August just can't be over...

 ...it can't possibly be September already.
My August goal for ALYoF was finished a few weeks ago...
...it was turning out so cute, just had to get it finished.
Now I'm working on a few more...making a few for gifts.

I took the clothes pin bag to the AQS Quilt show
in Grand Rapids Michigan
and stopped by the Red Button Quilt Co. booth
to share my excitement with Sara's mom, Emily.

The mother/daughter team are so talented...I love their patterns.
Emily's company is Red Button Quilt Co.
Sara's company is Blueberry Backroads
Check them out...both companaies offer lots of cuteness!!!

Playing with some new embroider designs...

A tea towel with some yummy blueberries and a 
simple crocheted edging.
The pattern is The Berry Patch.
The pattern for the embroidery on the clothes pin bag
is Grandma's Back Yard.
I can see myself making a few more of these for gifts.

I love clothes line embroideries and when
I find a new design I end up making another clothes pin bag.

I've made a few over the last few years...
which one is your favorite?

here they are all in a row...
I'd say they are all looking pretty cute.

The middle one was a practice one...plain and simple.
Then I added ruffles and an extra pocket and that is
the one I use...(second from the right).
My favorites are the ones with the embroideries.
I have lots and lots of clothes pins and 
most of them are stored in
a log cabin.
I love it!!
