Busy Busy

I've been really busy lately; I've had a hard time keeping up with reading and writing the blogs. I did want to take the time to post about my friend Kathleen Murphy going to Houston this week. She entered her really cool Round Robin into the show and won a prize for group entry! She won't know until the awards ceremony what she actually won, but it is such a nice honor that frankly I don't think it matters to her. Her Round Robin was different than most Round Robins as it was of her house. She also makes really great bags and sells them at the Etsy shop (you can link to her blog to see her winning quilt and go to her shop from my blog list.)

I wanted to send her off with a little something, but because she makes her own bags, I didn't want to make her another bag. So.....I made her a quilted cell phone bag, cosmetic bag, and threw in some little stuff for good measure. It was fun, like filling a Christmas stocking!
Update: I just got off the phone with Kathleen and she won 2nd place in group entry! Exciting news!
