I'm going to have more to add to my list for gift giving.

Thanks for coming by my "Busy Life of a Single Mom" blog and posting the recommendation for blood work. I'm going to be sure to keep up with anything I accomplish this week and try to remember to post my accomplishments! Thanks for thinking of me!!!

After our move this winter, I'm finally going to learn how to sew! LOL I learned a little bit in my Home Ec. class in middle school, although I had the most lop sided boxer shorts in class.

I want to start small - bandanas, aprons, skirts... any suggestions for websites?
