A few things...

I've finished a few projects and have started a few more....

My neighbors are getting married this summer and I thought I would make them a quilt for a wedding gift. I chose the Plain Spoken design but I'm not only using solids, I've thrown a few prints in there too...because those of us that are married know that rarely is anything 'plainly spoken'! Their colors are hot pink and black, btw, not my go to colors - but I love the way they work with the Engaged fabric from Alexander'll see!
I sooo love the wedding/engagement rings!
I will be backing with Henry's Toadstools in black - cause they are a bit hippy-ish if you get my drift!

I also made this purse - the Birdie Sling by Amy Butler, using Amy Butler home dec fabric...fabric and pattern from Pink Chalk.

I finished my mini quilt and sent it off to Utah on Wednesday....I kinda used it as a practice quilt to try my applique and embroidery skills...I was very happy with myself when I finished it - I almost kept it for myself!

And I finally finished the Sweet quilt for my lil sis!
