Little purses, postcard, and BOM




Hello,
     Last night I finally started the block of the month I have been wanting to do this year.  Actually there are two I want to make so I only partially started, but I did start.  I made the January block for the Bunny Hill design.  This isn't something I would normally make but it just called to when I saw it on her site.  She will add a new design monthly, each with a basket.  So far I have January and February and I think March comes out in the next couple of days.  I cut out January last night and sewed it today.  They don't take long as they are only 8 inches square finished.  Maybe I can cut out February tonight!  If I get caught up on this one than I can start the other.
     Joan, the amazing leader for the Quilt on a Budget group gave us a link this morning to the Sew Mama Sew website.  February was evidently fat quarter month (I'm always the last to know) and she has links to more than 100 projects to make with fat quarters.  I have several that I want to make but started with this cute little boxy pouch.  

 I used her tutorial but I added a lining and a little strap.  I made this late this afternoon.  It goes really fast!
     I also received another postcard today.  This was from Julie in the learningfa group.  They are such a great group.  Shirley is the leader of that group and her blog is always full of inspiration.  Don't you love Julie's postcard!  
 We are also doing a mystery quilt in that group which is another thing I have never done before.  We have 8 of the 10 steps now so it is almost finished.  I'll post a photo once it is complete.  Have a creative day! Janet

Janet,
Your little pouch is just too cute! I'm doing the mystery quilt too and am getting excited to see the finished top. I need to finish step 8 yet.
