Scrap Sewing for little sister...

 Dia Duit, this is what I have been working on today. Awhile back, some lovely friends gave me some Bonnie and Camille fabric, to help me start a stash. To help little sister along the way, I joined the scrappy fabrics. Loaded it on the quilting frame, borrowed the backing and wadding from the bubba's humidcrib quilts. On my way, just love this fmp pattern.

I cut the fabric into a grab bag, purse, sewing wallet and mug rug, plus the binding.The rest is upto little sister now to complete for her gift giving.  Little sisters partner, has had two lots of kidney surgery and is back in for a third go. My thoughts and prayers that all goes well for Rick. Colleen plans to do this while Rick recuperates.
