Works in Progress!

This weekend I finished a pair of gift bags, 
along with fabric covered button hair binders --
birthday gifts for a set of twins.

 And I'm so happy to have this little quilt finished!
This New York Beauty block (#4) was really fun to make.
I'll devote another full post to this soon!

 And it's that time of year to start making
end-of-the-year teacher gifts!
Last year I made these book bags for my girls' teachers,
 so I figured I'd make a few more this year, too.
The "Read" is a bit funky --
 not sure if I'm in love with it or not.
I sort of paper pieced,
 sort of free hand pieced these blocks.
I love the brown print for the "bookshelves"  though!
