spring to finish

I've decided to join the Spring to Finish 2 hosted by Jacquie. I have so many unfinished projects and I really need the motivation to finish them. I figured if I write it down I'll be more committed to finishing them up. Among them are :

a special quilt for John
a quilt from Amanda Jean's first quilt along (how long ago was that!?!)
Isaiah's quilt
Mother's Day gifts
oh, and several bags and dopp kits

I'm sure there's more, but I'm going to focus on getting through this list first. I just checked and I can't believe that quilt along was a year and a half ago! Crazy. Time to get on it!

I have done some sewing the last few days. I finished up my 16 nine patches for the three by three swap hosted by Anina. These are a lot of fun to make and you can make a lot of them pretty quickly.

I also finished up these two reusable snack bags. One with this adorable owl fabric and one with some dinosaur fabric I've had around for a while. They're both in the shop if you're interested.

Ok, that's all for now. I'm headed to the farmer's market to get some fresh donuts and it looks like the sun is finally out. whoohooo! I'm sick of rain!

I love your nine patches. I already have a bunch back and I think these quilts are going to be great. Those little snack bags are great.

Love those blocks and the snack bags! My want to do list stretches from here to infinity. It's really insane. BTW - I'm giving away a linen tote over at my site, come leave me a comment to enter!
