All About Me!!!!

Good morning everyone!  I hope we are finding you all in a wonderful state today..You should find some really different pieces during this hop;it was quite strange for me. I had a difficult time figuring out just what I wanted to do with this one. But alas!!!!! lol

We owe our thanks to Madame Samm and Marlene for this blog hop. I am still grinning, thinking about what creations we are going to see.
These ladies do an exceptional job organizing these hops....a big whoo hoo for you girls!!!!

Now; on to mine: The first one is put together as a little wall hanging, which is in my sewing room now.  It was kind of a test piece for me too...I used stripe fabrics to show the bias.



Now I never said she was pretty....lol!!!!!  I did a little straight line quilting on this one.

Now the second piece is a tote bag; which I plan on using for carrying my projects back and forth  for our sewing nights.



This is quilted with straight lines on the diagonal....and I stitched those little pieces on to show what I am interested in.  As you can see......heels take priority. I know my sewing buddies are laughing now....lol.  I couldn't resist.  The flowers and butterfly represent the gardening I like to do.  Sorry my stitching above her doesn't show up enough...I does say 'I'm a little'   but not dark enough...

Here is the list for today:
