Done! 8-)

Got Lilly's X-Bag win done today... All I had to finish was the button hole... which I had to figure out how to do on my Pfaffy... My old machine was some simpler, but I figured it out! 8-)
Three pockets. I lined it with a pink stripe. Originally I thought to bind it with the stripe, but it was not to be... 8-)
I shall be mailing it off to Lilly on Tuesday due to our Victoria Day long weekend, so she should receive it by next week Monday/Tuesday I am thinking... We shall see! 8-)

Last night we went out for dinner, at The Keg, with our good friends W & J. We celebrated a big 50 birthday... Our meals were great! 8-)

I made the fur-girls a little stuffed arctic fleece pillow-like object to play with... Kept them busy for about 10 minutes... 8-)

Dora loves to chew all toys, especially Ruby's, to destruction, and I have found that arctic fleece seems to stand up better than any other item the girls might play with... I plan to make arctic fleece pillow covers for their pillows too... we'll see how that goes... 8-)

Anyone ever heard of a Tulip Tree? I haven't! Pop on over to Brenda's blog and have a look! Awesome!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
Time for me to move on to my next deadline project! 8-)

Over here in southern Ont. the tulip tree was another name for the magnolia. I see the X-bag turned out great. I love the pink striped lining.

Lucky Lilly indeed! The bag turned out gorgeous! And how clever of you make a toy from the fleece. My sweet golden loved his stuff animals sooo much, and they weren't broken in until he unstuffed them..then they were perfect. And yes, I've heard of Tulip Trees. they are beautiful. I'm not sure we have them here in WI, but I saw several while living in MI. Hugs, Finn
