mini log cabins

Here was my project on Saturday. Soooooo fun to do. I think I'm going to make 9 different colors and sew them together to make a pillow for the family room. Our couch is white, and a pop of color would be fun! Each block is about 5x5. I had a blast picking out the fabrics from my scraps. It works well, because I can get a block done in about 45 min. so I can fit one in while no one is watching. LOL! The girls have been very high maintenance lately. That's okay, they will only be little for a short time more. have a fab day all. Don't forget to talk to Jesus!

I knew you would like making log cabin! I made three pincushions during the weekend. hugs Mette

these are gorgeous! I wish I knew how to sew for real!

To answer your questions on my blog about my Valentine's day book, I included both photos (wallet size above the "i love you" sentiment) on each page. The book start to finish only took me a couple of hours because I'm so slow with hand-sewing. I'm glad that you were inspired by my project though! If you choose to make one, please share it with me, I'd love to see!!
