My "RUSH" project!

My "RUSH" project is finished, yesterday I joined Karen's "Sister in the Bloggerette Sorority" from http://somedaysarediamonds/ 
 you were to use this photo and make something with it and add a picture of yourself. It was suppose to be done by today if possible so, I made this pillow because it was the quickest thing to make and I used a picture of myself that I had made into a vintage picture sort of appropriate don't you think! Thanks Karen for coming up with this fun idea, I'm really looking forward to new things to do and to see eveyone else's projects. If your interested in joining go to Karen's blog and sign up it's not too late the more the merrier.

The cheerleader's from our local high school do face painting to raise $$$$$ and lot's of vendor's selling all that yummy, greasy fair food it's quite a big event and my oldest grandson set up a lemonade stand his first business adventure and he did real well he got bored after awhile but did stick with it.

A little Somethin' Jacket

This is my latest project " A little Somethin Jacket" is the name of the pattern my good friend Sandy of "Sandy In Stitches" & I went last week to our local quilt shop "Little Red Quilt House" to make it. The owner's of the shop Karen & Carol belong to the Quilt Guild we belong too "Material Girls" isn't that a neat name...well on to the jacket Carol was the instructor for the class, the fabric is "Martinique" by 3 Sisters for Moda. We got most of the construction of the jacket done in class and just had to finish the hand work at home. I had a Jelly roll of the same fabric so what's a new jacket without a new purse to go with it and you know me and purses we go hand in hand love 'em love'em and the little pin I made using my Sissix Big Kick flower die so there you have it but it's been way toooooooo hot to wear it yet!
