Quicky Mother's Day Gift...

I am still playing with my blog so please bear with me .. will have to live with this for awhile and see if I like it, but it is late and I am heading for bed..again.)

On Friday, my DDIL e-mailed me that she and DS/DGD would be at their new home on Saturday and would love to show it off (newly bought, no move yet).  This would also give me a chance to give her the journal blocks I had ready for her to write on..Not sure when she will get a chance to work on those with everything going on for awhile, but at least she would have it.

I am not very good at  "quicky" gift making, but found this in Simple Quilts & Sewing (from Quilt Magazine).  It said it would only take me 30 minutes so of course it took me about an hour of actual sewing.. but I did finish it in time to take with me Saturday morning (without the dish).


It's called a Cozy Carrier.  Didn't have time or supplies to put an insulated liner in it.  But it turned out okay for a first try.  BTW, this is one of the fabrics in my 100th post giveaway (way back when) that was not chosen..I'm glad it stayed with me now...


More on Mother's Day tomorrow.... now to dentist appointment with DH (his, not mine).

See - that fabric had a purpose. I think it is perfect for a dish carrier - what a great idea for a quick project gift - with dish of course.
