On track.

I'm going to get all cocky and full of myself and my ability to stay on track with ONE of my block of the month projects if I don't watch it. 

This past week I finished the 2nd block (on the right) of the Little Red Barn block of the month project within days of receiving it in the mail.  Yea, me. 

In other news....

My Santa Sack exchange partner let me know that she got her bag so I can safely show that project.  Check out the button on the sidebar for more details about this exchange.
There are 2 surprises tucked inside.  Over the next few months I will continue to send little gifts to fill (and probably over flow) the bag.  I am sending a mix of purchased and made-be-me items that Betsy can open at Christmas. 

I made this cute bag that somehow reminded me of an elf's shirt. 
It's called The Shirt off My Back bag from Fresh Fabric Treats.  The smaller bag is the first one I made following the pattern.  The one for Betsy was made by enlarging the pattern by 25%.  Cute, aren't they? (And easy?  Oh, so easy.  It's the clever additions of the prairie points for the collar and the tuck with buttons that make it so clever looking.) 
Now, back to the sewing room where I just cut out the pieces for the 5th of the 6 Prairie Women's Sewing Circle projects. 


  1. Oh my... aren't those bags the cutest?!! Great job! :^) I'll have to show them to the "sewer" in our cross stitch group for sure!

  2. Great job on keeping up with your block a month goal, Pam--I really like the barn with the quilt and that giant sunflower.

    And those bags are the cutest--sure wish I knew how to sew like you :)

  3. Your quilt blocks are gorgeous! And, the bags are just adorable! I'm sure your partner must be thrilled with it.

  4. Love those bags - they're adorable!
