Love the feeling!

 I love the feeling of accomplishment when I actually complete a project!  This little fabric bowl was made for my friend, Janine.  It is a microwave bowl put the bowl in the holder, heat whatever in the microwave, and it saves you burned fingers from hot bowls.  I made her a set of 2.  One started at 10 inches and the other at 8 inches.  I knew the 6 inch one would just be too hard to work with and probably never used so I eliminated it from the package.
 A few blogs ago I showed you the start of this quilt......just the 10 inch squares sewn together.  I am always so amazed at what beauty comes from such a humble start when using the Twister ruler.  I am now making tiny Twisters to go all around for a border.  Hopefully show that in a week (or so).
 I got this quilt back from the quilter and hurried and put the binding on so I could give it away today.  It is soooo cold here that I thought the high school graduate could use it early.  She was very happy as you can see from the picture below.
 She is such a happy, bubbly girl and so I thought this cheerful quilt would be perfect for her.
Several posts ago I showed this quilt.  Today I gave it to another graduate.  He was so surprised and excited.  I've decided I give these quilts for the hugs I get back from these amazing youth.

Now that I feel all warm and fuzzy inside from my experiences tonight, I can hardly wait to get back to sewing and complete another gift for someone special.

Happy Quilting!                     Lynda
