applique and an owl

I'm just brilliant at post titles but at least it describes my finishes this week!

First I finished up this little zip bag for a gift, I actually did two (the other one has a 'D' on it) but failed to take a picture before the party.

I used some scraps and followed the open wide zippered pouch tutorial by Noodlehead, so much easier for little hands to open and close I think.


That's a check off my FAL list!

I also got the little October owl finished for my Woodland Sampler. I adore those oak leaves.


I'm really hoping to make some quilting progress this weekend. I'm overwhelmed by projects so I'm going to really try and focus and do one at a time (HA!).


Linking up:

at Quilt Matters this week

and finish it up friday at Crazy Mom Quilts

  1. Cute cute cute! Love the owls. And how clever of you to make the open wide pouch tall rather than wide.

  10. I love the owl! It's so cute! Every time I see this sampler I want to make it. But I have never ever finished a cross stitch I've started so I keep telling myself no. I'm wondering if I will break down and get the pattern or the year will end first. :)

  11. I can never quilt one project at a time. Will check back to see how many you are doing at one time. The zippered pouch is cute and the owl is great.
