Another little thing that I've been busy with is tiny "bead bags". We have an excellent Children's Hospital in the city near us. One of the neat things they do is to give every child a "bravery bead" every time they have to have a procedure done - x-rays, scans, bloodwork, chemo, etc. - and the kids need a place to keep those beads until they collect enough to make a necklace. That's where these little bags come in. I was asked a few weeks ago if I have fabric - YES! I do! Then I was asked to make some of these little bags - so these 14 are ready to go tomorrow morning.
Here's a close-up of some of the fun fabrics I used - and I have LOTS more cut and ready to sew up.
I have a BIG project in the works too - I'm testing a quilt pattern for my friend Cathy - it's called "Geese Around the Tulip Patch" (there's a pic on her blog!) - mine is in greens. I'll have a picture of my progress here in a day or two...Linking up to Quilty Folk, My Quilt Infatuation, and Quilting is more fun than housework.
