On a lighter note.

Though I didn't have a day of unfettered crafting on Mother's Day, I did manage to whip up a couple things.

First: A small pouch for my new camer. I've been nagging my husband that I'd like something smaller to keep in my purse. Now, I have it. He told me that they make pouches, but really... Isn't this cuter?



And see that? It's a real button and button hole - no more velcro for me. Well, at least not as much!

Both of the fabrics are from my stash. I used leftover batting from a quilt to give it a little cushion.



And, my "Baby" wanted a blanket for her baby. All of this was once again, in my stash, including the leftover batting.



And of course, baby needs a pillow.

It was fun to do a couple quick projects and see them to fruition the same day.

Not much else. Yesterday I started a duvet cover for our down comforter. The Toddler tried to paint her own toe nails on my bed, and now I have both pink and red nail polish on it.

The upside is it was a comforter I bought five years ago from overstock.com for $50.

The down side is I'm working with seven yards of 90" material. That's a lot of material. All I have left are the button holes and buttons. Husband asked if it was what I 'wanted.' I told him I didn't want a new comforter right now. Maybe when I re-do the bedroom I will, but right now I like the $25 dollar fix, versus the cost of a new comforter.

You are brave. I totaly cheated and did the two flat sheets sewn together thing for my duvet cover. 'Taint pretty, but it works. Of course I wasn't inspired by luscious fabic like those violet petal remnants uyou used. Love the pouch!
