2 finishes and 1 funny

I finished the rainbow string quilt yesterday. It's been washed and rinsed with Downy and is soft and comfy. Grandson Braeden approves.
On the back, I used some of this giant length of shamrock thrift store fabric
I think the 3 leaf shamrocks that legend says St. Patrick used to teach about the Trinity is a great background for a very bright rainbow quilt, 






I finally finished this blouse 
and like it so much that I am wearing it right now,  I think I will wear it a lot this fall.














I ordered some bath sheets from amazon and when I opened the box, it was a funny surprise to see the towels cushioned with those pesky air pocket things. And thankfully, neither towel was smashed or chipped with their careful packaging,

  1. LOL, that is funny!!! It would have been sad to return towels due to damage;-)

    Goodness that quilt is huge...didn't look that big in yesterday's photo. I'm thinking great to use as a tent, as kids we were always using quilts/blankets for tents. Love how God is in your quilt..nice.

  4. Oh my the quilt is lovely, but he is absolutely adorable!

    Packaging is amazing; isn't it? I would think they could cut costs, reduce waste, and have more customers just by reducing it...lol. But I admit amazon is so convenient!

  8. Your grandson is a cutie! Love the quilt. I like lots of color and I really like how you did the blocks and the colors make an angle row. They sure did a good job packaging. Blouse looks like it would be comfortable.

  12. How funny that they would air pocket towels, what a waste of packaging! I use a rubebermaid storage container (the kind with drawers) for my bathroom stockups that fits perfectly in the large 2nd bathroom linen closet bottom. Cheers!
