Loving the beach....

Yes!  Those are my toes!  Covered with one of my favorite things....sand!
I love water...especially when it is attached to a really big body of water.
Ok...enough with the toes.
This is what I want you to see.....
My baby rag quilt.
I had most of it together before we went to Florida....but I couldn't wait to get it finished, washed and dried.  I love it.
I also worked on my twister mug rugs....
I love my little everyone knows...and these little mug rugs are a great way to play with different fabrics on a small scale....easy to pack up for a get-a-way.
I am trying to make a different one for everyone in my garden club.
But I also tried a new project...
I love this fabric at Mama's Quilt Shop and I want to make something soft and antique looking out of I tried Tricia Cribbs.  I always make just one square to see how it is going to look...and I loved it.  I have cut out the squares that I need to make a lap size throw for my living room and I really am looking forward to putting it together.  It came out so soft.  I am planning on using this orphan block on a pillow or tote. 
Ok...if you stayed with me this long...hop on over to Bits and Pieces, our blog for the quilt shop and check out my surprise give-a-way....
Have a great day!
