In Less Than Two Hours...

Yesterday, I wanted to put together a quilt top for myself quickly! I bought Bandana's from Dollar Tree... they were sold in packages of 2... and whipped up a quick top. It's not perfect and I love it! What do you think? Here are a few more shots of it:

The Beach Bag that I Made

For the Beach Tote Swap, This is the Tote that I made and sent out. It included a beach towel, a drink holder, a personal fan, water balls, hair clips, a Fat Quarter, Sunblock and After Sun Lotion, a dolphin air freshner and a few post cards from the beaches that I visit most frequently as well as one from New Orleans and one that had the Sand Dollar Legend on it!

I'm very tempted to go buy the same fabrics to make myself one just like this one! I enjoyed making the bag very much!

Beach Tote Swap

In the Yahoo group (Quiltblockswappers) that I'm Co-Owner and Moderator of, we just finished up a Beach Tote Swap. It was a ton of fun!

This is the bag that I received from Julie. I love the bright colors! Inside the bag were post cards from Oregon beaches along with a travel guide, also there were Oregon made chocolates. She included fabric made for a local shop hop that she was attending. She also made a journal cover and a loyalty wallet to match! I love my bag and I'm ready to go to the beach with it! I'm sure that I will use it for other things too as it's really "me" and very very pretty! I couldn't have asked for a better bag! Thanks, Julie!
