Flower for Addie

These flowers are from Amy Butler's Uptown Handbag pattern. I just LOVE making these. They require a very small amount of material and take just an hour (if that) to make. I attached this one to an alligator clip and stuck it in Red's hair. She likes it enough to let me take her picture.

Yep. I am supposed to be making some headway on my project for Tracey's We the People Swap #4...Have I? Nope. I was never a procrastinator, so I'm not sure why I'm having such a hard time getting started. I have the best partner (it's Tracey!!!) so I want to do an extra good job on this bag. Hmmm. I will get started soon. Maybe tomorrow. :) I'll keep you posted on my progress.

I did make these really cute frogs for the kids' Valentine's Day gifts. The pattern is Frog Patch from Me and My Sister Designs. I am by no means a quilter (although the stuff Marlene does could make me try to be), but MFFS (my favorite fabric shop) has one of the frogs made up and the kids just love holding I broke down and bought the pattern (it's actually a quilt pattern). Basically you piece together the top, quilt it, and then assemble the frog and fill it with poly pellets. They turned out pretty cute.

Also, I will post some pictures soon of a dress that I hope to finish up for Addie soon. I've been working on it for ages...but I'm almost there!!!
