My "crummy" background is coming together!

Four things to be happy about:
(1) drinking coffee from a bowl
(2) everyday heroes
(3) fondue with toasted bread
(4) preparing a special present

First a correction!!  In my last post I showed a lap quilt with this text:

This is a little lap quilt I use sometimes when I'm working at the computer, it gets a bit chilly in the room I work in.  It's a bit frayed around the edges because they've been "loved off."

Does it look sort of familiar??  Just saying! ;o)

Just to be clear, when Madame Samm created my banner, she didn't model it after a quilt I own!  The design for my banner came 100% from the ideas in her head, the kindness of her heart, and the talent in her fingers!  When I showed my quilt it was to reinforce why I'm still in awe when I see my banner.  She had no way of knowing that I even use a lap quilt when I'm working, or the color, or the way I wore my hair ... I tell you it's truly amazing!  :o)

And now, to the "crummy" part of my post! 

I pieced the blocks I showed earlier into bigger blocks and even bigger blocks to make a large block for the background of my brown bag quilt:

It still doesn't look like much but better days are coming, LOL.  That's all I'll show on this one for awhile, have to wait til it's prettier!

Last year I participated in a shoe block swap, here are a few of the ones I got:

what's not to like about these cute ballet slippers!!?

and this slipper... tres magnifique!

this shoe was made for serious partying!

I did this one; that's netting around the top.

Sew forth and sew on til later!
