Funny how when we make some money we spend some money. Love the tote and the coupon clutch. You've been busy!

My to-do list includes making the exact wreath and hanging it and quilts like Rachel showed in her tutorial. Yours looks great!

By the way, where do you find the lovely wrought iron plate racks. I've never shopped for such a thing.

Kate said...

I made that same wreath for Christmas, it's amazing how much fabric it uses isn't it?
I love your little bags they are so sweet.
Have a great week

Trisha said...

I have been eyeing the birdie sling pattern, I am jealous that you have it. I might just have to go get it. I really like the fabric you are going to use. Can't wait to see it all done.

PS I heart your fabric wreath, great job!!!

Christine said...

Oh love the wreath!!! I'll have to make it down to Spool sometime- I've never been. I can't wait to see your bag- I took a class to make her Weekender bag @ CQW. I broke 4 needles!! I hope you have better luck then I did! :) ~Christine

Kim Brackett said...

Yaaayy!! At least you used more than you bought! I love your plate racks, and REALLY love the quilts hanging from them.

Angela Nash said...

Ooh - can't wait to see your Make Life project. Love what I've seen of that line so far.

Patty said...

I like your wreath, that 's on my to do list as well. The cupon cluthces a re adorable.

Audrie said...

I'm so dying for Make Life to be released!

Meh who could blame you for buying fabric... I've been avoiding my LQS because I never leave empty-handed.

Hey, at least you've got great taste. I have the same LOVE and the Birdie Sling pattern.
The clutches look great.
Happy sewing,
