In keeping with my leisurely pace this year, I have a couple small-ish finishes to share today!
My Mother's birthday is later this month so I thought I would make her a couple little somethings.
I knew I wanted to make her a zippered pouch. She makes frequent overnight trips to various of my sisters' homes, and I thought it might be useful for those.
Four charms from Lotta Jansdotter's Sylvia collection and a couple 2" strips of osnaburg
I used a 7" zipper, and it measures 8.5" x 5.75"
I also wanted to make her a summer "wreath". She won a quilted Christmas Wreath in a silent auction and was so tickled with it, I thought this ever-sweet pattern would be perfect for the warmer season!
It has rather over-sized corner tabs for hanging. I hope it will fit over the same framed picture in her entry as the Christmas one did.
In keeping with the first of this pattern that I made and called "Winter Sparkle",
I call this one "Summer Frolic" :)
I used five 5" charms of Basic Grey's PB&J, and one 5" charm of their Persimmon, along with another Persimmon print for the binding.
It ended up measuring 22" x 22"
I also made up a drawstring bag for my Hoosier friend, Hannah, whose birthday is also this month.
The boys put in a few things, including a handmade coyote call and some candies to sweeten the package.
It was very fun to use a couple of those fat quarters I won awhile back.

Wishing my Mom and Hannah the happiest of birthdays!
