My lucky day!

Today I am proud to say that I am the featured blogger in Gooseberry Patch's Featured Fridays! Those of you who have been reading this blog for awhile know that I am a BIG time GP fan! I have been published in Harvest Kitchen, and I am also going to be in an upcoming cookbook that I cannot wait to see! For those of you who are new, welcome! I am so glad that you stopped by! My blog is mostly about my family, quilting and crafting, with a little bit of cooking, shopping and decorating thrown in for good measure. So hang out awhile with me...and I'd love to see you stick around!


Come see what I made! It's a cute little wallet to go with my new purse. I had gotten this pattern a few months ago, you may recall...

And I made my sister one of them for her birthday last month. So yesterday I got out a few fat quarters, a zipper, and some heavy interfacing and got to work. It's a fun, rewarding project...except for turning it right side out. Oh my! That interfacing made it really stiff.

But, thanks to Pam, I had this to the rescue! (sorry for the blurry-ness)

And ta-da! That 4-in-1 tool works like a dream. I may have even used the seam-ripper part a time or four. Anyway, a wallet that's the perfect little size for a few credit cards, coins and bills. I'll probably add a button or two to the tab, for decoration, but for now, it's done!

All right people, I'm headed outside to see what's happening with my bulbs! Have a happy day!

  1. That wallet is adorable. I want to make one!!
    Swinging by from GBP. I am a fellow GBP lover too. I can't get enough of their books!
    Have a fabulous weekend.

  2. Great post as an introduction to your blog, Jen! The fabrics are so springy it.

  3. There one GP recipe I want to make (newspaper insert) but I've never looked at or own any of their recipe books.

    That wallet is too cute! I was going to get that pattern from the FQS but skipped it as it has a zipper in it and I have no idea how to sew a zipper! Is it easy??

  4. Such a cute wallet Jen! And I love the crunched up ball of wallet picture. Whenever I am turning something right side out it looks like that and I'm always amazed that it turns out ok in the end. x

  5. WOW--congrads on the gooseberry patch article --way to go!!! So you can "cook" too--we will really have to meet--about lunch time I think??
    Love the little wallet--looks so cute--is there any money in it--after the lunch we can go shopping!!!!

  7. That is so cute. I just love your blog, I just found it and I am glad I did. I love everything you make, you are so creative. Everything is just so pretty. I am from NY too and I had no idea there was a Hobby Lobby in Poughkeepsie till I read your blog. Thanks for the info. xoxo
